Boston Duck Tours – Quack Quack

Boston Duck Tour Tug Boat

Before we went to Boston this summer, I polled my readers and friends asking them what are some of the attractions you ‘must do’ while in Beantown. The Duck Tour came up over and over. We have a similar tour here in Halifax, the ‘Harbour Hopper’ and we’ve been on that and loved it, so […]

Two Halifax Chefs Tell Their Grilling #FlavourStory … Only One Can Win

La Grille Collage

Um, where did August go? We are heading into Labour Day Weekend, can you believe it? Pack up your whites, pull out your woolies… well, maybe not yet, but summer is indeed starting to slip away. We Canadians don’t let go of summer quite that easily though, and for most of us Labour Day weekend […]

A #SonicareSmile For The Whole Family

Chels Smile

I’ve been a loyal Sonicare toothbrush user for years and during that time I have seen dramatic improvements in my overall dental health. I take so much pride in my cleaner, healthier smile that I even decided at 39 to get braces (Invisalign) to make that smile as great as it can possibly be. Now, my […]

Funtown Splashtown USA

Funtown Splashtown 3

On our first full day in Maine, we spent the majority of our time at Funtown Splashtown USA in Saco. As our photos show, we couldn’t have picked a better day to visit a water park. Funtown and Splashtown are actually two different parks at the same venue, but combo passes are the best value […]

DoubleTree by Hilton Boston Downtown

DoubleTree by Hilton Boston Downtown 8

We deviated from #MmmisforMaine to take a couple days to explore Boston, Massachusetts. While in Beantown, we stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston Downtown, which is located at 821 Washington St., in the heart of the Theatre District and right on the edge of Chinatown. I also may now have an addiction to the […]

Nova Star Cruises – The Return of Ferry Service Between Portland, Maine & Yarmouth, Nova Scotia (2 of 2)

Nova Star Cruises Currents Fine Dining 2

On my first post about Nova Star, I shared a lot of information about our crossing from Yarmouth to Portland, because that is the day crossing and there is just so much to do. The crossing from Portland to Yarmouth happens during the evening and overnight hours, so for us with a five year old, […]

Nova Star Cruises – The Return of Ferry Service Between Portland, Maine & Yarmouth, Nova Scotia (1 of 2)

Nova Star Cruises Ferry 5

Holy shamoly… I’m going through our vacation photos and realizing it’s going to take more than one post to talk about our experience on the new Nova Star Cruises ferry service between Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and Portland, Maine. So for now I want to talk about our overall experience on the way over to Maine, […]

CAASCO Bike-Assist App – Roadtrips & More

Keji 2008 048

We’ve had a CAA membership in the past, but since becoming members again earlier this year and then becoming an Ambassador for CAA South Central Ontario (CAASCO), I’ve really taken the time to find out what my member benefits are besides getting a boost when one of us leaves the dome light on. One of […]

First Stop, Yarmouth – Rodd Grand Yarmouth Hotel

Rodd Grand Yarmouth Hotel

We are wringing every last drop of summer out of 2014 and this time we are off to Maine and Massachusetts. I was really pleased when I heard that ferry service was being restored this summer between Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and Portland, Maine after a five year hiatus. As much as both Atlantic Canada and […]
