Walking Along the Niagara Falls

a view of the Niagara Falls from the Canada Side One of the most remarkable aspects to Niagara Falls remains its accessibility. To simply walk along side the Niagara River and view the majestic waterfalls.  And view it for free. There is no long hike and it’s not in an exotic land (not for us Americans, although I do recommend crossing into Canada) either. It is right there for the public to appreciate.

This easy access certainly changed the landscape and the towns on both sides of the US-Canada border. Some changes for the better, others probably not. But regardless, access to experience, to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and feel of the powerful waterfalls is easily available. One afternoon, I took advantage of that access and strolled along the waterfalls.

Certainly travelers can seek adventure at Niagara Falls, but the ability to appreciate the waterfalls so close and so comfortable makes for a perfect way to spend any hour of the day or even night (At night Niagara Falls is illuminated).

Cheers to you Niagara Falls!

Plus, hey, it’s not a bad place to spend an afternoon listening to music with a beer in hand, who knows it can help with the romance at Niagara Falls too.

 Stay on the Canadian Side of Niagara Falls

Sure, many people debate which side is better (Canadian or US), or if they stack up against other famous falls, or are they overrated? But the truth is both sides are impressive and well, in Canada, you get to look at the United States, so that’s a better view right?

Stay adventurous, Craig

    Excellent photos, Craig. What kind of camera do you use? Now, I want to go back to Niagara Falls. There was still snow and ice when I visited some years ago.

      Actually I heard it froze over this winter… some beautiful ice images if you can brave the cold…

      My camera is entry level dSLR Cannon… but honestly, you can get quality images even with a current smartphone or iPhone 5.

      stay brave, Craig

        I like my smart phone as a camera, but I use a Canon Rebel and a Canon point and shoot. Now, I just need the vacation. :-)

        You are correct on the freezing over … it’s located about 45 minutes from our home. Here’s a link from one of Nation’s newspapers with photos. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/in-pictures-niagara-falls-freezing-over/article17198260/
