I live quite close to Niagara Falls, and have been there numerous times. A friend of mine was coming out to visit, and since she had never been, I decided to take her down to the falls for a day. We arrived and we immediately headed over to do the Journey Behind the Falls. As I expected, she loved it. She’s a huge Facebook person, so not only did she get to actually see the falls from so many different angles, but she took what seemed like a million photos to post on Facebook.
After Journey Behind the Falls we headed over to the IMAX, for which I had previously purchased tickets. I’ve seen the IMAX before and always enjoyed it, so I had a pretty good feeling my friend would as well. Again, my expectations were correct as she loved it! It made me happy because not only did she get to enjoy seeing the falls on the IMAX technology, but she was able to learn some things about the falls as well. She was really excited by the Daredevil stories, so of course we had to visit the Daredevil Museum after the movie.
The Daredevil Museum is great because you get to learn more about the individual daredevil stories, and see the actual items they used to go over the falls. My friend took several pictures at the Daredevil Museum, which also went right on Facebook! After the Daredevil Museum we headed over to Clifton Hill. We had lunch, played games, and visited some of the different attractions. The Wax Museum was a big hit!
After spending some time exploring around Clifton Hill, we headed over to the Maid of the Mist, which has always been my favorite attraction at the falls, and I was looking forward to seeing her reaction to it. As usual, the Maid of the Mist was a blast! We both had an awesome time out on the water. After the Maid of the Mist it was starting to get dark, so we had dinner in town, caught the fireworks and headed back to my house.
The most memorable part of the day was really just spending a wonderful day at Niagara Falls with my friend – we both had a blast. Even though I’ve been to Niagara Falls so many times, this particular trip exceeded my expectations because it turned out to be a really fun day that my friend and I will remember for years to come.
