Found on the border between USA and Canada, these huge waterfalls have been declared the "Honeymoon Capital of the World". Indeed it is a romantic and beautiful vacation destination - little can prepare one for the amazing site of Niagara Falls.
Niagra Falls in Style
It does make a great honeymoon or romantic vacation, but children will greatly enjoy the region in addition.
The Canadian side of Niagara is the most geared towards tourism with a large range of hotels to choose from, however it's worth a visit to the American side to experience a very different viewpoint. Sadly, the region is mainly full of chain hotels such as the Mariott, Sheraton and Embassy Suites. A huge range of hotels offer falls view rooms - make sure you ask for a room with a complete view, otherwise you might be disappointed by a view that is only partial.
The Falls are 30 minutes drive from Buffalo Niagara International Airport (USA) or 90 minutes drive from Toronto airport in Canada.
There is also a train service from toronto to Niagara, and onwards to New York City.
Tips for Travelling Onwards
Niagara on the Lake is a pretty, historic town about 20 minutes drive from the falls. Heading further afield, it's easy to travel to either Toronto in Canada, or New York City in USA.
