Niagra Falls...

We drove from Michigan through Ontario, Canada, to Niagra Falls. It really is spectacular from the Canadian side. You can see the falls falling. There are two falls. American Falls...

...and Horseshoe Falls. There is mist coming off both of them and when the light hits it just right, you can see rainbows. It's very cool. And noisy. And damp depending on which way the mist is blowing.

You can't park near the falls. The walk from the parking lot to the falls takes you through some serious tourist-y stuff. The Frankenstein Burger King was pretty impressive.


King Kong was attached the the sideways Ripley's Believe It Or Not. I was happier to find fudge and a nut-covered carmel apple.

We got to our hotel and they asked if we would be willing to upgrade to a jacuzzi suite. Well, why not, right? There's a huge jacuzzi in one corner of the room and we might actually use it! Actually, no, we didn't. It just seemed a little icky.

I think everyone should see Niagara Falls at least once in their lives. What a spectacular view. We took our children 8 years ago. It would be our last family vacation together, but what an incredible memory. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
