Question of the day

We’ve had some bad service here lately but I’d still say The Waterfront. It’s a restaurant that we really like. Here’s the link.
Sean’s never been to the waterfront, i’ll have to take him there some day.
Give us a call and we can go one night.
Great question! We like to take them boating on the Colorado River.
Le Petit in Ventura Harbor. Or Cafe Fiore in Ventura, both very different, both very good. So, if you are in the neighborhood, let me know, we’ll go there! 🙂
The Mall of America, not that i think its that interesting but everyone seems to want to go there and see it.
Isn’t that the truth Vicki? I still don’t get the fascination with that place. But you’re right. Everyone seems to want to go. That and Valleyfair. If I had a choice it would be VF.
We live 4 hours away from Niagara Falls. I never get tired of the falls. So if anyone comes a-touring around here, we drive up to Niagara.
I’m also proud of our local orchestra and its open-air concert place. But every time we take anyone there, it rains, LOL.
HEY!!! That’s that park in Minneapolis! I went there with Josh three years ago! We wandered around and climbed on things. He liked the big fish.
More tomorrow. I have to think about where to take people ’round here.
It is Laura. I remember going to this with Jason’s 6th grade class and it was brand new that year. It’s cool.
I live outside a small town, but we have our very own landmark… an old mill that sits on the side of the river that the historical society has preserved and turned into a museum. It’s one of Josh’s favorite places to go, because he can pull corn kernels off of a dry ear of corn, then grind the kernels into corn meal. It’s hard work and he really enjoys it. We also have an agricultural museum in town. Close by is the Field of Dreams, from the movie. Currently, it’s privately owned, so it’s quiet and peaceful, but it’s up for sale. Once it’s sold – probably to some commercial unit – it’s likely to become all tourist-y, which is sad. The family’s offered it to Kevin Costner, but he’s shown no interest. sad.
Otherwise, it’s into the “Big City” to see what’s going on. I usually tailor those visits to whatever interests the guests.
Favorite? That would have to be FORT SUMTER!
Since we live in Charleston, SC our guests typically want to see some of the Civil War history, the Historical Gardens and of course go to the beach. Just don’t come for a three day weekend and expect to go to all of them! lol
And consider this an invitation to you and your readers. I would be happy to act as a personal tour guide! I hate to waist all the knowledge I’ve learned by going on school field trips for the last two decades! lol 🙂
My husband would LOVE you… he’s a massive Civil War buff. Ever heard of Shelby Foote? He’s the guy that narrated that 12-hour PBS Civil War deal that Ken Burns did. Not only do we have that, we have the three-volume set of books (each approximately 700 pages) that served as part of the research base for that documentary. Steve has lost count of the number of times he’s read those books (by Foote) and watched the series. So, absolutely, if we ever get out east, you can count on a phone call from us!
Wow, I could show him some of the less visited and smaller (almost hidden) Forts. Seriously, look me up if you guys make it this way.
Remember, it all began right here! I’ve never done it but try Googleing “Charleston Battery” and see what pops up.
Great post, Joy! As a lifelong resident of the Charleston area, I must say that there are still sites that I have not visited. That is bad but what may be worse is that my grandmother who would have been 100 this year NEVER visited Fort Sumter and she was born only about 25 years after the Civil War started. Like you, I have visited many places on field trips with my children and of course visitors always want to go to the Market in spite of my pleadings to do something different. We are certainly blessed to live in such a special place where we can vacation where we live and work!
WOW MAYOR CHERYLL!!! What a very small world. I’m in West Ashley.
I’m glad you stumbled upon us Mayor. How did you happen to find us?
We don’t really ever have out of town guests. If we do it’s Jason’s family and they stay with Paul & Joy, and we go to The Waterfront. When my best friend comes in August we’re taking her to Benihanas. That’s my very favorite place to go, for the food and atmosphere. She’s never been there.
Shoot! I was thinking places to eat. Well most people that come here like to go to the Mall of America. I’m over that place, but I can see the attraction to it! I had it until I had been there quite a few times. My son loves it there!
So the Mall of America is near you guys?
Remember when I wrote about our “new kids” who’s millionaire aunt and uncle said to either put them in Foster Care of the orphanage when they were 2 and 4 years old, that they couldn’t take them?
Last month the millionair aunt and her thirteen year old daughter flew up to the Mall of America and stayed in a hotel across from the Mall FOR A FRIGGN WEEK!
That’s why she was just too worn out to make it to the kids’ soccer game that Saturday. Typicle.
I love taking them to some good tex mex restaurants for good food and delicious margaritas 🙂
I’d like to go to the Waterfront. ;+) It sounds really nice.
Out of town quests we usually take them to http://www.glacierparkinc.com/, because it is so grand and beautiful. To eat for breakfast we like to take them to Echo http://echolakecafe.com/. People seem to really enjoy eating there. My fathers favorite. We also may take them for a ride around Flathead Lake. We have several small towns around so we may go visit one of the little towns. That’s always fun. Summer is the time we get most of our visitors. Too bad because Winter there is something really beautiful about Winter here it’s so different.
One of my favorite childhood vacations with my parents was to Glacier National Park. I’d love to live near there!
My first choice is a little coffee shop in town for lunch- the atmosphere and the food are both great. Second choice is a bite to eat @ Granite City- their pepper corn hamburger topped w/ onion rings makes my mouth start to water, just typing this. We’re not too far from field of dreams either 🙂 say, 30 minutes or so.
I think I would be happy just chillin on that upper deck that overlooks the fields. Of course if you put a corn pile about a hundred yards during deer season that would be a huge plus!! 😉
