Salem – Not Just a Halloween Destination

Salem – Not Just a Halloween Destination

Though Halloween is what Salem is best known for, this historic city/town has much to offer tourists, staycationers and day trippers alike.  We have visited Salem back in the summer in the past and there is much to like about this coastal city.  The cobblestone/brick sidewalks and streets remind me a bit of Faneuil Hall […]

Boston’s Donnie Wahlberg- Standing the Test of Time

If you were asked 20 years ago whether New Kids on the Block would still be performing or better yet whether Donnie Wahlberg was a solid working actor odds are you would have laughed.  Last night I was able to attend a function at Bentley University in Waltham where Donnie Wahlberg was asked to discuss […]

Is Big Papi’s Restaurant Moving to Boston?

This past summer driving on Route 9 in Framingham my family and I passed what used to be Big Papi’s Grille.  If you didn’t know it closed down back then because of rumored lack of business.  I always did find that it was an “interesting” location for that type of celebrity restaurant.  If you look […]
