Get up early the next morning for a filling American-style breakfast, before heading to the visitor centre to board the Maid of the Mist. It’s an unmissable boat trip, which has been sailing since 1846. You’ll sail calmly towards the wall of water and the closer you get, the happier you are to be wearing your poncho and the roaring, thundering sound grows louder and louder. After the boat trip, walk across the Rainbow Bridge to the Canadian side of the falls, being careful not to forget your passport, for a visit to the Horseshoe Falls. If you have time to spare, visit Goat Island and the Three Sisters Islands, from which you can take the elevator down to Cave of the Winds with Hurricane Deck.
