Niagara Falls- A LifeTime Experience

Think Big !

This long weekend (2011,sept2-5) made a life long memory to cherish.  We went to visit Niagara falls, Buffalo, New york .  It was almost  901 miles from Rochester, Minnesota. We rented a car and  started from home on friday evening. After a long drive and one night stay in   Hammond,Indiana and another longer and eventful drive on next day we reached Niagara  on saturday. The cloudy weather and scattered rain  fall could not make the 7 musketeers feeling blue.

Me, my husband, our two kids, and three friends – no doubt we made a perfect group. And I must admit that my kids (3.5 years ) are excellent traveler.  The main attraction points are all located side by side in the Niagara State Park.  There is sufficient parking spaces (paid) for cars. State park offers their own trolly service. We took several rides to avoid lots of walking. The main attraction is’ Maid of the Mist’.  This is a cruise tour that will take you near the falls.  And you will get soaked all over.

Other attraction points are cave of the wind,goat island, 3 sisters island, terrapin point etc.  Niagara (means thundering water ) is so huge and vast that I can not even describe my feelings in words. This is something you have to see if you want to get the true feeling of its beauty.Somehow I felt that even my senses are not able to behold its beauty and  vastness. This amazing creation of nature will compel you to feel  respect towards mother nature.  Standing in front of Niagara I just could thought that how small we are before this universe.

Every night Niagara falls are illuminated with lights and there is a fireworks show in every month.  For detail information you can visit here .
