It's officially tourist season in Niagara Falls !!! When the Maid Of The Mist sets sail, here we come. On May 4th people will be ready to take the mistical ride.  The Maid Of the Mist has been around since 1846. The tour is returning to the water three weeks later than last year.  The maid will sail every 15 minutes beginning at 10am. I'm ready to put on my plastic poncho and rain hat to enjoy the falls close up!
