As this was such a popular tourist location we firstly wanted to head to the Maid of the Mist. We bought our tickets, picked up our souvenir ponchos and climbed onboard. We choose to stand right at the front at the bow of the boat and we got underway. The falls were spectacular and being so close to them was immense. We headed into the mist of the Horseshoe Falls and we got soaked, but our ponchos saved us!
After this we wandered back down to the water front to get more views of the beautiful falls. We then found a quiet spot in the neighbouring park to sit and relax and enjoy the views. After we were nice and relaxed we continued to walk up to have a closer look at the Horseshoe Falls. These were amazing and as the mist found its way up to the sidewalk the ponchos were needed once again as it was like being in heavy rain.
As the sun was setting we walked back down to the waterfront as we had been informed that the falls were illuminated at night. This was indeed true and it was an amazing sight! At 10pm we had taken our spots ready for the fireworks. As these were set off directly above falls, the views were truly outstanding.
