Review of Nine Must-Visit Places According to Locals

G Spot

Who knows the best must-visit places in a city? The locals. We have surfed the Internet and checked as many reviews as we can to select nine places. They are not about fleecing the tourists; they are about entertainment, mouthwatering food, and quality recreation in conceptual interiors. The locals know their motherland better than those tourist sites. Trust them.
Atticus HotelDowntown McMinnville, Oregon

Atticus is situated in the historic part of Oregon; you can even say it is in the heart of it, surrounded by the Willamette Valley, one of the greenest things in the USA. Each of its 36 rooms was created in collaboration with local craftsmen, artists, and designers, so the guests are literally immersed in local history. The vibe there is about the 1990s and quiet luxury style. The available recreational activities also correspond: horseback riding, flying above Oregon in a hot air balloon, visiting craft breweries, getting inside an olive mill, and walking across the wine country. Just get your partner and visit it to make a proposal, even if you are already married, because it is a perfect place from the movies.

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac Québec, Canada

It is like the founder of the hotel thought, "What if he created a Hogwarts-like castle with bright colors and modern interior rooms?" In all the canons of a royal castle, you will be met by a doorman, and a real butler will help you get used to it. They already have a special menu for those who follow a diet, and kids of yours or your neighbors will not disturb the relaxation as they provide nannies. The location of the hotel will close all your travel gestalts as there are 126 restaurants and 116 outside-the-hotel entertainments within half a kilometer. After checking out a virtual tour, you will immediately fall in love with the castle and want to spend money on a booking.
Best Western Premier Park Hotel & Spa
Lippspringe, Germany

It seems the mystery is solved: they took a sanatorium and upgraded it to a hotel. This may be the only explanation why this hotel relaxes its guests to the max and has such views. Namely: the remote location from the hustle and bustle of the big cities; the appearance of the mansion from which Mr. Grey comes out in the movies; free breakfast delivered to your bed; swimming pools with all the delights like jacuzzi, spa, hammam, massage; renting bicycles for a leisurely ride around the beauty of Germany. It's a salvation of the soul that has been working for the last few months. But our favorite thing about this hotel is the manicure and pedicure services. You don't have to run around before your flight, and you can get it done in a relaxed environment. The other hotels need to learn from them.

La Bola
Madrid, Spain

La Bola has had its menu since 1870, and it is literally screaming "traditions." The history of Spain may be found, whether in museums or in this restaurant. The owners raised four generations in Madrid, and they are still on top, according to locals. On the menu are unique filet and tripe, slow-roasted milk lamb, which will be served with glasses of skillful Spanish wine, and for dessert, apple fritters with ice cream and rice pudding. The food is cooked in clay pots in a real oven, which gives the meat a mild flavor. In recent years, the restaurant has won nine awards for quality, taste, and even hospitality.
Panadería Rosetta
Mexico City, Mexico

For the locals, it is the best bakery in Mexico. The main highlight is the cooking using only Mexican ingredients. Though the pastry is variable as never. Croquenbush, tarts, doughnuts, croissants, rolls, sweet breads, cakes, pies, muffins, and things we never remembered the names of. All in Panadería Rosetta. When you visit the bakery as a tourist, it is revealing as something more: come in winter and find out one menu; visit in summer and get pastry items that are different because the format is seasonal, changing from time to time. And yes, you can be a guest there even if you are on a no-sugar diet, as they serve pasta, soups, fish, and meat as well.

Rome, Italy

The restaurant is historical; it was established in 1957 and was named after a girl with the nickname Matricianella. The present owners say that they not just provide Roman cuisine but also share food with tasting memories: "it is like becoming children again for a while, rediscovering childhood's tastes and smells." The prices here are not exorbitant, and the restaurant does not position itself as a luxury restaurant, but the quality of it is evidenced by the demand. It is a lovely place for entrepreneurs, sports and public figures, and other Italian celebrities. They chose the restaurant because of great food, not because of paid collaboration, and it is an important sign in 2023.
