|Niagara Falls Motorcycle Trip|
|The Falls and Clifton Hill|
With a combined 375cc split between two motorcycles, Adrian and Ashley ride their little bikes to Niagara Falls for all kinds of silliness in the city of big water.
Our plan was simple: Travel from Toronto to Niagara Falls on the bikes, taking no highways. We travelled along Lakeshore / HWY 2, eventually arriving at HWY 20 / Lundy’s Lane. With all of the breaks we took, as well as time spent waiting for boats to cross our lift-bridge, it took us over 3 hours to make it to Niagara Falls. We didn't have any real issues along the way however.
We arrived on Victoria Day, May 24, 2010. We hoped to watch the fireworks over the falls, but weren't very successful, so we enjoyed watching the lights on the water and went for a motorcycle ride by the falls, an experience similar to riding through a wall of mist.
That same night we hit up the Casino. It was interesting seeing people still streaming into the casino well after midnight. The five dollars Adri won were soon spent on food: the Niagara Falls strip has kitchens open late, even on a holiday Monday.
Our suite wasn’t great but it was cozy and when we thought we'd return for some well-deserved rest we found a message from Andrew saying he was on his way over Toronto. We hung out until the crack of dawn, then Andrew left for the Casino and we went to sleep. We would be woken up by the neighbour's room a few hours later, but at least Andrew won $250! Nice!
Everything was over the top. Even the Burger King featured a giant Frankenstein's monster having a burger. We enjoyedLotus Garden, a Chinese food restaurant by Rock Legends Wax Museum and the Days Inn Hotel on Center St. Lunch specials were only $4.99 and dinners were $6.99, ready quickly. Adri asked for a beer and got carded, but we forgave them as the food was great as was the price. Check it out here.
