In these challenging times, it is all too easy to lose sight of the fact that we will all be able to enjoy traveling and exploring again. We are certain that time is not too far off and that now is the perfect time to plan for a truly special trip. Now is a great time to do the necessary research to plan things so that when the lockdowns are lifted you are ready to book and go.
Today, we are going to take a look at the Niagara Falls area. After all, a visit to these beautiful waterfalls is something that is on most people´s to-do list.
Book yourself into a special hotel
If you click here you will see that some of the hotels in the area are truly amazing, such as the No. 1 rated Niagara Falls Marriott. Why not book yourself a room that offers you a bird’s eye view of the actual falls.
See the waterfalls from a boat
Some of the boat trips take you so close to the waterfalls that you can almost touch them. If you are staying on the Canadian side, book a trip on the Hornblower. You will circle around the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side and travel right up to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls. They are not as powerful as the Horseshoe Falls, which is why the Hornblower can take you so close to them.
You cannot do this in the winter months. But, when everything reopens, you will be able to do so again during the summer. Although there is a chance that the number of places available will be limited. So, it is wise to book in advance.
Stand next to the base of the waterfalls
Over 130 years ago, someone realized that the caves behind the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls gave tourists the chance to get close and experience the true power of this natural wonder. They built a stairway to give more people access. Today, there is an elevator that takes you down to a tunnel from which you can access the walkways that have been installed along the rock face opposite the Bridal Veil Falls.
Stroll across the Rainbow Bridge
The view from the bridge that connects Canada with New York is amazing. This excellent short video gives you a taste of what you will see and which points to stop off along the way to get the best views. The nice thing is that once you reach the American side you can walk alongside the river and enjoy beautiful natural surroundings.
Treat yourself to lunch at a winery
There are several beautiful wineries located in the countryside surrounding the waterfalls. Most are open to the public and there are plenty of coach tour operators that will take you to them. Once there, you can tour the winery, have a wonderful lunch, and sample their wines. It is a lovely way to get away from the crowds and enjoy the pristine countryside.
If you plan your trip now, the moment everything opens up again you will be able to book. Being ready will enable you to take advantage of the special deals that are bound to be available and make sure that you do not miss out on any of the things you want to do.
