Upgrading vs. Keeping Our Current RV: Is The Grass Greener On The Bigger RV Side? 

Many of you have been in our shoes and have faced the decision of whether you want to keep your RV or upgrade to something bigger/better.  We’re pondering whether we should keep our current RV that is reliable and sort of close-ish to being paid off, but isn’t as comfortable as we’d like it to be. Or, should we purchase something that “fits” us better, but will be more expensive and could potentially have loads of problems.  We’re torn. Continue Reading

Taughannock-ing on Heaven’s Door

After visiting Niagara Falls, NY, we enjoyed all that Watkins Glen has to offer, including a stay at Watkins Glen State Park, an incredible visit to The Gorge, and a lovely afternoon at Seneca Lake’s waterfront.  The fourth day of our Finger Lakes Journey found us departing from Chateau LaFayette Reneau Winery, our gorgeous Harvest Host destination, and headed over rolling country roads toward Cayuga Lake, the longest of the eleven Finger Lakes in New York.

Seneca Lake, Watkins Glen, NY & Harvest Hosts

This is the third article in a series about The Roadster’s travels to New York’s Finger Lakes Region.  

After an incredible visit to The Gorge and enjoying all that Watkins Glen State Park has to offer, the third day our Finger Lakes journey was spent enjoying Seneca Lake and the town of Watkins Glen.  Our evening ended with being wowed by the lakefront views at a winery in Hector, NY.

A Small Village With Big Attractions

The Village of Watkins Glen has a population of about 1,860 people.  As small as this town is, it’s quite famous for several things.  In addition to The Gorge, the town also has a  NASCAR racetrack, called Watkins Glen International.  The town is steeped in racing history, including the famous street race, Watkins Glen Grand Prix, which takes place on the hilly roads of the State Park and in the town of Watkins Glen.

The GORGE-OUS Gorge & Watkins Glen State Park, New York

This is the second article in a series about The Roadster’s travels to New York’s Finger Lakes Region.  

After two days in Niagara Falls, NY, we braved the potholes and traffic on I-90 E and then took 14 South to Watkins Glen, NY (which took about 3.5 hours in Bessie the RV).  Once you get off I-90, it’s a gorgeous drive that took us through the historic town of Geneva, NY, and past wineries and farms along Seneca Lake.

Falling For Niagara Falls, NY

This is the first article in a series about The Roadster’s travels to New York’s Finger Lakes Region.  

I’ve been to Niagara Falls twice in my life.  The first time was fifteen-ish years ago, when my hubby (boyfriend at the time) cut an ad out of the paper for an all-inclusive Niagara Falls Valentine’s Weekend Extravaganza package that included food and a place to stay on the Canadian side.  We didn’t find out until later that the meal part of the package was a Denny’s coupon.
