Part of the fun of travel is discovery—and that never gets old, no matter how many miles you roam. Some places can be famous locally or within select circles and remain undiscovered by the rest of us. Maybe it’s that tucked-away blues joint that everybody in town knows about but you’ve never heard of. It could be a big city attraction with a hidden gem; a secret bottle of sauce that will transform whatever you just ordered; or a mysterious mailbox on an undisturbed beach with no house in sight. What on earth? Some things you just have to see for yourself. So check out our discoveries and then make your own list. (And check it twice.)
