My family and I had dinner at the restaurant at the top of our hotel, The Watermark Restaurant. The main reason we went to that restaurant was because of the spectacular view of the falls.

I hadn’t been to Niagara Falls since I was probably 7 or 8 years old so I wanted to see it as an adult. All I remembered from back then was wearing a poncho and getting soaked on the boat ride through the falls. We didn’t go on a boat ride this time which was fine with me. I just admired the view from above! My family…
