Day Trip: Massachusetts North Shore

IMG_6791

Rainy day views from inside a coffee shop with the best HAZELNUT Coffee I have ever tasted. It was like candy. IMG_6792IMG_6793IMG_6794IMG_6795IMG_6796

What beach town dreams are made of…this just makes me the happiest little gal. IMG_6898IMG_6805IMG_6808IMG_6810IMG_6813IMG_6814IMG_6816IMG_6817IMG_6818IMG_6819IMG_6828IMG_6830

Cape Ann Brewing is one of my favorite breweries in Mass. Their beers are delicious, I especially loved their stout. The food was also delicious!IMG_6831IMG_6833IMG_6835IMG_6836IMG_6838IMG_6839

Head to Woodman’s of Essex  for your fill of fried seafood!IMG_6840IMG_6841IMG_6842

The Crane Estate at Castle Hill is amazing! I LOVE thinking about the family who lived here and feel so lucky that they opened it to the public. IMG_6846IMG_6847IMG_6848IMG_6849IMG_6851IMG_6853IMG_6855IMG_6856IMG_6857IMG_6863IMG_6864IMG_6865

We went hiking around the property and down to the beach where I picked up some amazing driftwood!IMG_6867IMG_6868IMG_6869IMG_6871IMG_6874IMG_6876

Next beer stop, Ipswich Ale Brewery.IMG_6877IMG_6878IMG_6882

I am going to be real honest with you, their beer was good but I was kinda put off because you can not make your own flight.. they were super accommodating and allowed me to try other beers that I wanted to try that were not in the flight but I am just putting that out there as my only complaint. We didn’t eat here because we were stuffed from our fried food frenzy at Woodman’s.IMG_6883IMG_6884IMG_6885

My amazing driftwood finds! So excited to get crafty with it!IMG_6887

So I have had Boom Sauce and Steal this Can before in San Francisco and had no idea that they were born and brewed in Mass– what a cool surprise! I love how industrial and hidden the tasting room is. I honestly felt like I was really cool for hitting this spot. ( HA) The tasting of all four beers on tap is free, yes, you heard that right , free! Head to Lord Hobo to try their beers and take some cans with you! We went home with Consolation Prize and Boom Sauce. IMG_6888IMG_6890IMG_6891

Then because we were ready for some dinner we headed to Lord Hobo restaurant in Cambridge. Great beer selection – lots of sours!IMG_6892

Amazing burger and fries – I was stuffed.IMG_6894IMG_6895

Dessert at home from The Scoop N Scootery. SO good – glad I can’t get this at home!IMG_6896
