It is a unique experience witnessing the rushing waters of Niagara Falls. It is like thunder: pure power crashing down 50 meters, slamming, crushing, the mist rising up like a steady rain. Niagara Falls — the quintessential embodiment of the power of nature — is something you can watch over and over again. The region surrounding the falls, on both sides, has so much to offer. Niagara-on-the-Lake, north of the falls in Canada, is not to be missed for its wine and theater—nor is Buffalo, named “America’s Favorite City” by readers of Travel and Leisure.
