    • Buffalo River - we stayed at Buffalo Point State Park where the river was literally steps away from the RV. Dirst Canoe Rental dropped us off at Spring Creek so we could paddle/float back to Buffalo Point where we were camping. An idyllic day spent singing The Buffalo Flows after seeing the informational video at the ranger station.

    • Hollis - a little town just an hour from Boston, Massachusetts. Hollis is home to the Lull Farm Stand, which in turn was home to some really dang-good croissants (I loved the ham/cheese and pumpkin-stuffed options), myriad apple varietals, and simple-yet-bowl-licking-worthy chicken pot pie.
    • Brookline - where we stayed (and ate 2 entire pot pies - though not in one night). Andres Institute of Art had some really cool sculpture pieces scattered along the hiking trails. Worth at least an afternoon to work off the croissants from Lull’s.

    • Melt Bar & Grilled - some of the craziest grilled cheese sandwiches I’ve ever seen. Not exactly a fantastic grilled cheese (too much going on to just be about the cheese), but definitely worth trying as a sandwich. Multiple locations throughout Ohio, we went to Cleveland Heights for these monsters:

    • Niagara Falls (the Canada side) - a total tourist trap that was still a definite must-see. We got soaked on the Hornblower Voyage to the Falls” boat tour, saw an aerial view from the Skylon Tower observatory deck, and had our very first ever poutine at the Taps on Queen brewhouse/restaurant. WARNING: Skylon’s package deal with the 4D movie is not worth it. Unless you enjoy terrible movies. Light through the mistLight through the mist
