Niagara Falls

You’ll rarely find a site as breathtaking and majestic as Niagara Falls. Located in a strait between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, and shared by the United States and Canada, the Falls have become a popular vacation spot for families and honeymooners alike.

You can view the Falls year round from observation points on both the American and Canadian sides of the Niagara River. But a visit to Niagara Falls on a summer night will reveal a dazzling display of lights and fireworks. The roar of the Falls and the gently cool mist impresses young and old alike.
