Haunted Revolutionary Philadelphia

I was inspired by In Your State’s articles about haunted sites in Pittsburgh.  I found some famous Revolutionary sites which are open as museums for your own haunted tour.  Most of these sites are in the same area with the exception of Fort Mifflin and are easily walkable.  If you feel less inclined to goContinue reading “Haunted Revolutionary Philadelphia”

Frightfully Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is an interesting city.  Camille is from Greene County, which is south from there and I appreciate her candor when it comes to Pittsburgh.  She truly does love some parts of the city and one of them being football. I tripped across this article about Pittsburgh and I thought I would share scary spotsContinue reading “Frightfully Pittsburgh”

Ghostly Getaways

This time of year brings out haunted houses, ghost tours, and the search for what goes bump in the night.  One of my daughter’s life list items (I am not a fan of the phrase bucket list) is to spend Halloween in Salem, Massachusetts, which she will be doing this year.  I like trips toContinue reading “Ghostly Getaways”

The Manhattan Project: K25

I was in Knoxville, Tennessee at the beginning of October picking up my BFF Bob for our roadtrip to Orlando.  We were going for coffee when I saw the National Park Service sign for the Manhattan Project.  Bob was not aware of the park, so I decided to look into it and there is aContinue reading “The Manhattan Project: K25”

Update: Camp Michaux (abandoned WWII POW camps)

I decided to take some detours on my way to Knoxville, Tennessee. My BFF, Bob, lives there and we are heading down to the Orlando area for a bit of theme park time. I decided to stop at Camp Michaux on the way and I must say I’m glad I did. The GPS headed meContinue reading “Update: Camp Michaux (abandoned WWII POW camps)”

October is Dark Tourism month and the Field of Screams experience

I am kicking off October with a series of October related travel.  There is a whole industry related to dark tourism which caught my attention with the Netflix series Dark Tourist.  Dark Tourism is related to death and tragedy but has been expanded to include the historical value to certain sites.  This is not everyone’sContinue reading “October is Dark Tourism month and the Field of Screams experience”

City Tavern Philadelphia and City Tavern Cookbook Review

I loved this place.  Past tense.  This wonderful establishment closed last November due to the pandemic.  Yet, another casualty and I am sorry to see it gone. City Tavern sits near Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the Museum of the American Revolution.  Its location was in the center of the Nation’s first capital and,Continue reading “City Tavern Philadelphia and City Tavern Cookbook Review”

Renaissance Faires

I have been attending Renaissance Faires for almost 30 years.  We discovered our first one while living in the suburbs of Chicago.  The Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, Wisconsin still holds the top spot for me.  It is an amazing site with artisans, food and flare.  My favorite entertainer is MooNiE ( who performs asContinue reading “Renaissance Faires”

The Flavors of Ireland

The Irish landscape is rich and lush, wild and wonderful.  The green pastures and climate mack for excellent lamb, sheep and beef.  I like to experience the local foods and had done some research before we left.  There were very few surprises as far as white I was to expect.  Barmbrack was the one foodContinue reading “The Flavors of Ireland”

Irish Gastronomic Tour

I must admit that I ate seafood until I grew gills.  They are fading now but my memories of Ireland are not.  It is a lush with sheep and cow pastures as far as the eye can see.  There were roadside stands with carrots the size and length of my forearm along with an abundanceContinue reading “Irish Gastronomic Tour”
