Points North: MA, NH, RI

May 2015: Finally an excuse to head North to one of my favorite areas in all the world: New England. I attended a conference in Boston, checked a new state off my list (Rhode Island), and rebooted my spirit with family and friends.

Newport, Rhode Island
Our Air BNB was quaint, but our host was a little kooky. We got around in a rental car, which was nice but you might be able to do without it depending on where you stay.
Willy’s Burger Bar + Rotisserie:  599 Thames Street
Atlantic Grille: My first stuffed quahog – 91 Aquidneck Avenue
Newport Creamery Sandwiches:  Perfect for picnicking – Two locations
* Bonus: Navy Blue Angels show at a local airfield. Tremendous.

Boston
Friendly Toast near MIT – 1 Kendall Square Cambridge (also in Portsmouth NH)
Yard House near Fenway for a wonderful dinner with friends – 126 Brookline Avenue
Mike’s Pastries in North End – Killer cannoli – 300 Hanover Street
75 on Liberty Wharf – Great place to raise a glass on the water near the Convention Center
Legal Test Kitchen – fried oyster bahn mi, believe it – 225 Northern Avenue
Flour Bakery – For your sweet tooth – multiple locations

Two faves of mine in coastal New Hampshire:
Petey’s – where I demand an annual lobster roll – 1870 Ocean Harbor Blvd Rye NH
Heavenly Donuts – speaks for itself – multiple locations in MA NH
