We drove the rental car to visit Niagara Falls, NY and then went to the Erie Canal where we met with some other Loopers for docktails before heading back to the boat. We stopped by Buffalo, NY for dinner at the Hofbrauhaus House that had a lively band.
We got to visit Niagara Falls twice — once with Shelley and another time just Larry and Mary.
Niagara Falls was beautiful from the American Side! Lots of interesting facts about the falls…
Can’t even imagine what it would be like to go over the falls — but there are people who have done it! Some intentionally and others by accident! What a drop that would be!!
The falls bridge over with ice in the winter but since 1912, visitors can no longer walk on the Ice Bridge.
Here’s a picture of an ice boom — used to promote ice formation in an arch to reduce the flow of ice into the Niagara River.
Niagara Falls was a beautiful site. American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are both in the US. The Canadian Horseshoe Falls straddles the border of the US and Canada and is the largest of the three falls. The islands that separate the 3 sets of falls are Luna Island and Goat Island. We got to walk over to Luna Island and Goat Island to see the more closely the Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls.
