Mesmerized by Niagara Falls

This week we are heading out to take a look at the natural beauty of  Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. With over 20 million people visiting Niagara Falls each year it is easy to see why it is one of the top summer vacation spots in Canada. As soon as you get close to Niagara Falls you will hear the incredibly loud roar of the water created by the three falls known as the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. These three waterfalls are what Niagara Falls is all about.

Journey Behind the Falls

How close up have you ever been to a major waterfall? With Journey Behind the Falls you can get very close by actually walking behind the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

While protected with a raincoat and a cute hat, you can follow the journey through a series of tunnels near the bottom of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

Make sure to have your camera ready so that you can take amazing pictures when you stop at the observation platforms for a better view. Elevators make it very easy to access the tunnels and the observation platform.

Spend Your Honeymoon at Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls has been known as the Honeymoon Capital of the world since the early 1800s and thousands of honeymooners visit the city each year.

It is a very romantic location and many of the local hotels offer honeymoon packages.

After an exciting day visiting the falls you can enjoy a relaxing dinner in the famous revolving dining room in the Skylon Tower. The revolving dining room is 775 feet above the falls and rotates 360 degrees once each hour.
