A Travellerspoint blog

5 May Sunday The long drive north to Niagara Falls in Canada

A beautiful day of travel through Pennsylvania, The Amish country and onto Niagara Falls

This morning we had an early start for a long day of driving.

Yesterday, we wrote the blog in a Starbucks near the National Mall and sent it off early. We went to the National Art Gallery while we waited for our ride back to Old Alexandria.

The National Art Gallery is a very impressive building.

We were in Virginia this morning then Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York State then Canada. We drove mainly through Pennsylvania for quite a bit of the day. Pennsylvania is a very wide state west to east but narrow south to north.

We drove through rolling countryside that was green and picturesque with small townships, farmland and lightly wooded treescapes. We stopped mid morning for a short break at a McDonalds that seemed to be overwhelmed by 54 people arriving at once. Our next stop was at Williamsport for lunch at a marketplace. Too many choices!!!!!
