Niagara Falls is home to one of the most breathtaking vistas in the United States. It has a reputation as a fantastic honeymoon spot, to which the sheer number of romantic hotels in Niagara Falls will testify. But this city is home to more than its three iconic waterfalls. Situated on the border between Ontario and New York state, it offers a variety of tourist attractions, ranging from the cheap and family-friendly all the way to the upscale.
No visit to Niagara Falls is complete without a trip to these iconic cataracts. Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls all move four million cubic feet of water per minute, and their striking breadth allows a panoramic view of nature's power. Nearby Prospect Point Park offers an observation tower that doubles as the launching point of the Maid of the Mist boat tour, and the Cave of the Winds elevator, on Goat Island, allows you to walk right to the edge of Bridal Veil Falls' flow. Some of the best hotels in Niagara Falls are near this attraction, although if you wish to visit in the summer, it's important to book as early as possible.
Situated just outside Niagara Falls proper, the Niagara Wine Trail showcases some of the most striking vineyards and best varieties of wine from this up-and-coming wine region. The Niagara Wine Trail is busiest in September for its harvest festival, when the grapes are being picked and the previous year's vintages are being showcased, so be sure to check out hotels near Niagara Falls during that time. With twenty-two vineyards on the trail, and group tours available all year round, this region offers plenty for wine lovers to see, do, and taste. If this or other attractions pique your imagination, Travelocity offers many exciting Niagara Falls hotel deals.
