Oscar Wilde once said “Niagara Falls is the American bride’s second great disappointment.”
We beg to disagree. We went to Niagara Falls a few years ago, almost on a whim, and were amazed by the sheer magnificence of the falls. It’s well worth a trip.
There’s plenty to do here in addition to the falls, but a cruise on the Maid of the Mist is a must-do. Bundle up in a slicker and head out on deck as the boat sails to the base of Horseshoe Falls. It’s a thrilling experience you’ll never forget.
For a different perspective, take a helicopter flight over the falls. Or watch Niagara the movie on the six-story tall IMAX screen.
Two new Niagara Falls hotels – one on the Canadian side and one on the American side – offer travelers exactly what they’re looking for when they come here: fantastic views.
Just about 100 yards from the bank, The Embassy Suites Fallsview offers spacious, luxurious accommodations that feature mini bars, refrigerators, wet bars, microwaves, two TVs, and two telephones.
A hot breakfast with made-to-order omelets is included in the rate. And a Keg Steakhouse & Bar is located on site. There’s a fitness center, a swimming pool, a video arcade, and a business center for copying, printing, or faxing.
Rooms on the upper floors of the 42-story hotel have incredible views of the falls. And suites with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs are available. The Embassy Suites is the newest Niagara Falls hotel.
The Sheraton at the Falls recently opened in the old Crowne Plaza at Third and Niagara on the American side of the falls. It’s next to the Seneca Niagara Casino and the Niagara Falls Conference Center.
The 391 renovated rooms were outfitted with Sheraton Sweet Sleeper pillow-top beds, work desks with leather chairs, 37” LCD TVs, and walk-in showers. Suites have separate living and dining areas, refrigerators, microwaves, and walk-in closets,
