Welcome to another Friday Feels where I share what I’m “feeling” this week. This post may contain affiliate links.
So I’m not a travel blogger by any means, but we road tripped with the kids to go camping for fall break. It was actually so fun that I had to share a bit of our trip. I say “actually” because I’m not big on camping. I love the outdoors – hiking, bonfires, smore’s, I’m all about it, but then I want a hot shower and a warm bed at the end of the day. Thankfully we weren’t totally roughing it because we stayed in a yurt! Think glorified tent with heat, bunkbeds and a mini-fridge, this I could handle.
It was pretty cute inside.
We stayed at 4 Mile Creek State Park in New York. It’s right on the border of the U.S. and Canada. Our campsite was on the shore of Lake Ontario and it was gorgeous!
You really can’t beat cooking by the fire at night while listening to the waves against the shore.
The campground was a 15 minute drive from Niagara Falls and the Niagara Gorge hiking trails. It was an absolutely beautiful area to hike.
We did a 7 mile route which was possibly one too many miles for our kiddos. We ended up carrying them the last mile on our backs, talk about a good workout.
We couldn’t leave without checking out Niagara Falls too.
After 3 days of yurt life, we (ok maybe just me) were ready for a hot shower and something a little more comfortable than sleeping on the bottom bunk. We headed to Toronto!
The kids had a great time at the Ripley’s Aquarium and the CN Tower, but both agreed the camping part of our trip was the highlight.
Now the Mr. has grand ideas of RV-ing across the country next fall…
I can’t say enough about this gorgeous area and it was great to unplug from the world. This will definitely go down as one of our favorite vacations ever and it was totally affordable. You can find more info on the park we stayed at here and the yurt was only $85 a night.
Oh and I did a few Instagram stories on our trip and got a ton of direct messages about this sweatshirt.
It’s from Old Navy and so so soft and comfy, find your’s here!
I snagged this one for our trip too!
Also if you are in the market for new running shoes these are the comfiest shoes ever and they look cute with jeans for running errands and stuff too.
We will be working on fall cleanup around here this weekend. We have been putting off pulling our dock out of the water and now it’s going to be in the 40’s this weekend, so it should be a fun time to hop in the lake, oops! Any volunteers to come help??
