7. Campus No. 805
After that, the building was purchased and turned into a campus full of craft breweries, pinball arcades, pool tables, ax throwing, and even a hidden speakeasy that the staff stays surprisingly tight-lipped on the whereabouts of. There’s just nothing quite like wandering through halls of lockers with a slight buzz and an intent to chuck axes at stuff. Worth checking out if you’re in the area.
6. Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
The train will take you from Durango, up to the sleepy mining camp of Silverton, Colorado. There, you can grab a beer and some food, or wander around the untouched historic town. We recommend checking out the cemetery, it is extremely unique and not at all lacking in the creepy department. Time this right and you can see the abundance of aspen trees in the area turn from green to a vibrant gold in the fall. Truly a sight to behold.
5. California Zephyr Train
From Chicago to Denver, passengers enjoy a meditatively endless supply of corn and soy farms. However, once the train passes through Denver, things begin to change. The train lumbers up the Rocky Mountains, over the Continental Divide, through the Book Cliffs of Utah, and into the California Central Valley. A trip on the Zephyr is not an experience you will soon forget.
4. Heceta Head Lighthouse
Today, the building that remains operates as a bed and breakfast. Surrounding the compound is scenery that is difficult to match regarding beauty. Mountainous forests run straight into the Pacific Ocean, with wildlife and untouched wilderness abound. If you’re looking for a secluded getaway for a reset in life, Heceta Head is the place to be.

2. Pacific Coast Highway 1
If you like the coast, you might also want to try fishing in Alaska. One good example is the halibut charters in Seward Alaska. The state is home to some of the best fishing charter options around, and home to some of the biggest fish, to. Halibut are a perfect example of this. In 2013, the world record Halibut was caught and weighed in at 515 pounds. The fish itself was 8.6 feet long. Can you imagine telling all of your friends back home about catching a fish even half that size?
