My other purpose for travelling to the Niagara Falls area was to see the Niagara Falls themselves. The last time I saw them was before I was a freshman in high school which menas it was a number of decades ago.
As I said, I was not terribly impressed with the views from the American Side of the Falls. One of the reasons is because there is a huge green monstrosity that blocks one of the better views of the Horseshoe Falls from there. I could have paid 15 bucks to go inside but I didn't feel like it. If I had more time, I could have wandered around the city and park a little longer but I wanted to start heading back.
All in all, I was impressed with the Falls and want to go back in the near future. I would love to get shots when it is a little greener.
