2016/08/21 A few hours at Niagara Falls
π 2016-08-21 01:01 in Canada, Trips

Since we were going to Torronto, I figured we'd arrive a bit early the first day and go to Niagara Falls. Unfortunately, it started with Budget (the only place that had cars left) sucking ass, and taking 30mn to get us a car despite being registered for quick pass, and then having to return the car and exchange it bcause it had a check engine light on (54mn wasted total). Next, the drivers around Torronto are total idiots, who caused multiple accidents on the road, and made the trip a lot longer than it should ahve been:

this was only one out of 3 accidents on the road

We finally arrived in the area around 18:00, quite late :( but thankfully sunset wasn't very early either, so we still had a bit of time, although it was rushed. We started with a nice butterfly sanctuary, and went by a cable car that goes over a whirlpool (but was closed due to wind):

Next, we took an elevator down to a white river walk:





Finally we got to the main part of town, albeit pretty close to sunset, and parking was a bit challenging:




the US side has a walk to see the water and falls from above

We then had a decent dinner at the visitor center complex, and came back for the night illuminations and fireworks:





We then had a longish drive back to Torronto, but thankfully the road was much more clear on the way back.
