Niagara Falls: A Tale Of Two Trips

P9307683_editedPretty, isn’t it? I took this picture of Niagara Falls years ago. I was there with my husband at the time and we had a lovely long weekend being tourists in a very touristy town. We went home and split up three months later.

Fast forward a little more than a decade. I went back to Niagara Falls with a guy I had been dating for several years and expected to someday marry. We had a fantastic visit, went home and three months later  – we split up.

Seriously, friends, you can’t make this stuff up.

I’m not a superstitious person but I have to say – if I ever find someone to love again, I’m not going with them to Niagara Falls. I’m getting too old to keep losing mates.

However, if you’re looking for a fun little long weekend, Niagara is a great place to be. Just remember, if you wish to visit the Canada side (which is the best, you have to do it) you’ll need a passport. Your best bet is to actually stay on the Canada side. There’s more to do and great hotel rates. The last time, I stayed in a room with a falls view and it was a sight to behold, especially at night when the falls are lit up.

I have no idea why I felt compelled to tell you this story but maybe you’ll find it interesting. I’m sure it won’t happen to you especially considering that Niagara has long been a destination for honeymoons and lovers’ getaways. So, go. Have fun. Take pictures and let me know how it all works out for you!
