We visited Niagara Falls over Memorial Day Weekend. To our surprise, it wasn't very crowded. The drive from NYC was about 7 hours but it was very scenic. I was really impressed by the Falls! It's beautiful, huge, and powerful! Very majestic. Luck was on our side, because when we first saw the waterfalls there was a perfect rainbow!
One of the touristy things we did was ride the Hornblower. You can also do a short tour of walking through some tunnels behind the Falls. Be prepared to get soaked!
Because it was a holiday weekend, we got to see a firework show. Overall, our weekend getaway to Niagara Falls was a success and was one more place checked off our bucket list.
