Grand Rapids: Urban Elegance: Cafe Culture and Architecture

Grand Rapids wasn’t on my radar, but this picturesque urban landscape is full of Victorian, Gothic Revival, Beaux-Arts, and Art Deco styles. Beyond its architectural allure, Grand Rapids boasts cozy cafes like Madcap Cafe on Brianna Taylor Way, where we indulged in a leisurely breakfast, basking in natural light. Additionally, Grand Rapids pays tribute to its influential women through “Women’s Way,” a collection of murals scattered across the city that artfully highlights the stories of prominent local women. Grand Rapids is a city that seamlessly combines urban development with the beauty of the natural world.

Drive the Romantic Road in Germany and Rev Up Your Engine

The Romantic Road is a picturesque route connecting over twenty-four charming Bavaria towns. The term “Romantic Road” was coined in the 1950s to describe this 350-kilometer (approximately 217-mile) stretch of highway in southern Germany. Specifically, the Romantic Road denotes the route between Würzburg and Füssen. Consequently, it is often called the “Romantic Road for Couples in Love.”

Driving Solo Across Canada: Rochester to Grand Rapids

We’re finally on the last leg of our drive across America to visit family. And today, I am driving from Rochester to Buffalo and across Canada to Grand Rapids, Michigan. The drive covers most of southern Ontario, and between today and tomorrow, the drive will take me past 4 of the five great lakes. Today, the drive straddles parts of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, between Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. Lake Superior is the only lake I won’t see on this road trip because it is the northernmost and westernmost of the Great Lakes of North America. The Peace Bridge is located near the center of downtown Buffalo, New York, and Fort Erie, Ontario, separated by the Niagara River. It was one of the most scenic bridge crossings I’ve ever done.
