ByLucas Peterson June 26, 2018 The word “discover” is always a misnomer when used by travelers: when a place is new to you, that doesn’t mean it’s new to everyone else. This was reinforced recently in the midst of my excitement exploring a dynamic midsize city close to where I live in Los Angeles, one with roughly the population of Miami or Kansas City.
