One of my favorite things to do on a random weekend is take a trip around the state to a new establishment to eat. My wife and I will drive hours based on a review, article, tip, social media post...you get the point.
It's fun. It's quite adventurous. And it always satisfies the pallet.
While traveling this state, we have found amazing diners, great pubs, outstanding sandwich shops, and delicious coffee. They are all over the place, from coastal cities to the small western hamlets.
