2018

As I sit here and reflect on the incredible journeys 2017 has brought me, I can’t help but start thinking about what 2018 will bring!!

I’ve had an obsession with traveling, exploring, and discovering since I was a little kid, and the obsession has only GROWN!

A few months ago I created this web site with the hope to find really great places and share them for other people to enjoy, and I never expected it to evolve in the way that it has and become what it was CREATED to be: the site and RESOURCE people use to find the places they HAVE to go to while in a city! It really is a dream come true, and the expansion projected for next year is challenging but it’s going to be well worth it!

Here is SOME of what 2018 has in store, and what you guys can be looking forward to:

-New York City, New York

-Boston, Massachusetts

-South Carolina (Inman area)

-North Carolina (Kill Devil Hills area)

-Richmond, Virginia

-And possibly Memphis, Tennessee; Las Vegas, Nevada; parts of California

I hope to hear from you all about where you want to see featured in some of these places, or other cities you want me to explore! As always, feel free to email me at chelsea@youhavetogoto.com or comment on this post! Thank you all for your love and support this year!

Strawberry Fields Smoothies and Gelato

This week we have a spot that is one of my personal favorites and a frequent stop for me. Strawberry Fields Smoothies and Gelato in the heart of Ghent in Norfolk, Virginia! This is a locally owned shop that sells homemade gelato, and fresh fruit smoothies. This place is well known by the Norfolk natives, and is growing in popularity! Down to business: their smoothies are made with only fresh fruit, gelato, and fresh fruit juice. They have smoothie combinations listed on their menus, and won’t mind if you want to sub out one ingredient for another (useful for me because bananas in smoothies just doesn’t agree with my tastebuds.)

Their gelato is made in house each day, and their flavors vary almost every day. Some flavors include: vanilla, mango sorbetto, stracciatella, cookie dough, whiskey pecan, blueberries and cream, salted caramel, ooey gooey cake, Cap’n Crunch, pineapple coconut sorbetto, and samoa. That’s a shortened list compared to all of the flavors they make! They offer some vegan options too for you vegan gelato lovers out there. They post on their Facebook and Instagram pages almost daily of the flavors they have, so check them out before you come by to make sure there’s something that strikes your fancy. Or, come in and sample any flavors that you want! This is also a cute date spot, great for family outings, and good for a quick dessert run. (Even my dog Kujo loves it!) Do yourselves a favor and check them out! You HAVE to go to Strawberry Fields Smoothies and Gelato!
