Get Your Motor Running. Head Out on the Highway.

Niagara Falls road trip statistics:

Total hours on the road: 16
Number of "adult" stores passed: 10. Mostly in rural PA. Right next to Amish country. Really?
Number of times we stopped at Tim Hortons: 2
Number of people we saw pulled over: >8
Number of accidents we saw: at least 3, some more serious than others.

Scenes from the drive up:

I got pretty bored when I wasn't driving, as you can see from above.
We arrive!:

The hotel's "falls view". They're there. Behind the trees and the mist. 

We got an "Adventure Pass" and did the Creation of the Falls experience (it shook, was loud and you got wet. They should've warned those with kids and/or me), Journey Behind the Falls where you walk through a tunnel they dug and also get wet, the White Water Walk, a path by the Class 6 rapids below the falls, and the Maid of the Mist boat ride.

I know. We're so adorable. 
Behind the falls.

B LOVED the Maid of the Mist. He hung his head over the side of the boat like a dog in a car while the rest of us huddled against the wind and water.
 And then we changed and had a lovely dinner and found a spot to watch them light up the falls at night:

And then home again, home again, jiggity jig:
Tim Hortons' Vanilla Latte FTW!

I would've smiled if we lived in PA, but we don't, and we still had like 5 hours to go.
