Living in Pittsburgh is not convenient to many places. One place we can get to without much trouble is Niagara Falls. (I can never say “Niagara Falls” without thinking of the Three Stooges.) “Slowly I turn….step by step….inch by inch”. Kinda showing my age. Anyway, it turns out that The Falls are a great place to go for a weekend, especially if you’re only about four hours away by car. I had an uncle who lived just south of the falls in Tonawanda, NY and we used to go up to visit him a lot (more about Uncle Pat later). We also used to go through on our way to Canada to play hockey when we were kids. The result is that I’ve been there about 100 times in all seasons. Things have changed since I was a kid, though. Remember when you go that you need to have your passport with you now.
