We made it to the falls. Fabulouus. What an amazing site. We weren't the only ones there. It is quite popular. We stood in line 15 or 20 minutes to get on the Maid of the Mist. It was worth every minute.
But I have to say, Once you've enjoyed the amazing natural phenomenon, you leave the waters behind and enter the world of The Tourist. Some have said that the Candian side of the falls is not as touristy. We didn't get to the US side so I can't compare. But I'll say I couldn't imagine a more touristy site. I called it the Disneyland of Canadian. James, my 11 year old, called it Paradise!
