This was a vacation my son Max and I had talked about for a very long time. Max has been a Buffalo Bills fan for as long as I can remember, and having just graduated from UWO this year, the timing was perfect. We had reason for celebration, the Packers were playing the Bills (which only happens every 4 years), so a trip to New York seemed to be the perfect choice.
Our whirlwind trip began with a tour of Manhattan (12 hours, 15 miles and something like 37,000 steps). Luckily we were guided by my adorable niece who has lived in New York for the last 5 years, We saw a lot! Time Square, the 911 memorial, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Highline walkway, Macy’s and so much more!
From there we flew on to Buffalo where we spent the remainder of the vacation tailgating and enjoying the game, visiting Niagara Falls (amazing), eating some of the original “Buffalo Wings” and visiting their botanical gardens. The trip was amazing and I will forever be grateful for sharing those first experiences with my son.
Thank you Drexel for donating to our experiences!
