At last...New York!

This morning, we left the serenity of the

New York Trip 2010 007

Amish Country and headed down the last of the

New York Trip 2010 008

country roads.  Far, too soon we were on the interstate that would lead us out

New York Trip 2010 010

of Ohio, through

New York Trip 2010 020

Pennsylvania and on into the state of

New York Trip 2010 022

New York.

Once we crossed the New York state line, we drove through

toll booth after toll booth.  I think today we have paid about $20 in tolls today.  We traveled

under bridges and

over bridges.

By around 1:00 we arrived at our destination...

Grand Island, New York and the

Niagara Falls KOA.

We were soon set up in our

New York Trip 2010 051

site and took a quick look

around the park.  Then, after lunch and a little rest time, we decided to head out to the main attraction...

Before we even parked, we could see

the mist rising from the

falls.  We decided to go out on the

New York Trip 2010 074

observation deck to get

New York Trip 2010 104

a closer look.

We then decided to take the

New York Trip 2010 079

Maid of the Mist boat ride for that really up close look.

Afterwards, we headed in to Buffalo where we had planned for dinner at the Famous

Anchor Bar and Grill...home of the original

New York Trip 2010 120

Buffalo Wing.  We also had

pizza!  Yummy!!  Food TV didn't let us was everything they said it was.

Now, back at the motor home, all travelers are crashed and dreaming of tomorrow's adventure.


  1. Wow! What a busy day you all had. Niagra Falls is on our "to see" list (but then most everything is).
    Can't wait to see what is in store tomorrow. Have fun!

  2. I hope you'll go back and see Niagara Falls at night. We took my Mom and Dad there in 2000 (on the Canada side) and at night it was all lit up with colored lights. Such an amazing place, day or night! Have fun.

  3. When I was little and we rode the Maid of the Mist...they had whale-blubber rain they smelled...When I took Tony there... they had switched over to the plastic ponchos! Kinda made me mad!!!

  4. I've been following your blog for 6 months or so now...I love reading your stories! We have yet to hit the road but as of recently, we just amped up our search for a perfect rig. If you are still in the Buffalo area - check out a place called "Duff's". They have better wings than Anchor Bar. Take that from a Buffalonian. :)


  5. Mmmmm, the food looks great and the falls are spectacular. We are hoping to get there this fall, after Goshen, as Brenda has yet to try the wings or pizza in Buffalo, oh yah or see the falls yet.

  6. Oh how fun!! Our son used to live in Buffalo and we hit the NY side of the falls while visiting in the spring. Haven't been to the Canadian side since our kids were young. Good food in that area. The wings, the beef sandwiches and hot dogs, are a few I remember.
    Can't wait to see what you have planned for today.

  7. Great pictures, another great attraction is the Cave of the Winds which takes you down to the foot of the falls, you need slickers which are supplied for this also. I remeber this from a trip there when i was a boy hopefully it is still there.That pizza looks good, A real New York Pizza,the grandkids will love Niagra Falls, on the Canadian side they had a large park also. Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

  8. Glad you made it there safely. Enjoy the Falls, hope you brought raincoats!

    Those NY state tolls are killers. With the fifth wheel we wound up spending about $40 each time we go through and it was our best route to Ohio.

  9. Your grandkids sure are getting a huge variety of experiences... you are wonderful grandparents!

    We were at Niagara falls about 30 years ago, have to go back again soon!
