Maid of the Mist Boat Ride

Since 1846, visitors have been getting soaked by the Niagara Falls on the Maid of the Mist boat tour. Each passenger is issued a blue poncho, but be prepared to get wet! The Falls straddle the Canadian and American border, and are actually made up of 3 waterfalls, Bridal Falls and American Falls on the U.S. side, and Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. Maid of the Mist is a great way to experience the Falls - some might even say it's a rite of passage, like climbing the Eiffel Tower or crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. So why not check it off your bucket list?
