    The Red Lion Inn: Stockbridge, MA

    $0.00

    The Red Lion Inn has been taking care of travelers of all ages (a lot of boomers visit) for over 200 years! It is the oldest Inn in the United States and New England still running.

As you sit in the rocking chairs on the long porch you will glance down the street and feel as though Norman Rockwell is sitting right next to you. He lived right down the street. This town is all about history and the inn is a charter member of Historic Hotels of America.

    Irish Acres Gallery of Antiques

    $0.00

    Traveling to Irish Acres Gallery of Antiques from any direction takes you through the heart of the Kentucky horse country. The beautiful drive takes you past horse barn after horse barn that would be the envy of any human being. The stonewalls that line the narrow winding road remind you of a time gone by. We were meeting our extended family for lunch at “The Glitz” located in the gallery. We were off the beaten path in the small town of Nonesuch, Kentucky, 10 miles outside of Versailles.

    Two for the Price of One: Charleston/Daniel Island South Carolina

    $0.00

    A wonderful place to visit any time of year is Charleston, South Carolina. History, architecture, great food, water elements and charm all come to mind when describing this area. Recently, I was made aware of a 4,000 acre island within the Charleston area that was formerly owned by the Guggenheim Foundation. The first residential property did not make an appearance here until 1996. Since then it has become a planned community with 8 parks, 25 miles of trails, 23 miles of rivers, golf courses, tennis clubs, shops and restaurants. Bingo, now you get two great areas for the price of one!

  17. Magaline's Antique Mall

    I-65 Antiques in Kentucky

    $0.00

    Imagine you are the star of your own “American Pickers” or finding treasures for “Antiques Roadshow” or selling a Flea Market find to the guys on “Pawn Stars”? All of these shows are helped by Baby Boomers buying and selling the artifacts of our childhood. We love going on Patrol for rare and valuable items. We love to find a treasure a new home. Our road trips have shifted to slowing down and getting out of the car every hour or two. This change has gotten us off the interstates and into Antique Malls, Flea Markets, Antique Stores, Goodwill’s, and yard sales. Heading South on I-65 through Kentucky, here are five of our favorite spots.
