The maid of the mist is one of a kind experience. Majestic and the closest you can be with the falls. I definitely recommend this to be part of your Niagara Falls trip.

I was talked into going, hesitant because of the crowds, but the line moved quickly and there was plenty of room on the boat. Seeing the falls and feeling the mist from the water level was really spectacular. I highly recommend it.

At First I was Nervous to go on the Boat then one of my Friends said to me that they've tried it one time and that it wasn't so bad. I really liked seeing the falls up close. Nothing to dislike about this attraction
