You can look, you can hear, and believe it or not, you can FEEL Niagara Falls…..from 2,652.37 feet (estimated). Water droplets and mist cover you, way on the other side of the Falls. You also hear languages from around the world. Natural wonders sort of beckon to people to come see them!
The Maid of the Mist still takes tourists close to the Falls. In the fourth photo, you can see people climbing a staircase to experience the water close up. We did this the last time we were here, in 2010. Mike changed from shorts to long pants for the experience, and he was sorry he did….he was drenched from head to foot, with his long pants clinging to him. At the time, we told people that it was the most awful, wonderful thing we had ever done. So wet, and yet so happy!
After that are photos from the tourist area, Clifton Hill. There is a Frankenstein attraction, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Guinness World Records Museum…and living high on weed! Moose and Squirrel is the name of our hotel coffee shop…a nod to Rocky and Bullwinkle. The last few photos are of our dinner stop, The Flying Saucer Restaurant. It opened in 1972 and celebrates all things alien. The food was pretty typical diner food, not bad, but you go there for the kitschiness, not the food. Fun place!
