Not that spending all day standing in a park getting your caricature drawn isn't a blast, but it’s easy to make rookie mistakes during your first time in a new town -- which is why Thrillist teamed up with a car for firsts, the all-new Chevy Sonic, to compile a guide to essential under-the-radar spots in Boston, LA, NYC, SF, and even a town you'll want to see for the first time all over again, Chicago.
Explore these urban guides to find everything from a street-wear mecca hiding behind a place where people buy sandwiches, to tempura-fried donuts inspired by extremely loud musicians whose talent had serious holes in it, to the only place where you can fly sans airplane. Each handpicked venue provides an experience as bold as the Sonic, an ultra-safe, 40 mpg highway1 ride with the most torque in its class -- all available in a sedan or hatchback. Leading you down the road to the future will be available Bluetooth audio streaming for select phones2, plus the ability to start your car before you hop in3 with the OnStar RemoteLink™ app4, and the myChevrolet app5, which is loaded with service reminders, and a glossary of dashboard indicators for those willing to confess that they don't know exactly what they are without a glossary. Interested in earning this glorious machine -- just by trying out cool stuff? Then head to LetsDoThis.com to play the game that gives you a shot at scoring the Sonic by sharing your first times6. Then figure out where you'll be heading with the urban-firsts HQs, which frankly look a lot more like you than that terrifyingly wide-smiled cartoon.
