For years, David Allison and Ryan Gerster—both standup comedians—worked as bartenders and cooks at bars and pubs, alternating work nights with comedy gigs. So when they decided to team up and take the reins at First Ward House, a storied saloon first opened as a hotel in 1878, they already had a vision for the place. "We've worked in bars and we know what people want," Allison told a writer for St. Joseph News-Press. Their formula consists of a broad selection of beers and spirits, live bands, and nourishment that ranges from specialty burgers to late-night pulled-pork tacos.

Dark wood floors and exposed brick walls lend First Ward House a timeless ambiance in which visitors can entertain themselves with games of Keno, billiards, and pool. With its close proximity to the historic French River Trade Route and the paths of the Pony Express, the pub is rumored to be haunted by spirits who finish patrons' beers when they're not looking.

The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.

Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.

From the city in which Arbor Day originated, Kimmel Orchard & Vineyard has managed to preserve a legacy that originally began in 1925, when orchard founder Richard Kimmel and his wife Laurine planted their first apple and cherry trees. In a place where there's no shortage of love for agriculture, the orchard has thrived, vastly expanding to eventually grow not only fruit, but also vegetables and many grape varieties. Aside from growing and harvesting crops, the facility also hosts the Kimmel Education and Research Center, which is a staple of the organization that strives to educate and interact with the community.

Wooden beams and stone walls set a traditional scene inside Catfish Lake, and that ambiance meshes well with a menu of fresh seafood, hand-cut steaks, and other classic American cuisine. In addition to crisp fillets of fried walleye and catfish, diners can savor hand-breaded fried chicken, alaskan king crab legs, and slow-roasted prime rib au jus that's carved onto sandwiches.
