cool. are these shots from Skylon Tower? I definitely think the Canadian side offers better views of the falls, though it's worth seeing from both sides.
Great Photos! looks like you're in a helicopter
Best way to see the falls
Yep, it's most certainly helicopter views. You cannot get spectacular views like this from skylon tower. Soaring above the falls is nothing short of amazing and it is a must do experience along with the maid of mist boat tour.
Thanks for looking at my photos! I was too much of a weenie to take the helicopter tour, so that is from the Skylon Tower. I took a few photos from the windows of the rotating restaurant, too. I was surprised those turned out. I've seen the falls from both sides now (sorry if that makes you sing Joni Mitchell) and they're both pretty great. I felt like the New York side was more natural and the Canadian side was more touristy, but I liked both of those!
weenie..lol. I dont blame you though. I remember my first time being on a helicopter I was so apprehensive. But yea, you took some great shots then if you weren't on a helicopter. What camera did you use?
LOL. I weenie out a lot on vacation. I wish I were more adventurous. I just used a teeny point and shoot Canon. I really think it was dumb luck these came out well!
American side vs Canadian side
I hear a lot of people saying the Canadian side is better than the New York side, etc but I was so disappointed with the Canadian side that I wished I never bother crossing over the border especially after the hassle with the border people. If you do end up crossing the border be prepared to wait for a long time (2 or 3 hours).
Border crossings can be a bummer. I was traveling with a group on a motorcoach, so they took pretty good care of us. I bet we got through in a half hour. But we were expecting it to be much worse. Now when I've been traveling by car, it's been a lot harder. Did you have trouble in New York? I've always found that border harder to cross than the ones in Michigan.
Cool photos. Makes me wanna go there.
Oh you should go there! It's such a cool place. It's touristy, but that's part of the charm. I liked the scale of the town. There was a zillion things to do there, but it never felt crowded or overwhelming. It was really cool to see Niagara Falls from so many angles. It's a must do!
It's great seeing these. I've never been there. lol
