After a spending a relaxing few days roadtripping through Canada, it was time to head home. But we made time for one last stop along the way: Ausable Chasm. Known locally as the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks, the chasm is a uniquely-carved, vertical-walled canyon made of 500 million year old rock. If you love the outdoors, then you’ll definitely enjoy spending the afternoon here. There are various trails to explore, and all are easily accessible for beginners. And I highly recommend you try rafting or tubing while you’re there. The rapids are pretty tame and provide just enough of a thrill (for me at least!).

Since we had a long car ride ahead of us, I wore a simple jumpsuit that was as comfy as a pair of pajamas. The trail l through the chasm is pretty easy and well-groomed, so I was comfortable in an old pair of sandals with a well-cushioned insole.

Once we left Toronto, it was off to Montreal for a short stay. On our way there, we stopped off for a boat tour of the Thousand Islands – an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada–US border in the Saint Lawrence River. The ride gave us a great overview of the region, and I can’t wait to take another trip back to explore some of those tiny little islands (especially Pollepel, home of the famous Bannerman Castle) even further.

We were famished by the time we arrived in Montreal, so we strolled through Old Town and found a wonderful French restaurant called Le Vieux Senateur tucked away on a little side street. We mostly spent our time relaxing and taking in the sights in this charming city that can easily make you feel as if you’ve been transported to Europe. And one activity we particularly enjoyed was our excursion to the Parc Olympique where we rode to the top of the Montreal Tower as well as explore the Biodome.

Runnin’ Through the 6 {Toronto Travel Diary}

After our stint in Niagara Falls, Eric and I were off to explore Toronto. I’ve been to Toronto a number of times, but I always find something new to experience while I’m there. While there weren’t any official Drake sightings during our stay, we still managed to have a great time. You can’t tell by the gorgeous blue skies in these photos, but there was a torrential downpour the morning we arrived in the city. Undeterred, we ducked into Ripley’s Aquarium for a couple of hours to wait out the rain. This turned out to be the best decision ever as there was so much to see. I had to be reluctantly torn away from the jellyfish and shark tanks because I seriously could have sat and stared all day.

Once the rain clouds cleared away and the sun poked out, we skipped over to the waterfront for a scenic cruise through the Toronto Islands (but not before grabbing a beaver tail for the ride!). Luckily for us, the weather was picture-perfect for the rest of our stay. We were famished by the time our boat docked early in the evening, so a quick Yelp search led us over to Flock for a casual, yet DELICIOUS, fried chicken dinner with all of the fixings. It was the perfect cap to a relaxing day before hitting the road again to venture further east.
