Thousands of people are drawn to the mountain state every summer… and it isn’t just to see the picture-perfect views of West Virginia…it’s to enjoy the outdoor adventures that no other state in the country can offer – all in one weekend!
Whether it’s rock climbing, white-water rafting, zip lining, canoeing, or kayaking… it’s time to lace up your shoes, pick up your paddle, and put on your helmet to join the adventures on the gorge!
This week on The City Slicker… I’m taking you to Exhibition Coal Mine!
Here, visitors ride through the dark passages of a vintage coal mine that is one of four underground mines that could be toured in the United States.
It’s offered to give people a sense of what Coal Mining is like, and the coolest part about it… the guides are retired miners that provide firsthand accounts of the daily life of a Coal Miner!
You know that vacation spot your family goes to every year? That one place that you look forward to for weeks? And no matter how many years pass, it will always have a significant place in your life? Well, my special spot is Bimini. What started as a small island that only fishermen knew about, has now turned into one of the most popular vacation spots for all Miamians.
DISCLAIMER – I do miss the good old Bimini days when no one knew about the island, and there were only 10 of us there playing “catch the crabs” with the Bahamian locals. But hey – I cant’ be selfish forever.
I can go on and on bout how beautiful the island is forever, but since I know most of you reading this already know that, I’m going to let you in on even more little secrets that aren’t on all the resort itineraries or website.
This beach is the real one. There’s about a mile of white, soft sand with no tourists, no chairs, no partying. This is what the original Bimini was all about.
Make a right onto the street right after the straw market in town, and go up the road until you see the beach right in front of you.
Homemade pizza made by the one and only, Edith, is not made like your average pizza. The dough is actually Bimini Bread (THE BEST!!!) and the toppings are out of this world.
My personal fav: Lobster Pizza
If you haven’t had Bimini Bread, you haven’t been to Bimini.
Something amazing about the Bahamas? Being able to watch the locals catch the conch and make you salad or fritters right in front of you. Joe has had his little shack for about 20 years, and it’s still the best conch on the island.
Make sure to leave your mark on the wall! Ask them for the permanent marker!
I can give you a “touristy view” of the city, but… what fun is that?!
See everything New York City offers while enjoying the exhilaration of riding the waves! New York Harbor Jetski is only a short train ride away from the NYC, and you leave to explore Manhattan- from the water- at Pier 13 in Hoboken.
