Quick Visit To Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

It’s true what they say about Niagara Falls; it’s a unique destination and a whole lot of fun – especially for kids.  I thought I should visit the falls as I have never been there and because it was only 1.5 hours away from Rochester, NY.  I was in Rochester for a training seminar in November 2010 and thought I should pay a visit to the falls. Thus, I booked a room with a view at the Sheraton on the Falls hotel on the Canadian side.  I was looking forward to seeing the falls from the privacy of my own room.

After checking in, I saw the falls for the first time from my 10th floor room.  Amazing!  I knew I was going to sleep well that evening listening to the pleasant white noise of the falls.  I then walked down to the river and walked along the promenade to see the falls close up.  As it was drizzling, there weren’t a lot of people on the promenade, thus, I had a more peaceful experience.  The falls are much bigger than I expected and they make a lot of noise!

After having a delicious fish and chips dinner at “the Famous” a restaurant near the falls, I played a bit of Blackjack in the casino.  The following morning, I took another walk to the falls and did “The Journey Behind the Falls” tour.  It was pretty cool to see the falls from behind (via a portal).  I also descended further down to the base of the falls where I took some excellent pics.  I also learned about “ice bridges” and about some kid who actually survived falling down the falls in an inner tube.  Incredible!

While Niagara Falls is very overdeveloped with amusement parks and haunted houses, etc., I am glad I went there as they are quite impressive.
