185 Middle St, Portland, ME 04101, USA
This is what a coffee shop should be. Well crafted drinks that are swift, but not rushed. Plenty of seating for locals to chat, read, and caffeinate for the day. Because they offer soups it can get crowded at the lunch hour!

520 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA

400 8th St NW, Washington, DC 20004, USA
The day I arrived in Washington, D.C., I had some time to go exploring. Given the overcast skies, this turned out to be a poor photography expedition. And so the day I left D.C., I got up extra early to catch the sunrise over the National Mall. It...

Top of the list for Charleston eats is The Hominy Grill. Hungry patrons can start off the 30+ minute wait for a table with a mimosa, Bloody Mary, or other signature drinks from the Bar/ToGo window in the front courtyard. I recommend also ordering...

Wynwood, Miami, FL, USA
One of the main reasons I love Miami is Wynwood District. The area is an ever-changing canvas of graffiti and social commentary. What was new yesterday may already have been re-purposed/-tagged/-painted today.
