Niagara Falls
A popular place for being thrilled or soaked amid natural splendour, Niagara Falls attracts curious spectators and adventurous honeymooners from around the world. The splendid main attraction -- more than six million cubic feet of water cascading over a rocky crest -- sits partially in the United States and partially in Canada. The US side has recently been busy promoting other activities to lure visitors. Venues like the Aquarium of Niagara offer fun and engaging alternatives for adults and children, after or in between visits to the Falls. Outdoor recreation such as hiking, cycling, fishing and camping can be found at the Niagara Falls State Park. The history of attempts to conquer the majestic Falls is captured... more A popular place for being thrilled or soaked amid natural splendour, Niagara Falls attracts curious spectators and adventurous honeymooners from around the world. The splendid main attraction -- more than six million cubic feet of water cascading over a rocky crest -- sits partially in the United States and partially in Canada. The US side has recently been busy promoting other activities to lure visitors. Venues like the Aquarium of Niagara offer fun and engaging alternatives for adults and children, after or in between visits to the Falls. Outdoor recreation such as hiking, cycling, fishing and camping can be found at the Niagara Falls State Park. The history of attempts to conquer the majestic Falls is captured at the Daredevil Museum; the Schoellkopf Museum concentrates on the history and geology. There's more to the Falls than, well, the Falls, including a wide array of dining and accommodation options, from budget to luxury. This awe-inspiring region makes for an exhilarating and multi-faceted getaway. less
