Discover Lubec, Maine, Eastern Most Town in USA, For Fresh Lobster, Wild Blueberries and Heavenly Chocolate
Most vacationers consider a visit to Downeast Maine to be a weekend spent jostling through the crowds in Bar Harbor. But if that’s as far as you venture, you would be missing the true rugged beauty of a coastal Maine town that embraces the rhythm of the sea and centuries of seafaring traditions.
For an authentic Downeast experience far from summer tourists and Starbucks, drive past Washington County’s wild blueberry barrens, and along Maine’s Bold Coast to discover Lubec, Maine on the edge of Passamaquoddy Bay. Perched at the furthest point east in the continental United States, the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse greets the very first rays of sun each day before the rest of America
What an unforgettable way to spend a few days in Spain! While spending three weeks touring the south of Spain, we were encouraged by friends to check out the city of Ronda in the province of Malaga. So we did.
Approaching the town, the landscape gave us no clues as to what was ahead. The terrain was rather plain and agriculture oriented, until we got to town. Once in town, history starts to come alive as the narrow cobble stone streets echo the voices from the past.

Sunsets on the beach. That phrase alone can conjure up powerful, peaceful images. A beautiful sunset, in a beautiful location, can make a bad day good, or a good day even better. Cape Cod has no shortage of beautiful places to catch a sunset. I have been privileged to live here my entire life and have seen thousands of sunsets from hundreds of locations. Choosing a personal favorite would be an impossible task as I have many. However, for any new visitor to the Cape I can recommend the place to catch your first sunset. That place is Rock Harbor in Orleans.
What is more exciting to kids than Legos? Here’s our trip report of a toddler’s first visit to Legoland Discovery Center in New York. My son could not wait to go and we invited some friends join us for the trip.

This past November, the nation paused to commemorate 50th anniversary of the assassination of one of the most iconic presidents in American history. Elected President at the age of 43, John F. Kennedy was the youngest man to ever hold that office. Kennedy’s young family and his all-American background captured the hearts of the American people. Nicknamed “Camelot” for its idealism, the Kennedy Administration was respected and unique. The Kennedys were much easier to relate to than older, stuffier presidents of the past, and were quickly embraced by media as pop icons of the day.
A Drive to Cape Point Is A Must Do Activity In Cape Town
Sheer cliffs and rugged rocks towering 200 m above sea level and slashing deep into the agitated ocean provide an astounding background for the bio-diversity of the park. Cape Point is positioned on the south side of Table Mountain National Park and it’s the second visit to the area. In 2013 I went on an expedition to South Africa’s Cape Town, so this time I decided to take my wife and family along to see the breathtaking beauty of the African territories.
Top Things to do in Washington with your kids.
We recently took a winter getaway to Washington, DC. We wanted to go somewhere we could drive to and that would have great things for our toddler to enjoy. My husband and I have not been to Washington, DC since we were kids ourselves. Most of the museums are free in Washington, which makes it a particularly great family destination.
