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
Manhattan can, famously, feel like endless rows of apartment blocks and office towers for most of its length. At least above 14th Street, a regular grid of streets and avenues, bisected only by Broadway, has transformed the city into a dream for...
600 E Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60611, USA
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
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
