Niagara Falls is
one of the World's Most Famous Places.
The vacation destination for more than
16,000,000 visitors a year, from around the globe, Niagara Falls is on the list of one of the
places one has to visit in a lifetime.While most residents of Niagara Falls may not get the
opportunity to travel around the world, the world comes to Niagara in a never ending stream every
The falls are 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 75 miles (121 km)
south-southeast of Toronto, Ontario, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara
Falls, New York.
Niagara Falls give off a round-the-clock roar, a refreshing - and
surprisingly far - reaching - mist, and a reminder of just how wondrous our natural world is.
For those that long to get up close to the Falls, put your famous blue slicker on and jump
aboard the Maid of the Mist Niagara Falls to go right up to the base, walk behind them at Journey
Behind the Falls, or fly over them on a helicopter ride. And that's just the beginning.
Even at night the Falls are impressive. The nightly illumination means you can enjoy them
anywhere you have a Falls view - from your Niagara hotel, restaurant, cocktail lounge or
observation deck. Every Friday-Sunday during the summer months and on special occasions,
Falls Fireworks add a little extra colour to the display.
