Visiting Niagara Falls should be on everyone’s bucket list! It’s a great location to visit two countries in one stop and explore one of America’s most gorgeous waterfalls. The parks themselves are free and you can gaze at one of nature’s wonders any time of the year! (Winter takes on a different ambiance).
Here are six tips that will help you make the most out of your own trip to Niagara Falls.
Day 2 started bright and early at 7 a.m. The six-hour road trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario, would involve a stop at the border in Port Huron, Michigan. You can never be sure how long a border-crossing will take, and I wanted to arrive in Niagara Falls around 2:00 p.m.
Michigan is a beautiful state. In traveling from one end to another along I-94, I saw miles of tall trees and small lakes without the dense urban jungle. Even when driving through the larger cities of Lansing and Flint, it was still a calm and peaceful drive. (It wasn’t the speedway, either).
One of the last true vacations that I’ve been on was to Toronto, Ontario, in September 2006. It was cold, raining, and slightly windy but was a new experience. I had briefly lived there in 1999 after college and I adored the city.
