We were in Newyork and decided to visit Niagara Falls ( the US side) for 2 days. We did do a lot of research to figure out the optimum time, how to get there etc. Finally decided to go through a tour. One can also drive down to niagara or take the public buses however the last mile connectivity was a challenge.
We took the Take Tours tour and met our tour guide at 8am at the designated spot. And off we were to witness the miracle of nature.
Niagara Falls is a good 7-8hr Bus ride from NYC. Enroute there are some beautiful sights one shouldn’t miss. First stop was the Corning glass museum - a glass museum which also demonstrates the process of glass blowing. After spending 2 hours including lunch we set off to the next spot - Watkins Glen State park. I was amazed by the photos of US state and national parks that I had seen on Instagram and really wanted to visit one. and photos I was super glad we made this stop. A nice, refreshing walk through nature, upto an awesome waterfall and one hour later we felt as refreshed as ever! The state park has a number of walking trails and one can easily spend an entire day here. However, we had to keep moving. But this walk.. Highly recommend!!
Now off to Niagara! Cant contain the excitement!
We reached Niagara to witness the immense power of the Falls at Night. Mesmerizing.. no words at all to describe the beauty. Awestruck! One sees the US side of the falls and across the river you can see the dazzling lights of Canada.. So close, yet so far away.
After spending about an hour clicking photos, we then called it a night to wake up early as we were to ride up to the falls!
