Days 47-49: Cog Railway, Niagara Falls, Back to Indiana

At this point in our trip, we had been gone for so long we were ready to get home to a real shower and a nice dinner. For that reason, we decided to take a couple points of interest off our list so we could make it home sooner. We drove a few hours to …

Days 45-46: Acadia National Park

We ate breakfast at the hotel and drove about an hour to the visitor center in Acadia National Park. We talked to the park ranger about the best things to do in the park. She gave us some great suggestions, and we headed off to the Beehive Trail. This trail is not for the faint of heart. It …

Days 41-42: Boston

Driving in Boston was nuts. Who knows how anyone with a Massachusetts license plate obtained their license in the first place. The natives showed us no mercy as we tried our best to find our way around town. Since so many roads are layered on top of each other, our gps kept getting confused which one we …

Days 38-40: Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport, Plimoth Plantation

In the morning, we drove to Mystic Aquarium. Unlike the Ripley's Aquarium that we went to in Gatlinburg, this one was extremely crowded. Even so, we loved seeing all the sea life. We watched a sea lion show that was fascinating. We also got to see a whale and octopus that the Ripley's aquarium didn't have. That …

We packed up our tent and drove to Newport, RI where we planned on doing the cliff walk - a 4 mile hike along the rocky Rhode Island coast which was strewn with multi-million dollar homes.

Days 31-33: Bushkill Falls, Gillette Castle, Mystic KOA

On day 31, we visited Bushkill Falls - a gorge with multiple waterfalls. There were a few different trails but we chose to take the most difficult trail which went passed all of the major falls. It was a rainy day so we wore our ponchos and had a lot of fun on the trail. Since it …

Days 29-30: Philadelphia and Valley Forge

We left the casino hotel and drove 1.5 hours to Philadelphia, PA. We were very excited to see the historical parts of the city which were so vital to the beginning of our nation. We visited Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, and many other historical sites. We decided we needed to try some Philly cheesesteaks so we went …

Day 28: Assateague National Park, Dover Downs Casino

Wild horses! In the morning, we drove down to Assateague National Park in Maryland to see the wild horses which roam Assateague Island. We stopped by the visitor center to learn a little about the island and get a map. Immediately upon crossing the bridge, we were greeted by some plump horses munching on the roadside. …
