May 30, 2014 - Niagara Falls, NY

Next stop was Niagara Falls, NY, another bucket list item. We took several tours - one of the US side and one of the Canadian side. The falls were absolutely amazing and all we could say is ‘WOW!” One tour was on a boat that takes you close to the falls – I found this as amazing as getting up close to the glacier in Alaska. We found it interesting that the New York side seem to be quite old and depressed while the Canadian side was newer, alive and booming. I wonder what this says?!? We also visited the Ansley Wilcox house where Teddy...

Dec 29, 2013 - Happy 50th birthday Micky!

Hi everyone We spent Micky's birthday at Niagara Falls and it was pretty special. We stayed at the Marriott Fallsview which is the closest hotel to the falls. Lashed out and got a two bedroom suite on the 20th floor and of course the view from the kids room (2 queens) was better than ours (king). Not sure why they would do it that way... The weather was great when we arrived, very cold but clear so we took a million photos. I know some of you have been here and it would be magnificent at any time of the year but winter time is just magical....

Sep 24, 2013 - Niagara Falls

After the Erie Canal Cruise, we drove up to Niagara Falls for the rest of the day. The falls were beautiful! It's difficult to capture the sense of the massive volume of water that flows down river and over the falls without seeing it in person. What a sight! We stayed in the area all afternoon and waited for the sun to set. At 8:30 p.m. a building on the Canada side of the river projected colored lights onto the falls. Very nice.

Sep 24, 2013 - Niagara Falls

(Sandi writing) We have awakened to clear, sunny skies, even though the temperature is about 55 degrees. We are going back to the falls this morning after checking out of our motel. I wanted everyone to know that we probably won't have internet access for a couple of days, so if you don't see a posting, don't worry, we are fine and are having fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sep 23, 2013 - Toledo, OH to Cleveland, OH and Niagara Falls, NY

(Sandi writing) We had a wonderful time at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. The Rolling Stones have a special exhibit through March 2014. We were lucky to find Angie's Soul Cafe near the museum where we had a great lunch! About 4 hours later, we arrived at Niagara Falls. We walked to the falls tonight to catch them lit, but our timing was off. So, no night pictures on this trip. We will go back in the morning and will surely share some pictures. By the way, I haven't figured out the correct use of the maps...it shows that we crossed...

Sep 17, 2013 - Day 10

Yesterday was cloudy, drippy, and chilly so we stayed "in" and spent the day reading and relaxing. Today was the exact opposite weather-wise: sunny and cloudless. We drove to the Canadian side to see the falls from there. The short route, the Rainbow Bridge, was closed for some sort of disaster drill so we took the long route and wound along the parkway and gorgeous houses that line the river on the Canadian side. Once we got to the falls, the wind was coming from the American side so we (and everybody else) got drenched walking through the...

Sep 15, 2013 - Day 8

We shuffled off to Buffalo this morning and actually ended up in Niagara Falls (OK, it's a suburb of Buffalo). Got situated in a nice KOA on Grand Island. Then we went off to the American side of Niagara Falls. It was a bit gray and cloudy so our pictures look a little gloomy but the falls are pretty spectacular. I'm told the Canadian side -- tomorrow's itinerary -- is even more amazing. We came back "home" and had pizza while we watched the Broncos beat the Giants. A great day all around.

Sep 5, 2013 - Niagara Falls, Ny 9-5 thru 9-7

9-5-2013 left Detroit Michigan, drove south to Toledo, Ohio and then east thru Pennsylvania and arrived in Niagara Falls, NY. 4 states in one day, our first and second toll roads ($26 total - so not used to paying to drive on a road, we are so fortunate in the NW). We have logged a total of 3552 miles and 12 states in 4 weeks. Niagara Falls is SPECTACULAR! We went to the Cave of the Winds - beneath the American Falls and up to Hurricane Deck. The rain ponchos and sandals they provide are not optional - we were surrounded by thundering...

Sep 3, 2013 - Day 2 at Niagara

We were glad we'd done the Maid of the Mist yesterday when we saw how cloudy this day was. After breakfast at the hotel, we headed over to the Canadian side to get the view from there. Driving across the Rainbow Bridge was a breeze on the way over, but wow! An hour later when we tried to head back it was unreal what a line-up it was to get back into the states. A trolley ride around the park was our next adventure. The $2 trolley includes some great narrative all about the Niagara Park. We got off at Goat Island, and walked down to Luna...

Sep 2, 2013 - Niagara Falls, New York

We arrived at our next important destination about noon - Niagara Falls, NY. I had been here twice before, but the last time was with 5 kids,so this trip was definitely going to be different than that one! The day had been very overcast with occasional showers, but soon as we got to the falls the sun came out! My top priority was to do the Maid of the Mist boat trip, so we headed straight there before the clouds could decide to return. What an adventure that was! We were at the very front of the boat and got soaked, but the view of the...

Aug 9, 2013 - Canadian Niagara Falls

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...

Aug 8, 2013 - Lake Ontario

We met up with Jess, Chris and the grandkids by 9:30, after a night of thunderstorms and rain. We headed over to view Niagara Falls, a first for Jess and Chris. It was a pretty cloudy, windy day, so the falls were misty, but the crowds were at a minimum, which was great for a tour on the Maid of the Mist. Joshua joined his parents on the ride. Karrisa chose to stay with us as she wasn't interested in getting wet. They had a great soaking ride. Then we all walked over to Goat Island, which was a nice change from last year, when we took a...
