I’m almost free for the summer — 2 more days! — and I’m getting ready to use my time off for some travel. I have a couple of trips on the books, but I’ve also been daydreaming about other locations to add. With the Florida temperatures in the mid 90’s and muggy, all of my daydream getaways have been north of here though!
When I was about 10, my family drove up from our home in Ohio to visit Niagara Falls, NY. I remember being so in awe of the massive falls, feeling the spray from the Falls as we stood on the observation platform in rain ponchos, and hearing the guide tell about people who (un-wisely) tried to go over the Falls in a barrel! Even as a kid I was amazed at how beautiful and powerful that place is, and now I’d like to go back as an adult! When I heard about Radisson’s new hotel opening just 12 miles away from Niagara Falls State Park, I knew it was going on my travel wish list for this year.
