Niagara Falls, or more accurately, NIAGARA FALLS?! WTF?!?!?!?!


Niagara Falls seems very different from what I remembered. VERY DIFFERENT.

After a short drive from Roc City, we arrived at the border. It was flawless! I practiced my border crossing speech with the husband and it went down like a charm! We were off! The lady didn’t even think it was weird that we had a small dog smushed up against the glass in the trunk! Score one for us!

We took the scenic route to the Falls, and it was sunny, high seventies and lovely. UNTIL WE GOT THERE. Holy cow what the heck happened to Niagara Falls. It is like Disneyland threw up everywhere. IN CANADA. They even wanted us to pay EIGHTEEN DOLLARS to park. ON A TUESDAY. IN CANADA. What is going on here?! There were Ripley’s Believe it Or Not things, lame arcades, Hard Rock Cafes, weird tacky restaurants that are done up like Chinese gardens, lots of “scare houses”, lots of crappy food, the works. Dislike. It seemed almost that more people were in the area where all the crap was instead of where the falls were.

We had a small picnic to stare at the crazy tourists taking a bagillion pictures and then we got the hell outta there. *Husband, as if being afraid of being deported from this fair country, wanted me to give the falls some credit in the beauty category. Ok. The falls were very fall like and fall-y. By their very nature, they are beautiful. Wahoo.

Smalldog was at first quite depressed about the over-the-top commercial crazy that is Niagara Falls, and then he perked up.

On to Toronto!

  1. Did you guys do the “Maid of the Mist?” Disneyland atmosphere notwithstanding, I agree with Stewart that the falls are amazing.
