Summer may be over but since the weather is still beautiful I’ve decided to make the most of it. Although I’ve vacationed around the world and have had many wonderful adventures one of my favorite places to visit is Niagara Falls. Living in Toronto means that one of the most beautiful natural wonders on the planet is just a drive away and this magnificent attraction is one that millions of people around the globe travel from far and wide to marvel at.
There is a lot to see and do when you visit the Niagara region, you can munch on sweet treats at the Fudge Factory, dine at one of the many fabulous restaurants, golf, picnic, tour the wine vineyards, shop and much more but the main reason people visit is to stand at the top of the falls, feel the cool mist on their faces and make lasting memories. If you want an even closer view the best and most popular way to experience this powerful force of nature is by boarding a Hornblower Cruise and sailing head first into the excitement! The boats float so close it makes you feel like you can reach out and touch the cascading water and the view is breathtaking!
To celebrate our 6 year anniversary my husband and I decided to do something exhilarating, and a bit unconventional. After a delicious lunch we decided to take a Hornblower Cruise and enjoy a romantic moment under the thundering falls! The experience sums up our relationship perfectly- thrilling, exciting and fun!
It is no surprise that this tour is rated the number one attraction and it is a fabulous adventure for families, couples and people of all ages! The large viewing decks can accommodate the entire crowd to ensure that everyone has a great vantage point and whether you want to get soaked and feel the wind on your face or remain dry behind the viewing glass there is a perfect spot to see the action! You also receive a pink poncho to protect your clothes from getting wet and after the cruise you can stop by the snack bar or gift shop for souvenirs!
The day cruises leave every 15-20 minutes with the option of a guided historical tour so you can always fit it into your schedule. The evening cruises are longer so you have time to enjoy the falls illumination and fireworks display.
If you plan to visit Niagara Falls a Hornblower Cruise is definitely a once in a lifetime experience you will never forget! For more information you can visit the website by clicking HERE.
