  • New Hampshire

    CATHEDRAL OF THE PINES

    From Prevention: “Pay tribute to the memory and honor of Americans who have served our nation at the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge. Visitors are invited to lay a stone in remembrance of the sacrifice made by our veterans. Every president since President Truman has left a stone.”

  • Vermont

    THE DOG CHAPEL

    From Prevention: “The World’s Only Dog Chapel is a must-visit for anyone who has known and loved a pooch of their own. Built in 1997, the chapel was built as a way to reflect on the relationship between people and dogs.”

  • Maine

    SEASHORE TROLLY MUSEUM

    From Prevention: ‘The Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine, is the oldest and largest electric railway museum in the world. You’re probably asking: “But can I ride a trolley?” The answer is a resounding “yes.”‘

  • Connecticut

    CENTER CHURCH-ON-THE-GREEN

    From Prevention: “Underneath the well-known Center Church-on-the-Green in New Haven is a little-known secret, a crypt that houses the remains of the early settlers of New Haven Colony.”

  • Rhode Island

    PROVIDENCE ATHENAEUM

    From Prevention: “Book lovers will love visiting the Providence Athenaeum, which is one of the longest-standing member-run libraries in America and was once a favorite of Edgar Allen Poe”

  • New York

    THE SPOOKY SUBWAY STATION

    From Prevention: “A subway station may not be the most interesting of places to visit in a city filled with basically everything, but this is no ordinary station: It’s an abandoned one. The NY Transit Museum offers tours for members of this surprisingly beautiful station.”

  • New Jersey

    THE CAPE MAY FERRY

    From Prevention: “The most underrated destination is something that transports you between Cape May, New Jersey, and Lewes, Delaware: The Cape May Ferry. Here, you can enjoy a relaxing trip in between the beach towns that’s a fun destination in and of itself.”

  • Florida

    BOK TOWER GARDENS

    From Prevention: “There’s no end to the entertainment options in Central Florida, but if you’d like a break from theme parks, head over to the Bok Tower Gardens. The tranquil gardens are considered one of the greatest works of Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., and are open 365 days a year” 

  • Tennessee

    RUBY FALLS

    From Prevention: “You’ve seen plenty of waterfalls, but you probably haven’t seen one underground, underneath a city. Located beneath Chattanooga, the dramatically-lit Ruby Falls is definitely a must-see.”

  • MASSACHUSETTS

    MAPPARIUM

    From Prevention: “Get a whole new perspective of the world at the Mapparium, a three-story stained glass globe at the Mary Baker Eddy Library.”
