How fortunate I am to live just 4 hours away from one of the largest waterfalls in the world, The Niagara Falls. I had been there 3 to 4 times, but never had enough of it. We been to the one in the New York State, as we live in the US. Niagara Falls forms on the Niagara River which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario and is nestled on the border of New York State and Canada. It comprises of three waterfalls, the largest among them is Horseshoe Falls, also known as Canadian Falls which is on the Canada Side. The other two, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls which are slightly smaller is in the United States. It is known for its amazing beauty and volume of water😊. I heard that its also helpful in hydroelectric power supply for commercial and industrial purposes👍.
When you enter inside the Niagara Falls State Park, the first thing what you witness is the American Falls and I swear you will get stunned by its beauty💕. You can click here as many pictures as you want of this beauty and yourself with the falls on the background, but most important is mind capture it, it’s very peaceful. The Falls Park offers so many great attractions, which includes Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Aquarium and Discovery Centre. To have this experience which is full of fun, I would recommend you to buy the Discovery Pass which is really helpful and convenient. This pass also include unlimited trolley service which runs throughout the park which is really great. Now, let me give you a little information about each attraction👇.
Cave of the Winds: At this attraction, first they will provide you ponchos and sandals which will try to keep you dry and then you have to enter the elevator which will take you some feet down, there you will come across this wooden walkways that takes you to this popular spot called Hurricane Deck. This deck gives you a life time experience of getting so close to the Bridal Veil Falls that you can even feel the water on you and take a picture standing just right beside the falls😍. Cave of the Winds is beyond imagination, you have to experience it to feel it❤️. There is also this place called The World Changed Here Pavilion which is located upstairs and gives you insight about the history of the falls.
Maid of the Mist: This attraction is one of my favorite. Maid of the Mist is a boat tour which takes you into the basin of very popular and great Horseshoe Falls and that gives you an amazing and closer view of the Falls👍. They will provide you Ponchos and sandals which helps you keep yourself dry. If you’re in Niagara Falls Park, this ride is an absolute must-do.
Aquarium of Niagara: Apart from Niagara Falls, the park has to offer so many other things and one of them is this magical place. To have a look on some of the great aquatic species, you have to see this place. You will get to see some activities like Sea lion shows and Penguin feeding here. This place is accessible by a trolley😊.
The Discovery Centre: Here, you will get to see so many amazing exhibits which tells you so much about the history of the Niagara Falls. This place is educational and if you’re a history buff, you have to go see this attraction.
Apart from these attractions, if you have a good amount of time, there are also some of the best hiking trails which takes you close to nature👍. We wanted to spend most our time on actually witnessing the fall and mind capturing it, so, didn’t get a chance to hike, but I heard that it is great. If you’re staying overnight, don’t miss the Niagara Falls Light show in the night. It’s breathtaking and you will get a lot of amazing pictures😍. If you’re looking for accommodation, I would recommend Rainbow House Bed and Breakfast. They have these romantic and cozy rooms, beautiful garden, delicious breakfast, cute cats and last but not the least it is at a walkable distance from Niagara Falls🥰. Our overall experience was exceptional and still craving to go there while writing this blog. If you have any questions, please comment below.
