Niagara Falls

DSC02941

Took the time to go to Niagara Falls over the weekend, though the main purpose of the trip there wasn’t to see the falls itself. ^^;;

Located 120km from Toronto, Niagara Falls is one of the seven wonders of Canada that mesmerizes millions of visitors each year.

The Falls is highly recommended if you’re into photography and/or sight-seeing.

Panoramic View

On the left is the Bridal Veil Falls, and on the right is the Horseshoe Falls – so named for its horseshoe shape.  You can click on the picture for full-size.

The Falls is a different spectacle at night with light shows and fireworks.  I didn’t stick around til sunset so I missed the light show, but I live a hours drive away from The Falls so it’s quite easy for me to go back. ^^

The “Canadian view” of the falls is much better than those south of the border.  Remember to bring your passport if you’re coming from stateside.  If you’re wondering what that green building is, it’s an observation deck so Americans can have a “better view” of The Falls.  :P

If you want a “CLOSER LOOK” of the falls, you can go on one of these ferries that will take you up close and personal for a measely $15 Cdn per person.

The Rainbow bridge crossing.  Me likes the Japanese Rainbow bridge more.

Poor soul had bird poop on his head.  Hope it gets cleaned up since it is a memorial for those who fought in the World Wars.

Skylon Tower, I’ve never been up there before…too touristy for me. ^^;;;

An entire tourism district born around The Falls.  There weren’t as many attractions ten years back.

I was hoping they served some Coke flavoured ice cream…but they didn’t have it.

FIVE POUNDS OF HERSHY GOODNESS!!!  Exclusive to The Falls…wondering how big it is?

‘Tis five pound chocolate bar was the purpose of the trip.  It makes one fine souvenir.  ^^

Fist sized Reese puffs anyone?  Sorry for the bad picture…

Some “traditional” souvenirs.  I haven’t had much maple syrup lately, but it does taste better than your regular syrup.

Two guys having loads of fun making chocolates.  I didn’t want to leave the store because it smelled so good in there. ^^;;

‘Tis the result of their hard work.

Had some Oreo Cookie ice cream before we left.

One of the few occasions where the actual product looks similar to the product picture.

    Wow, the waterfall looks simply breathtaking! I do hope I get to visit the fall at least once in my lifetime.

    On the other hand, I thought I almost saw your face from the glass reflection in one of your photos… :-p

      Did you? I made sure most of the pictures were taken at an angle so my reflection wouldn’t show up…I do see a reflection of my camera on the Reese photo. ^^;

      There’s a lot of nature reserves in Canada that’s simply amazing. I haven’t been to any of them that’s outside of my province, I might make a point of it and take a road trip in the future.

    5lb hershey’s bar looks so awesome! not my favorite brand of chocolate but 5lbs is epic and i want one ^^

    someday i need to travel somewhere besides japan ^^; i could totally just sit and watch/listen to the falls for hours…

      I wonder if they got other exclusives in other tourist destinations. Japan is nice, but it’s always good to see different places. :D

    I drove up to Toronto once, but didn’t stop by the fall. May be once of these days I would do that.

      If you’re crossing the border via Buffalo then you might as well drop by the Falls since it’s near the border crossing.

    The falls looks gorgeous. And wow I want that 5 pound hershey bar. ^_^

    Nuts I didn’t go to the Falls when I was in the east a few years ago… then again it was in February. Very nice views indeed. I just watched Superman II again recently XD

    Ew, Hershey’s? Not my favourite brand of choco >_< I only like Hershey if it's mixed with nuts or something. Gimme 5 kg Cadbury choco any day!

      The Falls look pretty nice when it freezes in winter too, you’ll see massive chunks of ice forming at the bottom. They sold some massive Toblerone at Christmas too…but that went for some $80 each. ^^;;
