... for ages you could go on the Maid of the Mist from both sides of the river...
We went on the Maid of the Mist when I was a kid, in 1977...I'm not sure whether it was from the US side or the Canadian side since we visited both on that trip.
I released a book called "Strange Events of Ontario: Chilling Tales of Phantoms, Curses, and Hauntings" in front of the ticket wickets for the boat cruises, because the book contains the First Nations legend that gave us the name Maid of the Mist in the first place.
That must be a good story. :)
Great timing on the photo! I never manage to get fireworks properly.
