For $11, the half-mile walk along the raging waters of Niagara Falls that runs up north, is not worth it. No, I dont mean its not worth visiting. It is. Its just too damn expensive for such very short walk where you cant even swirl your fingers into the water (yeah, right, for security purposes).
Once you paid, youll be led to a tiny elevator that goes and takes you down to the tunnel which is full of vandals of peoples name who came, saw and conquered the said tourist attraction. There is, of course, light at the end of the tunnel, literally. As you walk on the tunnel, your steps reverberates a bit while you hear a rising crescendo of the surging water that excites all your senses.
There, at the end of a concrete burrow, is the tempestuous river that roars and sounds like an orchestra–always in full swing! The tourists are quiet, saying their ohhs and ahhs almost in a breathless whisper. The blaring cacophony of the seething, cascading water is frightening.
Once you are used to the roaring sound, it becomes music to your ears. Walk along the river by taking the elevated boardwalk. Walk slowly and admire the sumptuous beauty of Fall. The Niagara escarpment of boulders and rocks will make you wonder the centuries of battles and struggles between two intrepid earth elements: water and rock.
