When Visiting Coney Island, Eat Here, Not There

Coney Island, New York. The words evoke memories of a time gone by, when traveling to the beach and going the rides on the boardwalk was the ultimate vacation. Much has changed since the early 1900s but many things still remain. The boardwalk is still there, but you can’t go under it anymore and some of the old rides still exist as memories of a time gone by.

There’s one other thing that has remained in Coney Island for over 100 years. Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs.

If You’re Planning Travel Over Thanksgiving, Remember These Often Overlooked Tasks

Up until last year, we never considered traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. For starters, it’s one of the busiest times of the year and we try to avoid going at those times whenever possible. We also like to spend the holidays at home with friends and family when possible. However, there comes a time when the things you want to do only happen over that period.

Our Favorite Places To Eat in Key West

We’ve been to Key West seven times since 2010 (Sharon also went an additional time in 2008). It’s a quick getaway for us, within driving distance or a short flight away. We like going to places we’ve been to before because many of the stresses of traveling are diminished when you know something about where you are. I totally get that some people will be like, “You shouldn’t go back to somewhere you’ve already been. There are so many new places to discover!” I totally agree with that and we do our best to get to new places, too. But we also do our best to revisit places where we’ve had a really good time. It’s like watching a movie you’ve seen or re-reading a book you like; it’s a comfort and you know it will be enjoyable.

One of the nice things of going to a location you’ve been before is that you have a pre-made list of favorites made by the best travel consultant you know – YOU! Continue reading “Our Favorite Places To Eat in Key West”
