The Niagara Falls are magnificent, so it is not really surprising that millions of people flock to see them every year. But, for many, it is a long journey, so, they want their visit to be a special one. Something they will remember for a lifetime. Here are a few suggestions to help you to plan your special trip.
Stay in a special hotel
There are plenty of very nice hotels to choose from in this popular tourist area. They each have their merits, but the Spa Packages at Marriott on the Falls get especially good reviews. If you book early you can even get a view of the waterfalls from your room. After a couple of days of sightseeing, it feels especially nice to be pampered. A few hours in the spa is the perfect way to recharge your batteries.
Seeing the waterfalls
You can experience the waterfalls in several different ways. One of the most thrilling is to take a boat ride. Most of the boats take you to within a few meters of the actual waterfalls. It is very thrilling, but if you do not wear the free plastic ponchos that are usually provided, you will get wet.
Taking the Journey Behind the Falls tour is another way to get close to the waterfalls. You are whisked deep into the earth in an elevator, then, after a short walk through some tunnels and caves, you emerge onto a wooden walkway. It is located right opposite the waterfall, so you get to experience the true power of all of that water gushing over the falls. An experience you are likely to remember for the rest of your life.
Enjoy a meal with a Fall View
There are several restaurants that offer you a chance to eat a meal while enjoying a view of the magnificent waterfalls. They each offer a different style of food, so it is easy to find one that will suit your tastes and dietary needs. The Sunday Brunch at The Watermark is a particularly popular way to enjoy good food with views of the waterfalls. But, the tables fill up fast, so it is best to make a reservation. Or, you could view the waterfalls from above by enjoying a meal in the Skylon Tower.
Experience the white water walk
If you like walking, the white water walk is well worth taking. It is not too arduous, so it is suitable for most people.
Spend the day in Paradise Grove
