5 Unforgettable Road Trips to Take in Your Lifetime

What's your favorite road trip destination?

I spent the night at this lighthouse keeper's guesthouse and had THE best lobster dinner of my life.

Fun fact: the lobsters that come from the Bay of Fundy are the hardest shell lobsters you'll find. Their sweet taste is attributed to their diet and the fact that they have to be extremely strong to fight the current and huge tide changes in this area of Nova Scotia. Pretty cool, eh?
