I took a week to travel to the beautiful Niagara Falls in New York/Canada and what did I see? Just that, the beautiful rushing of water and creating a wonderful site. It was a trip I’ll never forget, and I recommend everyone at least once to take time to go out there. When I saw the Falls I saw more than just water falling off a cliff, I saw a nature made landmark that brings people together.
While I was camping in New York my boyfriend and I decided we would just walk over into Canada over the Rainbow Bridge. As I walked over the bridge I soon noticed the better view of the Falls was on the Canadian side rather than the American side.Despite our poor view I noticed a number of Canadians going the opposite way, they were going to America to see the Falls. I thought that was rather odd because clearly the better view was in Canada.
My thoughts were that this landmark was a great way to intertwine people and to appreciate a great view. The excitement of the Falls, the rush of the water, the coolness from the mist, everything had something to bring to the table.
The first thing I noticed was how beautiful the Falls were. I could not believe people would go over the Falls for entertainment in barrels. It looked so dangerous, so daring, I was in disbelief. This sight was so beautiful just standing on the bridge had one of the best views. You could see everything from the bridge. You could see the mist at the bottom when the rushing water hit the rocks. You could feel the coldness of the water from standing anywhere near the fall area. Everything there was memorable in its own special way.
The second thing I noticed was how notoriously polite the Canadians were. A girl on the bus was happy to give us directions because we were clearly new at traveling on the other side. I find that where I live, If i tried that on a bus around me people would just shake me off and I would have to figure it out for myself.
I just loved how friendly they all were here, especially on all the Niagara Falls sites we saw. While there we made sure we took the boat ride, went behind the Falls, saw a movie on how the Falls were made and even took a walk along the white waters.
That week we learned so many things about the Falls, the culture around the Falls, and especially on how the Falls brings people together. The sight alone especially at night when they illuminate the Falls is a sight to always remember. If you wanted a destination, you should visit Niagara, it is a memory you’ll always remember.
