Great TR!
Great pics and TR.
Thank you!

Your baby is gorgeous
Aww thank you, b"h.

Is not feeding the baby while driving a safety issue or comfort?

BTW this TR is an encouragement  when everything goes wrong you stay positive and focused.
Safety. Would have to hold her not in a car seat/seatbelt. True point - was hard to do so, but I'm glad we made it passed the difficulties and had fun.

I can't friggin believe you wrote all that about Niagara Falls.  :P
I have been by the falls many many times, way to many to count, but immensely enjoyed the pictures and learnt about the small falls near the American falls ; "The small section of falls on the right side is called the Bridal Veil Falls".
   Was going to ask you what camera you used to take the pictures as they were extremely clear, but since you spilled the beans that you used an iPhone what model iPhone did you use?

  Enjoy the very detailed explanation with the pictures of that activity.
 
  I see you mentioned it's only 10 minutes to the Whirlpool Aero Car, ‏ wouldn't mind stopping there on a chol hamoed  trip this year pesach. (Will do some research on it thanks for the idea).
 Was it $12 per person or $12 per family?

You went to the Hershey store got your free samples? Lol
   
    All of us have passports as one year they said you're going to need passports to come into Canada, but then it's in the news the next year that law didn't come into effect yet and a birth certificate would be fine to cross the Canadian border from the US,  so I assume from your story that it's official you will need a passport and a birth certificate doesn't help(Aside for your DD).
    Now when I go for pesach be"h I want to see if I can get Nexus for a few family members.(IINM under 18 or under 13 didn't need? )

  Never realized there was a Coca-Cola Store,  was it next to the Hershey store meaning opposite from the falls and opposite from duty free?
   
  "Getting over the border was quick" Good to hear you made it out without any problems.
 
  Well done, enjoyed reading.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Glad you enjoyed! Used iPhone 6S. Whirlpool is $12 a person. Yep, got our free picture from the Hershey store. Yes, we needed passports aside from the baby. Coke store is the store next door to Hershey's. There's even an entrance way to walk from one store directly into the other.

Great TR and I love how you also plan all this fun stuff for stops on the drive to and from your destination!

Great TR. A little nail-biting in the beginning

Very nice! Just one point for you and anyone else about Watkins Glen, it really is beautiful, but the best way to do it is actually parking on the bottom and then taking the shuttle to the top and walking down, much less strenuous hike allows you to enjoy the gorgeous scenery!

Yep, that's a great idea. I'd either do this or go the normal way but turn around after 20 minutes. Most of the exciting falls are in the earlier part of the journey and based on how much smaller the crowds got as we made our way up, I'd assume most people did this.

Great TR! Just a note to anyone travelling that way and looking for a nice place to stop. Ithaca NY houses Cornell university which has a kosher dining hall under the star-k and a minyan 3 times a day, it can be a good stopping point depending on your needs (this is during semester so check first). There are also some great falls on the area, Ithaca falls and buttermilk falls.

Assuming I can Google that ,but do you have a precise location where that is?

It went up in category level / price. See the Niagara Falls thread. Some people booked stays at the old price for August and are selling - maybe your dates match up.
