Whenever I am visiting a new city (or even an old one) I like to wander about and discover new places, seek out the “hole in the wall” spots, in addition to the touristy attractions. But rather than follow a mob of people in a group, I prefer the idea of going at my own pace in case I want to stop along the way to snap a few pictures or grab a bite to eat.

I am glad that I brought an assortment of clothes with me for different climates, because a jacket came in handy when it dropped down to the 50’s and the wind felt like ice against our skin. After all, we did just move from Miami, so anything below 70 is “chilly” to us.
