Best of Falmouth, Cape Cod

Falmouth is Upper Cape Cod's largest town, with the largest coastline and the most activities to keep visitors engaged. During the day, vacationers can laze around on one of the sandy beaches or pedal along Vineyard Sound on the Shining Sea Bikeway. When evening...

Savannah History Museum

There was blood on the ground. Lots of it, and most of it belonged to the Americans. It was an ambitious plan to win the city from the British who had so easily taken it a year earlier. It may have even worked, had so much not gone wrong. Miscommunication, or even no...

Savannah’s Waving Girl

Unlike the cruise ships further south, nobody stands at the edge of the port to wave farewell to the massive cargo vessels leaving the Port of Savannah. In this case, its a reversal of fortune where those on board listen to beach music coming from the shore and watch...

Lexington and Concord: Patriot’s Day, Everyday

It may be a sad commentary but like most nations, ours begins with bloodshed. Minuteman National Historical Park is dedicated to the opening days of the American Revolution. It is here that the first shots were fired, and where both sides sustained their first casualties.

New England Aquarium – Shaping Perceptions About Our Blue Planet

My daughter has recently shown some interest and excitement around marine mammals and the ecosystem that comprises our oceans. So my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to take the family to the New England Aquarium to see some of the new exhibits since our...

Fenway Park Tour – America’s Most Beloved Ballpark

Grandstanding The tour begins as you plop down in the blue grandstand seats. These are the only wooden seats left in any of the major league parks, and arguably the most uncomfortable. History and tradition are so strong here in Boston that the management is willing...

Touring the USS Constitution

One thing about Boston is that nearly everything is historic. I recently went back into town to update some photos and decided to take a tour of the US Navy's oldest commissioned warship, The USS Constitution. Although I used to work right across the harbor from the...
