Niagara Falls, New YorkJamznb/Shutterstock
Niagara Falls is a bucket list item for many people and summer is a fantastic time to explore this stunning example of nature’s best work. Niagara Falls is actually made of three falls—you can see all of them from the Observation Tower at Niagara Falls State Park on the U.S. side or take to the skies for a view from the cockpit of a helicopter. Plan to get wet as you ride into Horseshoe Falls on the classic Maid of the Mist or get really wet exploring Niagara’s Cave of the Winds. Bring your passport to walk over to the Canada side for a spin on the Niagara SkyWheel. Don’t miss the best places to visit in 2018.
