Sep 16, 2017 - Niagara Falls

We have stayed in the Niagara Falls area four nights. Just rested the first night. The second day we took a Grey Line Tour of the Canadian side of the falls. This included a close up of he Horseshoe Falls and a trip behind them. Not much to see, just a sheet of water going by at 80 mph. However you could feel and hear the power. Later we visited Whirlpool Rapids and learned a lot about the power generation facilities on both sides. We ended the day with a trip to the top of the Skylon Tower (about 550') to view the colored lights on the...

Aug 26, 2017 - Made it to Niagara Falls!!!!

Made it to Niagara Falls New York. First time here for Patti, Kevin has been here before. We stayed a little bit north of town at Niagara Falls North KOA. It was worth staying there to be away from the noise and traffic. We set up camp and headed to the falls to see them at night. We walked across the Rainbow bridge to the Canada side of the falls. It was worth the walk, they light them up and the best view is from Canada. We walked back after dark and waited in line to go through Immigration. We got to use our renewed Passports for the...

Aug 1, 2017 - Our Summer Vacation in the East

Pennsylvania and New York State We were scheduled to meet friends Carson and Diane at Gettysburg. They were bringing their motorcoach from North Carolina, and we planned to spend a few weeks touring through Pennsylvania and New York State in concert with them. We left Indianapolis, and as we entered The Keystone State, we were closing in on an attraction that has been on our list for a long time. Tucked away in the sleepy forests of southwestern Pennsylvania sits one of the world’s most famous buildings: Frank Lloyd Wright’s...

Jun 20, 2017 - Niagara Falls, NY.

We drove I90 toll road all the way here from Ashtabula Ohio. It's the fastest route with not much to see. We did this drive about 20-25 years ago and drove through Erie PA. Erie was pretty abandoned at that time. We spent 4 days at Niagara Falls. It was the highlight of the trip for Ava. Again we planned our activities around rain. Being at the falls the rain didn't matter. We were wet one way or the other. Papa took Ava through the Cave of the Winds. It's a natural cave behind Bridal Veil Falls. It is some 130 feet high. You follow...

Hi all, DESPITE EDITING SOME OF THE PHOTOS AND CAPTIONS ARE NOT SHOWING CORRECTLY, WE APOLOGISE BUT ITS THE PROGRAM.........

May 17, 2017 - Niagara Falls and back to New York

Our accommodation in Niagara was very eclectic. It's a shop that has been converted to accommodation. Adam, our host, and his girlfriend run an artist business of some kind and live in the property as well. They have created 2 rooms to use as b and bs. It's certainly a bit different and our quarters consist of a sitting room downstairs and a loft bed. Poor Pete, stairs are not his favourite thing and he had to climb 12 or so to get into bed. Apart from that, it was very cosy although when we arrived, it was as though we were in a black...

May 16, 2017 - New York to Niagara Falls

What a fun day we've had today. The early start wasn't so much fun as we had to be up by 3:30 to catch our bus to Niagrara Falls at 5:15. We had to be at 157th St to catch our subway train to 42nd St at 4:00am and the train arrived as we did. It didn't do Pete's stress levels any good. And then, the train stopped a few times due to construction in the line. And then, when we arrived at the Port Authority Temrinal, the gates were locked from the train station to the bus station. We had to take a detour out to the street. And then, we...

Sep 29, 2016 - Falling for Niagara Falls

After a fabulous weeklong stay in Pennsylvania visiting the DeNoi family we ventured north to Grand Island, New York for our visit to another of those areas that we have been looking forward to seeing in person, Niagara Falls. Thanks to our aunt and uncle, Charlene and Dennis, we didn’t have to do any research on where to stay. Additionally, they gave us some pointers on how best to see the Falls. Neither Dennis or I have ever been to Canada so we chose the Shared Wonder Tour, a package designed to see and experience the most popular sights...

Sep 5, 2016 - Niagara Falls, NY

Sept 5 & 6 – N Tonawanda, New York; AA Royal Motel Hotel and Campground Here at the AA Royal Motel Hotel and Campground, we are 11 miles from Niagara Falls and the border crossing to Ontario, Canada. Yesterday we quickly set up after arrival and drove to the American side of the falls. This area is not easy to navigate; streets go every which way and with some major roads running only one way. Many streets and have two names, which would be OK if the signs had both names (they do not). We saw the mist rising from the falls several blocks...

Aug 25, 2016 - Niagara Falls NY

August 23 Moved again, this time to Niagara Falls. The KOA RV park we are staying in is really nice, just a few miles from the falls. We will be here for five nights. August 24 Went on a tour of the American side of the falls today. It included the Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, and several stops at overlooks along the Niagara River Gorge. It was a little tough to take photos on the boat with the spray from the falls. I had to quickly get the camera framed before the spray got too much on the front of the lens. Poor Cody had to stay...

Aug 8, 2016 - Day 36/Day 37

Day 36 Today we drove over to the American side to take a ride on the Maid of the Mist. The wait to get on the boat was not bad and we managed to get a spot on the railing to be able to take it all in, including lots of water. The boat went past the American fall and then right into the middle of the Canadian Falls(Horseshoe Falls). The amount water that was coming over the top was unbelievable, we all got pretty wet, definitely an immense amount of power. Sean and I were going to do the Cave of the Winds tour, which allows you to walk...
