Brickyard Coffee and Tea Downtown San Diego

I used to walk pass a cute little brick building on Kettner Blvd and West G St. whenever I was going to Seaport Village from my sisters office building downtown San Diego. (It is actually located right at the Seaport Village trolley stop, making a perfect place to stop by as you wait for the trolley.) […]

Chinatown Boston Food: Gourmet Dumpling House

Gourmet Dumpling House We went back to Chinatown before leaving Boston, and decided that we were going to brave the long line outside of this restaurant.

The Freedom trail is 2.5 mile walking route that goes through downtown Boston, leading you to 16 historical sites sprinkled throughout Boston. We did not walk the full route, we started at Faneuil Hall (Quincy Market) and made our way through downtown Boston to the Boston Common.

Lobster Rolls and Clam Chowder in Boston

When I think of food in Boston, I immediately think of Lobster Rolls and Clam Chowder. During our short weekend trip to Boston I made a point to make sure we a chance (or two) to have some. Before our trip, I looked up where some of the best places to go and tried to include them into my itinerary. We ended up going to Legal Sea Foods, Boston Chowda, and Boston & Main Fish Company.
