Rider's Travel Help

HEY everyone look I managed to nudge Diana enough to get a travel forum for us. I might go through some of the sub forums and grab travel topics for in here though but.

I am a self proclaimed travel master. I know how to work the planes and the busses, at least from the US. I'm great at finding trips and neat places, so ask me anything you want.

Uh, this is a nice addition. When I first saw it, I thought something along the lines of " Was this always here? I should have seen it before, if it was. But do they add new subforums? Anyway, let's check it out".

I have no questions at the moment, but mostly because I don't dream about traveling to the US. sorry

That's fine. My knowledge is mostly for here and leaving US because I got stuck here. I am hoping to expand it even more though...

After I decompress from my finals, I'm going to bombard this thread with plane travel questions. Be prepared. ETA is this weekend.

Based on food and food alone, what would be an ideal weekend travel? It can be anywhere in the US, it could be multiple contiguous states. I'm just curious.

Lemme introduce you to one of my favourite places to get away to on the East Coast of the USA: Corning NY.

It's a little more active during the summer than winter, since the best way to get around is by walking. The Gaffer Distract has so many amazing food stops along it. Here are the ones I've been to, and all of them I'd highly recommend.

-- Old World Cafe and Ice Cream
Their sammiches are to die for. Any time I make it up there, I try to make it in time to get a Globe, which is honestly one of my favourite sammiches in existence. They also have really good soups, and all their ingredients are fresh that day. Sometimes their menu changes because of that, but I've never had a bad meal there. Haven't had their icecream, but my mum says it's good. Also they stock Cherry Foxon Park as a drink to get which is also A+.

-- Hand + Foot
This is really just. A super neat place with a cool aesthetic. Their main table set up is communal, in the way that you sit next to everyone else and have a good community dinner while eating your own orders. They also have a bar and some tables if you really want to avoid the social aspect though. There's a lot of really unique food options there to explore with. It reminds me of experimental cooking where everything turns out great. I got a Pullman last time and was not disappointed in the least. They've also got some good beers on tap too, if you're into that.

-- Market Street Brewing Co.
I actually didn't get to try any of the food from here last time I went, since I had just had a large meal at Hand + Foot, but the beer was wonderful, and the bartender actually took the time to ask what my preferences were before recommending me a really good tap. The menu looks outstanding though, and next time I go up there I really want to try a few of their snacks...
(also the bartender was really cute not needed information I know but.)

-- Market Street Coffee and Tea
The first time I visited Corning, I was so excited to do more exploring the next day I woke up at a early hour and ran out to get breakfast only to find... a lot of places hadn't opened yet. But if you follow the scent of fresh roast to this cafe, you get a wonderful cup of coffee to start your morning. It's all roasted in house too, right in the window, and the shop itself is wonderfully decorated to brighten your day from just looks alone. Not to mention, the staff is super nice, and they have really good sense of fashion. (Most places in Corning sell little glass things on the side, since, well, so much is there. I got my favourite pair of earrings at this shop.)

-- Dippity Do Dahs
When the sign says Delicious Home Made Icecream, it's not lying in the least. I got a ... butter nut toffee, I think it was called, in a waffle cone. And it was some of the most phenomenal icecream I've had in a loooooong time. Also, it's not even that expensive? Compared to most regular icecream shops I come across, it has the same price range, but the quality is so much higher, and they let you try ANYTHING on display first before you pick out your cone.

And finally.
-- Bento Ya Masako Japanese Lunch
You might've noticed, this place... doesn't even have a facebook page. It doesn't have a lot of description, it's hours are short, not much is said at all. But if you love Japanese food, or even any sort of Asian food, go here. Just. Plan your entire trip around the fact you need to go here. I have never had such an amazing lunch in my life before I walked into here. It's a little room that's carpeted in a cheap ugly blue common look, with white walls and the most basic of tables. The kitchen is no bigger than your usual kitchen in your own home. There's only 9 menu choices, and you can't really substitute anything, and sometimes they change without warning.

This is because this place is run by an old grandmother, who just really loves cooking for people who enjoy it. All her kids grew up and moved out, so she just opened up this small shop so she can cook and people can eat. The plates are cheap, but over flowing with delicious food you can't find in any restaurant. Don't let the lack of show fool you, this is the best place in all of Corning for a lunch.

And make sure to tell her thank you, and how much you loved the food if you go. It'll make her day.

Wah, why doesn't it have more travel options? Greyhound, why do you have to be so expensive and so slow? By merit of East Coast, I consider everything so near, and yet that hours estimate has me wincing. # Hours for lunch. I'd have to research some compelling shopping/entertainment options to reweight the scales...

There's two amazing Museums, a lovely set of parks, a bunch of art galleries, and events in the square as well. (More in the summer than winter.) The daily parking is really cheap, and there's free parking after 5pm. Yeah, there's not much of a better way to get to it other than driving, but I think it's because the place is smaller and more hometowny than most tourist destinations. And, if you need some dinnerware or cooking dishes, the Corning Glass Shop isn't too far away.

... and all the prices are ultra cheap because they make all of it at the factory where the museum is. But the main reason I focused on just food is because you asked about food alone.

Ah! It's cookware Corning! Wow, that does sound really fun! <3 I was bemoaning going 'that's so accessible and yet TAKES SO MUCH TIME TO GET THERE'. If it was in Arizona for example, I'd say 'wow that sounds delicious', but this was a case of 'so close and yet so far'.
