The LAF SOMe group (That is Life After 50, Seniors on the Move for those of you not familiar with the moniker) headed out on a full bus last Wednesday for a fun-filled adventure.  Our destination was the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY.  The casino is located a short walk from Niagara Falls State Park where the American Falls can be viewed from walkways along Prospect Point Park.
Many of us walked and some caught a cab over to view the splendor of The Falls.  Once there, the trails in the state park led us right up to the edge of the thundering wonder and breathtaking beauty of the three massive waterfalls.  Getting close enough to almost touch the millions of gallons of water that rocket over The Falls every minute inspired genuine awe.
Personally, I had never visited The Falls from the American side.  I was impressed with the extent of the park system and its amenities.  I was told there was no closer place to feel Niagara’s flow than from the vista points and trails of Niagara Falls State Park, which also happens to be America’s oldest state park.
Back at the casino, we entertained ourselves with over 4,200 slot machines and over 100 gaming tables!   We all had disembarked with high hopes of “hitting the big one”, but many of us returned a little lighter in the wallet!
The casino was upgrading the computer system on the day we went, so instead of a free-play slot bonus, we were awarded a free buffet meal at the Thunder Falls Buffet.  The food and the service were both exemplary.  The all-you-can-eat buffet offered eight serving stations with enough variety to satiate every pallet.
The food, The Falls and the company made the afternoon quite enjoyable!  Consider joining us for our next bus trip.  Later this fall we a planning a progressive luncheon/winery tour that will include several stops and opportunities for shopping too!
