Our favorite thing to do when we visit any beach, anywhere in the world, is to go seashell hunting. We love bringing them home from the beach, filling up a special bottle exclusively for each destination and placing them on display to remind us how much fun we had sifting through the sand for the biggest, most colorful and...

Going to church in the King's Chapel is like flying first class in a private suite on a fancy airplane. This is the way to do church. Rather than sitting in long rowed pews, you have a designated pew; and not just a pew but a square cushioned cubicle. We can just imagine how much more pleasant church would...

When we see the name Wyndham slapped on a hotel, we are slightly weary of what will be waiting for us on the other end. Ages ago, we attended a Wyndham timeshare presentation, sucked in by the promise of a free stay. Nothing in life is free, and we paid a dear price for that presentation. The sales person...

Touted on the interwebz as some of the best seafood Galveston has to offer, Miller’s Seawall Grill was our first choice for dinner the night we arrived in Galveston, Texas. In reality, that had nothing to do with why we chose to eat here. It was just the closest restaurant to our hotel and within walking distance. We were...

We actually had our heart set on some Elephant Ears at the pier to be enjoyed while riding the Ferris Wheel at the end of the dock of Pleasure Pier, but unbeknownst to us, said Pleasure Pier is closed Monday thru Thursday! After drying a bucket of tears and wringing out our soaking clothes from the injustice of it...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...

At the time of completion in 1809, the Park Street Church was the tallest structure in Boston. The steeple itself stood 217 feet tall. Until the year 1867 no matter where you stood in the city, or if you arrived from the water, you would be able to see the steeple of the church. Today, the steeple is a...

At the top of the hill at Boston Common you can’t miss the New Massachusetts State House with her 23K gold gilded round dome roof. In 1795 Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and William Scollay watched as 15 white horses, one for each state in the Union, pulled the cornerstone up the hill containing a time capsule. It was first...

The first stop on the Freedom Trail is Boston Common. This 50 acre park in the center of the city has a playground, visitors center, restaurants and food trucks, frog pond and is adjacent to Boston Public Garden home of the famous swan boats and where Mr. and Mrs. Mallard make their new home with 8 baby ducklings. It...

Stretching throughout the city of Boston and across the Charles River Bridge is a conspicuous brick path winding through the center of the sidewalk. This is the Freedom Trail. It doesn’t require a map, or a how to guide; it’s easy to follow and impossible to miss. It charts the course of the early settlers of Boston and the...
