At IgoUgo, we defer to the experts—you—to select the best places for injecting local flavor into a trip. When you review a hometown hole-in-the-wall or a festival you stumbled upon halfway around the world, you shape the way our community of travelers experiences a place.

This year, Travelocity shares this spirit of give-and-take for the third time, turning to their trekkers to highlight the best hidden gems in the US: the Local Secrets, Big Finds. And for the first time, IgoUgo has partnered with Travelocity to bring you the list!

Like IgoUgo journals, these picks are informative, quirky, and written in travelers’ own colorful words. Who knew that there’s an authentic Hofbräuhaus in Newport, Kentucky, or a world-famous swimming pool in Coral Gables, Florida? And we’ve heard of the Purple People Eater, but we were delighted to learn of the less scary Purple People Bridge. Whether you gravitate toward the beautiful, the wacky, or the tasty, you’ll find a pick to inspire or enrich your next trip. All 50 states are represented, and some major cities have their own pages full of secrets.

We love this project because it’s what IgoUgo is all about: travelers’ backyard darlings and far-flung finds, revealed. So take a look, and if any of these local secrets are familiar to you, be sure to share your own reviews at IgoUgo—or introduce us to other big-time local secrets that we should know about. After all, you’re the experts.
