Niagara Falls State Park

by Michelle Miles

On the way back from a trip to Toronto, I stopped at Niagara falls on the American side. I've been there before, but it never gets any less breathtaking! It's amazing that one of the worlds wonders can be so accessible, too. The sidewalks all the way around the falls are accessible. Parking at the falls is not expensive and not too far away so it's not a long, tiring walk. There is also a completely wheelchair accessible viewing tower where you can get a better look at the falls from a little bit further up, but don't look down if you're afraid of heights! We also visited the falls at night, as our hotel was very close. I will include pictures of everything, enjoy! :)
