Staring into the Fresnal lens atop Absecon Lighthouse is like looking into a giant, all-seeing eye?one that's guarded New Jersey for more than 150 years. It was 1857 when a lighthouse keeper first climbed the tower's 228 steps and brought the lens to life, offering safe passage to ships and fish with poor night vision. In 1999, the tower opened to the public, solidifying Absecon Lighthouse's current role as a museum and educational center.

Today, Absecon Lighthouse lets visitors climb its spiral staircase and gaze out from the third tallest lighthouse in the United States. Beyond the view, expansive grounds house a replica of the original keeper's dwelling, as well as several exhibits showcasing photos from the 1800s, info on shipwrecks, and much more. Absecon Lighthouse also hosts fun and offbeat events, from fashion shows to murder mysteries.

As the only venue in the revered chain to be built vertically rather than free floating, House of Blues Houston stands as a pillar of entertainment in the Houston Pavilions complex. The hot spot’s Bronze Peacock Room commemorates Houston's rich history and the blues clubs where Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Mama Thornton held sway, and features an enormous hand-painted mural depicting other local legends such as Albert Collins and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.

It was 1978. A college dropout and a failed medical-school applicant had just brought together their combined life savings to rent an old gas station. Their plan was to resurrect the empty station and open their own restaurant. Their specialty: ice cream. So begins the story of legendary entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who are better known across the globe as Ben & Jerry. Their small, old-fashioned ice-cream parlor eventually became a Burlington, Vermont favorite, and before long, shops popped up all over the U.S. and in 25 other countries. Their brand easily attracted customers––homemade ice cream churned from wholesome, natural ingredients and blended into creative flavors. Some of their popular scoops include Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, and Coffee Caramel Buzz.

Since infusing their first rich and creamy batches of ice cream with natural chunks of fruit, nuts, candies, and cookies, Ben and Jerry have also operated with a commitment to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and internationally. They practice sustainable food production and business practices that respect the earth and environment. Ben & Jerry’s cartons are made from FSC-certified paper, which comes from forests that are managed for the protection of wildlife, and waste from Ben & Jerry’s plants generates energy to power farms. The company works tirelessly to reduce its carbon emissions; it strongly encourages customers to eat their ice cream in the darkest dark.

Wine, beer, whiskey?and whisky?if it's a craft beverage, Atlantic City Bottle Company has got it in stock. On the beer side of the equation come packs of such brews as the rich and rugged Stone Smoked Porter, the heavily malted Rogue Dead Guy, and Elysium's hopped-up masterpiece The Immortal IPA. Distillers from all over the world supply a rainbow of whiskeys, from the ruddy tang of Bowman Brothers' small batch bourbon to the thick golden glory of Highland Park's 18-year expression. Oenophiles and vampires trying to keep up the illusion can select wines from all over the globe, including varietals from wine countries in California, France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, and Argentina. And besides bottles to take home, all of these fine beverages may be sampled in a tasting menu at the Iron Room: Atlantic City Bottle Company's in-store restaurant where chef Kevin Cronin serves charcuteries, artisanal cheeses, game meats, and his specialty Flat Iron Burger.
