When you see Niagara Falls for the first time it is breathtaking but nothing is as amazing as seeing it up close while aboard the Maid of the Mist. The Maid of the Mist is located in New York State along the USA/Canadian border. It is about a 20 minute drive from Buffalo, New York. The Maid of the Mist is a family favorite that should be on everyone’s family travel bucket list.
It has been a while since we spent time in Buffalo and Niagara Falls so we decided to plan a quick day trip that was packed with lots of stops. There are so many family activities in Buffalo and Niagara Falls that it was difficult to fit it all in one day. We decided to spend the day seeing the sites and enjoying some great food along the way.
