Main heading where I’ll start putting reviews, of RV parks, restaurants, dog parks, places we go etc.

Lunch in the Rocky Mountains – a great fresh deli to try!

We drove from one end of the Rocky Mountain Natl Park to the other and then back again so we could see the views from both directions (and it’s not a loop so it would have been a few hours to get back to start without driving back through the park) so while in the town on the other side, Estes Park, we stopped for lunch.

We wanted something light and fast so we stopped at “Scratch Deli and Bakery”. What a great place! They make almost everything from scratch, including the bread and they also smoked the turkey meat right there. The sandwiches were HUGE and really good. Here’s my review on Yelp:

Chinese food in Akron, NY – yum!

While in the Akron area (30 minutes outside of Buffalo) we decided to try some Chinese food.  China King is a little storefront right in the heart of Akron.  It doesn’t look like much, but the food was definitely worth it!

Here’s my review on Yelp:

Beaver Valley Campground in Cooperstown, NY

We came to Cooperstown, NY to see the Baseball Hall of Fame.  We are staying in a campground called Beaver Valley which is really nice!  It’s geared to baseball players who are here for a tournament either here at the campground (there’s a baseball diamond here!) or at the nearby “Dreams Fields” location.

There are lots of choices, tent sites, RV sites, and quite a few cabins.  Our site is in a wooded area that would be really nice in warm weather.  Unfortunately, the week we are here (mid-August!) it is cold and rainy.  Oh well!  They have some sites in a meadow, several walking trails, a pond and two laundry rooms.  They also have a playground for the kids and a pony lives here too!

Here’s my review on Yelp:


Top of the Hill – a great BBQ place in Brattleboro, VT

While we were stuck in the motel in Brattleboro we ate most dinners in our room (freezer and microwave food) but we went out a few times.  The choices were limited in this small town, but we did go to one place that was excellent – called “Top of the Hill BBQ” as it was on a small bluff above the river that runs through town.  Great food out of a very small kitchen (a bit larger than a food truck!).
