Niagara is certainly one of those iconic tourist destinations that doesn’t disappoint.
We were very pleased to have allowed a full day for our trip to Niagara, and that we had booked both day and evening tours.
There is lots to see and the tours manage to fit in all the key elements, including many great viewing areas, without feeling too rushed.
I am sure I’m not the only one who didn’t realise there were three waterfalls.
As well as the Horseshoe and American Falls there is the smaller but still impressive Wedding Veil Falls.
A must is a trip on one of the Maid of the Mist boats.
The falls look different again at night as they are illuminated by coloured floodlights.
There is also an impressive firework display during the main tourist season.
Niagara Travel Hack
If you have got a good rain jacket wear that rather than those cheap ponchos that get handed out.
You can spot me in the Bridal Veil photo because I am the one wearing the red raincoat rather than an anonymous poncho.
I also noticed that the poncho wasn’t much use when you got on the Hurricane Deck as the polythene rips easily.
Meanwhile I stayed completely dry.
