This is part seven of a seven-part recap of a road trip through New England and Canada. Click to read the previous recaps of Boston; Portland, ME; Littleton, NH; Quebec City; Montreal; and Toronto.

So what do you do when you’re driving 11 hours to get home to Baltimore from Toronto?

You stop at Niagra Falls of course!

You stare at the sheer power and beauty…

hop on a boat to take a closer look…

throw on a blue plastic parka and get drenched by sprays of water shooting off the rocks underneath the falls.

You pose for a few pictures, hop back in the car exhilarated, and proceed to spend the rest of the drive looking up info about the falls on Wikipedia. Until your phone runs out of battery.

But it’s ok, because you get to stop for lunch at the home of the original buffalo wing in Buffalo, NY. And then you decide that every vacation should end with blue cheese and buffalo sauce. Am I right?

Thanks again for letting me share this trip with you. It was such a great adventure and I’ve loved reliving the memories through my posts! I promise to return to the regularly scheduled programming now. xo
