    For poetry fans, visiting the Homestead manor where Emily Dickinson once lived may make an interesting afternoon, reports The Chicago Tribune. Guests can take a 90-minute tour to see the rooms the female poet called home. The house next door, called Evergreens, is the home once owned by Dickinson's' brother, which has been preserved with furnishings in a 19th century style.

    According to Frommer's, travelers can find massive portions and fun flavors at Judie's restaurant. Popovers with apple butter are a favorite, as are the seafood gumbo with scallops, shrimp, lobster and salmon.
