Oregon’s a beautiful state. For those who’ve only been to the coast, we recommend driving through Eastern Oregon. The unrivaled views are amazing. And along the way, you’ll find some interesting curiosities, like this phone booth. We did a double take when we saw this one.

It’s one thing to occasionally find the ever-disappearing payphone these days, but it’s a completely different story to encounter an actual phone booth! Complete with windows, vintage phone sign, and, presumably, a working phone (although it was out of order when we visited). This was too good not to feature on UWanderings. These relics from the past are almost gone; we’re happy that ODOT preserved this one.

The crazy things we find on the road. Seriously.

This gem from the past is located at Boardman Rest Area in North Central Oregon, off of I-84. See map above for details. Happy travels!

In-N-Out: Not Your Typical Burger Joint

IT’S. SO. GOOOOOOD!!!!!!

Locations: California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Texas, Oregon

For our American readers, half of you probably already know about the wonderful In-N-Out Burger restaurants, so you can stop reading now if you want. We won’t be offended, though please continue to check out the rest of UndiscoveredWanderings.com 🙂

For the rest of you, this is a (UW) public service announcement. A time-tested burger restaurant came into UW’s radar not too long ago. And yeah, maybe In-N-Out has been around for decades. Maybe everyone on the West Coast has known about its deliciousness and delightful service all these years. Maybe the well-traveled creatives behind UW were completely out of the loop on this one…

But we’re an East Coast company, after all. It’s not our fault! However, just because we caught up to this amazing restaurant a little late doesn’t mean we can’t still spread the good word.

For the foodies: It’s the best fast food as far as UW is concerned: best burger, best fries, best buildings, best service.

For the nostalgic: It’s got that classic retro look to it–even the logo looks retro-modern. We’ve been to a couple different In-N-Outs, and as far as we can tell, they’re all laid out the same way, so you’ll always feel right at home no matter which one you go to.

To all who have not experienced the joys of In-N-Out: Go now! It’s worth every penny.

Here’s where they’re located

During our last visit, they gave us free paper hats, but you can get your own merchandise and learn more at In-N-Out’s official website.
