On my recent Road Trip to Canada, one of the places I visited was the Niagara Falls. Let me start by saying that words can’t do justice to the beauty and magnificence of these falls.
On my visit, I was surprised to find out that the Niagara Falls are made up of three falls; The American Falls, The Bridal Veil Falls, and The Horseshoe Falls. The first two falls are entirely in the United States, while the larger Horseshoe Falls lies on the border of the United States and Canada.
Come with me and experience the Niagara Falls as I saw it.
You can use the self serve kiosks if you are paying with credit or debit card. I paid with a card, but I didn’t feel like dealing with a machine so I went to a ticket booth instead. Even though their were many visitors, the ticket booths were surprisingly empty.
As I was on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, the prices are in Canadian.
Forgive my fingernail. I didn’t deem it necessary to get a manicure before I went camping. (That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.) 🙂
The admission price to the Niagara Falls Cruise does include the much-needed poncho. Also, if you plan to take a lot of photos and videos like i did, be aware that your phone or camera will get wet from the mist.
For clarity, let me say that two cruises operate at Niagara Falls. The Maid of the Mist and The Hornblower. The Maid of the Mist does tours on the American side of Niagara Falls, and The Hornblower makes trips on the Canadian side. Passengers on one boat never interact with passengers on the other, and there is no way of boarding a ship from the other side.
This is a view of The American Falls and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls to the right. You can also see the Hornblower boat.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, you should be a little wet from the mist. 🙂 Thank you for visiting my blog. Until next time. Peace!
