We’ve spent this past weekend celebrating everything American: from freedom to barbecues and fireworks. So lets keep that national pride going by focusing our efforts to shop for American-made products!

After years of outsourcing for cheap labor, the country as a whole has seen a “small, but growing trend” of locally-made and sourced products, according to Fashionista. There’s a demand for products that are produced nearby, keeping jobs and business within our borders. We’ve found some of our favorite companies across the country that pride themselves on being 100% locally made, so you can feel good about getting great stuff that goes back into American pockets.

There’s nothing quite like a good history lesson but text books can end up being such a bore. This book is a little bit different though. Author Josh Kun released his new book, To Live and Dine in LA: Menus and the Making of the Modern City, on June 13th and it’s full of a vast history of LA’s food scene told through menus. From the design, to the location, to the food on the menu, Josh is painting a beautiful portrait of LA and the different restaurants that have inhabited the city over the years.

Offbeat Travel — America’s Ghost Towns

When I was 12, my family decided that our vacation that year would be spent in Arizona. Determined to see as much of the state as we could in a week, I have general memories of cool resorts, really really good pancakes and of course the Grand Canyon. One spot in particular that left an impression was Jerome, or the “Largest Ghost Town in America.”

Since then, I’ve been fascinated by ghost towns. Some are more attraction-oriented, and others are perfect for history buffs, photographers or explorers. Whether you’re planning a long drive or quick trip out of town, here are some cool historical sites to bring some old-timey spook into your summer.

1. Forget the subway for once. Of all the ways to commute to Manhattan, the air tram from Roosevelt Island has to be the most fun. Take it and enjoy the views as you make your way to Midtown.

2. Who doesn’t love browsing a good flea market? The Brooklyn Flea is the perfect mix of local artisans and vintage sellers. Foodies—go hungry and enjoy everything from lobster rolls to snow cones.

3. Only opened in the summer, Governors Island is an island just off the coast of the southern tip of Manhattan. Ride bicycles, enjoy large art installations and explore this former military base.

Yea, yea, yea Millennium Park and The Bean (officially Cloud Gate) are awesome, as is shopping the Magnificent Mile, but elbowing through the summer tourist crowds is not. There are so many unique places to explore in Chicago, which is truly a city of neighborhoods. If you’re anything like me, you rarely leave the 10-mile radius of your home, and stick to your neighborhood favorites when going out. Summer is most definitely the best time to explore Chicago. If you’re longing for a vacation or weekend getaway, but don’t have the time or money—give a Chicago staycation a try!
