My sister and I found some free time in our calendar’s to make a quick road trip to Niagara Falls. We both hadn’t been since we were very young and wanted to check things out again as adults… and unfortunately we were a little let down. Niagara Falls kind of feels like a cheap version of Vegas (even though neither of us have ever been). All of the shops, stores, and restaurants appear very “gimmicky” – and business try to pull you in with their extra sparkle… but we certainly weren’t fooled. The actual “falls” however were a completely different story. The impressive power of the rushing water as it sprints past you toward the horseshoe shaped cliff is nothing short of impressive; and no gimmicks are needed! One brave soul climbed the fence to get a little too close for comfort, but thankfully he managed to safely return from his trek. All in all, if you haven’t been to Niagara Falls, you should definitely check it out; just don’t plan to stay for more than a day.
