I dragged my grown kids up here from Bangor to celebrate a birthday. I didn't tell them where we were going, a "surprise." As we passed various other attractions (the Potato Museum), they were understandably confused. Grand Falls is a cute little town; we had a good dinner in a nice pub on the main street. But the HUGE attraction is definitely the falls, absolutely ROARING in May---and the exhilarating experience of soaring out over them on the Zip Zag lines---what a blast! The staff was great; it's rather daunting to take that first step off the platform. But after that it's just sheer fun; goes too fast. I'm going back sometime when the water is low, so that I get the effect of the empty gorge rather than the full one---also, it looks as if this is a lovely place to visit in the heat of summer, when you can be lazy on the gorge. We stayed in Norma Cote's B&B, very pleasant and a great breakfast.
