Anniversary Trip, Days 29, 30, Niagara Falls, 7/11 and 12, 2007

After a very rainy trip from Ohio we arrived at Niagara Falls, Ontario around 3 PM. We are staying at the Sheraton on the Falls. Here is a picture of the falls from inside our room.

We wanted to make sure that we got a ride up to the Falls on the Maid of the Mist so that was our first endeavor. We donned our blue slickers and got aboard. It was fabulous! Even though there is a lot of trashy touristy stuff at Niagara Falls, the boat ride is great. You get up really close to the falls. The roar and the spray really make you aware of how powerful they are. In fact the boat ride was so good that we went back the next day and stood on the other side of the boat where it is even more intimidating.

Then we took a walk along the escarpment down to where the water flows over the edge. It is amazing. It has this glowing green color as it tumbles over the precipice.

We also had a couple of okay meals in the dining room of the hotel. Food, good, view, amazing. The biggest drawback of the hotel was the fact that you had to pay for internet and then it did not work. No more booking non-internet hotels!
