Autumn Fills the Air

Autumn Fills the Air

Yesterday, we decided to be tourists in our own backyard and join the crowds going to view the beautiful foliage of New Hampshire before it was too late.   We were blown away by the views!     After buying our tickets, we waited in line for only a little bit. There are two tram cars that take 80 people each in a ride that takes about 10 minutes each way to the 4,100-foot summit for views that can’t be beat….

Amazing Places: Benefit Street in Rhode Island

Amazing Places: Benefit Street in Rhode Island

Could you imagine living in this house? What a beautiful building! Officially called the “George Drowne House,” it was built in 1862. By that point, Benefit Street was already populated with colonial houses, but this house was definitely one of the stand outs for me! Located at 367 Benefit Street, there are 10 condos inside this house now which rises 2 1/2 stories above the ground. The rest of the street is pretty amazing as well. I was told that…

Fall River Historical Society

Fall River Historical Society

Just in time for Lizzie Borden’s birthday, we took a trip to Fall River to see some history related to the case. Trying to avoid the heat of the city, we drove down to Fall River in search of cooler breezes and spooky history at the Lizzie Borden House. Getting there was very easy, but upon arrival, there was no one to give the tour and the price totally turned us off. Not only that, some other people wrote in…

The Darby Field Inn

The Darby Field Inn

On a hill just off Route 16 in Albany, NH is The Darby Field Inn. Located near North Conway and several mountains, the Inn was a great stop for an early spring trip north. Our room was cozy with a bed, two nightstands, electric fireplace, a closet, and an adorable fold out desk. Unlike other hotels or Inns that we have been to, the water pressure in the shower was amazing and the bed was the most comfortable one we’ve…

In an effort to get in shape for our upcoming hike to the Grand Canyon (want to help us raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society? Donate here!), we have been trying to hike more.
