Visiting Niagara Falls, NY is so much more than just seeing the impressive water falls.
Cool off on a hot day as the wind sprays mist in your face. Feel the raw power reverberate through your body as millions of gallons of water flow by so close that you can practically touch it. Taste award winning wines and beers. Or walk in the footsteps of revolutionary war soldiers or escaping Civil War slaves. A long weekend in Niagara Falls, NY gave me all these sensory experiences and so much more.
This is the classic view you get of Horseshoe Falls from the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The majority of Horseshoe Falls lies in Canada, but with the erosion over the past 400 years since the falls were discovered by Europeans, a corner of Horseshoe falls now also sits on American soil. To get a wet and really up close perspective of these falls, you can take a boat ride from either country: the Maid of the Mist on the American side and Hornblower Niagara Cruises on the Canadian side.
