Niagara Falls Weekend Getaway (Saturday, Part 2)

On Saturday, February 21, we visited both the Canadian and American side of Niagara Falls.  I shared photographs from our visit to Niagara Falls, Canada, in yesterday’s blog post.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs from the American side of the falls.

On Friday afternoon we had walked from our hotel to Prospect Point to the brink of the American Falls.  Because of a heavy icy mist the falls were barely visible during that visit.  On Saturday morning the view was so much better!

While at Prospect Point, Bob photographed me with his buddy, Binnie Ocular.

From Prospect Point we walked along the Niagara River and crossed a bridge onto Goat Island.

While on Goat Island, we also viewed Horseshoe Falls from Terrapin Point.

From Terrapin Point we walked back to our hotel.

See the squirrel? It was perched 5 stories high on the ledge of our hotel building. We saw it climb up the side of the building. Crazy squirrel!

We were back in our hotel around 10:00 am.  We warmed up and relaxed for a couple hours.

Our next trip outside was to go to lunch.  We ate lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, which is located a block from our hotel (Comfort Inn The Pointe).  We each ordered burgers.  Bob ordered the Mushroom & Swiss Burger.  I ordered the Hickory Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger.  French fries accompanied our burgers.  Lunch was good and very filling.  After lunch, we returned to the hotel.

Our last trip outside was to go to dinner. We ate dinner at Legends Bar & Grill, which was located halfway between the hotel and the Seneca Niagara Casino. For less than $25 we dined on 12-ounce strip steaks, accompanied by tossed salad, onion rings and broccoli. Dinner was very good; service was okay.

We walked back to the hotel after dinner, where we stayed for rest of the night.
