Danielle Call's Lists

  • Places I've been

  • 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.
  • My Napa Valley Wine Tour

    I recently visited Napa Valley and got so many recommendations from friends about which wineries to visit! Here I share some of my favorite Napa wineries both in the valley and in downtown Napa. I definitely recommend looking into the Priority Wine Pass. There are so many wineries that have deals and discounts through the pass that it would be silly not to invest in 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.
  • 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.
  • Dog Friendly East Coast US

    More and more people have been traveling with pets lately, and the number of pet adoptions this year has skyrocketed! If you're anything like me you want to bring your furry family member everywhere with you! This is a list of some of the dog friendly places that @finn.call_adventuredog has accompanied me to. As a general rule, even if a place states they are pet friendly, it is always nice to double check with someone when you first go in.
  • London Eats

    One of my favorite things to do while traveling is finding great local spots to eat, and this visit to London is no different.

    Some of the most unique, traditional, and historic pubs in Ireland's capital.

In that time I have visited countless historic sites and even had the chance to work at some. From archaeological sites to historic trades, Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown have a lot to offer any visitor to the Historic Triangle.
  • 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.

    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.
  • Hiking the Adirondacks

    Lake George, NY and Adirondack State Park is a popular destination for upstate New Yorkers and New Englanders alike. Lake George is one of the most beautiful and cleanest lakes in the US making it extremely popular in the summer. But you can visit Lake George and the Adirondacks any time of year and take advantage of over 2,000 miles of trails throughout the park!
  • 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.
  • 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!

    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.
  • 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).
  • 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.

    One of the things I like to travel for is FOOD! I love trying new flavors and learning new ways to work with food.

I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
