Niagara Falls is a fun-filled family vacation spot and only an hour's drive from our home but for some reason we haven't been there for several years. Emma has no recollection of having seen the Falls and she has never been on The Maid of the Mist boat tour so we decided this past long weekend to take a day trip to Niagara Falls. We got a bit of a late start and had to detour because of a highway closure so it was late morning before we arrived and parked. It was a beautiful sunny day and the views of the Falls were spectacular as we walked the length of the Falls area to get to the loading docks for The Maid of the Mist. It was brutally hot so the spray coming off the Falls was actually quite refreshing.
