The Wisconsin Dells is one of my favorite weekend getaways in the state, regardless of the time of year. Whether you’re camping and appreciating the natural beauty of the area, having a blast at an outdoor or indoor water park, or going to all the touristy shops you can shake a stick at, there’s something in the Dells for everyone.
After planning my trip to Switzerland a couple years ago, my dad informed me that my great, great grandfather had been a ferry boat operator on Lake Thun.
Bob’s might be my favorite place to eat in Oregon, my home state. This is a big compliment given the gazillion vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants and food carts in Portland. For the uninitiated, Bob’s Red Mill is a brand of flours and other baking supplies that has a home base of Milwaukie. Just like on the packaging (and in the name of course), Bob’s is an adorable red mill that houses a restaurant and bakery, as well as a store for all your baking needs. Also, Bob is a real guy, and if your timing is right, you may see him eating his morning grits in the dining area or playing a tune on the piano.
