The mighty Niagara Falls was created by the recession of the ice glaciers formed by the ice age. Niagara Falls has been the most popular honeymoon destination for hundreds of years ever since Jerome Bonaparte, the young brother of famous Napoleon Bonaparte first took his new bride to the magnificent falls on their honeymoon.
In 1846 the very first Maid of the Mist took its maiden voyage under the falls. It was first designed as a Ferry from one side of the Niagara River to the other until better forms of transporting goods were designed and more people preferred to use the Maid of the Mist to experience the fall of the mighty water first hand and up close. It then became one of the most beloved tourist attractions in the world and more and more boats were added to the fleet. Throughout its long and illustrious history the Maid has suffered many setbacks from natural disasters caused by ice jams in the river to fires and financial distress but through it all it survived and refused to be lost to the public.
The trip to the falls on the Maid has held many famous and illustrious visitors such as Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, Princess Diana and her children, President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalyn Carter and many more. No matter how many famous people it carries its most important role is that of helping everyone enjoy the majesty of the mighty Niagara Falls. It now enjoys a massive success as a popular attraction that is second to none.
For over 150 years the Maid of the Mist has provided visitors with the most thrilling ride possible and hopefully it will continue to do so for the next 150 years. Experiencing the natural wonder of the Niagara Falls at their finest is something no one should ever have to miss out on.
