Niagara Falls Adventure:)

     We were planning to spend our 3rd wedding anniversary in Virginia but since we had an early trip there last July, the excitement of going back this time was not as intense anymore, besides, Ontario Canada is a way nearer than Virginia but we are definitely going back there maybe next summer to taste the beautiful Atlantic ocean at the waterfront of Virginia Beach and to eat yummy fatty crabs again and so we planned a Niagara Falls trip last Labor day weekend and I got so excited about it that i forgot several things that i needed to bring, like the sweeper for cleaning the tent, our vitamins, my extra comfy shoes, and some others. Anyway, our trip turned out great, as we expected It took about about 4 and half hrs drive going to our prospected campsite at Rock Point of Ontario Parks but it was already fully booked, and we proceeded to Long Beach Conservation Area and thank God, there were lots of vacant campgrounds and we were able to set up the tent before sunset

    Niagara Falls was 40 mins drive from our campsite and we started the adventure at the Victoria Park, where we could view the beauty and wonders of the Niagara FallsIt was truly magnificent and amazingly beautifulwith the rainbow flashing, what a wonderful scenery! and we made sure not to miss the beauty of Niagara at night or the illumination that shows ever changing colors of the fallsof course, with the magic of the spotlights We saw flashing of cameras from people taking pics at the other side of the falls which is in Buffalo, New YorkWe also had some spray of water during the day while viewing the falls and lot more water spray at night like we were walking in the rain. We did not see that coming!It was already midnight when we just walked all the way from Clifton Hill to Table Rock because we parked our car there and as we were passing by the falls, surprisingly, there were nobody else walking that time and there came the big shower from the fallsi told hubby that, that was a lot of blessings from above what a one unforgettable experience

We went inside the Table Rock to explore the Welcome Center there and got some souvenir stuff. I thought hubby would just get a ticket for the Maid of the Mist boat ride but he bought the 4 top Adventures package such as, the Maid of The Mist, Journey Behind The Falls, Whitewater Walk and Niagara's Fury

 

First Stop is the Niagara's Fury. It was cool to travel back in time 10,000 yrs to experience the Creation of the falls, and witness the power and beauty of nature. We were inside the dark room with big screens of the water allover, as if we were riding a boat and sometimes we experienced total darkness, thunders and rains. There were moments that i felt that i was actually therethat was really cooland some some kids were screaming and cryingby the way, we were not allowed to use cameras inside, so these were just the few we taken outside the dark room

 

Second Stop is the Journey Behind The Falls we took the journey below and behind the heart of Niagara and stood right in the mist and spray, the sound was like thunder, i thought it would be chilly since it started to get dark, but not at all, although we were soaking wet up close and personal with the falls was an awe-inspiring sight!

 

Maid Of The Mist here we come! The boat took us to just a few feet away from the bottom of the falls. Water rushes all around as we "soak" in the excitement of this thrill of a life-time! what would you expect when water and wind combines, it was like going out of the house in the middle of the Typhoon signal no. 3 in the Phils.I noticed, we were the only one using the camera when the "hurricane" blowed ushaving a waterproof case for a camera is really a cool idea

Unfortunately we were not able to make it to the Whitewater Walk We headed right after we were done with the Maid Of The Mist and we were just surprised when we found out that it was closed and it was only 5:30pm anyway, we had enough and we surely had the thrill of a lifetime, an ultimate and authentic falls experience with those 3 Falls adventure, we could not ask anything more

More pics to share taken from our campsitewe thought of swimming at the lake before heading again to Niagara

and strolled at the busy downtown of Clifton Hill, with Wax Museums, Theaters, Fun House, Sky Wheel and a lot more attractions. We just dined out for a couple of nights and Niagara is definitely not a cheap place

   Niagara Falls is indeed the world's famous falls because there were lots of people and tourists from all walks of life, of different races and nationalities. Who says that we have global economic crisis?In fact i also saw several Filipino families and friends strolling around. I did not get to meet them but i just heard them speaking Tagalog 

  We also hopped in at the Aerocar station while waiting for the People Mover bus (2 day free ride included when you get the 4 top adventure pass). Niagara Parks has a lot more to offer and explore, such as the Marineland, Butterfly conservatory, Floral Clock and many more tourists attractions but we just did not have enough time

   We headed back home Monday and i noticed we spent more hrs. coming back even though we also stopped to have dinner but i think it's because we waited almost an hour from the Blue Water Bridge to the Canada-Michigan,US Border, with long lines of cars and trucks, but by the time it was our turn, it was just so quick, the Custom officer just had a quick check on our passports and my green card, and asked what we did in Canada

   Well, hubby and I surely had a great wedding anniversary treat that we will never forget

   Below are the videos to share
