Glacier National Park 2013 travel blog

Finally made it to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

Wow, the view from this side is amazing!

Joshua concerned about a falling building.

We all survived this 4D experience.

Enjoying the view from the Skylon Observation Deck

Joshua & Karissa enjoying the view too.

We woke to a wet, chilly morning. After last night's fiasco in trying to get over the bridge into Canada, we decided to meet at 9:00, to try to get across before the crowds, which is exactly what we did. We flew over the Rainbow Bridge and through the border without one delay. This was the first time the Amatos had ever been to Canada and Karissa's first time out of the United States. We did a quick drive to see the falls, WOW! the view really is much better from the Canadian side and the kids were pretty excited to see all the amusements offered here too. Since we were so early, we found parking right in the heart of all the fun activities. We spent the next three hours touring Ripley's 4D movie experience, haunted houses, The Guinesses Book of World Records museum, and time at the arcades. The sun burst through and it got pretty hot as we walked through the gardens towards the Skylon Tower. We took the elevator up 532 feet to the Summit Deck and experienced the falls in a panoramic fashion. We made our way back to our vehicles and anticipating a long wait to get back into the US we grabbed some pizza for lunch. Much to our pleasant surprise, we crossed over the bridge and through the border in less than 5 minutes, go figure! However, the line going into Canada at 2:30, was already very long before the bridge. I guess earlier is better. We all headed back to the campground for a swim, and then enjoyed a nice burger dinner at the Amato's camping lodge. As the sun set we said our goodbyes. Tomorrow the Amatos are heading up to Canada to visit the Toronto Zoo and we are heading east to Vermont. It was a perfect evening to end our memorable family vacation with Jess, Chris, Joshua and Karissa.
