Niagara Falls, NY and Ontario 2022

Niagara Falls is truly spectacular. We have seen fabulous waterfalls all over the world and, so far, nothing has come close except for Iguazu Falls in South America. It is twice as wide but has less total water flow.

To do it right, we viewed the falls from the land, both at river’s edge and from observation points, from the water, and from the sky.

These are the helicopter views.


We walked along the raging river with 60 MPH current.


Then the highlight was the up close and personal boat ride on the Maid of the Mist ship where you get so close that they provide ponchos for everybody.

It was a bit too fun (and wet) for me.

Even after leaving the boat, we were at an observation level that was spectacular. We will never forget this day.

Interesting factoid – 20% of the entire world’s fresh water supply flows from Niagara into the four lakes at the head of the Great Lakes system.
