15 of America’s Most Outrageous Foods

CityPASS recently searched out a variety of great restaurants dishing up some of America’s most amazing & outrageous foods. Do you think you could take down the Double Coronary Bypass Burger, stacked high with three servings of bacon and ground beef with two grilled cheese sandwiches for buns? Take a break from exploring some of Atlanta’s attractions and visit the Vortex Bar & Grill in Atlanta, GA to find out!

If you’re in Washington, DC and looking for the ultimate foodie challenge, stop over to the Nationals Park and take a stab at the 8-pound “Strasburger”. Make sure to bring a few friends as this is meant to feed eight people, not to mention the basket of fries and pitcher of soda that accompany the burger! If you don’t have 8 friends to spare, perhaps after visiting Tampa Bay, you can swing over to Orlando to try out the “Dagwood Sandwich” or maybe the 16-ingredient Bloody Mary in Fond Du Lac, WI is more your speed!

A trip to Philadelphia could be topped off by stopping at the Varga Bar for the Jumbo Lump Crab Cheese Fries or at PYT Burger for the “Sarancha Burger”, dripping with a combo of Sriracha, Ranch and Salsa. The graphic below outlines some of the other amazing concoctions and outrageous foods throughout the US. Share your story of a visit to these cities and restaurants in the comments below - we'd love to hear it!

What's New at the Space Needle

Written by Stacy Booth, Where Seattle editor.

The Space Needle Observation Deck is more than just a great view. This summer, they've been rolling out a bunch of new features, implementing some of the latest technology to add to the experience.

Space Needle Mobile App

You can download their mobile app for free (iOS, Windows Phone and Android), and with it see the panoramic view you'll get from the Observation Deck. Plus, get more information about some of the landmarks you'll see, like the Museum of History and Industry, the Gates Foundation, the Ballard Locks, the Olympic Sculpture Park and Pike Place Market. With the compass, you'll also be able to see how far away you are from some of Seattle's most famous landmarks, what direction you need to travel to get there, and view the Space Needle wherever you want with the use of Space Spots. These spots are found on the floor of the Observation Deck, or you can download your own Space Spots to use wherever you'd like. The spots on the Observation Deck include the same four you get in the at-home download (the regular Needle, the Needle and fireworks, the Needle in the clouds, and the cartoon Needle), plus two more - one lets you peek into the restaurant, SkyCity, while the other gives you a view of the ground, 520 feet down.

SkyPad

This massive touchscreen (it's 20 feet long and 8 feet tall) is filled with both historic and instant images of the Space Needle. Scroll around and you'll find everything from historic photos of the Space Needle's construction for the 1963 World's Fair, to Mudhoney's concert on the top of the Needle in 2013 to celebrate Sub Pop's 25th anniversary. One end of the SkyPad also displays fun facts about who has been to the Needle (did you know four astronauts have visited?), and you can add your name and hometown to the collection, and then view a graphic of where people are coming from.

Adventure Aquarium Celebrates Shark Week

What's older than sharks? Almost nothing. Sharks have been swimming in the ocean for more than 400 million years. They predate practically everything that has a spine, including humans and dinosaurs. Here's another fun shark fact: Adventure Aquarium is the only aquarium in the country with a hammerhead shark. In honor of Shark Week 2014, our friends at Adventure Aquarium created this awesome shark graphic below. Don't forget that Adventure Aquarium is one of the attractions in Philadelphia CityPASS and the only one across the river in Camden, NJ.

Movies Come to Life at Museum of Science's New 4-D Theater

Swimming with bottlenose dolphins in search of food is probably something most people will never experience, but a visit to the Museum of Science, Boston may get you closer to knowing what it would feel like. The Museum’s new 4-D Theater, which opened a week ago, will transform the way museum visitors experience film. 4-D combines the high definition features of a 3-D film with physical special effects, making viewers feel as though they are part of the movie. read more »
