The Majestic Niagara Falls and the Not So Majestic Niagara Falls

The Niagara Falls was so cool!! When approaching a magnificent sight hit your retina, and you felt the mist on your face. As the typical tourists we decided to join the walk behind the falls (niagaraparks.com/niagara-falls-attractions/journey-behind-the-falls). Nothing much, but getting out on the platform next to the waterfall is nothing short of a soaking wet experience. No help in the yellow poncho we were given 🙂 The falls are for sure the best thing about this place. The rest of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is like a huge amusement park – really nothing to write home about…

We drove from Cleveland, Ohio, USA just for the day. A 3-4 hours drive, I believe it was. But who’s counting – in the company of good friends a road trip is always something to remember. Don’t forget your green card…!!!

  1. Niagara Falls is one of those iconic places to visit, at least once in a lifetime. It’s still on my travel bucket list … one day! Can’t wait to get drenched by the waterfalls 🙂

  2. Great post! me and my friends are going to NYC this summer, would you recommenced the Niagara falls as must see? we’re not sure whether to go or not 🙂

    • Thanks! I would say that depends on a few factors. How long are you staying in NYC – because there so much to see and do in the city itself. If you’ve been to NYC before, you might have time to spare and spend on a trip north. Because the trip from NYC to Niagara Falls is a long one, if you’re going by land (not a day trip). By air I guess it depends on how much you will have to pay for the flight. If you think you’ll never going to be in the area again, I would add it, but if you know for sure you’ll have the chance to do it later, and you’re short on time, then I’d just enjoy the city. If you’ve seen a waterfall of this magnitude before, it might not be that impressive.

    • Thanks! I was visiting a friend (I live in Norway), so probably won’t go back. Hoping to get to go to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe one day, though 🙂

Love to hear your comment :)
