A professional writer for more than two decades, Beth has lived in nearly a dozen states – from Missouri and Virginia to Connecticut and Vermont – and Toronto, Canada. In addition to traveling extensively in the U.S. and the U.K., she has a BA in Journalism from Point Park University (PA), a MA in Holocaust & Genocide Studies from Stockton University (NJ), and a Master of Professional Writing from Chatham University (PA). A writer and editor for Only In Your State since 2016, Beth grew up in and currently lives outside of Pittsburgh and when she’s not writing or hanging out with her bunnies, budgies, and chinchilla, she and her daughter are out chasing waterfalls.
Long gone are the days when root beer stands and drive-in restaurants were found in most American towns. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t long for a taste of nostalgia every now and then. We’re quite fortunate to have a nostalgic restaurant in Rhode Island that boasts a storied past and a menu full of deliciousness, including root beer made fresh daily. When you’re craving a taste of the past, make your way to Smithfield.
