David's in Kennebunkport, Maine

Fond memories come to mind when I think of the small seacoast town of Kennebunkport, Maine. Back in my college days, I spent a summer there working at the Colony Hotel and jogging by George Bush’s house down the road. It has been a long time since then but my wife and I go back frequently for the shopping, ocean, and of course the food.

Now that Memorial Day has past the summer driving season is in full swing and what could be better than a trip to the great state of Maine. But where should you go with so many beautiful and fun choices? We headed to one of our favorite haunts for the first time this year in Ogunquit, Maine to check out MC Perkins Cove.

A piece of cupcake heaven at Li's Bake Shop in Mystic, Connecticut

When you think of Mystic, Connecticut the movie Mystic Pizza probably comes to mind featuring Julia Roberts. We are not saying that you shouldn’t check out the actual Mystic Pizza restaurant but wanted to enlighten you to another tasty shop in this New England town. Just before you cross over the drawbridge leading to the downtown area is a small side street where we discovered a piece of cupcake heaven, Li's Bake Shop.

Seaglass Restaurant, Salisbury, Massachusetts

For my in-laws recent wedding anniversary my wife was trying to think of a restaurant that was not too far of a drive but something a little bit different for a special celebration. Since they love the ocean she remembered our enjoyable visit to the Seaglass Restaurant a few years ago. Remembering the beautiful views and delicious food this seemed like the ideal location.

Raw Bar, Mashpee, Massachusetts (Cape Cod)

My wife loves a good lobster roll and we have been known to travel far and wide in our search to find “the best” one. When she heard about how great they are at the Raw Bar in Mashpee we were on our way.

This was one of our best road trips in a long time. It had it all the necessary elements, getting lost, asking for help and having no idea if we were going in the right direction. In the end it was all worth it.

Mansions and Munchies; Christmas in Newport, Rhode Island

Image
Winter tends to be a tough time of year to plan a road trip because of the cold weather and worries about possible difficult driving conditions. However, on those days that are nice we always find time to get out of town. Newport, Rhode Island is generally thought of as a summer destination but you may want to take a trip to help get you in the holiday mood. With the festive season upon us, we thought it would be the perfect place to enjoy seeing some Christmas decorations.Three of the historic Newport mansions (The Breakers, Marble House, and The Elms) are open and dressed in their holiday finest from November 19th to January 2nd. 

Boat House offers beautiful sunset views

We found a restaurant (new to us) on the water in Tiverton, Rhode Island for our next road trip. The Boat House faces the water to the west instead of the east like so many other establishments on the Atlantic coast. For this reason they can offer some of the most beautiful sunset views you will see in New England. Because of all the large windows, every seat offers the same breathtaking views.
