35 Grove St, Wellesley, MA 02482, USA
$$$$
I'm kind of a fan of wonderful ice cream. But my tastes for ice cream don't really land in one direction or the other. I mean, I like a nice un-traditional ice cream when the time is right, but a simple soft-serve can also make my tastebuds dance...
Save Place
513 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116, USA
$$$$
When you find a great place for ice cream, you just know. After a day wandering around Tremont St. in Boston, we managed to find this little bucket of joy upon a recommendation from one of the local shop-owners. Picco has an absolutely wonderful...

$$$$
When you find a place that you love, you tend to make an extra effort to return to that location every single time you're in town. Such is the case with Cozy Dog Drive In, in Springfield, Illinois. Every single time I am around, I cruise on up to...
Save Place
New York, NY, USA
Just a block and a half from Loews Regency sits New York's landscaped wonder and one of the greatest urban parks in the world, Central Park. Stretching between 59th and 110th Streets and Fifth and Eighth Avenues, the park covers a total of 843...

The Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina is beautiful. Still a working port, the shipyard is home to many a gorgeous boat. I have to say that I am also partial to KO Catering and Pies—a little slice of home in Boston, serving Aussie goodies like...
Save Place
600 E Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60611, USA
Most visitors to Chicago see it from only one perspective: from the city looking out over the water. But what would it look like if your vantage point was from out over the water looking down at the city? Just a little bit north of Chicago there...

5 John St, Bristol, RI 02809, USA
$$$$
This burger deserved a mouth much bigger than mine. Honestly; upon reflection, I don't even know how I managed to eat it. But it's tantalising deliciousness just drew me in...so I had to say yes. With a combination of perfectly juicy burger patty,...
Save Place
Bristol, RI 02809, USA
Bristol, Rhode Island. is known for being a very patriotic town. Their Fourth of July celebration is heralded as being "the oldest continuous celebration of its kind in the United States". Even the streets get in on the action. Red, white and blue...
Save Place
Boston Harbor, Boston, MA, USA
When booking my ferry tickets for Salem, I didn't realize the view I would see when leaving Boston. In the summer months, ferries to and from Boston to Salem run a few times a day. The views are spectacular when leaving the city and even more so...
Save Place
210 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
$$$$
For much of its history, the western edges of Manhattan neighborhoods like the West Village and Chelsea consisted of small manufacturing buildings and warehouses that served the piers on the Hudson River. Over time, those factories were replaced...

$$$$
One night this past summer, we ventured to the wonderful restaurant "The Lobster Pool" with a friend visiting from Australia. We arrived just before the sun was due to set, and ate our steaming lobsters, buttery corn-on-the-cob, and sharp...

1000 New York 23, Craryville, NY 12521, USA
$$$$
It's perfectly normal to have an affinity towards things from our pasts. But, what if it's a past we never got to experience? Maybe that makes us love it more? I assume that is the case with my love for diners. And this place in particular....
Save Place
9 Glendale Rd, Stockbridge, MA 01262, USA
The Norman Rockwell Museum is a must. The collection of art, culture and personal memories provides a full explanation of exactly who the fabulous Mr. Rockwell was. We spent a day at the museum, captivated by the art collections, the grounds, and...
Save Place
208 SW 2nd St, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301, USA
$$$$
There's a whole new level of burger. It sits comfortably between two buns, a layer of warm American cheese, fat slices of fresh red onion and tomato, a bunch of Romaine, and a pile of two-and-a-half inch pickles. It's pretty confident, all...
Save Place
3599 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308, USA
$$$$
Look for the thatched palm, A-frame roof along Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale and you’ll know you’ve found this little piece of the Pacific. Mai-Kai is a kitsch temple to all things Polynesian, and the restaurant opened in Fort...
Save Place
1140 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, USA
$$$$
The hotels housing this popular Fort Lauderdale mermaid attraction have come and gone, but The Wreck Bar has remained. We guess that means sirens have staying power. Built to resemble a sunken Spanish galleon, this kitsch bar inside the B Ocean...
