Having a splash at Niagara Falls

If you ever decide to do Niagara Falls, definitely head to the Canadian side.

Niagara Falls is without a doubt one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life. I feel like I accomplished something by simply staring at it.

To be completely honest there’s not a whole lot of things to do in Niagara Falls the city except visit Niagara Falls the attraction. I mean there’s two casinos, a theme park of some kind and about three IHOPs. Aaaaaaand that’s it. You can easily just do it all in a day but I’d recommend two so that you get to see the Falls both during the day and at night (with the light show!).

The one thing you’d have to do though is the Hornblower Cruise (the Canadian version of the American side’s Maid of the Mist). You get to wear a super sexy red rain poncho as the ferry takes you by the gushing waterfalls. It’s such an amazing experience – I promise you #noragrets.

In terms of accommodation all of the hotels are more or less the same (unless you’re a Hilton/Four Seasons kind of person). They’re all on the main road and within walking distance of the Falls/two casinos/sort-of theme park.

I’m going to end this post with a fun fact: the first person to ever survive going over the falls was 63-year-old Annie Edson Taylor in a barrel. Yep.
