Pilar Chavez has long believed that feeling good about one's appearance is a spiritually uplifting experience. So in 1984, beneath the swaying palms of Farmersville, California, Pilar opened an eponymous salon that fosters joy through beauty. Amid teal walls and fully stocked product displays, Pilar and her styling team transform bland hairdos into flattering coifs with multidimensional color. Additionally, they spiff up nails with mani-pedis, remove body hair with wax, and simulate natural tans with airbrush bronzers or paintbrushes and chocolate syrup.
The Sequoia Shuttle whisks its passengers from Visalia to Sequoia National Park, a 400,000-acre nature preserve that houses General Sherman, the largest tree in the world. During rides, an informational video prepares riders for the natural wonders ahead, ensuring that the trees’ height doesn’t intimidate insecure basketball stars. Once in the park, visitors choose from three free in-park routes, which provide easy access to campgrounds, parking lots, and landmarks such as the Crescent Meadow and the Giant Forest Museum. The Sequoia Shuttle cuts down on the exhaust fumes and noise pollution that private vehicles inject into the park atmosphere, preserving a peaceful environment where critters can roam and trees can nurse their woodpecker-induced concussions.

Like the Belgian consulate inconveniently built in Fenway Park?s center field, Monet's acts a cozy enclave of Europe on American soil. Its French chef works diligently to mirror that inimitable vibe with dish after dish of grilled salmon with portobello ravioli, croque monsieur sandwiches, sweet and savory crepes, and ciabatta pizzas topped with tapenade, pestos, capers, and roasted garlic. Sidewalk seating adds a drizzle of fresh air to desserts of creme brul?e and French apple tart, but Monet?s interior keeps the atmosphere intimate with tin ceilings, chocolate-colored wooden tables, soft candlelight, and an extensive list of wines.
