The Maid of the Mist is North America’s oldest tourist attraction.Ridden by dignitaries and celebrities such as Princess Diana,Marilyn Monroe,former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbechev and Brad Pitt,a visit to the base of the falls is a priority for all who visit the region.
On May 27th,1846,the very first Maid of the Mist boat was first introduced,but not as a tourist attraction.It ferried people,cargo,and mail across the river for a small fee.However,making money in this regard was short-lived after the first Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge was completed.1848 saw a temporary bridge introduced,and in 1854 a lower deck was opened for pedestrian and carriage purposes.Taking money away from the ferry,it was decided to turn the Maid of the Mist into a tourist attraction,allowing people to get as close to the Falls as possible.
All passengers are given a recyclable poncho to keep clothing dry,as they expose you to a extraordinary experience that can only be described as awe-inspiring.Maid of the Mist tours run from April to October each year depending on the weather conditions.Boats can be boarded from the American side of the Falls,every 15 minutes during peak season.
