On the Road Again!

We moved to NYC from Alabama almost 3 years ago. Have you been along for the ride the whole time? If so, thanks! When you live in the city, there is no need to have a car. The garages are very expensive and walking, cabs, trains and buses are just a way of life. We've adapted this lifestyle and just rented cars when we wanted to go on quick getaways. Well, since summer is just around the corner and our days on the East coast are numbered we decided to bring A's old car to the city so we could have lots of getaways this summer! His parents have been using the car (they both have smaller cars and it is a old Explorer, so they enjoyed having a "big" car.)

On Friday night, A flew to Bama and he hit the road yesterday morning. He made it to Hagerstown, Maryland. He is so funny. He stayed in a Motel 6, went to dinner at Ruby Tuesdays by himself (with all of the local kids who were heading to Hagerstown High prom) and went to the local theater to see Iron Man 2! Ha! Big adventures in Hagerstown! He currently in route to the Upper East Side! We've missed him terribly this weekend and can't wait to see him in a few hours.

I'm so excited to plan some weekend and day trips. My question for you...where should we go? I would love to pack Daisy up and bring her to a dog friendly beach. She used to be such the swimmer and she hasn't been in a car since the day she arrived! I can't wait to take her somewhere...anywhere! Please leave your suggestions in the comment section on where you think we should check out this summer. We already have a trip placed to Newport. Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes a 2nd vote for Blue Hill.

Bear Mountain is also supposed to be very nice. There's a Zoo I'm sure the little one would enjoy.

Montauk is bit of a hike out to the end of Long Island but a great beach.

Very envious of your summer car! Enjoy!

Have you been to Upstate NY? Lake George and Saratoga are stunning this time of year. And you would love Manchester, VT area too. But if you come up to any of those spots, tell me as I would love to meet up for coffee after reading for all these years. Have a fun summer out and about!
