It was a cold thrilling couple of days in Niagara Falls (US side).
We arrived on Thursday night, an hour before midnight. Had some midnight supper from the hotel restaurant and went to bed for a not-so-packed the next day.
We're glad to have slept in as the Maid of the Mist service would not run until May! :( However it was still exciting to see the American Falls from the Observation Tower. The Bridal Veil (Luna) Falls was not visible from the tower even if it was next to it. It was a misty/foggy morning to say the least.
Before midday, we decided to cross the Rainbow Bridge (by foot) to Canada. It was a nice walk but visibility of the Falls was next to zero! ziltch! nada! Arriving across the bridge, we were greeted by the Rainbow Carrilion which played all sorts of tunes!
Visibility is still zero after we passed the customary gate and got another stamp in the passport! :)
Walked around for abit, up to Clifton Hill which was very touristy. It had all those museums (horror house, Guiness, Ripley's, etc...), even a look-a-like Millenium Wheel!
Took lunch at a pizza house before walking the shops looking for souvenirs and onwards to the Skylon Tower where most of Clifton Hill / Welland (CAN) / Lockport (US) / Buffalo can be seen. Not to mention, the Horseshoe Falls & Luna Falls! It was an awesome sight!
The late afternoon was getting rather cold, so back across to the US border and into the hotel. And as some would agree, once you're in... there's no going out again because it was all too tiring! :)
Had some dinner and called it the night, we can see bits of the illumination features of the falls while we packed up and got ready for Boston today!
