Danielle Call's Lists

  • Places I've been

  • Backpacking the Northeast

    These are some of my wish list and planned backpacking trips around the northeast US.

    Bourbon Street gets all the attention but there are so many more great bars in the downtown area. Here are some of the best places and rooftops to grab a cocktail.
  • New Orleans Breakfast Spots

    There's so much more to breakfast in the Big Easy than beignets. Check out some of these spots that are all walkable from the French Quarter.

    Delicious dinner spots close to the French Quarter.

  • Kansas City Museums not to miss

    For a little history, check out these great Kansas City museums.

  • Best Places to Eat in Williamsburg, VA

    These are some of my favorite places to eat, grab a cup of coffee, or get a drink after dinner in Williamsburg. From Merchant Square to New Town, there are a lot of great restaurant options here.
  • Brunch in Boston

    Brunch is a big weekend activity in most cities and Boston is no exception! From Harvard Square to Back Bay, here are some of my favorite brunch/breakfast places in Boston.
  • Cheap Eats Hell's Kitchen

    We all know that NYC can be expensive, but it certainly doesn't have to be! There are so many great restaurants in the city that are one of a kind and that won't break the bank! Here are some fo the best cheap eats in the Hell's Kitchen area to help keep your budget happy!
  • Things to do in NYC with Kids

    You may be wondering how someone that doesn't have kids can recommend things to do with kids. Well, we were all kids once and the very first time I was in NYC I was only 9 years old! There are a ton of great things to do in the city with kids.
  • Best Craft Breweries in Upstate NY

    The New York State Craft Beer industry has exploded in the past 10 years. There are so many great small NY breweries throughout the state that it would take months to visit them all. These are some of the NY craft breweries in the upstate/capital district that on my go to list.
  • Best Bars and Restaurants in Hell's Kitchen

    Hell's Kitchen is no longer the seedy, gritty place that it used to be. Now when you walk down the street you'll find amazing coffee shops, bakeries, bars, and restaurants everywhere! Being close to all of these great food options was one of my favorite things about living in Hell's Kitchen! I hope you get to try some of these places on your next visit!
  • NYC Coffee Shops that are better than Starbucks

    One of my favorite things to do on weekends in the city is heading to one of my favorite cafe's for a cappuccino, and sitting by the window and people watching. The rule of thumb for most NYC dining/cafe's etc is if you can get it at home, don't have it here! This list should give you a bunch of coffee options around NYC that are not Starbucks (or dunks).
  • Things to do in Santorini Greece

    The quintessential Greek island covered with blue and white buildings and surrounded by the glittering Aegean Sea is a dream destination for many. There is so much more to do and see here than just relaxing in your cliffside hot tub watching the beautiful sunset; although that tends to be what draws people to Santorini Greece in the first place.
  • What Not To Do In NYC

    When you visit NYC there are a lot of things that people think are "must see" things. I can bet a good chunk of those things are generally avoided by New Yorkers. So this list is a little backwards - places to not go in NYC.
  • 8 Great Bagels in NYC

    Nothing hits the spot quite like a nice warm New York Bagel. And no matter what people say, you can't get them anywhere else in the world! Here are 8 of the best (in my opinion) places to get a bagel in the big apple.
  • Great Date Night Spots in NYC

    These are some of our favorite places to go for a cozy date night out in NYC. The city can definitely get loud and feel overwhelming sometimes, but these places allow you to get out and have a relaxing date night without being too crowded.
  • Finland Bucket List

    Most people like to get away from the cold and snow in the winter, but its got me dreaming of beautiful snow covered igloos, cozy saunas, and where I can see a reindeer and maybe go dog sledding!
  • Finger Lakes Winery Tour

    New York has destinations for so many different types of travelers. If you're looking for something a little different than the hustle and bustle of New York City, how about a weekend trip to the Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes region is the largest wine producing area in New York and consistently a top wine destination in the US.
  • Caribbean All Inclusive Resorts

    As much as I love winter I am definitely longing for some sand and surf right about now. As I'm planning my mid-winter trip to the Caribbean, here are some of the all inclusive resorts that I'm contemplating!
  • Best Festival Races

    This spring and summer I am most looking forward to getting outside and experiencing some of the most fun races that end in a celebration! I love a good road race especially when the finish line is filled with food trucks and beer tents! These are some of the most fun races I've done or are planning to do!
  • 9 Boston Bars to Drink Like a Local

    A trip to Boston is steeped in American History. You can walk the streets that Paul Revere walked, see where tea was thrown in the harbor (and see some of the actual tea - conservation is cool) and eat and drink in some of the historic institutions. But Boston has its own special tavern and bar history and these are some of the best bars to visit if you really want to drink like a local!
  • Delicious Food Festivals in the US

    One of the things I like to travel for is FOOD! I love trying new flavors and learning new ways to work with food. This list consists of some of the food festivals in the US that I would love to experience from the Bacon Festival in Iowa to the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival in Hawaii. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
  • Great Virginia Wineries

    With over 200 wineries, Virginia is one of the top 5 wine producing states in the US. Most people only think of California for US wine, but Virginia climate and soil make for delicious wines and beautiful vineyards amid the Blue Ridge Mountains. 200 wineries are a lot to choose from, but here are some that are on my list from Williamsburg Winery to Valhalla Vineyards in Roanoke, these offer delicious wines with stunning views in historic settings.
  • Guide to Saratoga Springs, NY

    That isn't just going to the horse races! Saratoga Springs is the northern capital of horse racing. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good day at the racetrack, but there is so much more to see and do in Saratoga than just admiring the thoroughbreds.
  • National Historic Parks and Monuments in New York

    National Parks have gotten a huge boost this year with the shift to more outdoor activities. But did you know, there's more to national parks than the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone? These are some of the many National Historical Parks you can visit in New York State such as Hyde Park, the home of FDR or The Grange, the home of Alexander Hamilton.
  • Ski the East

    It's finally winter and that means its time to hit the slopes! Colorado and the west are often the most visited ski areas, but skiing the east coast has just as many great ski resort options as well! Here are some great mountains and resorts where you can ski the east coast this winter season!
  • Best New Years Eve Celebrations in Europe

    With the new year approaching, I find myself planning more and more trips. This list is hopefully going to narrow down my choices for vacations in Europe to celebrate New Years Eve next year!
  • Best New Years Eve Celebrations in the US

    Looking to get away for New Years Eve but still want to stay close to home? Check out this list of fun and different NYE celebrations throughout the US. From the Peach drop in Atlanta to the Torchlight parade in Alaska, you'll find that there is more to New Years Eve than Times Square!
  • Maine Lighthouses

    Historic buildings that would guide sailors to the coast from around the world, these are some of Maine's most picturesque lighthouses. From Portland Head Light all the way up to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, you could take a week long road trip to try to see them all!
