Never been anywhere in this region. It's gonna be mostly 501's and my best t-shirts. Not concerned too much about price but the dress clothes are staying at home. I'll have a rental car and my GPS and will drive far for the can't miss chow in the area! Best pastries, breakfasts, coffee roasters, lunches and craft beer breweries/gastropubs (fantastic burgers?), dinners, specialty dessert places including artisnal ice creams & gelato. Local specialties/treasures? Did I forget anything?!

    1. You can't go wrong at Ye Olde Alpha. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is as friendly and fun as you'll find anywhere.

      1. If I only was to have one dinner in Wheeling, which restaurant would you recommend the most? I also noticed Figaretti's in the archive.
