Against Kate’s wishes, He and I went to Niagara Falls today. How fun. She thought we were insane to drive 3.5 hours to see water running over rock and then drive 3.5 hours home. We did it anyway…you know…rebellious parents 🙂 I chaperoned the high school band (kate’s year) to New York – the first stop was Niagara on the Canadian side. I got wet…I was tired. This time we went to the US side. I’m glad I’ve seen both sides. The horseshoe falls are better seen on the canadian side but personally I like the US side better. Not so commercialized and more like the typical U S park….although with that being said…if you are going to visit the area overnight – go to the canadian side – lots more hotels/restaurants – and much cleaner. The city of Niagara Falls (US) seems a little more run down. (My advice tlm0000 is stay on the canadian side but run over to the US side before you head for home.) I’ll post pics and a couple of videos when I get home.
Leaving in the AM. Always hard to leave my baby but he and I are both ready to get back to normal for awhile. We have been gone off and on for about two weeks.
Until next time…..
Decided to drop by and say hi! I’ve been on a little hiatus!Sounds like incredible fun! Life’s too short not to have fun like that!
Totally agree but if you’ve never been it’s all just wonderful. The Canadian city area is unbelievable especially for someone who has not been exposed to the hustle and bustle. The night time is fun and interesting if only to people watch. We sat in a restaurant on one of the busiest corners and just watched the action. The ferris wheel lights kept me up most of the night, how often can you say that. And the beauty of the falls is breathtaking. The American side is the prettiest way to see the falls for the first time, which is how we did it, stopped for awhile and enjoyed the beauty then headed over the bridge. Trying to make a border guard smile, not advised, they seem to have no sense of humor. Every picture you take of the Falls can be a postcard. Loved seeing the flower clock too. I wanna gooooo waaaaah!!!!!
I Cannot believe you did that! Excellent impulsive move!
