Places that make you feel small!

Niagara Falls! A definite must see!

Quick Facts about Niagara Falls:
  • Niagara Falls are waterfalls of the Niagara river, its sits between Ontario and New York
  • Niagara Falls are former glaciers receded at the end of the last Ice Age
  • In a peak season, the water approaching the Falls can be as much as 202,000 cubic feet per second
  • There have been many daredevils who have braved going over the Falls in a barrel. On October 24, 1901, Annie Taylor was one of the first to go over the falls in a wooden barrel and survive! Annie was a 63 year old schoolteacher!

Below are some picture of my trip to Niagara, New York:

I love Niagara Falls! I have had the awesome opportunity to travel there with my family since I was a little girl! The Falls are so magnificient and have a way of making you feel so small when standing in awe of them! You have to go and visit to know what I am talking about!

There are several tours you can take of the falls, above is a shot of me on the Maid of the Mist tour. The Maid of the Mist is a boat tour that takes you as close to the falls as possible.

It is simply incredible! There is also the Journey behind the Falls tour, helicopter tours and great museums to check out while you are there.

Prices for Maid of the Mist:
Adults: $ 13.50
Children age 6-10: $7.85 and Children age 5 and under: FREE

If you get the chance to visit Niagara Falls, be sure to stay and see the Falls illuminated at night! So pretty!

Doesn't even look real, but it is!
Simply Magnificent!
