This is the second part of my trip to the US. here's a link to the first part of the trip https://www.tripoto.com/trip/the-american-trip-the-quiet-the-crowded-and-the-touristy-part-1-5b583fbd287cd
So strap in for this part will be taking you to Niagara falls, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago and Milwaukee.

Be sure to finish it.

For the next three days we had booked a tour from take4tours.com. I must say that these guys arrange their tours pretty well and with punctuality. And they know just what the tourists want to see and what to do. See here we were at their mercy, a group of 45 tourists, navigating the tour in English and Chinese, one loo break every 2 hours, and a bus ride of detailed instructions, with prompt repetitions. Not that it was a bad thing. Hahaha.
After one loo break and one food break where we had fried chicken and burgers at a joint called Rodney burgers, we reached the first attraction of the day- Secret caverns, Cobleskill.
Secret caverns are basically an accidentally discovered underground cave system with an enclosed water fall at the end of the caves. The attraction site is full of funny instructions and spray paint wall art. It was a fun place to visit. Takes about an hour at the most to complete.
Next up and last stop for the day was Niagara falls where we reached around 6pm in the evening. So the first time you see the waterfalls you are mesmerized- Seeing the sheer size of those three waterfalls and the hurtling waters, sending out a steady shower of vapours in the air. It is a must visit. On any US Trip. And you know why.
One more thing you should not miss at all is the night lights on the Niagara falls. The vivid play of colours on the waterfall in the dark adds another notch of beauty to the already scenic Niagara.
After a quick dinner at the mall right in front of the parking lot we turned in to Hotel Radisson, Niagara and concluded our first day.
