#2 Niagara Falls – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

On our last day in Boston we got our rental car, a spacious Hyundai Santa Fé, and started our road trip from Boston to Seattle, from East to West, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Dunkin Donuts to Starbucks. This stage should take us around 6’200 km through 13 states. Off we go…


First was Buffalo NY and Niagara Falls. A picture says more than a thousand words they say, so let me make it quick: the Niagara Falls are impressive and by itself beautiful, the surroundings consisting of Casinos and big Hotels are a shame and shouldn’t have been built in the first place. But hey, you can still frame up some sweet shots, check it out!

Rainbow over Niagara Falls
American Falls and Niagara Falls
Silky Niagara Falls
Seriously? – Seriously!

Tip: park on the American side and cross the Rainbow Bridge to Canada on foot. This way you skip the usually long car queue and you also get another stamp in your passport, yaay.
Oh yeah, Buffalo. I guess you would have to spend some time there to get to know and appreciate it. We didn’t. Let’s move on.

    1. Thanks, we were quite lucky with that I guess. Well,we got as close as you can without going on the tour boat. You can actually stand right on the side where the water starts crashing down.
