New England Seafood Feasting in Philadelphia

I have to confess something. On its own I find lobster to be overrated. Now, before you get all up in arms, remember that overrated does not mean bad. Lobster is delicious. It’s sweet, it’s light, and drowned in drawn butter, it’s a quintessential summer experience. It’s just that for the amount of money you

A 2015 Recap

Every year I make myself a list of weekend resolutions, and every year I set unrealistic goals that set me up for failure. Last year, I tried to be more realistic, but still set myself two separate posts of over 10 resolutions (some, which came with sub-resolutions). You could see them here and here. Every

Portland Maine, Day 1

You know what I haven’t done in a long time? Taken an impromptu roadtrip. Being the king of planning and all, I can’t even remember the last time I just packed a bag with no plans, reservations, and just hit the road, so I was pretty pumped this past 4th of July weekend, when my

Martha’s Vineyard Day 2: Chappaquiddick and the Time I Failed a Moped Safety Test

There’s still one day left of my summer 2015 Cape Cod/Martha’s Vineyard saga. When we left off, I was on a very strange taxi ride home from downtown Oaks Bluff, to our hotel, the Island Inn, and after three full days of Narragansett and super sun exposure, I wasn’t feeling great when I woke up

Ferry Rides, Sun Poisoning, Nude Beaches, and More Narragansett in Martha’s Vineyard

To read about the first days of my Cape Cod/Martha’s Vineyard trip, click here or here. Saturday morning we woke up nice and early, so that we’d be on time for the two hour ferry ride to Martha’s Vineyard. We opted for the 9am ferry, which, by the time we got situated, grabbed lunch, and

Summering on the Cape Part 2: Beaches, Brews, Walking Tacos and the Most Anticlimactic History Monument Ever

We’re picking up with day 2 of my Cape Cod adventure. To read about day one, click here. The nice thing about Cape Cod’s super early last call is that I was able to get a good nights sleep pretty much everyday, and didn’t wake up at all with a hangover, which is pretty monumental for

Summering on the Cape Part 1: Cat Boats, Lobster Dinners, and an Ode to Narragansett Lager

      Last summer, I ended up going to Cape Cod/Martha’s Vineyard for a long weekend. I actually wrote about the planned itinerary, but never ended up writing much about the trip, because as soon as I got home, I got real sick for a week (I wouldn’t be surprised if it was some

Clothing Optional: My First (Adult) Visit to a Nude Beach

  True story: do you know that up until this summer, when I started to properly learn the power of social media, the post responsible for driving readers to my blog was a throwaway post from 2012 about nude beaches. I don’t remember exactly why I wrote the post. I think it’s because I had

Summering on the Cape

One of my life goals is to be the type of person who’s financially stable enough to use the word summer as a verb. You know the type; the summer in the south of France, or they summer in Bermuda, or maybe they summer in the Hamptons-no matter the destination, it’s usually somewhere a bit exclusive, classy

Weekend Trip Idea: Montauk NY

I feel like it’s been a trend in all the travel blogs and magazines to feature summer-centric beach towns as fall destinations.  Since I’d like to be on trend, I’m going to follow suit. They’ve been pointing out that after Labor Day the crowds abruptly disappear but since the weather hasn’t made the full fall transition
