Two Roads Brewing Company

Reviewed By hunter112 - Pawleys Island, South Carolina

I have never, ever in my life been welcomed more quickly or thoroughly by a brewery as I was here. Ryan told us the magnificent history of the building (it used to be a machine shop) and how the owners of the brewery put it all together just five years ago, it's a captivating tale.

The brews were marvelous, but I knew they were good from having tried them at Ambulance Brew House in Nanuet, NY, but they were so very, very fresh right at the brewery. It was stunning to look at, too, the artwork on the fermenters, the bar counter being made of recovered materials from the machine shop, and a beautiful sunset in the background. It was like "Beer in the Museum"!

We've already plotted our return on the way back.

Silver Sands State Park

Reviewed By ItIsSunny

Parking is free and, after leaving the parking lot, the paved & wooden walkways are well-kept. The walkways do drop abruptly into the sand, causing an unexpected drop & twisted ankle if you're not watching. The only toilet was a portable type in the parking lot. There were a few benches from which one could sit and watch the beautiful shoreline. Nice place to walk. Beaches were well-maintained.

Lordship Seawall

Reviewed By maisiemom - Trumbull, Connecticut

This is one of the few places in the area where you can park and take a walk on the beach without paying or walking very far. Nice walk through the area as well. Get an ice cream at Marnicks and enjoy some rays and waves!

Beardsley Zoo

Reviewed By JuniorKP - New Castle, Indiana

Stopped here for a quick break. I ended up staying a couple hours. It's not a big zoo but it is a fun one. Many exhibits had glass observation points and many places to escape the rain (it was raining). This would be good for small children as a learning experience and just have fun.

The Coastal Center at Milford Point

Reviewed By SherryRC - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

This site at sunset was gorgeous. When we arrived on a beautiful November afternoon, it was amazing. The parking lot had an ample amount of spaces. Once we parked, it was a short walk towards the left of the coastal center to absolutely amazing views. After watching the sun set, we walked back to the coastal center, walked up the circular staircase at the coastal center building and were able to view another spectacular view. Go, if you have the chance, you not regret it.

Bridgeport Bluefish Baseball Club

Reviewed By KRUIZ8204 - Bridgeport, Connecticut

I've watched a few Bluefish games. It's a nice place to spend an evening -- kids and adults alike seem to like it there. There's a few vendors from ice cream to craft beers and food. The prices are reasonable for a ballpark. It's so nice to see the trains go back in the background and watch the sun set.

you will enjoy going to the beach and sharing the day with seagulls, people digging for worm, looking at oysters in 2feet deep water! Or just sitting and feeling the breeze while eating your lunch!
