 Horshoe Bend, Page, AZGrand Canyon Village, United StatesGet up close and personal with the edge

 Guanabanas RestaurantJupiter, United StatesAwesome!

 Geno’s SteaksPhiladelphia, United StatesDon’t listen to a word anyone says. When it comes to the Pat’s and Geno’s debate, neither cheesesteak reigns supreme.

Going to Geno’s is only good if you want to experience the following. 1.) Get insulted by staff over whether or not you want your cheesesteak “wit” or “wittout”. 2.) Destroy your digestive tract with an over-priced greaseball. 3.) Watch drunk South Philly residents fight in the middle of Passyunk Ave. Dine at your own risk.

 Glacier PointYosemite Village, United StatesGlacier Point gives you a breathtaking view of the infamous Half Dome, and you can either drive an hour or hike a few hours up the Four Mile trail to get here. It sits at over 7,200 feet, so in addition to your camera, bring an extra layer. #hike #nature #photoop

 Jump Off RockLaurel Park, United StatesThe parking lot is small but you’ve got about a million miles of sky to take in, so who cares, just get there early, park courteously and enjoy the view. Sunset is particularly lovely as the Blue Ridge Mountains cut a fine figure on the horizon. Expect plenty of selfie takers and more than a few photographers carrying heavy duty gear as they all wait for that perfect shot. Try looking at it without your phone though, that way you get the full experience.

 Mount CardiganOrange, United StatesI swear to god, the first time I climbed Mt. Cardigan, I thought I wasn’t going to make it. To be fair, it was my first “real” physical activity and I had just moved to the Granite State. Some hours after I embarked on the epic hike with my friends, I couldn’t have been happier, I mean, look at that view! Looks even better in fall when the leaves are turning. Go ahead and climb. If I can do it, so can you. Plus, going down is much easier (could be the satisfaction that comes with the view). #hiking #camping

 Great Sand Dunes National Park and PreserveSaguache County, United StatesDid you know the tallest sand dunes in North America are in Colorado? This place has massive dunes surrounded by snowy mountains and glacial waterfalls — just be sure to bring your adrenaline to climb up 750 feet of sand. #hiking

 Center for Civil and Human RightsAtlanta, United StatesWell done museum that covers the civil rights movement across the American south and the global human rights movement. Key positive agents are highlighted from both and serve as inspiration for society today. #atlanta #museums

 Fell’s pointBaltimore, United StatesTake the water taxi over from the Inner harbor and venture out to Fell’s Point. Historic meets hip here and there’s something for everyone. Come listen to live music, shop or go on a ghost tour. #free #history #open-late #fine-dining #cheap-eats #coffee

 Cave RockGlenbrook, United StatesOne of the best viewpoints of Lake Tahoe is actually really easy to access. The walk to the rock itself is probably less than 1/4 mile along an easy trail that only gets steep at the very end. To get there go up Cave Rock Drive and park in a pullout at the first 180 degree turn. The trail leads off to the north straight from the pullout. #hiking #views #viewpoint

 Blue Hole Regional ParkWimberley, United StatesThis is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon. The park has walking trails, and an area for swimming (with rope swings!). You must get there early though – there is a limit on how many people can swim at once, which is great as it keeps the crowds down. #swimming #lake #river #ropejump #relax #picnic #walking #trails

 Wildcat CampgroundBolinas, United StatesA 6 mile hike from the Bear Valley center will bring you to this excellent campground with stunning views. Choose your campsite wisely, our favorite is #6, and reserve in advance as this is a very popular campground. You can make a driftwood fire on the beach if you purchase a permit at Bear Valley. It is also a mile up the beach from the famed (getting to be too famed) Alamere Falls. Beautiful spot! #camping #hiking
