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.

While in Roswell we decided to go out for Thai food as we haven’t had for a while. We found a place called “A Taste of Thai” (apparently a very common name!) and it was really good! Here’s my review of it on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/taste-of-thai-roswell?hrid=ZjgsF6ufP0NBjpCax41e0A
While in Needles we visited Juicy’s Famous River Café – here’s our review (click here).
While in Gettysburg we were in the mood for pizza and stopped at a place near our RV park. It was good! Here’s my review of the place on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/tommys-pizza-gettysburg?hrid=fmAlu2HtXBXEfY9GCwWY_g
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!

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!

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!).

We stayed for a week in south-central New Hampshire just to relax and see the area. The campground is great! Here’s my review of it on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/swanzey-lake-camping-area-swanzey?hrid=Ij8U52Jo2fGtZdJBYVKH2A
We visited Medway ME just for the chance to see what the interior of Maine was like. We stayed at the Pine Grove Campground and really enjoyed it. It is a rustic campground, with large sites and we had one right along the river. Here’s my review on Yelp:
The campground we stayed at in the Lexington-Concord area was beautiful! Here’s my review of it on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/boston-minuteman-campground-littleton?hrid=d26FXxW5KstcSSEtD67UZQ
