Summer in Rockport


The commuter train from Boston takes you away from the hustle and congestion of the city and well into the suburbs. If you catch the right train, you’ll scurry past the suburbs and find your own place of rest and relaxation at the end of the line in Rockport. The Newburyport/Rokport line’s last stop puts […]

An Amazing Pairing

©JWessel Photography 2016

Gracie’s is a place to create memories. Fine food and wine, attentive service, and a warming atmosphere make it the place to bring someone special for… a proposal? … an anniversary? But during the Star Chef Series dinners, the food is the reason for the evening, and that someone special you bring becomes a fellow […]

Boston, the Boston Way


Boston’s life is on its sidewalks. In suburbia we nestle in our individual cocoons of picket fences and manicured lawns, in the countryside we find the same comfort of hearth and home with our individual spaces that are more wide open, but life in Boston is defined by broad sidewalks leading between shops, restaurants, and […]

A Quiet time Quilting


White-knuckle adventure is fine for some people, but for many people a trip to the peace and quiet of the White Mountains and the Great North Woods is a call to a simpler life, one with the cozy comforts of time-honored, cozy bed and breakfast, the company of good friends, and a return to the […]

Just Right


In the 1960’s the yachting set, which included the power brokers and celebrities of the day, converged on the mouth of the Connecticut River. The river provides deep-water harborage as it emptied into the Long Island right at the end of Long Island, the trains traveled nearby, and the interstate highways made traveling to Saybrook […]

Rockport on a Blustery Day


We love traveling in the off season. After summer is over, after the throngs of tourists thin out and a chill wind whips up the waves that crash spectacularly into the rocky Cape Ann shores, it’s still not too late to enjoy Rockport. During the summer, you may look forward to a short boat ride […]

Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard is a popular destination for tourists, in large part because of the beautiful beaches and the weather — during the summer, the temperature is almost always below 90 degrees. Often called simply “the Vineyard”, it’s a place for relaxation, perhaps golfing, fishing, and enjoying the sun on the beach, often finding yourself in […]

Adventure and Relaxation


A quiet village, surrounded by New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest may seem like a nice place to escape this summer, but when you add mountain biking on 100 miles of trails, golf, canoeing, swimming, and tennis to a town square filled with shopping and dining, there’s no doubt that you’ve found a really great […]

A Dog-Friendly Weekend at the Spruce Moose Lodge


One of the joys of having a dog in the family is that you have a companion who thrills to the little things in life – a spoonful of peanut butter, a squirrel running across the fence, a chance to get an energetic tummy rub. When traveling to a place of outdoor fun, like North […]

Seven Reasons to Love CW Lanes


The managers of CW Lanes consider their venue to be a restaurant with bowling lanes, but the CW Lanes can’t be tagged simply as a restaurant or bowling alley. They’ve put a lot of things to do in one up-tempo, millennial-friendly entertainment center, with bowling, an excellent restaurant, bar, a large game room, laser tag, […]
