New York’s Niagara Falls is probably no stranger to you, at least by name.

Here is one of the natural wonders of the world. Niagara Falls is like a beautiful woman with different clothes on every season. I remember the first time I came here it was after Christmas; the park's grass and trees were covered with a layer of ice, like an ice sculpture. On this visit, the falls were surrounded by beautiful autumn scenery with sparkling, clear water.

Close Contact with the Falls

To be in close contact with the Great Falls, there is no better choice than the Maid of the Mist tour. In order to keep your clothes and hair dry, you’ll need to get a raincoat. Cruise through the fog-formed rainbows straight toward Niagara Falls. When you arrive at the bottom of the waterfall, you can hear the thunder of the waters and feel the mist swirling. It is beyond exciting and totally worthwhile.

You can also take the Cave of the Winds tour at Niagara Falls State Park. Walk along the path and step closer to the waterfall; you will feel the wind increase, and even with a raincoat, the mist will cover your trousers and shoes At the bottom, you'll feel like you’re in the middle of everything with the water flowing around you. You’ll enjoy the scenery and deeply experience Niagara Falls’ majesty.

Beautiful and Peaceful Three Sisters Island

Also in Niagara Falls State Park, you’ll find many vast green spaces. Take a tram to Three Sisters Island, named after the daughters of a prominent historical figure of the area. Here, you can view the falls' rapids from among the islands’ connecting bridges. The scenery changes when you take a walk in the park. Here, walking and breathing the fresh air, how can you not relax?
