The last time I was at Niagara Falls, it was cold and cloudy and that prevented me from taking a boat ride to the base of the falls to experience what it’s like to get really really wet. However, there were no such problems today. The weather was hot and sunny. Although you wouldn’t know that when there’s a gigantic mist of water pouring over you.
The Maid of The Mist has operated at Niagara since 1846, giving tourists a close up look of the falls and a good soaking. The boat ride is one of the most popular things to do at Niagara and now I understand why. It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who comes to Niagara Falls.
Here’s a video of the boat ride and a few photos of the falls, including a night shot. Niagara Falls is lit up at night with some very colorful lights. There’s also a fireworks show at 10PM. I may post the fireworks video later.
