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...

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...

2935 S 6th St, Springfield, IL 62703, USA
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...

New York, NY, USA
Life in NYC is never dull! It is vibrant, exciting and every day is an event, and I absolutely fell in love THE city from the first moment I step foot in it. Human interactions and emotions are in your face and displayed in the open for anyone who...

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...

The Ferris Wheel on Navy Pier.

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,...

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...

Boston Harbor, Boston, MA, USA
During the Boston Harborfest this summer, tall ships entered Boston Harbor from all over the world. They were decorated with flags, and had perfectly immaculate "swabbed decks". The best part of the festival, for me, was being able to speak--with...

210 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
I love living in New York for many reasons. The High Line Park is one of them. As some random 'free things in NYC list' put it, 'How did they manage to squeeze so much awesomeness in such a small space?' In New York city no less! The elevated park...

329 Granite St, Rockport, MA 01966, USA
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 NY-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....

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...

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...

3599 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308, USA
While the Mai-Kai restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale is an experience all in itself, with a dance show, interior décor like no other, and a gift shop sporting Polynesian paraphernalia—not to mention that the drink menu is pretty delish. I...

1140 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, USA
Ever see a mermaid? Me, neither. At least, not until I visited The Wreck Bar in Ft. Lauderdale last week. The magical mermaids return from their sea adventures every Friday, and always promise to put on quite the show. Just make sure you get there...
