All Wrapped Up In Chocolate Bliss At Glacier Confection

Whenever I am creating an itinerary for a new city to visit, I like to find a couple of sweet options. In Tulsa, it was obvious that a stop at Glacier Confection would be a requirement. We find chocolatiers to be a set of unique individuals, with the patience for incredible attention to detail. Each place has its own backstory, and we find them all to be interesting. When I reached out to the owner, Bill Copeland, he graciously invited us for a tour of his facility.Continue reading

Exploring The Woody Guthrie Center

A visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma offers a chance to immerse yourself in the culture of a Midwest city. At the Woody Guthrie Center you can learn about one of America’s greatest folksingers. Our visit occurred on a warm day in August. Of course, most days in August are going to be warm, since we are in the center of the United States. We like to think positive, so we had already prepared ourselves mentally for the weather. It sure beats torrential downpours.Continue reading

72 Hours In Philadelphia

Short stays require lots of research, as we want to see as many sites as possible. Our trip to Philadelphia challenged our ability to find a central location that allowed easy access by foot to a wide variety of attractions and restaurants. The Logan Philadelphia was a perfect fit, as it sat in between the art and historic districts. The view from the rooftop lounge (pictured at the top of the article) was quite calming, and allowed for great people watching.Continue reading

Dining Old School At Bobo’s Drive-In

You may wonder how we ended up dining at Bobo’s Drive In during a recent day trip to Topeka, Kansas. We had planned to take our grand-kids, as there were some kid friendly attractions we wanted to research. To pick the right dining establishment, I reached out to our followers for suggestions. Before long, we had a good list of places that sounded like fun spots for a casual meal. The overwhelming pick seemed to be this old school burger joint, so it was now all but a done deal.Continue reading
