Reasons To Visit Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is known more for its three waterfalls than the city itself, although the city offers surprisingly more than just a base to see the famous waterfalls. However, most people coming to the city will be visiting the Niagara Falls State Park which is not just home to the three falls but other sights including the Cave of the Winds. Although you can see the waterfalls from an observation deck, it is possible to go on a boat tour, known as the Maid of the Mist, to get up close with the waterfalls. Another popular attraction in the area is the Aquarium of Niagara which is ideal for families with kids, or you can enjoy a day out at the Whirlpool State Park which offers hiking, fishing and mountain biking.
