Top 10 U.S. Spots to Visit in 2014

Intrepid travelers need not leave the United States to find distinctive cities, spectacular open spaces and wide beaches to explore. Lonely Planet's top 10 U.S. destinations for 2014 are all available without clearing customs, including long-beloved destinations, spots commemorating important events in 2014 and significant regional spots that deserve your attention. "Lonely Planet's top U.S. destinations is an annual list of places that travelers should add to their wish lists specifically for the coming year. They're not necessarily the must-see places, lest New York City be on the list every year," says Emily Wolman, Lonely Planet editor-at-large. "We dig deeper and shine a light on destinations that are emerging, perhaps historically overlooked, and/or experiencing something wonderful in the coming year. These destinations aren't necessarily where U.S. travelers are going in 2014, but where they should go in 2014." The list is more art than science.

11 Dishes You Should NEVER Order on a First Date

When it comes to dining with people that aren’t our coworkers, we try to be as nonjudgmental as possible (well…sometimes). But when we’re going on a dinner date with someone, we can’t help it. Who knows—this could be our future spouse, and we couldn’t imagine spending the rest of our lives with someone who only orders boneless chicken breast and salad at restaurants (not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that). And if first impressions are as important as they’re said to be, what you order speaks volumes about who you are. Plus, there are just some things—for sex appeal’s sake—you shouldn’t touch when you’re trying to seal the deal.

The 15 Best and Worst Series Finales in TV History

TV show finales often become the forgotten leftovers of shows that either ran too long for their own good, or didn’t run long enough to gather a following that would even remember them. But there are some series finales that do get noted, finales that capped off shows that were smash hits — shows that dodged sharks and still managed to remain on the air long enough to matter. When a much-loved show ends, fans want it to end a certain way, and the final episode can mean the difference between a happy audience and one that refuses to buy the DVDs afterward out of pure spite. These are the 15 best — and worst — series finales in TV History.

5 Signs Kids are Struggling with Entitlement

I finally wrapped a couple of gifts and put them under the tree. I don’t know about your house, but the minute I do this every year, my kids get really interested in what’s happening under the tree. Curiosity kills my kids. And the cat. “Mom, when are you taking us shopping to buy gifts for you and Dad?” one of my kids asked. “Do you have money to buy gifts?” I asked. Eery silence.

10 Best Bowls of Pho in Metro Phoenix

A Vietnamese dish incorporating Chinese flavors and French style, pho is a beef broth soup of rice noodles, vegetables, and meat. Typically accompanied by garnishes, sides, and sauces, this meal is an interactive experience in which you, the eater, choose your own destiny of taste. You could do a bit more hoisin sauce for a sweet and savory soup, or a dash of sriracha on top of those bean sprouts, or even just plain and simple with a light squeeze of a lime. A derivative of the French pot-au-feu, or classic beef stew, the Vietnamese have made this soup their own, as is expressed in the many restaurants offering these hefty bowls around the Valley.

4 Things Not To Say To A Medical Marijuana Patient

If you happen to be a medical marijuana patient like me, you’re well aware that there are lots of folks who still harbor some enormous moral judgments about cannabis and those who use it medically — even in the states where it is legal. If you aren’t a patient, chances are you may either already know one, or soon will. As the acceptance of the medical use of pot grows, so does the number of patients choosing this option. So let’s talk about those moral judgments. Medical marijuana patients are too often given to understand that we should somehow feel vaguely guilty about the relief that we get through using the herb. We are given, intentionally or not, little cues which seem to carry the message “You are a little less than entirely acceptable to polite society.” To some of us, that feels a lot like “Why don’t those people just stay at home?” While “interacting” with a proudly ignorant Twitter user today, I was freshly reminded of this unfortunate dynamic, and it got me thinking about the same old tired, threadbare judgments and stereotypes that patients must deal with, over and over and over again.
