Why: The cook knows his stuff. Kitchen is open 7 days a week 10 am to 9 pm. Very good, real Vietnamese food. Noodle bowls are all good if you can't decide on anything in particular. The fried shrimp comes with a very unique sauce that is perfect. Sun and Mon the bar opens their 4 pool tables up for free play. Fooseball, shuffle board, darts, free poker and live music can all be found at this bar, in addition to cool people. Located at 44th & Ward in Wheat Ridge. Easy access off I-70 by exiting at Kipling, Ward or Youngfield. A truck stop and Walmart are also very close.

Map-marker ‘Touch dinosaur bones still buried in the earth. ’ at Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison, CO

Why: Pay for the tour, it's cheap. Get a ride on the bus with a guided tour by a volunteer. Very interesting geology including footprints, tide pool ripples, dinosaur bones and a volcanic ash layer. Pay the cheap donation to go inside the museum and learn more details about the inland sea that stretched east from the Rockies to Oklahoma about 65 million years ago. Very easy to get to and close to historic Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Map-marker ‘Hike the Beaver Brook Trail’ at Golden in Golden, CO

Why: The trailhead is located in a saddle between Mt. Zion and Lookout Mnt. These are the stomping grounds for Buffalo Bill in the late 1800's. This trail is just over 8.6 miles of moderate terrain. It took me about 5.5 hours to hike it alone. I was picked up at the Chief Hosa exit on I-70. I would suggest going west from Golden because it seemed it would be more difficult if I had tried going east. Just an impression. Awesome views of the Continental Divide and the Front Range Foothills. Here is a link for more info.

Map-marker ‘EAT!!!’ at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY

Why: You should definitely dine at one of the CIA restaurants! The food is exquisite and I can guarantee you won't have a better fine dining experience for less - albeit the higher end restaurants can indeed be pricey, since they're "teaching restaurants" where students put into practice their class training, you'll still be paying much less than your typical highest end French or Italian place. For the budget minded, go for breakfast or lunch at their Apple Pie café, again terrific food, lower price point. They also give tours of the place for $6 per person (I lucked out and got a free one with a student friend) where you can watch classes through huge windows and receive explanations of who is doing what with the food and why, give brief explanations of different cooking techniques, everything literally from soup to nuts. If you love food, this is a really in depth and behind the scenes view of what really happens from ingredients to your final plate. One of the advantages of living in the Poughkeepsie area is that many students and grads from the CIA also work in the area (while searching for a better paying place haha) so there's many high quality places to eat in the area, but none better than the CIA itself.

Map-marker ‘Eat globally inspired, locally sourced "sushi"’ at Miya's Sushi in New Haven, CT

Why: The sushi is incredible. It is hard to even say "sushi," because so much on the menu doesn't resemble any kind of sushi I have had before. Don't miss the Kanibaba roll. They take these invasive crabs that are putting a strain on local ecosystems and weed them out. The crabs and local lobster are wrapped in potato, covered in havarti cheese and a lemon dill sauce and sprinkled with seaweed. It's unreal. Can you even call that sushi? Well, they do. The menu is as different as the dishes. You'll learn about ingredients from around the world, cultural tidbits and ecology. Plus, they are all about their community. When I visited, all the art on the walls was painted by local youth. And the owner is often in the restaurant, recommending his favorites to visitors and greeting locals like friends.

Map-marker ‘Go to "The Copper Mines" (Real name: The Elizabeth Mine)’ at Strafford in Strafford, VT

Why: Located about 20 miles from Hanover, NH, the abandoned mine is the site of one flooded quarry, which is surrounded by a series of ledges from which people leap into the bright, blue water below. The high levels of metal in the water explain the pool's peculiar color. The deep blue color, water clarity and almost total lack of any plant or animal life in the main swimming hole there is because the water has such high levels of copper dissolved in it. Water from rain and snowmelt leeches metal from the waste rock of the mine and then collects in the quarry, but the water is not highly dangerous according to doctors in the area. Technically, the mine is "private property" but idk who owns it / enforces this / hundreds of college kids go swimming there each year. Probably way too cold to go swimming now, but it's a sight worth seeing!
