Monday dawned sunny, but windy. We enjoyed a nice breakfast in the concierge lounge (see Marriott Fallsview review) and headed to the Imax. We planned on catching the shuttle; however, we had just missed it and would have had to wait an hour for the next one (schedule had changed that day to winter times). It would have taken about 10 minutes to walk to the Imax if we had not taken a wrong turn. We enjoyed the movie with about 6 other tourists. From there we walked down Clifton Hill which must be wild in the summer. We enjoyed a
taste of fudge in the candy shop. Our next stop was the Maid of the Mist. We chose to stay on the lower level thinking we might stay drier. Those who went to the top got soaked. The views of the American Falls were awesome, but the Horseshoe Falls were covered in mist. The sound was incredible. Following the Maid of the Mist ride, we walked along the Niagara River
toward the Rock House and got close to the Horseshoe Falls. We took the Incline Railway up to our hotel.
Tuesday also dawned sunny and less windy. We stopped on the American side at Niagara Falls State Park which is America’s oldest State Park (est. 1885). We took the trolley ($2 for an all day pass) around the park, getting off when we wanted. The trolley takes you to Goat Island where you are able to get close to the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The sound of the falls was incredible here, too.
