But with bars far and wide claiming to provide the best St. Patrick’s Day festivities, it can be tough to hone in the best of the best.

Professorville in Palo Alto, California is quite literally the neighborhood that professors built. In the late 19th century, the land in what’s now Professorville was divided exclusively for Stanford professors to build and own homes near the university—Stanford prohibited anything but rentals on its property. Now a registered historic district, the neighborhood is bound by Addison, Kingsley, and Lincoln Ave. with the cross streets of Bryant, Waverly, and Ramona.

Professorville has been home to many prominent intellectuals, inventors, and innovators. For example, Nobel Prize winner and co-inventor of the transistor radio, William Shockley, onced lived at 959 Waverley. And a few blocks over, on Addison Avenue, sits the garage where

On the cusp of spring each year, Mardi Gras celebrations take place around the world, with the most famous festivities happening in Brazil, Venice, and, of course, New Orleans. The age-old tradition, dating back thousands of years, was established as a pagan celebration of fertility and the coming of spring.

Mardi is the French word for Tuesday and gras means fat, hence the name Fat Tuesday, which takes place the day before Ash Wednesday. Fat Tuesday was established as a sort of indulgent day where those who practice Lent binge on all kinds of delicious, fatty foods before the 40-day Lent fast to come. The tradition of indulgence has remained strong, with today’s Mardi Gras celebrations being packed with good food,

No matter the occasion, the deliciousness of a hot, cheesy slice of pizza is tough to beat. But as any pizza enthusiast knows, not all pies are created equal. For a killer slice, you need exactly the right cheese-to-sauce ratio, fresh and abundant toppings, and the perfect thickness of fluffy dough. And while most pizza joints claim to have nailed all of these factors, only a few have the goods to back it up.

In honor of National Pizza Day on Saturday, here are our picks for the best pizza joints from Miami to the Bay Area.

Aptly named, the North Beach neighborhood in San Francisco actually used to be a beach after being filled in with a landfill around the late 19th century. The newly-established shoreline brought abundant fishing wharves and docks to the area. These docks provided access for the swarms of people headed to California for the 1849 Gold Rush, resulting in the southern half of the neighborhood becoming home to the infamous Barbary Coast.

In 1906, a massive earthquake struck the coast of Northern California, bringing devastating fires to the region that lasted for days. Reconstruction efforts began almost immediately, and not long after the storm, an influx of Italian immigrants moved to the neighborhood. These immigrants had, and

Rated as the Most Fun Small Town by Rand McNally, USA Today, and The Travel Channel, Delray Beach is a town rich in history, architecture, and fun things to do. The first settlers arrived in what’s now known as Delray Beach in the late 1800s. Hearing that the land boasted rich soil and abundant water, many settlers moved with the intention to farm.

These days, the town, which is aptly nicknamed “Village by the Sea,” boasts chic, locally-owned boutiques, tasty restaurants, and a casual, welcoming culture. And all of this is set against the sounds and sights of the Atlantic Ocean, which the town is nestled up next to.

One of the elements that sets Delray Beach apart from other towns is the lack of high-rise luxury condos
