1: Niagara Falls, New York
Finally, we couldn’t leave out Niagara Falls, one of the most famous waterfalls in the whole world, right on our doorstep. In terms of volume, it’s the largest waterfalls in the nation and it is composed of three different waterfalls, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and of course the Horseshoe Falls.
From May through October, you can visit the Horseshoe Falls via the Maid of the Mist boat, a very popular tourist attraction. For the best view of the Bridal Falls, take the glass elevator to the Prospect Observation Tower to the Cave of the Winds Tour! The park offers so much more, though, all tucked in 400 acres of wildlife!
We highly recommend bringing your rain gear and also visiting during the night for a view like no other thanks to different lights setting the waterfall ‘ablaze’.
