We flew from Punta Cana into Toronto and rented a car there with Cam and headed to Niagara that night. Checked into the Hojo and headed downtown.large_F4B489ED2219AC6817E95EB655943371.jpglarge_F4BA28352219AC6817F5CB724AC7B3EF.jpglarge_F4BEE7C82219AC68175ABE31487FF1F3.jpg
We checked out the main drag which was full of people and nightlife. The little city was like an amusement park! Casinos, bars and tons of games and attractions like Ripleys Believe it or Not, Margaritaville, and Haunted houses. We called it an early night so we could get up early the next day and see as much as we could.

The falls themselves were amazing of course.

But the thing that impressed me the most were all the parks and old power stations that are now shut down. There were no tourists in these areas at all and were some of the most interesting sights of the day.

The quick trip was well worth it for sure. We headed back into Toronto to drop off Cam earlier for his flight home said our goodbyes to our last familiar face and waited for our late night flight to London!
