This was our fourth visit to Niagara Falls, and each visit is special and different in its own way. This visit was our longest in the park to date! We explored areas we honestly didn’t know existed. Why did we just now discover Terrapin Point?! It is spectacular!
We also visited The Three Sisters islands for the first time. We were able to spend an entire day and stay into the night. We had our second Maid of The Mist boat tour on this trip, and it was SO much fun! Honestly, I can’t believe they can take a boat filled with people SO close to the falls! If you have never done it, put it on your to-do list! It is unlike anything else you will ever do.
We started the day with a visit to Erie’s (PA) Bicentennial Tower before heading out to Niagara. We stopped along the Lake Erie coastline in NY briefly at the Barcelona Lighthouse. This nearly 200-year-old structure is undergoing some renovation work to restore the original wooden staircase.
The rain held off until after the light show. We saw the light show from the Canada side a few years ago, and this time saw it from the US side. Both ways are special and beautiful in their own way.
Our Monday takes us to Watkins Glen, NY - the heart of the Fingerlake Region.
