Day 7 Friday, September 24th

We got up in the morning, had some coffee and were excited in realizing how close to Boston we actually were.. So we got our stuff together and it was back on the road for us. As we headed onto the highway and into Pennsylvania, we started seeing signs for New York. Which we were both like "WOW, we have actually driven so far east we are actually seeing signs for New York.

So we drive...I think by far my favorite state that we drove through was Pennsylvania. Although the roads were pretty crappy, all the hills and trees changing colors were so pretty. It sure made the drive through so much shorter.

New Jersey was also very uneventful and finally we reached the George Washington Bridge. Which crosses into New York state and Manhattan. Not long after we crossed the bridge we could see the outline of the city and most noticeably the Empire State Building. So as crazy as we are, we decided to get off the highway and drive straight into Manhattan. Now THAT was an experience.....driving in Manhattan and through Times Square at 8 PM on a Friday night. It was crazy, but definitely worth it. There were SO many people everywhere and all the lights were incredible. It was definitely the highlight of the trip for me. As we were driving through Times Square, all I could keep saying was "I can't believe we are in New York City". It really was awesome.

Finally we made our way back to the highway, drove through Connecticut and into Massachusetts. It was getting very late so we decided to spend the night with an old friend of Chris's in Amherst, MA.

Today we traveled in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
