Looking for a fresh turn in their respective careers, Joe and Dawn Taylor planted the first grapes at Sleepy Creek Vineyards in 2002. In 2007 they opened the winery, where they sell their wines and swap stories with visitors. Amid 10 acres of expansive grapevines, a timber-frame barn houses the winery and tasting room. While sipping Sleepy Creek's varietals, guests can browse the gift shop, peruse the upstairs art gallery, and sample local cheeses from Ludwig Farmstead Creamery and Ropp Jersey Cheese. Above the winery, bed-and-breakfast-style accommodations allow visitors to relax amid the countryside and eavesdrop on rumors spreading through the grapevines outside.

So established is Circle K Midwest that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.

After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.

Misty and Josh Barnett, owners of Three J's Pizza, named their pizza joint after their three kids, Jeremiah, Joslyn, and Josiah. The family-minded eatery serves everything from the 10-topping Jaegar pizza to pastas, meatball sandwiches, homemade breadsticks, and cinnamon sticks. The kitchen staff even encourages customers to submit their own creations, whether they're topping combinations for pizza or blueprints for meatball-made houses.

There's plenty of room for storing popsicles within Marco’s Pizza's freezer, as the chefs opt for fresh ingredients when crafting the pizzeria staples on their menu. Their hands turn white with flour as they roll out dough for classic and thin-crust pizzas each day, all while breathing in the savory wafts of tomato sauce bubbling over a flame. To create the special-recipe sauce, the chefs assemble imported spices and three breeds of vine-ripened tomatoes. A blend of three cheeses, also never frozen or preserved between the pages of a thick book, top slathers of sauce and provide a soft bed for toppings such as steak, feta, and banana peppers.

On Sunday mornings, Baja Peninsula's cozy interior is home to diners eating dishes of homemade corned-beef hash crowned with poached eggs and stacks of lemon-ricotta pancakes topped with fresh strawberries and whipped butter. At midday, guests graze on steak quesadillas with sour cream and fresh pico de gallo and twirl forkfuls of shrimp fettuccine alfredo into giant, edible knots. In the evenings, Baja Peninsula's chefs lovingly churn out roasted herb chicken breast, seafood risotto dotted with jumbo shrimp, and slabs of cheesecake made fresh daily.
