Your floors will never be the same.
America’s National Parks are a treasure. While there are currently 62 of the “big” National Parks (think Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon), the National Park Service is filled with National Forests, National Battlefields, National Historic Landmarks, and more. While not every state is home to one of the official national parks, each state in the union has at least one site that is run by the National Park system that you should put on your list.
Blockbuster movies can instantly create a lasting image of what a state may look like, even in the cases where it didn’t film on location, or the quaint and charming town was totally fictional. It's called movie magic. To find the most popular movie in each state we took data (yes, numbers!) from Box Office Mojo’s lifetime and current movie grossing lists, along with IMDB rankings, Rotten Tomatoes, and in a few cases, we had to make some tough judgement calls.
Nothing screams summer quite like a splash of color, and the designers who decked out this year’s fourth annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach (on view virtually and in-person through May 9) went all in. From Alexandra Naranjo’s floral fantasia bathroom and Nina Magon’s all-pink boudoir, to Ellen Kavanaugh’s second-story terrace bar that oozes ’70s beach club glamour, the entire 4,400-square-foot villa in West Palm Beach, Florida, gives a playful wink to the carefree days of sunshine season.
There’s no better way to learn more about a new city or small town on a road trip than getting a taste of their local delicacies. In the heart of barbecue country, Alabama is home to its whole smoked chickens and rare mayo-based white barbecue sauce. While Mr. Claus might not put you on the nice list for this, spicy sausage links from reindeer meat in sandwiches are hard to come across.
From attorney fees to inspections, there are a number of costs that take first-time-buyers by surprise.
You don't want to miss these American treasures. National Parks to amusement parks (abiding by social distancing and wearing a mask of course), local eats to historical sites, we want to see it all. You don't need to leave the country to experience natural wonders like Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, filled with lava fields, or staples of history like the house where Elvis Presley was born.
