The men’s mag has a tersely written guide to some of America’s most popular tourist spots, and how to improve the time that you’ll inevitably spend visiting them—shoulder-to-shoulder with everybody else. Here’s a sample for Manhattan: “Joe’s Pizza on Carmine, not Ben’s on Spring. // House-tun, not Hyoo-stun. // Not SoHo. Period.”

Thanks for the tip, Eli.

I see they suggest staying in Cody, Wyoming when visiting Yellowstone. I couldn’t agree more, it’s absolutely one of my favorite small towns in America. (Of the ones I’ve visited, of course. Lots more to see.)
