Niagara Falls was a lot of fun. The falls itself were amazing. Viewing them from the Canada side was much better than from the US side (which I have done when I was younger). I highly recommend doing the Maid of the Mist tour. You get on a boat that literally sails right up to the mouth of the falls. You will get soaked but it's well worth it. The water is freezing and stays that cold year-round. 

I spent several hours at the Casino right by the falls (Fallsview). It's a really nice casino. On par with the Bellagio or Wynn in Vegas. Table limits were $25 minimum for most games. I played a bunch of craps and blackjack switch and ended up winning a good bit. The wifi was terrible. The food court was good. Ate at the Tim Horton's there and enjoyed their grilled panini's. Appears there was a lot of shopping and other things to do (i.e. theater for shows and many restuarants) but didn't have time to partake in any of that. Supposedly, the falls light up at night which I saw pictures of and probably worth an overnight stay. Getting in and out of Niagara was not bad at all. It was pretty much a straight shot from Toronto. Getting out of customs was a breeze and picked up a rental in no time and before I knew it, I was on the highway headed directly for Niagara. That was definitely a plus. Be prepared to walk up and down steel hills. There is little to no parking and a lot of terrain to cover. My legs/feet were pretty sore from walking all day. 

Apparently, I need to write a third paragraph to get videos/pictures to display in the body of the blog entry. Nice "feature", TravelPod. So here's that third paragraph. Now post my video!
