Last week, we kicked off a new Westphoria column: our weekly round-up of the Sunset travel team’s 5 favorite discoveries of the week.

Here are the stories that caught my eye—and made me want to hit the roadthis week.

Explore
Playing Indiana Jones in the canyons of Utah‘s Cedar Mesa sounds like the perfect summer escape—especially for families.

Laugh
San Francisco Magazine has a hilarious rundown of the City by the Bay’s nicknames—and what your preferred moniker says about you.

Visit
The new Rocky Mountain Land Library—and the inspiring story behind its creation—will make you want to load up a bag full of books and head to Colorado.

Dance, Shop, & Eat
An album release party. A flea market. And burgers and chili dogs?! Sign me up! L.A.-band Best Coast is celebrating the release of its new LP, California Nights (out on Monday), with a flea market this weekend at The Oinkster in Hollywood.

Hike
The best wildflower treks in the Northwest sound heavenly.

Did you stumble across some great vaca inspiration this week? I’d love to hear about it, in the comments section below.

Happy travels!
