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 …

Day 34: Newport, RI, Cape Cod

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. Before we started, Lauren read the description to Myles which mentioned that the trail gets rougher the farther you …

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 …

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.

Wild horses! In the morning, we drove down to Assateague National Park in Maryland to see the wild horses which roam Assateague Island.

Day 27: Cape May, Ferry to Lewes, Ocean City, MD

We booked it out of the KOA in the morning and grabbed some tasty breakfast at Uncle Bill's Pancake House. Afterward we went to Sunset Beach for a bit. Unfortunately, it was a slightly overcast and chilly day. The beach was difficult to walk on as the sand was very "squishy" which caused us to sink in …

Day 24: National Cathedral, Antietam National Battlefield

On our way out of D.C., we stopped by the National Cathedral and took a tour. The stain glass and architecture was magnificent. It was interesting that the cathedral is one of the most recently built cathedrals being only about 100 years old. Pft. We then headed towards Antietam National Battlefield where we stopped for gas …
