Niagara Falls, New York

Every second, 750,000 gallons of water thunder over Niagara Falls. Visitors from around the world travel to witness this thunderous natural wonder and feel the spray from the powerful falls on their skin. Situated on the border between New York and Canada, Niagara Falls is one of the world's most spectacular sights. 

The Niagara Falls State Park on the New York side of the falls boasts the superlative of America's oldest state park. The natural wonderland features miles upon miles of hiking trails, an interactive visitor's center, a multi-screen theater and even a rock-climbing wall. On any given day, a trail of yellow poncho-clad visitors snake down wooden staircases that zig-zag through mountainous terrain to viewing points close to and even behind the falls. The ever-popular Maid of the Mist boats traverse the waters, soaking every patron as their screams of delight are drowned by the roar. Coming by at night is a special treat, as the waterfall is illuminated in a display of dancing neon lights.
