Niagara Falls Tour 2015
This is part 4 of the story of our trip, this part is to Niagara Falls, Philadelphia and Washington DC, in May of 2015.
It was part of a round the world trip that included France, London and the USA
(New York, Niagara Falls, Canyon Country and the Tall Trees)
Tour Day 1 New York - Corning - Niagara Falls - 406 Miles, 6h 41m, 652 km
"Depart Manhattan, heading northwest across New Jersey
through the Pocono Mountains and into upstate New York, arriving in
Corning at midday.
Day -1 New York to Niagara Falls
knew it was going to be a long day, a driving day, 400 miles or 650
kilometres in a bus is a really long day. Setting off early, we
quickly left New York behind and entered the green belt that seemed to
extend to Niagara Falls. Amazingly we stopped at McDonald's,
Stroudsburg PA for
morning tea, quite an interesting stop. Lunch
was at Corning in a Wegman's Supermarket. This supermarket had a
huge take away and dine-in food area, very different from Australian
Supermarkets. Finally we hit Niagara Falls with a stop at the Duty
Free first before heading into Canada via the Rainbow Bridge and then a
Passport check by the Canadians. Into our hotel and quickly out
again to see the sights before it got late and our dinner called.
The area near our hotel was very much an amusement park complex.
Winding our way through the streets we headed for the falls and soon found
them. Awesome! But it was getting dark so we headed back to our Hotel,
stopping off for dinner on the way.
