Making it in Massachusetts

Posted on: July 21, 2009

Hey folks, just a quick pop in from the road- having a swell time in Mass, and catching up on a lot of wonderful places I hope to share with the world as soon as I return.

Highlights so far:

Milk bottle shaped restaurant in Raynham still rocking

Henry’s Root Beer in Taunton repainted and reopened as The Stand

Mill Pond Diner in Mattapoisett Wareham, tasty and photogenic

My fave Mid Mod Liquor store on the Bourne Rotary still hopping

Tin Man Diner reopened in North Falmouth in old diner site

Wellfleet Drive In packing them in at night and during the day

Kane’s donuts in Saugus- tasty treats and classic decor

Salem Willows- popcorn, vintage amusements, carousel

Leaning tower of Pizza still looms large over Route 1 Saugus

Iconic orange dinosaur puts Route 1 mini golf on the Retro Roadmap

And that’s just from the past few days! I’ve taken loads of photos, and the weather has turned rainy, so hopefully I will have a post or two up while I’m still on the road!

Am I missing your fave Mass Retro Roadmap destinations? Put them in the comments below, so I know what to add to my list!

      Thanks for the correction Larry- foolishly I was relying on my brain, which is swimming with diners and roadside delights this week!

  • Bill

    The Miss Florence Diner 99 Main St, Florence, Ma. 01040 Still has it’s vintage old world charm (1941). Also there is Look Restaurant 410 No. Main St., Leeds Ma. 01053

    • Bill – thanks for the reminder of the Miss Flo – I meant to go there last year but ran out of tummy room! And special thanks for hipping me to The Look – hadn’t heard of it, now it’s on my map of places to check out in Western MA – thanks!!
