Whitechapel, San Francisco
Curved ceilings and steampunk decor give Whitechapel the feel of a London Underground station—though the real highlight is its expansive menu of gin-based libations. Order a gin flight (opt for a classic such as the Tom Collins, or try the Penny Dreadful) and toast to the Queen.
Utah Shakespeare Festival, Cedar City, Utah
But soft, what plays from yonder theater show? It is the Utah Shakespeare Festival, one of the West’s largest summer theater festivals, attracting more than 100,000 visitors every year. The Tony and Emmy Award–winning event hosts nine productions (including four from Shakespeare) simultaneously from June to October. Dart off to nearby Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks between shows under the stars at the recently built Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre, a replica of the Bard's Globe Theatre in London.
Pelican Inn, Muir Beach, California
You’d be forgiven for thinking you took a wrong turn and wound up on southern England's Jurassic Coast when you visit the Pelican Inn. The authentic Tudor-style lodge has seven cozy bedrooms and a candlelit pub, perfect for a romantic San Francisco getaway—or a rousing round of English ale after a day at the beach.
