It was back in 1988 on the Southside of Indianapolis in Greenwood when the Haas family took over the operation of Jack's Pizza. Since then, they've sated the Indianapolis area's pizza cravings with fresh and tasty ingredients. Vegetables such as banana peppers and roma tomatoes are procured from local vendors and served fresh—never frozen. The Italian sausage is made without fillers, and the cheese is real mozzarella. Breadsticks are almost a meal unto themselves: they come stuffed with pepperoni and cheese and coated with garlic butter and parmesan. Strombolis and wings round out the menu.

Sequestered in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, 1862 David Walley’s centers around its seven natural, hot mineral springs and pools. During winter months, guests lounge in the bubbling pools and take in panoramic views of snowcapped peaks. David Walley’s is also home to its eponymous restaurant, with menu of casual fine-dining dishes that complement a wine list noted for earning Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence in 2012. Entrees include grilled swordfish on horseradish mashed potatoes, and braised lamb shank on saffron-orzo pasta. Around the resort, world-class skiing routes host dozens of snowboarders and skiers, with hundreds of miles of snowmobiling, hiking and mountain bike trails. In summer, hot-air ballooning, wakeboarding, and water skiing are favorite pastimes while guides lead horseback sojourns through the many nearby trails.

South Tahoe sparkles during the day and then again at night. Day trips to Emerald Bay State Park make for fantastic photo opportunities of the lake as it shimmers within a bowl of glacier-carved granite. Autumn in Lake Tahoe affords some of the best mountain-biking opportunities in the country, and winter brings in the ski bunnies with nearby slopes that provide complimentary shuttle service to the hotel. Snow-shoers and hikers can take in the staggering Glen Alpine Falls, which cascade 65 feet down the rock face and provide sightseers with beautiful views, natural sounds, and free legal advice. Evening jaunts out on the town among the glimmering nightclubs and casinos pave the streets silver with slot-machine earnings.

Pan-fried pot stickers burst with a filling of tasty meat and vegetables ($3.99 for six) and, when paired with fried tempura shrimp ($4.99 for six), demolish international side-dish-specific cravings.
