Niagara Falls is located on the Niagara River where Lake

Erie drains into Lake Ontario and features the Horseshoe

Falls and the adjacent American Falls. The Niagara Falls

form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world

and has a vertical drop of more than 165 feet (50 m) with

the Horseshoe Falls being the most powerful of the two.

Niagara Falls forms the international border between

Canada and the USA and is located between the twin cities

of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara Falls, New York. The

current rate of erosion is approximately 1 foot per year and

it is estimated that 50,000 years from now - the remaining

20 miles to Lake Erie will have been eroded and the falls will

cease to exist. Niagara Falls visits rose sharply in 1953 after

the release of Niagara, a movie starring Marilyn Monroe

and Joseph Cotten. Later in the 20th century, the falls were

a featured location in 1980s movie Superman II.

The Falls are best viewed from the Canadian side of the

Niagara River, where the Niagara Parkway runs alongside

the River. The Fallsview Casino and shopping complex on

the hill next to Murray Street also presents an excellent

vantage point and is well worth a visit, together with a trip

up the Skylon Tower. No Visit to Niagara would be complete

without a journey on the famous Maid of the Mist and a

walk through the caves in "A Journey Behind the Falls". In

both cases you are supplied with a blue mac as you will get

wet without one. There are also a couple of water parks

in Niagara Falls which are well worth a visit. Clifton Hill

is one of the major tourist promenades in Niagara Falls,

Ontario. This area contains a number of gift shops, wax

museums, haunted houses, restaurants, hotels and themed

attractions. For visitors, particularly families and teenagers,

it is a major amusement area and centre for night life.

A BRIEF HISTORY

This corner of Canada has lots of history as it was where

the Americans fought in 1812 for supremacy over the

British, particularly around Niagara On the Lake. Brock's

Monument is a 56 metre (185 ft) column atop Queenston

Heights, dedicated to Major General Sir Isaac Brock, one

of Canada's heroes of the War of 1812. Brock is interred at

the monument's base, on the heights above the battlefield,

where he fell during the Battle of Queenston Heights. The

combined British, Canadian, and First Nation forces were

eventually victorious over the Americans.

A visit to this area would also not be complete without a visit

to Niagara on the Lake, just down river from the falls on the

shore of Lake Ontario. This was the original capital of Canada

and is separated from the USA by the Niagara River. Niagara on

the Lake is the most picturesque town you will ever see with

pristine sidewalks, manicured flower beds and vintage pastel

coloured colonial buildings. It looks as if it has been created

by Disney, but it is very real and a huge tourist attraction.

There are lots of gift and craft shops here as well as three

theatres and some great restaurants. This marks the gateway

to the fruit orchards and wine growing regions of Ontario

with its famous ice wine made from frozen grapes. Look out

for the exciting Jet Boat Tours based here, which take you up

the Niagara River towards the falls, through the rapids and

the mighty whirlpool. There are both dry and very, very wet

versions from which to choose!

AMTRAK MAPLE LEAF SERVICE

between Niagara Falls & Manhattan. The journey takes

you through the lush greenery of Upstate New York past

the Finger Lakes region, Adirondack Mountains, Cranberry

Lakes and through some major historic landmarks. The

history along the route is an intriguing mix of early

European settlers trading with native Mohawk Indians and

some big names in American corporate history such as

GEC, Kodak and Xerox. Perhaps opt for a holiday in the Fall

(Autumn) when the air is crisp and the foliage is turning

a magnificent array of colours, from russet to orange, red

and yellow.

The train departs Niagara Falls at approx 1030 and arrives

in Manhattan at New York Penn Station under Madison

Square Garden on 33rd St at approx' 2145. This service

takes just over 11 hours, including approx 2 hours for

immigration and passport control at the border as the train

crosses the Niagara River from Ontario to New York. The

actual journey time is just over 9 hours. There is no Amtrak

ticket desk at the train station in Niagara Falls Ontario.

When the train pulls into the station, the conductor will

enter the station building and hand out tickets to those

who have pre-booked their journey. The train has very

comfortable recliner seats in both coach class (reserved

carriages) and business class. Both classes of seat have lots

of space and picture windows. Passengers will benefit from

the snack car which serves hot drinks, snacks and alcoholic

beverages. Towards the second half of the journey popular

items begin to run out. SINGLE CRUISERS

This ship has specially designed interior studios with single

cruisers in mind. They have been priced at a really affordable

level, plus there is an exclusive Studio lounge and bar for

single studio cruisers to meet fellow passengers.

NIAGARA FALLS

If you think Canada and Niagara Falls are going to be cold and full of honeymooners - think again! Adults, couples and children are equally mesmerized by the awesome splendour

of the falls; plus holidays to this part of the world are a surprising treat with an amazing range of things to do. The falls are an absolute sight to behold and one that is a "must see"

experience - the memory of which will live on for years to come. Niagara Falls is the perfect destination throughout the year with weather which truly reflects the seasons - with hot

balmy days in the summer, the myriad of colours in the autumn, the frosty freshness of winter and the relatively short, budding season of spring.
