Central New York does not get a lot of media attention and too many travelers forget about the rest of New York State, outside of New York City. The George Eastman House International Museum of Film and Photography is a gem in a city and region of...
South Portland, ME, USA
After having just visited the Portland Head Lighthouse, I was on a mission to find a good lobster roll. I think I must have sifted through pages of reviews on yelp, but I finally settled on a small truck in the Fort Williams Park. What can I say,...
15 Peabody Dr, Northeast Harbor, ME 04662, USA
The Asticou Inn and its adjacent azalea garden are exceptional spots to stop on Mount Desert Island. The inn itself is one of the nicest lodging options on the island just outside of the prestigious village of Northeast Harbor, close to everything...
Mt Katahdin, Northeast Piscataquis, ME 04462, USA
There is little to say about Katahdin. It is far from easy to get to the top (about a 5 mile hike each way with an elevation change in excess of 4,000 feet), but the views are stunning. It's the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail for a...

Vermont is unparalleled in its awesome splendor. The pure simplicity and beauty of the place is astounding. It's a bit like going back in time - a time when people were simpler and with purer intentions and needs. Everyone here seems to be a...
233 Union Ave, Scotch Plains, NJ 07076, USA
Fall foliage in New England is nothing short of spectacular. The color change begins usually in early October, and by middle of the month the landscape is filled with vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow. Whether it be Hwy 87 along the Hudson...
Ripton, VT 05766, USA
On rides in New England, there are always country stores, and most of these stores boast some form of local rootbeer. Unfortunately, in many cases, these aren't actually home made but are usually brewed in some central plant then sold to different...
