Niagara Falls

People from all over the world are drawn to the beauty of Niagara Falls, Ontario.  The Falls are really two Falls: the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls (sometimes called Rainbow falls, including the Bridal Veil Falls).  The Falls have changed a lot since our childhoods, where families would settle along the grassy fields, with their picnics, often fighting over the park’s picnic tables.  Since then, two casinos have been built, as well as some nice hotels, and restaurants, although the downtown strip is still carrying many of the same souvenir and novelty shops.  Niagara Falls is the kind of place that has something for everyone.  You see entire families, couples, friends, and people who are there just for the casinos (not for us).  Because we’re in Toronto, we’re pretty close to the Falls, but we try not to take the beauty of the Falls for granted, because really, they are spectacular.

The closest you can get to the Horseshoe Falls.

 

There’s always a rainbow somewhere in Niagara Falls.

It’s always a nice treat to take advantage of a little cross-border shopping.

 

There are so many spots from where you can get a great view of the Falls.
