Internationally famous and staggeringly beautiful, Niagara Falls has been a well-loved stop for travelers for what might seem as long as the river has been crashing onto the rocks below. Thousands come each year for the chance to crane their necks over the edge or bravely climb aboard a boat and watch over 6 million cubic feet of water rush down the chasm, with views that stretch across into Canada. The constant roar of the Falls might be what brings you in, but there’s far more to Niagara Falls than the Falls themselves.
Hike and explore along the Niagara Gorge Trail, a lush patch of green that will take you past some of the best views of the landmark. The churning waters of Whirlpool State Park make for a memorable photo opportunity, while the park itself is a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch. Whet your palate with a journey along the Niagara Wine Trail, your best opportunity to get a taste for the area’s unique wine creations.
Art buffs and casual admirers alike will enjoy the Castellani Art Museum, with both nationally known and local works on display. The Science Museum is sure to spark your imagination, with hands-on exhibits and an incredible collection of equipment and artifacts. One piece of history not to be missed is the Daredevil Museum that pays homage to those brave, crazy souls who have attempted to ride down the Falls.
