Niagara Falls is a definite must-see and great place to go for a fun weekend getaway. Not only can you watch the falls from afar, but you can get right up into the falls as well.
The Maid of the Mist is a boat ride that takes you right up close to the falls where you can feel, like the name states, the mist and water of the falls. You are given a poncho so you don’t get soaked. The boat takes you right in the middle of the Horseshoe Falls where it is a spectacular view and a great experience you will never forget.
With the Cave of Winds, you get to climb up a stairwell that is right next to the falls. In fact, you are so close to the falls that they spill over the stairwell and you are sometimes walking up through a current of water. Though you are given a poncho, you still get pretty soaked, so make sure to bring a change of clothes! I definitely recommend a camera that is able to get wet so you can take a bunch of great pictures as well.
During my weekend getaway there, we also made a stop at The Silo, a restaurant with a spectacular view right on the river that was on the show Man V. Food! Adam tries the Haystack and made it sound absolutely delicious on the show, so of course I had it too and it was great!
While visiting the falls, there are also a few Red Roof’s nearby that you can stay at to get the most out of your travel experience.
Safe travels and happy adventures!
