Clearest waters in the United States

Swimming pools are nice and all, but nothing beats swimming in wild waters, be they rivers, springs, or oceans. Whether you bathe for ritual purposes, for exercise, for the fun of it, or because it’s so trendy some call it “the new yoga,” wild swimming is best enjoyed in clear water where you can see the marine life and the rock formations below you. There are many bodies of crystal-clear water in the US, but we selected the nine most beautiful to encourage you to take a plunge in the great o...

You Still Cannot Pump Fuel Into Your Vehicle in New Jersey

After crossing the Delaware River via the Delaware Memorial Bridge on Interstate 295 northbound, I drove off the highway on the exit for United States Highway 40 to fill up my rental car with gasoline — but as I had not driven in New Jersey in years, I had momentarily forgotten on that cold and sunny day that I did not have to get out of the car because motorists still are not allowed to use the fuel pumps throughout the state. Effective as of Monday, January 1, 2018 at 12:01 in the morning, the...

Tips for edible mushroom hunting

In Oregon’s coastal forests, hikers enter an ecosystem fed by frequent rain and moderate temperatures, where enormous evergreen trees thrive and support wildlife, mosses, and — most tantalizingly for enthusiasts of both food and the outdoors — several types of edible mushrooms. Mushroom hunting takes hiking to a whole new level. Hiking taken to a new level Photo: Laszlo Dobos/Shutterstock Hiking on trails, you feel enveloped by verdant life, but when you step off the trail, your sense of...

25+ of the Best State Parks in the USA

While the National Parks of the USA are famous for awe-inspiring scenery, don’t overlook the country’s lesser-known State Parks. Catherine shares her picks for 25+ of the Best State Parks in the USA from coast to coast. If you want to experience the natural beauty of a country, heading to protected parks should be a priority. Often, the government prevents the development of these properties, allowing wildlife to thrive and supporting native plant species. In the United States, there are actua...

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

Best spring break trips in the US

You don’t have to do five-story beer bongs off a beachfront balcony to have a great spring break. Though let’s be honest, it’s a better story if you do. The annual respite from school and work that runs from the beginning of March to mid-April is one of the great American traditions, where college kids create memories they won’t remember, and families finally have time for some peace and quiet. Even if you can’t afford a week of debauchery in Mexico or a family jaunt to Europe, each state has...

As a traveler navigating via RV, you can decide where you want to go and what you want to see as you drive. Furthermore, you can see much more on a long road trip compared to taking nature day trips.

Amtrak stuck for 36 hours in Oregon

An Amtrak train stranded for 36 hours, with 183 people on board, has finally returned to Eugene, Oregon. But not without its fair share of hardship. While the train was en route to Los Angeles on Sunday, it hit a tree that had fallen onto the tracks and was rendered inoperable. Heavy snowfall covering the tracks further complicated matters, turning the ride into a 36-hour ordeal. Tim McMahan, a spokesperson for Union Pacific Railroad, told CNN that the train ceased working in Oakridge, Orego...

Best weed dispensaries in the US

Recreational cannabis is legal in 10 states, and a number of states like New York and New Jersey are in the process of legalizing. And it’s not just for the locals — cannabis tourism has shifted from something you did once while in Amsterdam to something you can do without leaving the US. For people new to the idea of legal weed, the novelty of being able to stroll into a business and walk out with a bag of marijuana will be cool the first couple of times you do it no matter which shop you go...

The Hidden Benefits of Tasting Events | By Larry Mogelonsky

Finding myself away at a mountain resort for a food and wine festival last year, it was the perfect opportunity to not only participate in a wine tasting conducted by a vintner from a prominent Oregon winery as well as reflect upon the staying power of these types of events.

Senate passes conservation bill

In a surprising display of bipartisan effort, a new bill passed the US Senate on Tuesday calling for the enlargement of Joshua Tree and Death Valley national parks. The bill will also give government protections to several river landscapes in California and Utah, as well as over a million acres of new wilderness and conservation areas across the western US. The Natural Resources Management Act passed 92-8 in the Senate — a surprising landslide considering the reluctance of the Republican-cont...

Saudi app Ashber lets men track

A Saudi mobile app has recently come under fire for facilitating the oppression of Saudi women. The app was inspired by Saudi Arabia’s strict “guardianship laws,” which hold that every Saudi woman must have a male “guardian,” regardless of age, education level, or marital status; this person has the ultimate say in a variety of life choices and activities such as enrolling in school, opening a bank account, working outside of the home, and getting a passport, among others. Launched in 2015 ...

La Serena, Its Giant Lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean

I’m glad I took a chance on La Serena—it paid off. You never know, with coastal cities. Sometimes, the beach locals rave about is small and dirty, sometimes you end up in a tiny, overpriced town along with hordes of tourists, sometimes port cities are run down and dodgy. But La Serena is lovely. I didn’t have a map, so after dropping off my backpack in the spare bedroom, I headed straight to what looked like the main avenue, Francisco de Aguirre. There were two signs: “Plaza de Armas,” straight,...

Wine tasting in Virginia

Wine wasn’t the first thing on the minds of the initial English settlers who reached the shores of Jamestown in 1607, but it also wasn’t the last. Captain John Smith wrote about America’s native grapes just two years later, kicking off interest in what would eventually become the oldest wine growing region in the US. More than 400 years later, wine is still very much on the minds of Virginians — one might say more now than ever before. Virginia is the sixth largest wine grape producer in the...

Is CBD legal? CBD oil laws

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is seemingly everywhere. The market boomed in 2018, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The Brightfield Group, a cannabis industry company, estimates that the value of the CBD industry will reach $22 billion by 2022 — and that doesn’t include any products with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Yet there’s still a major issue plaguing CBD use across every state: its legality. To understand if it’s legal or not, you need to first know what...

Google Trends Super Bowl foods

Lists along the lines of “the favorite thing in every state” are fun. They’re fun to identify with and even more fun to argue about. That’s why so many publications (including the one you’re reading now) write them. There’s just one problem: It’s all too easy to get lists about the top/best/favorite thing in all 50 states wrong. Case in point is a Google Trends map about what everyone is eating for the Super Bowl. The map purports to show the “uniquely searched Super Bowl recipes by state” in...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

What is baijiu: Everything to know

There’s a good chance that you’re familiar with vodka and whiskey. It’s possible you’re familiar with mezcal and various types of amaro. But even people who know their way around a bar are usually unfamiliar with baijiu, ironically, the most popular spirit in the world. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to learn about China’s national liquor. As Derek Sandhaus, the co-founder of baijiu brand Ming River and the author of Baijiu: The Essential Guide to Chinese Spirits, wrote in his book...
