Get Out Your Wallets and Come Visit Canada!!!!

If you have not been to Niagara Falls, you must go.
Pack your bags.
And go.
I am not saying this because I am Canadian and the Horseshoe {Niagara} Falls reside in my province.
I am saying this because it is a sight that you will probably never see anywhere else.
And us Canadians enjoy your tourism money.
Lots of it.

The brats, my Mama and I took a mini road trip to explore the Falls during the summer. Believe it or not, we usually go in the winter to stay at Great Wolf Lodge and it is just too friggin cold to even get out of our vehicle to see the Falls.
We are wimps.

I highly recommend going in the summer.
And spring.
And fall.
And even winter if you don't mind your boogers freezing in 2.2 seconds.

Just bring lots and lots of cash because there is so much to do.
We saw monks. {I think}
A large group of nuns.
Many groups of Amish/Mennonite families.
And even many men walking around shirtless.
Princess was fascinated and made sure to yell out "That man is showing his big belly!" many, many times.
Everyone loves Niagara Falls.

In the short 36 hours we were there, we managed to squeeze in many activities that I will stretch out into a few posts because I need blog material.
Don't judge.
Just enjoy.
And tell the peeps in Niagara Falls that it was my blog that convinced you to go.
{I need discounts, next time.}
The bridge to the USA.

Horseshoe Falls. Also known as the Canadian Falls.

There is nothing better than a rainbow, is there?
OK. There is.
Rainbows and unicorns in the same picture would be fanfrickintabulous!

The top of the Falls. If you end up here in a boat, say your prayers.

True story.
One of these children said that seeing the Falls was the most amazing thing he has ever seen.

Which made the insane amount of $$$$ we spent totally worth it.

Your pictures are absolutely beautiful! WOW!

Kate said...

I'm actually be visiting on the American side in a couple days while were back home to see family, can't believe this will be my first time on the Maid of the Mist and I also think everyone needs to come here at least once.

Nancy said...

Oh I am INSANELY jealous!!!! I'd so love to visit there, but I'm way over here on the other side of the continent and chances are slim to none. Looks like a WONDERFUL trip!

Wow! Those pictures are amazing. If I had any money at all, I'd come up and give Canada my tourist dollars.

Beautiful pictures! I actually will be spending some money in Canada soon; not near Niagra Falls however. Our best friends live in Thunder Bay, and we'll be going for a visit in a few days. We were also there in March and May this year.

I wanna take my kids to the Falls but we would need passports... you know to see the Canadian side. Talk about expensive.
