1. The Brooklyn Kitchen
This Brooklyn, N.Y. cooking store offers a variety of tools and equipment, as well as recreational cooking classes. Peter Litschi and Anthony Falco, chefs at Roberta's in Bushwick, teach everything from pizza to fresh pasta to sushi, and even offer lessons in knife skills.
2. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
This Cleveland, O.H. staple has something very new and very exciting going on in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall: a fashion exhibit centered on Beyoncé. The exhibit includes the outfit from Queen Bey's Super Bowl performance, the Givenchy gown she wore the 2012 Met Gala, and full costumes from legendary music videos like "Single Ladies" and "Crazy in Love," among iconic pieces from the likes of Michael Jackson, David Bowie, and Bruce Springsteen.
3. Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium
For an alternative bar experience, head over to this church-themed bar and art gallery in Atlanta, G.A. The owner's invented tale of a runaway nun is complete with a full bar, church organ karaoke, and original artwork both for admiration and for purchase.
4. AMC Dine-In Theaters
Forget the movie with a side of popcorn — AMC Dine-In Theaters now offer premium movie theatre-restaurants with luxurious recliners, an extensive menu, a full cocktail bar, and service with the push of a button. Current locations include Phoenix, A.Z., Creve Coeur, M.O., Olathe, K.S., and Grapevine, T.X., with more listed on the website.
5. Adler Planetarium
Knock off an outer space-filled day from your summer bucket list with the first one built in the country and entire Western Hemisphere, and the oldest left in existence. Recent renovations have left this Chicago, I.L. location with three theaters equipped with some of the most technologically advanced equipment available.
6. Frost Ice Bar
There's no better way to cool off than in a room completely made of ice — Boston's year-round ice bar remains the world's largrest permant indoor and includes ice walls, floors, furniture, and drinking glasses. It's so chilled at 21 degrees Farenheit, guests will be happy to put on their insulted purple parkas and gloves.
7. Wynn Resort and Casino
The best place to beat that desert heat in Nevada is, of course, in a Las Vegas casino. The Wynn is a classic spot for some gambling, but few people know it's also home to a relaxing (and beautiful) Koi pond.
8. Botanical Center
Pop inside New England's largest indoor gardens located in Provide, R.I., complete with a waterfall and the fragrance of flowers from all around the world. It's located in Roger Williams Park, which also has a museum and casino.
9. Magic Hat Brewery
This South Burlington, V.T. brewery cranks out 400 bottles of beer every minute, though it calls its beverages "elixirs" while visitors tour the "artifactory." And bonus: dogs are welcome.
10. Black Stallion Winery
If wine's more your thing, you'll love the Black Stallion Winery in the Napa Valley of California. Named after a historic equestrian center, the indoor track still has remnants of the original 26 horse stalls among the winemaking production.
