A late summer day after the tourist season has closed can renew you, especially if you pick the right spot. For me, it was a hike across Goat Island in Niagara Falls. It is a lovely area and takes a lot of guff that it doesn’t deserve because of comparisons to all the building across the border, but I like it as is. Maybe its me
The walk on the three sisters island removes you from all the hub bub.
Niagara Falls has some fun parts, just have to look as there is nothing like a sudden 90 degree day to make the hurricane deck at the Cave in the Winds feel forcefully invigorating, a truly fun day off.
You won’t even mind the flip flops.
