BUCKET LIST: Niagara Falls ☑️ I love making my wife’s dreams come true. The falls have been something she has wanted to see for a long time. I’m glad we were able to enjoy the adventure together.
We crossed the border to Canada 🇨🇦
After checking into our B&B we hit the town to see the falls...
First we grabbed some grub at Hard Rock, Ontario!
Even after driving 8hrs, we couldn’t miss the lights & fireworks from the Canadian side
Our early morning starts Down
Down to the river: White Water Walk Class 6 rapids
Next stop: Whirlpool Aero Car
Suspended 200ft over the rapids, 1770ft between two Canadian points. Because of the 90° bend in the river, you cross the Canadian/American border 4x on a round trip.
The Niagara flows into the gorge at 22mph creating a whirlpool and turns counterclockwise.
Flow reverses clockwise when water is diverted to the hydroelectric power plant
Next off to the Butterfly 🦋 Conservatory & Botanical Gardens 🌸
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”
These falls a much smaller than our next stop
Who’s ready to get a little wet?
The American Falls
Only 10% if the Niagara flows through this side yet that is still 75,000 gallons a second. 176ft high from the top to the river. From the rocks it’s between 70-110ft.
675,000 gallons of water flow over and fall 188ft ever second. The pool is over 100ft deep. Can you image what is sitting at the bottom. An estimated 5,000 people have died going over the falls.

Celebrating 158 years of lights on the falls.
