How to get America's most crowded natural wonders to yourself

How to get America's most crowded natural wonders to yourself | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

Some tourist meccas are meant to be savored with a crush of people.

 

Entering the fray in Times Square, Bourbon Street and every other man-made wonder out there is all part of the experience. No one imagines enjoying Space Mountain or the San Antonio River Walk in solitude.

 

Then there are the natural wonders. Places that lend themselves to quiet marveling and meditative solitude … if it weren’t for the surging mass of humanity beside you shooting phone video, jockeying for position and thinking exactly what you are: "Imagine this place without crowds."

 

No, you won’t be getting Bright Angel Trail or Broadway (the one in Mammoth Cave), Yosemite Falls or those in Niagara, for that matter, to yourself these days.

 

But even at the most magnificently mobbed must-sees of nature, a little local intel can help bring you a step (or quick shuttle ride) closer to that ideal.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Gormet Chocolate Tour sounds fantastic! Two drawbacks for me: It is in San Francisco and we are in Georgia; it requires a 3-hour walking tour. Okay for me but not for hubby! :-( Are you up to it? Go for me and send me comments on your culinary walking tour!

10 best free bar snacks in the U.S.

10 best free bar snacks in the U.S. | Road Tripping | Scoop.it
Gratis bar food may be a dying tradition in some quarters, but these joints don't care about cost or mess.

 

Stale, contaminated nuts and pretzels served in a culture dish are standard fare in most bars.

 

But some establishments across the country aren't only taking their countertop cuisine to new levels -- bomboloni, gougères, croque monsieur! -- they've decided to give it to patrons on the house.

 

Gratis bar food may be a dying tradition in some quarters, but we found a number of joints that don't care about cost or mess, opting to dry your whistle before they wet it. Here are ten of the finest, for starters. Serve us up your own favorites.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Makes you want to visit just for the snacks! Wonder if they are free with a ginger ale...Um-m-m-m?
