You spent 2014 skipping across the globe: Trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro, learning Muay Thai in Thailand, navigating the streets of an old Polish town. That's great and all, but you're missing out on some amazing finds on home turf. Skip the twelve-hour flights and enormous carbon footprints, opting instead to revisit classic gems and emerging hot spots around the United States.
