Views of two main waterfalls, mists spraying in your face, and the rushing of the Niagara River all combine to give one a spectacular experience of visiting Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
Walking along the cliff overlooking the river, you can easily spend hours gazing into the falls and marveling at such a masterpiece. Horseshoe Falls affords a more panoramic view of a water curtain, while American Falls is beautifully laden with sprays falling atop large rocks. Gazing at the view is another one of the world’s inspirational travel moments.
Additionally, the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario offers shopping, dining and entertainment. The falls are often still visible while roaming through the city. Enjoy a cup of coffee while strolling, and be prepared for the cool breezes flowing off the water.
One can even adventure atop the Skylon Tower for a high-up view. Boat-rides on the river towards the falls allow for a close-up experience.
While mists of water flowing off of the intense waterfalls will often make it difficult to escape without getting wet, this simply adds to the dynamic of the experience. You will see not only rushing falls but sprays of water pouring into the air. Visiting Niagara Falls is truly a sight to behold!
Stay through the evening and experience an array of lights that are shone onto the falls in shades of reds, yellows, greens, purples and blues. These enormous lights bring another level of depth to the water and specifically highlight the waterfalls.
You can see the close-up colors of the lit up city of Niagara Falls, Canada, and then look across the river and see the lights of New York state shining behind American Falls.
Anyone who enjoys the intense beauty of the water will love taking in the sights and visiting Niagara Falls, Ontario!

Having been away from the United States for about 3 years now, I sometimes forget about all the wonderful places to see and experience on the continent of North America. There are truly some amazing sights to see all over the world.
