On my last trip to the United States I made an impulsive decision to book a flight via Toronto on route to NYC, and then spent weeks wondering if the expensive detour to see Niagara Falls would be worth it.

To sum it up in two words - IT WAS (Lots of exclamation marks)

Niagara Falls is simply stunning. I spent a whole day and night just looking at its majesty and I will be forever grateful that I took the detour and had the opportunity to see what is accurately described as one of the Wonders of the Natural World.

The township of Niagara Falls itself is a good base for a family holiday. The Clifton Hill area is billed as the "Street of fun by the Falls" and there is certainly no shortage of "kid friendly" activities and restaurants. Although I couldnt drag myself away from the falls, for those looking for other activities there is a Ripleys, a Wax museum, a Ferris Wheel, a 4D theatre and a Las Vegas style Magic Show to name a few.

Of course, grown ups are also well catered for with restaurants, casinos and the wine growing region around Niagara by the Lake. Lundys Lane is a shopping outlet just a short drive from the centre of town.

For me though the Niagara Falls themselves are the star of the show, and I can recommend Journey behind the Falls as a wonderful way of getting up close and personal.

    Niagara Falls is certainly high on our list of places to visit in the United States. Your main photograph of the falls certainly looks amazing. Hotel Sheraton indeed looks impressive. ~ho & pang
