Good Sunday Morning to you my friends!
We had the pleasure to take the grandkids North to see Niagara Falls. It’s a quick trip that’s less then 2 hours from our LakeHouse.
The American Falls were seen first and it was awesome to see that water rushing over the Falls. The first time you see them and hear the roaring of the water… you are in awe.
We arrived at the Falls very early in the morning to beat the crowds
…and the suspicion of rain.
After a quick look at the Falls we got in a short line for the Maid of the Mist. It’s the blue boat you see on the river. The red boat is called Hornblower and you can access it on the Canadian side of the Falls. They both take turns getting very close to all the Falls.
And yes… you get a wee bit wet…!
I suggest packing ziplock bags to keep your phone and important articles dry!
While we dry off we stop at the gift shop to buy a magnet and too see the cuteness they were selling.
After the magnet was bought we hopped in the car and headed for Canada across the Rainbow Bridge, which had no wait. The Rainbow Bridge is the walking bridge to Canada as well. And sometimes a rainbow can be spotted. The Peace Bridge, in my opinion, is always busy with a wait. Whirlpool Rapids Bridge was under construction and closed when we were there.
Seeing the Falls from the Canadian side helps you put it all into perspective.
Standing at the top of the Canadian Falls is magnificent! The rushing of water going over the Falls is a sight to behold!
The Falls are easily accessed on both borders. I will say… get there EARLY to beat the crowds and the expensive parking!
And who knows… you may even zip along side the Falls!
Another area to see …is the Niagara Whirlpool which is downstream from the Falls.
A ride on the Aero Car over the whirlpool might be fun!
There is much to do on both Borders around the Falls. This was a quick day trip for us.
So after a quick trip to the Duty Free store to purchase delicious Maple Cream Cookies… we were on our way back home.
The best tip I can give you when planning your trip to the Falls…is to ARRIVE EARLY!
Thank you for tagging along with us on our quick trip to The Falls! I appreciate each and every one of you. 😊
Until Next Time ~Nancy
