Oh Canada!: Part 3 >>> Niagara Falls

During our final day in Canada, we visited Niagara Falls, which is like the Orlando of Canada.. there's just so much to see and do in that town, aside from the awesome Niagara Falls, of course...
We were able to visit several museums and attractions in Niagara Falls, including the Louis Tussaud's wax museum, the Ripley's Believe it or Not and a few others.. it was so much fun..


...after a few fun attractions, we walked down to the falls..and let me just say "Oh my gosh!" what an amazing place...Last time I visited Niagara Falls (the only time) was in 1995 and 17 years later, the place is just as breathtaking...what a great feeling to stand in front of such a beauty of nature...beautiful sight!


..here's a picture of my friend and "tour guide", who sure knows how to show a guest a good time (thanks, Jen)


...Olivia and I went on the "Maid of the Mist", which is probably one of the most amazing things I've ever done.. It was so great to get so close to the waterfalls and feel the mist and sound of the water.. on top of that, there was an amazing rainbow that sure took my breath away....and we got soaked! (Olivia's favorite part of all)


Here's a short clip of our "Maid of the Mist" ride...SO MUCH FUN!

..after our fun (and wet) boat ride... we went on the Niagara SkyWheel, a huge ferris wheel in the middle of Niagara Falls... we had a great view of the falls from up top and the kids had a blast going around (5 whole times).. such a great experience...


Niagara Falls was just amazing! The town is so full of life and entertainment.. It is such a great place for families and tourists of all ages..
Oh, and we happened to be there the day Nik Wallenda walked across the falls..how cool is that?
Our trip to Canada was such a blast and I can't wait to go back with the whole family..
Thank you, Canada.. for an amazing time!..and thank you to the Grant family for spending time with us and showing us what Canada is all about!
