Bailey's Bubble, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, you're going to love their flurry's

I am going to suggest something a little different on this road trip, a drive to Wolfeboro, New Hampshire for a flurry at Bailey's Bubble. For those of you who have never heard of a flurry, it is soft serve ice cream combined with your favorite candy or whatever else you might like, this is all mixed together to form an thick icy treat.

The Circus Cafe, Saratoga Springs, New York

Maybe it's just me but I think you're going to love our next road trip, it is time for you to take a drive to the circus, let me explain. A few years back after a trip to the Finger Lakes we stopped in Saratoga Springs on the way back to New Hampshire. While browsing in the shops along main street, we were getting hungry. We asked one of the local merchants for a recommendation for lunch and she suggested the Circus Cafe. The name threw me off and I was hesitant at first. After much deliberation due to the fact that there are so many restaurants lining the streets of Saratoga Springs we decided to give the Circus Cafe a try.

The search for Boxty, Fado Irish Pub, Austin, Texas

Back in 2006 we were on vacation in San Diego. One evening looking for a place for dinner, we noticed The Field Irish Pub and decided to give it a try. After a few adult beverages, we tried Boxty for the first time and loved it. For those that are unfamiliar, Boxty is an Irish dish. The best way to describe Boxty is to think of a thin potato crepe which is rolled and stuffed with with one of your favorite meats and covered in a creamy sauce. Ever since that first time my wife and I have been on a Boxty frenzy. Whenever we visit a new place, we're always on the the lookout for Irish Pubs that might have Boxty. Alas, this is not as easy as it might seem. We have looked throughout New Hampshire and New England and up to this point could not find any good Boxty, We even tried Boxty at Gallagher's Boxty House in Dublin, Ireland and sadly it was not that great.

The Daily Scoop, Bristol, Rhode Island. How far would you drive for super premium ice cream?

One of our favorite coastal towns to visit in New England is Bristol, Rhode Island. Unlike many other coastal towns, Bristol has yet to be overdeveloped. When you are near the water it is quiet and relaxing, hopefully, this serene place will remain unspoiled for all to enjoy for many years to come. A fun fact about Bristol - it is the home of the oldest July 4th parade in the country.
