Niagara Falls

On the way back from Boston we stopped at Niagara Falls. The first picture is of the kids playing in the snow outside the hotel before we went to the falls. We stayed on the Ontario, Canada side since we heard that the view was best from there and that there was more to do and see there. Our hotel was really nice. The hotel had an indoor pool (in which we did not swim since we didn't bring suits) and each room had a fireplace.

While at the falls we spent $40 to take an elevator to the bottom of the horseshoe falls called "Journey Behind the Falls." Unfortunately, since it was winter, the Maid of the Mist was not operating.

After visiting the falls, we drove through town to the outlet mall. I thought that the attraction to the towns was the falls but the town in Ontario looked like Las Vegas complete with casinos, Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Cafe, IMAX, Cirque, Ripley's Believe it or Not, magic shows, arcades, haunted houses, wax museums, and an aquatic theme park. It was insane.

Anyway, here are some pictures for your enjoyment.
