Sundays In My City-Letchworth State Park


We've made the move and have done only a little exploring. Before some of our stuff arrived we ventured out to Letchworth Park about an hour away from our new home. Letchworth State park is known as the "Grand Canyon of the East" because of the Genesee River that runs through it's three amazing waterfalls surrounded by large cliffs. The day we visited it we had no clue what to expect, put on our flip flops loaded the google maps and off we went. It was gorgeous, the scenery, green lush trees, trails and trails. A outdoor mecca of things to do for all ages.





Stop by and visit Unknown Mami and travel the world with her. 

Happy Sunday!

I have visited Letchworth State Park, and I agree w/you; it is indeed beautiful. It would be wonderful to be there on a day like this, when the temperature is extremely high. The shady trees and mist from the waterfalls - ahhh, I can feel it now.
Enjoy your new home!

Letchworth is so beautiful! I've only been in the wintertime--I imagine it must be gorgeous in the warmer months.

And I love that big smile on your daughter's face :-)

East Aurora is wonderful! My Mom lives in Orchard Park. As for shopping...well it has been many years since I go shopping there....I do know in Orchard Park there are a lot of little strip malls and plazas with good shopping. I wonder if Niagara Falls still have the outlet malls? Not sure, I bet they do though.
