Maid of the Mist

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Virago Vagabond on June 19, 2005

Looking at Niagara Falls is a joy from any view, but getting up close and personal with a sheet of white mist is like nothing else. Along with a boatful of other tourists decked out in thin blue ponchos, you can get taste the falls and get soaked in style. The boat ride takes you to both falls and gets you so close that you can't see anything but mist for a minute.

Bring a camera that can get wet, because the viewpoint is one you can only get from the boat - well, until you can't see anything, and then you can get that by sticking your face into a white sheet.

It costs about C$15, but it's worth it. If you've never visited the falls or you have but haven't gotten on the Maid of the Mist, you don't want to miss THIS boat! And if you have a sweetheart, you can fall in love at the falls. My parents had their honeymoon there.
