Oh My God! You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hot dog real bad!🌭

Let’s hit the great outdoors and see what Mother Nature has to offer! Visiting the majestic Niagara Falls has always been a dream of mine, and what better way to celebrate the nations independence than to mark another location off my “Best Life” travel list.
My mom and I were super excited to see one natures wonders. We started our trip by flying into Buffalo, NY and taking a car across the border into Canada. We researched some of the must-see places in Niagara, and opted for a day tour with Zoom Tours to explore the city. The first stop was the Journey Behind the Falls, which is an up close and personal view inside of the roaring falls. The viewing portals give you access through the rocks under the falls and the observation deck is the perfect spot to feel the world’s fresh water crashing down in front of you.
Next up was the Hornblower Niagara Cruise Voyage to the Falls to experience the strength of the American Falls, Canadian Horseshoe Falls and the Great Gorge with a powerful mist sure to take your breath away. We learned about the history behind the natural and man made wonder, the super smart scientist who created the system for conducting electric hydro currents, and some daring individuals who took on the waters in a barrel.
After taking in all the excitement at the falls, it was time for lunch at the best view in the city, the Sheraton on the Falls. The buffet at Massimo’s Italian was very good, but the view from the thirteenth floor was absolutely spectacular.
The remainder of the tour included stops at the many scenic spots around Niagara, such as the Floral Clock, the Whirlpool Rapids, Cliffton Hill, and the Hydro Turbines. We were amazed by the immaculate landscaping and beauty of the city.
As the day came to a close, the final tour took us 775 feet high above the city in the Skylon Tower to experience the falls from a birds eye view. The Revolving Dining room inside the tower rotates 360 degrees to give diners a view of the entire city, and the fireworks show was the perfect ending to a patriotic Independence Day celebration.
Although it was a short trip, I know this is one place that I will always remember and cherish with my mom.
