Spring Break Adventure: New York

I'm back! My whirlwind Spring Break road trip has come to an end. We left Carbondale Friday after work and drove through the night. Our friend Caitlyn in Columbus stayed up and we got to visit her at 1am! It was a short but nice visit. By morning, we had made it to Buffalo, NY. We looked up a place to have breakfast and chose the Lake Effect Diner because it was featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
The 1950s diner was saved and moved from Pennsylvania to Buffalo. So cute but very tiny! We started with the fresh-squeezed OJ. I ordered Eggs Benedict. Great decision!

My only complaint was that the hash browns could have been a bit crispier. Brandon had the Blizzard Breakfast, it was huge!
His sausage was house-ground and tasted delicious. It also came with a pancake topped with a big ball of sugary butter.
When we were done, it was a short drive to Niagra Falls.

We explored the visitor's center first.
Then we headed outside, where we froze our butts off. But the view was worth it:
The mist turned into the snow that was falling on us.
Both Brandon and I had been here with our families before but it was our first time there together. We were glad we stopped and checked it off our list (and added it to the map).
