The Clinton Station Diner is one of New Jersey’s best.┬áThe coffee is always fresh, orange juice squeezed to order, hand-cut fries, and homemade bread/rolls for their sandwiches. Justin had an excellent burger while I went with the chicken cordon bleu sandwich on this most recent visit.

The historic and iconic Red Mill in Clinton, NJ. Though the prices of items at their Christmas market were too expensive ($35 for a hand-carved wooden spoon?), it did do a lot to get us into the Christmas spirit early on. No matter how many times I visit this town, I cannot help but take…

A Seastreak Voyage to Cold Spring, New York

After going with a friend herself last year, my mom wanted to gift Justin and I tickets aboard the Seastreak for their fall foliage cruise to Cold Spring, New York. The three of us took the journey this past weekend. It was my first time aboard the Seastreak, which departed from Highlands. I was impressed…
