Another sign of summer is the season opening of the Maid of This Mist in Niagara Falls.  The 2018 season will begin this Friday, April 27th at 9 a.m. You'll be able to take a ride to the base of Niagara Falls for an experience to remember. Souvenir rain ponchos are provided. The last day of the 2018 season will be Sunday November 4th so you'll have plenty of time to experience the Maid of the Mist this summer.

I've only done this tour once and it was when I first moved to Buffalo in 1999.  Some friends of mine from Michigan came to visit me and we voted to go see the falls and do everything the tourists would do, including taking a ride on the Maid of the Mist.  Trips depart every 15 minutes from Prospect Point, Niagara Falls State Park in Niagara Falls, New York and last approximately 20 minutes.

We're very fortunate to live so close to Niagara Falls and to be able to experience one of the coolest things about touring Niagara Falls.
