The best cupcake store in New England

On a recent holiday shopping trip to Boston we decided to head over to one of our favorite haunts, Georgetown Cupcakes. We've tasted many cupcakes over the years and we feel that they are the best in New England. In fact, we think they are so good that we put them at the top of our list of the best. We first sampled Georgetown Cupcakes at their original location when we were in DC a few years ago. They are just as good now as they were then.

Wright's Farm Restaurant. Harrisville, Rhode Island, Forget the turkey and go for chicken instead

Earlier this year, as we were driving through Rhode Island around dinner time, we were trying to think of a place to eat. All of a sudden, my wife piped up and asked if I wanted to go to Wright's Farm Restaurant near Smithfield? Since I had already driven by the exit, I did a sharp u turn as she described the meal.

Sullivan's, Castle Island, South Boston, Massachusetts

The story of how we found Sullivan's and their delicious hot dogs goes back a long time. It began at a dive bar in Boston. We had befriended a townie who loved to tell colorful stories. He also loved food and he told us about a place in Southie called Sullivan's that had really good hot dogs. Since my wife and I love a good grilled hot dog the search began.

Jordan Pond House Restaurant, Acadia National Park, Seal Harbor, Maine

When I was a kid (many years ago) my family visited Acadia National Park and the Jordan Pond House Restaurant. Although I have visited as an adult, It has been a long time and after a recent trip, I realized what I had missed. It's now time for you to experience the same... on the road to Maine.

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.

Paddy's Irish Pub and The West Street Hotel, Bar Harbor, Maine

Summer is not over yet and for our next trip we are sending you to Maine for a stay at the recently opened West Street Hotel and good eats at Paddy' Irish Pub & Restaurant. The locals in Bar Harbor may not be happy with the development on the water front but for the rest of us who want to visit Tom Walsh and the team at Ocean Properties have brought a new classy flavor to Bar Harbor.

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.
