Our Christmas travels made this destination a good stopping point on our way from Kansas City to Boston. The experience was equally as strange as Dollywood or Disneyland with the surplus of Rainforest Cafes and minigolf. The falls are suffocated by city lights and tourist industry in a way that is like no other place. Magnificent has been made pathetic.
It's hard to imagine this space before civilization. What would it be like to hear just the falls and not the closophobic chatter and Christmas music radiating into one's mind.
The worst of it is that at night, they shine colorful lights into the falls and animate them with fluorescent red and blues. The real has been lost in these transformations.
