What an amazing adventure, pictures here.
Me and my girlfriend were talking and I mentioned I have never been out of the country other than Mexico. I mentioned how I had a new passport with no stamps on it. She asked if I have ever been to Niagara Falls. "Uh nope, always wanted to go".
So we drove up to Canada oh and it was so much fun. The drive was great, I got another state under my belt. Buffalo is a very pretty city all the brickwork, it truly is amazing. I still like St. Louis more but that is another story.
I booked a hotel with a large bathtub (cause I love big bathtubs) which was at the Wyndham. Really nice hotel, the staff was great and the view was ok. It is a short walk to the falls and really good restaurants.
I missed my opportunity to go on a helicopter when I was in the Army (long story), so my girlfriend mentions that there is a nearby company that does this. She isn't the biggest fans of helos. The Niagara Helicopters had quiet aircraft and very fast. They are flying several all day so the wait time isn't that much. The views (look at my pinterest pics) are stunning. The pilot takes long banking turns so even my girlfriend had fun. You can purchase a photo at the end which of course we did.
We had lunch at Elements on the Falls which has a wonderful menu. My girlfriend and I tend to eat lighter meals and their menu had an assortment of light and great tasting foods. The view is magical. We had a table near the windows and the falls are a hundred feet away.
Canada was great. This trip made me want to see other parts of Canada like Toronto. From the Skylon tower you can see it
