Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
We left the hotel this morning and got into the van once again for a fun filled day of driving with some sightseeing tacked onto the end. The drive was pretty uneventful but we were heading to one of the most iconic points on the trip, Niagara Falls. When we arrived at the falls we immediately went to horseshoe falls from a lookout view point. Before even getting all the way up to the guard rail we could hear the falls and feel the mist ...

Bus trip back was more of the same, buffet lunch at an Asian place, sushi & Chinese. Late afternoon we pulled into an outlet shopping centre.

... and staff the control room costs the City of Niagara Hydro Commission $85 an hour. From the American side of the falls, at least, it wasn’t at all as cool as it sounds.
