Niagara Falls- think vegas meets a circus meets rushing river
On the way home from Lake Placid we detoured into Canada to check out Niagara Falls. Our new thing this year is integrating some vacation time with races. It's been awesome seeing so many new places this year :) Niagara Falls is amazing! The actual town is very over-the-top and over-priced, but the falls are worth it. After a $16 Grand Slam at Dennys (ridiculous) we headed down to the river and took a great ride on the Maid of the Mist. This is a must-do activity if you are at the Falls.
After a clean exit though border patrol we were back rollin' in the states on our way to Ohio to visit John's family and to celebrate his birthday. Luckily his dad just got a new boat, so we spent a relaxing day on Lake Erie.
The water was surprisingly warm (high 70's) so we even got some good swimming in :)
