Road Trippin' With My 3 Favorite Allies

As Sean would say. We are taking our first family roadtrip this Friday. I think we will be totaling about 36 hrs in the car, and will be driving through 14 states. Things could get ugly with 2 youngsters in the back seat....but I'm praying we make it home with fond memories.

Our main destinations:
Philadephia
Washington DC
Palmyra
Niagra Falls
Toronto
New Hampshire
Vermont
Maine
Boston

Any places* we need to check out along the way? Suggestions are welcome.

*i'm referring to food, of course.

My book! You need my book! It's currently in a box. I'll get it unpacked by Friday morning. :)

Philadelphia - we like Reading Terminal Market. It's fun.

Washington DC - go to Good Stuff Eatery (burgers). You'll love it. And Baked & Wired Cupcakes in Georgetown.

Niagra Falls - Go on the Maid of the MIst boat - although I'm not sure how Jude (or Wyatt??) would do. It's amazing though.

Maine - I like Bar Harbor. It's cute. Eat a crab cake for me.

You'll have so much fun. :)

sounds so fun Jill! Watch some man vs food episodes if you want some ideas of places to eat. If you have netflix you can watch it instantly and choose the city. I don't know if they're the best places but they are interesting :)

Do you like lobster? If you do you have to have a Lobster Roll in Maine!(i am from there remember)you can get them anywhere, even some McDonalds have them but they are the best if you can get them from a vender on the side of the road. Maybe a little sketchy but very good!

good luck! take a portable DVD player-it will save your life! and ipods, too. nash loves to just put the headphones in and listen away.

i have no food suggestions for you, sorry. but have a fun trip!

PS, get a Philly cheese steak at Pat's or Gino's or Tony Luke's in Philadelphia. There's a good place in Reading Terminal Market, too.

Also - the Anthropologie there (by Rittenhouse Square) is beautiful. :)

If you like crab go to Bethesda Crab House Bethesda, Maryland, 10 minutes from Barbara's. They just dump a huge bucket of hot spiced steamed crabs on the table and bring a basket of corn on the cob. It's outstanding, but definately not kid friendly.

I also loved the Reading Terminal Market in Philly. All sorts of good food, especially in the Amish section.
