Niagara Falls

This card came from my lovely swap buddie Marie and as always she included a special stamp, that happens to be one of my favorite stamps and a special postmark that has my birthday date!

In 2008 I went on a trip around Canada and Niagara falls were the last part of my tour, I took the Maid of the Mist boat, a helicopter ride over the falls, had lunch at Skylon tower, so many good memories are coming to my mind right now!

Niagara Falls, Ontario, along with with its sister city Niagara Falls, New York, is the self-proclaimed "Honeymoon Capital of the World." For hundreds of years the grandeur of the Falls of the Niagara River have attracted many to this destination.
Mainly a tourist destination, the main attraction has always been Niagara Falls, which brings hundreds of thousands of tourists to the city. Now tourism plays a major part in the economy of the region. Increasingly, visitors seeking more natural settings are finding the Niagara River to be a great place to hike and visit downstream from the Falls where the majority of visitors go.

The Maid of the Mist is one of the biggest attractions, it's a boat that takes tourists to the foot of the falls, where you can better appreciate their thunder and spray. Runs April-October. Boats depart every 15 minutes and the ride is 30 minutes. 

Thank you very much Marie!
