Bernie and I headed off to Niagara Falls today. The weather in Holiday Valley/Ellicottville was not real good.
Niagara Falls is interesting. There are actually 2 falls separated by an island called Goat Island. The falls on the American side of Goat Island are called the American Falls and they are "straight" falls, and the falls on the Canadian side of Goat Island are called the Canadian Falls and are shaped like a horseshoe so are often also referred to as Horseshoe Falls. There are "twin" towns on either side of the falls each called Niagara Falls. The Canadian town of Niagara Falls has better views of the falls and is a significantly more developed for tourists with Casinos and expensive hotels. Interesting place to visit.
