"Follow your nose," suggests Malena Lopez-Maggi of San Rafael, Calif. "Walk down a street until you're seduced by the most alluring smell."

"Phone the chamber of commerce—a great yet often forgotten resource," says Karla Morton of Payson, Utah.

"Check out the Where to Dine section of AAA TourBooks," advises Karen Fusto of Reno.
