I was lucky enough to visit USA during the month of October/November. Not to forget it was the best time to visit Niagara Falls and the season of fall.
I travelled on a work purpose to Philadelphia city during end of October and could not wait for a weekend to explore more of the country. My colleagues and I were in a dilemma whether to visit Washington, New York or visit Niagara. And my heart was screaming Niagaraaaaaaaa pleaseeee.
As a teenage I used to hear a lot of stories from my cousin who visited Niagara and mentioned how beautiful the majestic fall is, and when I was finally visiting the country I for sure had this on my checklist.
Saturday- October 29th 2016.
8 a.m.- Drive to Buffalo USA
We considered options to travel via bus or take a flight, but we were 10 in number and we thought the best way is to rent a vehicle and drive through the city, and the road trip is the best when you have a group of people isn’t it?
We rode through the Binghamton NY and took the highway and west to Buffalo, the scenary along this route was the most breath taking, as I could witness the trees turned red due to fall and the leaf falling along the way. And it was Halloween time of year and i could see many houses decorated with pumpkins and kids dressed to go around for Trick or treat.
We stopped over couple of times for lunch and breaks as the journey was a 6 hour longer. 380 miles to be exact.
6 p.m. - Arrived at Niagara falls state park
We arrived at Buffalo by Sunset around 6pm and checked into our hotel. We got freshened up real quick and rushed to witness the night view of the falls.
The weather was real cold and chilly; we had our jackets on to keep ourselves warmer. My first view will always be the moment to cherish, the sound of falls and the drizzle from it was all that I wanted in night. We were able to view the illumination; the falls looked like a rainbow with the greatest sight. I could totally go with the quote “"To see the fall at night is to be wide awake in the land of dreams". We could view the city of Toronto from the other end and the lightings were just striking. It was almost late night and we got back to our hotel to rest.
