So, in his honor, we gather for you a few of Zee Bests from our road travels so far:
Zee Best Clam Chowder: For a while the winner was Allison's in Kennebunkport, ME - and it sure is good! But it was ultimately beaten by - believe it or not - the restaurant inside the Casino in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada! Darn - we don't have a picture!!
Zee Best Beach: Fort Pickens in Gulf Breeze, Florida- no question about it.
Zee Best Campground:
Well, the best LOCATION of a campground was Fort Pickens State Park, Florida because of that incredible beach! But the best campground overall is a toss-up between Bayou Segnette just outsideof New Orleans, LA, and Dale Hollow Lake Resort in Tennessee.
Here is Bayou Segnette:
Flat roomy, well-grounded sites, a wooden deck with picnic table (!) lots of grass, trees, but not overhanging your site, not overcrowded. It was a short drive to a ferry that took you right to the French Quarter of the city - for free!
And here is Dale Hollow: Grassy sites, level, lots of space, beautiful lake.
Zee Best Historical Attraction: The Citadel in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Zee Best Museum: Civil Rights Museum, Memphis Tennessee - at the Lorraine Hotel, where Martin Luther King was killed. Very moving exhibit not just about King but about all the people who marched and crusaded - and died - for equality.
