Awesome location! Right next to the Harpers Ferry National
historic park, and the Shenandoah river (which has plenty of hidden tubing inlets if you don't wanna pay 35 bucks a person at River Rafters, an adventure sport company right next door to KOA). The campground was good, we were lucky to get a tent site right next to the woods, but most campsites were just in dirt and gravel areas. Definitely request a wooded site. The pool was great, clean. There's a couple big bouncy castles for kids and a massive bouncing pillow. However we went in July and it was just too hot, they should put a tent up over then bouncy pillow. Lots of bathroom facilities, clean enough for a campground that sees lots of foot traffic every day. A great hidden gem of this campground is the mini movie theater in the back of the registration building, playing 4-5 movies a day in nice air conditioning.
Definitely get the charcuterie! It's a charming little bar, and it's in a great location, between Main Street and Vine Street, so you have lots of dinner options around as well. But, if you're like me and prefer the liquid diet, you can't go wrong ordering a few of their bitter Mai Tais...
Visited here in September 2014 with my 11-month old son, and we had a great time. The visitor center is newly renovated and has an amazing museum inside. You're free to roam the historic site, which is loaded with ruins. I had a fabulous time taking loads of photos. The weather was hot, but beautiful.
PRO TIP: Ask the cashier for directions to the ghost town down the road. It was a total hidden gem!
Seriously the best hotel breakfast buffet! Bloody Mary's come with grilled shrimp and bacon garnish! Also they have a steak and egg station. The hotel itself is gorgeous. Very modern and spacious. There's an onsite Italian restaurant and a bar. Plus it's located in a perfect location, right across the street from White River State Park, and the canal walk, which has access to TONS of museums. Will definitely stay here again!
Amazing restaurant! The grilled bread appetizer and pickle assortment are great ways to start your meal. Cocktails are insane, and you seriously can't go wrong with anything you order. Scallops killed it for me, so tasty, on a cauliflower purée. Staff was lovely and ambiance felt like a warm, artsy, cafe from the 60s. Can't wait to go back!
Lombard Street is this super charming, heavily-flowered street that's become world-famous because of how crooked it is. You can also get a great shot of the city from atop it, as well. However, it causes quite a lot of aggravation for the residents of that particular stretch of Lombard Street, since it results in some heavy gridlock during tourist season.
This iconic building from Hannah and Her Sisters is The Langham. This is where Hannah (Mia Farrow) lived and held her annual Thanksgiving dinner. Don’t forget to visit the St. Regis-Sheraton Hotel, where Hannah’s husband (played by Michael Caine) has an affair with Hanna’s sister (played by Barbara Hershey), after they meet at the Pageant Print and Book Store, while browsing for e.e. cummings.
A Woody Allen tour of New York isn’t complete without a stop at The Carlyle Hotel, where Woody performs with the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band every Monday, and a walk through Central Park Zoo (a staple of Allen’s films).
Steve Sansweet is the chairman and CEO of Rancho Obi-Wan, a nonprofit museum that is home to the world's largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Sansweet's amassed so much Star Wars loot that it'd make Admiral Ackbar blush.
He's collected his 300,000-piece, Guinness World Records-certified treasure trove over 37 years. It's housed safely in an old hen house, which served around 20,000 egg-producing chickens until the '70s.
