The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works

The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works   Traveling to me means discovering the gems of nature and history around the world. You know, like looking up to the whimsical spires of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or admiring the iron cherub lamps in Paris next to the River Seine. The visions can take my breath away and the stay locked in my memory forever. This is a story about the Moravian Tile Works near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I realize that a hundred-year-old factory is not one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but the Moravian Tile...

Charming, Italian, Culinary, Boston

Another Great Meal in Boston Delicious Italian Pastries in Boston If anyone from outside the city knows about Boston’s Little Italy, they hear about Mike’s Pastries. A mecca of sorts for delectable desserts, people will battle it out through rain, snow and sleet to bring home one of the signature white boxes tied with blue twine. Now I adore Mike’s just as much as the next Italian pastry lover, but a memorable time can be had in this borough of Boston sans cannoli, which will also save the headache of waiting in line for an hour or more. I...

Going on a Bike Ride to York

Self-Guided Bike Tour to York It’s a Long Bike Ride to Yorktown While biking along the NCR Trail in Maryland, I stopped to chat with a man who told me about a hotel in York, Pennsylvania, 35 miles away, that caters to bicyclists. “Ride up, stay overnight, and ride back again,” he told me.

I started my trip at Monkton, Maryland The North Central Railroad Trail, (NCR), is a rails-to-trails pedestrian, horse, and bike-friendly path which...

Discovering Provincetown’s Oceanside Food Court

In the very center of Provincetown is a food court.  One might expect food courts to only exist in malls, and while Provincetown is decidedly mall-like in many respects, this food court transcends the expectations of the common mall goer.  Top shelf sea food is sold alongside hand-churned ice cream.  Meals are enjoyed on a patio overlooking the ocean.   Mid-way down the hall of vittles resides BATATA, beckoning the hungry with a picture of a waving french fry. Specializing in elaborate Poutines, cheese and gravy lathered french-fries,...

Cape Cod Cuisine at The Barnstable Inn

Cape Cod’s scenic 6A is always worth a day trip.  Spend it driving from Boston, perusing antique shops, arriving in Wellfleet at nightfall just in time for a drive-in movie. A little way down the road from the well-hidden but singular antique stove store you may be tempted to drive by The Barnstable Inn.  I suggest you stop and enjoy the food.   What I must trumpet beyond all other delicacies are the crab cakes.  Enjoy the rich, varied, musky flavors of what could easily be described as the creme brulee of savory.  These exquisite...
