Surprised by the New England feel of Stony Brook, we lingered over museums and parks, soaking in history on our overnight visit to Long Island’s North Shore.
As we explore, we’re always finding surprises in the way of homespun restaurants and unique culinary experiences. We share our favorites here.
It’s not every day that a car guy finds a car-themed restaurant that hits the spot, both for great food and great memories. Discovering Ford’s Garage in Estero tuned us up to tackle a long travel day.

It’s just another day in Paradise for us, except we actually are in Paradise, Michigan, an excellent base camp for visiting Taquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point.
A morning adventure in which we avoid Battlefrog and find Spacefrog instead after a bear-scented walk through a scrub forest on the Florida Trail.
A surprise stop along US 301 in Bamberg, South Carolina leads us to a heaping helping of fine Southern cooking at Rusty and Paula’s.
