My Choice for the Best of the USA Blog Hop in August….

Niagara Falls, New York!!!

Best of the USA Niagara Falls

My husband and I have visited Niagara Falls several times. When our oldest child was less than a year old, we hopped in the vehicle one nice weekend with no particular destination in mind. We eventually stopped in Washington D.C. before taking a very round about drive to the American/Canadian border to view the wonder of the falls.

We were so disappointed on that trip. The weather, that was gorgeous when our journey began,  had taken a turn for the worst.  It was freezing and though we could hear the roar of the rushing water, we could not get a glimpse of the falls through the thick fog that filled the air.

Several months later, we planned a return visit. My son doesn’t remember that trip, but my husband and I were impressed. When my husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary, we decided to drive back to Niagara Falls to celebrate with a room at Embassy Suites overlooking the falls, this time on the Canadian side. I think the weekend would have been very enjoyable had I remembered to pack our birth certificates and the border agent would have been a wee bit nicer.

Last fall, we finally decided to travel back to Niagara Falls as a family so the kids could all experience the power and beauty of this natural wonder. You can learn more about our experience in these posts:

Love Niagara Falls! I grew up in NY so have visited a few times - our favorite is the boat ride :) The kids were never old enough to hike so we may try that on our next trip to see family in the area. Great pic for August!

My husband and I spent the weekend in Niagara Falls about 6 years ago and had a great time. One of our favorite parts was hiking the trails at the nearby park.

We've hiked the trails too and really enjoyed it. I wanted to do some hiking on our last trip, but I was vetoed. We are planning to take another trip soon. Since we now have passports, my kids want to visit the Canadian side to see if they missed out on anything. :) Protection Status
