Breweries on Cape Cod: Finding the Perfect Beer

Whenever I travel, one of my favorite rituals is to find a restaurant or bar that serves the local brew on tap. If I can find a taproom where the beer is crafted on the premises - even better. Where I live on Cape Cod, there has been an explosion of craft breweries...

Newport, Rhode Island – Downtown Visitor’s Guide

Recently, I had the opportunity to take a quick day trip to Newport, Rhode Island. It had been a few years since I had last visited Newport, and with the ravages of COVID-19 on the travel and tourism industry in full effect, the streets and wharf areas had a rather pleasant reduction in congestion than what I remembered. That being said, all of downtown Newport was open for business and making the best of this strange summer.

Visitors Guide to Sandwich, Cape Cod

Just over the Sagamore Bridge on Cape Cod lies the town of Sandwich, known for its beaches along the shore of Cape Cod Bay, quaint town center that features a historic grist mill, and lazy drives along route 6A.

Getting Outside in Montpelier, Vermont

With outdoor recreation opportunities aplenty and easy access from Interstate 89, Vermont’s capital city is a great choice for a weekend away. Montpelier is the country’s smallest capital – and the only one without a McDonald’s – but it has big character. I’ve been using this central Vermont locale for my adventure jumping-off point for 11 years, and think this city has everything to offer the outdoor adventurer. Spend a few days and see for yourself!

North Conway, New Hampshire, is a favorite destination of New Englanders that want to escape city life for a few days and unwind. Its popularity is not unwarranted. I have been coming to North Conway since my teenage years. First as a skier, then a rock climber, hiker, and later on in life a father just trying to get away with my family on a few short outings. This has always been the place that I could count on to cleanse my harried soul and it never disappoints.

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. Visitors can tour historic homes and taverns that have been converted into museums, and stand on the ground where the Minutemen took their stand against the King of England.
