Today is the final post about our road trip to New York! (You can read Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.) Our third day in New York was all about visiting Niagara Falls. None of us had ever been, and it was definitely one of those bucket list sights to visit that we knew would be equally enjoyable for all three of us!
It was pretty magical. While obviously jam-packed with tourists (like us), the falls themselves were as majestic as expected. The sound, the mist, the constant rainbows! And there weren’t so many people that you had to vie for spots to see them; there were plenty of areas with great views.
We opted to go on The Maid of The Mist boat tour, and get right up to the falls. The little miss loved that! She loved the waterfall spray all over her face, and the blue ponchos. But her most favorite part was watching the seagull and other sea birds bobbing all around on the waves near the base of the falls. She thought it was hilarious! Also, you saw them dive under to grab fish often which was pretty cool to watch.
Also while on The Maid of The Mist, we discovered the above extremely creep-ass place which I’ve decided is Pennywise’s vacation home at Niagara Falls. NOPE NOPE NOPE RUN AWAY. For those who haven’t read or watched IT by Stephen King, you will not get that reference. #sorrynotsorry
I didn’t realize that Niagara Falls has a huge park area around it, and that was a great bonus. The miss was able to have plenty of time to run around, climb on rocks, watch the critters, and get a ton of energy out before the big drive back home. We definitely want to go back when she is a little older, and do the adventure tours they offer there, which includes a cave behind one of the falls, and zip-lining in front of them!
What’s one place on your bucket list you’d like a plan a trip to see?
