With road trip season in full swing we decided to head south to Connecticut over the holiday weekend for one of our favorite breakfast places of all time. Our story begins back in 2006 when my wife and I were on vacation in San Diego, California. As many of you know we are always looking for great places for breakfast so we feverishly search for the best local joints when we travel. During this quest I stumbled upon Hash House a Go Go as the favorite. We stopped by and the wait was something like 45 minutes. After passing the time chatting with the locals, we had what was one of the best breakfasts of our lives.

During the first two weeks of December in Kennebunkport, Maine people visit from all over for their Christmas Prelude Celebration. Earlier this year we heard locals talk about the event and decided that this was time to check it out. For you shopaholics all the stores in town are open as well as a number of craft fairs. But more than that it is a place you can go to really get into the spirit of the season. You will find warm friendly smiles everywhere you look and decorations throughout the town.

The coast of New England has many unique qualities - the salty smell in the air, the afternoon sea breeze, lobster traps, fishing boats, and of course quaint towns. We enjoy the ocean very much and have spent quite a bit of time in many towns throughout the area. One of the best and most relaxing of these can be found in the small town of Ogunquit, Maine at Breaking New Grounds.

There is nothing better than taking a road trip to Salem, Massachusetts this time of year to get you into the spirit of Halloween. It seems that whenever we visit it is always a dark dreary day which is fine since it suits the environment well. Ghosts, goblins, and of course, witches come to mind when we think of this small city. There are many attractions available for those of you that enjoy getting scared out of your wits. While we tend to enjoy the people watching more than most of the “haunted” themed events, it makes sense to also incorporate some good food into our road trip to the north shore of Massachusetts.

Nothing says fall like a trip to an apple orchard. Luckily living in New England affords us the opportunity to have an abundance of orchards and we are always on the hunt for something fun to do on a beautiful fall weekend. If you are like me and not the biggest fan of apple picking (much to my wife’s chagrin), you will be happy to check out a festival held at a local orchard in Hampton Falls, NH.

It's time for another road trip and this time we take you to Rhode Island. My wife and her family lived in the Providence area for a time and they frequented Chelo's quite a bit. Having flown out of Providence recently we decided to check out the location directly across from the airport. We normally visit the Providence restaurant.

Unlike a road trip this was more of a joy ride where we jumped in the car without any idea of where we were going or if there would be anything worthwhile to do or see when we got there. It could have been an oasis or a disaster. So one afternoon we decided to head south from Tampa towards the water thinking that there must be some nice beaches along the way.
