If you like candy, True Treats in Harpers Ferry needs to be at the top of your must-visit list.
It's more than just a store.
It's like a museum of candy throughout the years.
The candy is arranged by time period - with everything from bugs to turkish delight.
Those hard-to-find favorites? You can get it all here.
And even candy that's mythical! Like Turkish Delight. And, yes, I had to try some.
It's almost like West Virginia's version of Willy Wonka will all the brightly colored treats.
This would be a fun idea to make a gift of a certain time period full of candy for someone.
Have you been?

Coffee is key in any city.
In Harpers Ferry, the go-to coffee shop is The Coffee Mill.
They have a variety of coffee drinks, as well as menu items like salads and sandwiches.
I went for a turtle mocha.
It is made with espresso, steamed milk, chocolate and hazelnut.
And - some shots from Harpers Ferry!

Betty's Restaurant is known for its sausage gravy.
This Shepherdstown breakfast restaurant is cash only, which has prohibited me in the past from checking it out. Until now.
So I had to try the biscuit & sausage gravy. And I also got a pancake - just one! - to balance out the sweet and the savory.
Something about this homestyle meal just makes it so comforting.
What's your favorite dish here?
And, while here I was able to check out the Rumsey Monument.
And this teeny, tiny house!

If you're looking for good tacos in the Eastern Panhandle, look no further than Ortega's Taco Shop.
This small shop serves up a few different kinds of tasty tacos.
They have burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, taco salads and sides.
I got a chicken taco on a crispy shell with lettuce, tomato, cheese and sour cream. And I got a street taco with carne asada, cilantro and onion.
Have you been? What's your favorite taco?
