Long Live Rock

A music lover’s guide to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Our great road trip: Memphis to Louisville to Cleveland finally culminates at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We came to pay tribute to our heroes and the music we grew up with…and will grow old with. I’ve played guitar in garage bands from the age of 13 and still play today with a fantastic group of talented musicians who play because we love it. Some things never change, and never should. So, here’s our take on the Rock Hall.

It should be noted that Memphis natives argue (with much conviction) that the Hall of Fame belongs there. If you haven’t seen our Memphis blog, please check it out. It starts with the birth of the Blues from the cotton fields to Beale Street. Then to Sam Phillips vision at Sun records and the birth of Rock and Roll. The first inductees came from there! Well…we’ll let you all decide, please comment below!
           
Set on the shore of Lake Erie, the massive glass pyramids are home to original musical instruments, song lyrics, stage props and wardrobe from the artists that gave us their heart and soul. To bring the Rock Hall’s exhibits to life, you’re immersed in film, video, interactive kiosks, reading material and, of course, the music. Here are the experiences that moved us.

St. John, USVI

We are thrilled to feature our first post from our dear friend and world traveller, Pam Lach

St. John, USVI is the perfect location for my husband and I and our family. There are so many options for every age range: swimming, snorkeling, sailing, paddle board, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, etc. We often wake up to see the magnificent sunrise, visit one or two beaches every day.

Here are a few reasons why the island is a coveted travel destination and why so many visitors come back every year.

What can you do with 24 hours in Louisville KY? Bourbon, Baseball and a whole lot more!

Part 2 of our great road trip: Memphis to Louisville to Cleveland.

With limited time in a new city you need to choose wisely, and we did! Recommendation: if you’re traveling with your significant other, each pick the one can’t miss destination and you’ll both be happy. Anything else you get to do is a plus!

Another amazing post contributed by our ultimate happy wanderer, Jean Devlin

There are many places that I travel to that I enjoy thoroughly but when it’s time to leave, I feel satisfied that I’ve seen and experienced what I came for. New Mexico is one of those places that I could return to time and time again. The quality of light, the clean air, stunning pueblo architecture, spectacular sunsets, fine art and natural beauty are just a few reasons to explore the area.

A Second Honeymoon in Romantic Montauk

A Second Honeymoon in Romantic Montauk

 We are honored to feature a good friend, long time colleague, and accomplished writer Carolyn Rothseid, sharing her first post on Go Here, There and Everywhere!

After 30 years I said YES! again, but NO to renewing vows at the Elvis Chapel. Yes to a sorely needed vacation closer to home was a much better idea for a second honeymoon. But where? Definitely somewhere on the water. Not too far. Not too crowded. Great food & wine. Total relaxation. We packed up the car (and the dog, of course) and set out for the very, very end of Long Island.

We set out for Montauk, the un-hampton Hampton. After a few hours on the highway, stopping through the towns, one more charming than the next, proved to be a fun way to start to refuel us. Water Mill winery, Bridgehampton home-grown produce market and East Hampton homemade donuts were amazing. Plus, exploring where Jackson Pollock lived was a heavenly path as we made our way out to THE END, as Montauk is affectionately nicknamed.

Sunshine still bright, our waterfront suite on the lake – actually an inlet of Long Island Sound with ripples of waves and fishing boats in the distance was the perfect spot. Dare I say for romance with that inviting fireplace? Off season at the seashore is our fave.

Blissful walks along the empty beach took us back to our first honeymoon. An anniversary dinner at a 4-star seafood restaurant was a fantastic surprise. Wasn’t expecting candlelight and music.

The next few days we were lovebirds out for exploring. Hiked trails along the dunes, admired surfers at famous Ditch Plains and toured the Lighthouse built with George Washington’s approval. Who knew?

In search of the perfect lobster roll, we found the varied culinary styles astonishing and all incredible. Maybe we’ll come back for the popular Chowder Festival in the fall. In love with MTK’s relaxed vibe, we found a piece of paradise with a place for the dog to run.
