Quite possibly the greatest BBQ ever, not just in Memphis but anywhere else in this great nation as well. I'm not a dry rub fan, but I hear it's delicious. Stick with ribs drenched in their sauce and you'll be good to go.

Awesome brunch spot! The menu's pretty extensive and their chilaquiles are totally boss. You also can't pass up the chance for bottomless mimosas or bloody mary's, which the servers keep flowing even after your check arrives. The space is divided in two--a bar side and then a more open dining area in back, which gives enough room for a large group but also makes SIP a great place no matter the size of your party.

Pick Me Up isn't my favorite of Chicago's cafe's, but it's late hours definitely makes it an ideal spot for a late night meal or date location. Their pies are awesome, and the vibe is much chiller and laid back than most other places in Wrigleyville.

Halfcut is quickly becoming one of my favorite bars in OTR. The service is as awesome as the beer, and I really like the laid-back vibe of the place. Also where else can you get both beer and tacos from a walk-up window!?

Awesome food, and awesomely cheap. If you're looking for something quick and filling, check out Papa Hassan's and grab yourself the chicken shwarma.

The Jay is a total dive, but it's an Omaha landmark. My mom used to regale me with stories of her time at the Jay in college, and not much seems to have changed since, including their prices.

The Omaha Zoo is for real, and quite possibly one of the best zoos in the whole country. Located near the old College World Series stadium, the zoo is an affordable and awesome way to spend your day whether you're a local or just visiting Omaha.

Way off the beaten path, the Little Wild Horse Canyon is great for a day hike if you've already seen Goblin Valley State Park next door. Bring lots of water, and be prepared to do some tricky navigation on your own, since there aren't many sign posts along the way.

One of those classic things that you pretty much HAVE to see if you have any time at all while traveling along i-90. It's a hilarious photo op, and how many other green giants can you say you've been to?

The. Greatest. Hike. Ever. The views are jaw-dropping, the hike is exhausting, and the prospect of making your way to the top along support chains anchored into the rock is terrifying, but if you're up for it you absolutely have to do Angel's Landing.
