Soarin’ Over California is the best ride at Disneyland. You take your seat in front of a giant screen, your whole body is strapped down, and within seconds you’re whisked off on a virtual parasail ride over California that includes getting sprayed in the face with something that smells like oranges. The ride doesn’t have crazy drops or upside down loops, but for five minutes you’re somewhere else. You’re skiing in Tahoe, surfing in Malibu, and dodging golf balls in Palm Springs.
Rappahannock Oyster Bar is not a virtual reality ride, but it is a restaurant that accomplishes something similar. Dinner at Rappahannock takes you out of LA – without actually leaving the city. You come here to hang beneath a giant tree on a patio in the center of the RowDTLA development, surrounded by cobblestone plazas covered in string lighting. Close one eye and squint and you can pretend you’re sitting on the Chesapeake Bay, pleased with how your new life as an oyster shucker is going.
