I know we’re living in a pandemic and traveling for leisure is discouraged. But at some point, things will return to normal, including travel.
Anyway, this is just an ideal imaginary trip and what I would want to do while in Niagara Falls
I would either take Amtrak (if it goes anywhere near there) or fly, although the train is more favorable. There are fewer security rules and restrictions. I would take car services to get around or even walk.
I would also need a passport since much of the area, especially the exciting stuff, is in Canada. Why wouldn’t I drive, you may ask? It’s too far, several hours away from Long Island, NY.
Perhaps, a hotel or an Airbnb. Maybe even a lake house. Whatever I could afford and whatever my plans involved.
Things to Do
Maid of the Mists – hands down! This is a huge highlight of Niagara Falls. I’ve done it when I was little. When I went back at age 14, it was too cold for that boat ride.
Those Vegas-Like Rides and Videos: I did those when I was 14 and in Niagara Falls. The one I remember well was the SpongeBob ride. There were more, but I don’t recall them.
Amusement Parks: I went on a Ferris wheel in the town we stayed in, but I don’t recall the name of that park.
Marineland: An aquarium with certain animal interactions and other fun activities. I’ve never been there, but I have read about it.
It would probably depend on my mood. I could crave continental, casual, Asian, and so forth. I likely would not choose a fancy place as they can get crowded, expensive, and slow—unless I was with somebody and he or she chose it.
So, there you have it.
