This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip my wife and I made through eight New England States during the month of September – Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
I’ve covered Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to date.
Chapter 5 – We were up early and ready to leave Vermont and spend the day driving to our next destination, Niagara Falls in New York (had never been there before). After driving for so many days on the back roads it felt boring to get on a freeway, but, with that being said once we arrived at Niagara Falls it was all worth it.
We stayed at the Marriott on the Canadian side of the falls since we had enough points to get a really good room, and I must say it had a fabulous view just above the Canadian Falls!
We spent the afternoon and evening enjoying the sights and tourist spots with clear blue skies. When we woke up (about 4:00am to take some photos) clouds where beginning to gather and by breakfast time it was raining. After eating we headed to the Maid of the Mist boat cruise to get a close up view from under the falls. Wow, was it ever spectacular and a must see attraction!
Although they supply you with a plastic rain cover you can expect to get wet, especially if it’s raining out. There were a lot more tourist attractions to see, but we decided to get back on the road and keep moving.

Our next blog will be about a stop we made at a small town in Pennsylvania called Intercourse. Don’t let the name fool you, we met some traveling ladies at the Four Chimney’s Inn back in Vermont who told us all about this wonderful Amish town and decided to pay it a visit.
Hope you enjoy…
