New York City

On our trip there we were lucky to be able visit the towers. We were able to visit the top of the tower and view much of the island. It is very hard to believe what happened to them..Inside the towers was very grand...We spent some time on the roof admiring the view..We bought some key chains and had ice cream before we left ..........

We were only in the city for a day and we were busy all day. There is a lot to do and see in the city.If you go plan more than 1 day and take your time to see it all.
We were able to do the twin towers, statue of liberty, battery park, Saint john the devines, shop and a few more things for the day.
There are bus tours or you can do your own getting a map and taking the sub ways...

Niagra Falls

On a different trip we went to niagra Falls. We were there in November and we were lucky that the weather was not to bad for that time of year.
The falls a wonderful . There are lots of things to do and see, but most of it is on the canadian side, the U.S side has very little if anything at all.
The town has grown alot and is more of a little las vages ...

Battery Park

On the trip to new York city we werre down at Battery Park waiting for the boat over to Lady Liberty.
There are a few sites to see down it that area and there are many street venders around to keep you shopping busy...

    Isn't Niagara Falls beautiful? It sounds like you enjoyed your visit there--we sure did! We've been to both sides and liked the Canadian side better. Thanks for the tour!

    Interesting page. I love Niagara Falls. Its one of the most beautiful things I have seen. And I agree with your tourists traps tips. There is much to be avoided at Niagara.
