State #25 Delaware

The First State, nicknamed so, as it was the first state to ratify the US Constitution on December 7, 1787 and is about twice the size of Rhode Island. It was also the home of E.I. du Pont. Yep, those du Ponts...of the company DuPont. Part of the Hagley Museum and Library, Eleuthèrian Mills was... Continue Reading →

State# 24 Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, to be more exact, the city of brotherly love. Still a big city so Trev's still not back to himself but he's feeling better. Philly is cleaner with bigger sidewalks so that helps. Our hotel was a bit of a ways from the historic district so we did a mix of trains, buses, and... Continue Reading →

It’s Up To You…

New York, New York. I enjoy the city. I like the lights, the different architectural building designs, people watching, all the events and sights, etc. I love it! Trevor hates it and I mean hates it. He's usually a chipper fun guy. From the moment we took the wrong route he was in a foul... Continue Reading →

Jersey Cows, Jersey Shores, team Jerseys, and the Boss was born in Long Branch, New Jersey. And there you have it. So when we set out this morning, we purposely selected a route that was a little longer because Trevor wanted to avoid driving in New York City to get to Harrison NJ, which is... Continue Reading →

State #22 Connecticut

I love the original Christmas in Connecticut movie but we are way too early for Christmas. I'm still excited visiting these states I've never been too. Connecticut is home to the Gillette Castle State Park. It is a pretty little drive in the woods. Peaceful. The Castle was the retirement home of William Gillette, actor,... Continue Reading →

State #21 Rhode Island

How about some good old fashioned encyclopedia type information to start this post? Rhode Island, the Ocean State, is the smallest state in size in the United States; North to South its 48 miles and East to West its 37 miles. It was also the last of the the original thirteen colonies to become a... Continue Reading →

State #20 Massachusetts

Before I dive into Massachusetts, I wanted to apologize for the weird font changes in the Maine post. I guess I was just being lazy and I copied the descriptions for the Narrows and Fort Knox from their website (I stated it was from their website so I wasn't worried about that). But apparently when... Continue Reading →

State #19 Maine

Ok, I'm just going to tell you now, get up and get a cup of coffee, find a comfy spot, and settle in because I should have broken this post into two posts due to the length but I didn't know it was going to be so long (like this sentence) until got too... Continue Reading →
