PLYMOUTH (CBS) — Two Massachusetts grandmothers are documenting their travels across the state in search of food, fun and adventure. They want to visit every community in the state.
“One of my granddaughters said last weekend, ‘we need to put you on TikTok!’ Then the other granddaughter said no I don’t want to see my grandma on TikTok,” said Beth Sobiloff from Plymouth.

She may not be on TikTok yet. But Sobiloff is not your average grandmother.
“So our current goal is to visit every city and town in Massachusetts, so we’re 30 down and 321 to go,” Sobiloff said.
Passionate about travel and adventure, including horseback riding and sailing, the 72-year-old web designer came up with the idea for a way to explore the Bay State more than a decade ago. .
“I was like you know what, I want to travel. I can do web design from anywhere, then I thought of doing it with a friend. And then the name came to mind: ‘Two grandmas on the road,’” Sobiloff said.
“Two Grannies on the Road”‘s travels through Massachusetts are documented on YouTube and Facebook.

“I’ve had different people I’ve worked with over the years, so we’ve always had two grannies on the road. Sometimes it’s a ‘Granny and a Fanny’, it’s my husband,” Sobiloff said.
For the past two years, she has traveled with her friend and grandmother Debbie Thelen.
The mode of transport ? A van, better known as the “Granny Mobile”. For overnight trips or more, there’s a motorhome – and both vehicles have put in plenty of miles, with plans for many more to come.
“We like to go to cities to explore and we talk to the historical commission and we explore the landscape and the businesses,” Sobiloff said.
The Plymouth grandmother of six hopes her travels will inspire others.
“If you have a goal, if you have a dream that you want to achieve, think outside the box and achieve it and it’s never too late,” Sobiloff said.
