Lyman Estate and Historic New England

I have been very behind in posting and debated even posting this story because it was so long ago. But these next few travel posts are places that I want to document, mostly spots that I've visited since moving back to Massachusetts a year ago (!). One day this past winter, when I was still… Continue reading Lyman Estate and Historic New England

Coachman Hotel, South Lake Tahoe

While most of the hotels on our road trip were your typical La Quintas or Marriotts, and on one occasion a friend's home, this was the only interesting and entirely unique hotel. Located in South Lake Tahoe a half mile from the Nevada border, The Coachman is relatively new and one of the hippest hotels… Continue reading Coachman Hotel, South Lake Tahoe

Road Trip Day 15: Seneca Falls, NY and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park

I cannot believe this is the last post of our road trip. It's taken me quite a while to get through these but it's been so nice to relive this trip months later. 🙂 This was the last day of our road trip, only four and a half hours from home, but we could not… Continue reading Road Trip Day 15: Seneca Falls, NY and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park

Road Trip Days 12 and 13: Chicago and Toronto

Chicago: We last left off in Rochester, MN after spending our longest day in the car. Our next stop was to be Chicago, about 5 hours away. We would soon be leaving behind the quiet two-lane highways of Montana and South Dakota and entering more populated, busy areas. We were spending the night close by,… Continue reading Road Trip Days 12 and 13: Chicago and Toronto

Road Trip Day 11: Badlands National Park

This was another early morning, which meant we got to see another sunrise from the car. Unfortunately, I never took a picture but these sunrises were pretty epic. As this was our longest drive of the trip, we only had one stop planned the entire day. Badlands National Park. An hour outside of Rapid City,… Continue reading Road Trip Day 11: Badlands National Park

Road Trip Day 10: National Monuments- Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota

Day ten was what I like to call our National Monuments day. We had a long drive from Livingston, Montana to Rapid City, South Dakota, interspersed with stops at four National Monuments in Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota. It was a long day of driving but I'm glad that we broke it up with these… Continue reading Road Trip Day 10: National Monuments- Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota

Road Trip Day 9: Yellowstone National Park

Oh my, Yellowstone was exactly what I thought it would be and so much more. I can absolutely see how this is one of the most popular national parks in the country. As the first national park, established in 1872, and one of the largest, at 2.2 million acres and nearly 3500 square miles reaching… Continue reading Road Trip Day 9: Yellowstone National Park

Road Trip Days 7 and 8: Driving in Washington and Montana and the National Bison Range

The morning we left Seattle was the first time that we would pick up Interstate 90 at its very beginning (actually we picked it up about 10 miles in, but we drove by its start the day before in Seattle). This is the road we would be spending the rest of our trip on, aside… Continue reading Road Trip Days 7 and 8: Driving in Washington and Montana and the National Bison Range

Road Trip Days 5 and 6: Portland and Seattle

Portland:  After a night in Medford (in probably our least favorite hotel), we headed out early the next morning for Portland, Oregon, a short 4.5 hour drive. We had intended on stopping at Crater Lake National Park, northeast of Medford, before continuing our drive but with a large part of the road closed surrounding the… Continue reading Road Trip Days 5 and 6: Portland and Seattle
