There is no doubt that Niagara Falls is a world famous spot,located in the United States and Canada border,more and more Niagara Falls bus tours from US and Canda here,every summer attracts a large number of tourists to pilgrimage.Originally expected in the autumn of 2014 when the north,but because of that year under the snow buffalo,had to give up.2015 summer vacation finally have the opportunity to see Niagara Falls magnificent style.The following year in May,accompanied by visiting parents once again set foot on the land of Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls State Park is the first established state park in the United States,starting from the Buffalo along the I-190 Expressway to the north,passing through the Grand Island(tolls),about half an hour by car to arrive.Personal advice If you are using Google map navigation,you can set the destination to Goat Island(below the right side of the island),because there are a public parking lot,few people stop,and parking for as long as 10 yuan a day.If the destination is set to Niagara Falls State Park,it is often possible to provide incorrect location guidelines,plus that near the road signs are not clear,it is easy to"mistakenly stop"the private operation of the parking lot,parking is not cheap.
Niagara Falls State Park has two places to play:Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds.Have seen a lot of travel are strongly recommended to buy Discovery Pass(adult ticket 45 yuan),because it contains five attractions tickets(Maid of the Mist,Cave of the Winds,Niagara Adventure Theater,The Niagara Gorge Discovery Center,Aquarium of Niagara And Niagara Scenic Trolley),and Niagara Scenic Trolley travels indefinitely,Discovery Pass is sold from the end of May to the end of October each year.However,in fact,few people will go to Maid of the Mist and other attractions other than the Cave of the Winds.If the tickets for the two spots are purchased separately,the total amount is 18.25+17=35.25,10 yuan,so to see the needs of the individual.(From the visitor center to Goat Island about ten to fifteen minutes,take the garden car is not necessary)
There are many park yard stations in the park that offer people to different attractions.There is a parking lot on Goat Island near the Cave of the Winds and the other is near Three sister islands and Parking lot 3.The garden car travels in one turn,clockwise around the park,and there is a bus about five to ten minutes.In the journey,the car will have a brief introduction to some of the park attractions.
Maid of the Mist is located at the bottom of the Observation Tower(the green studs in the figure below)at the Observatory's entrance.A ticket booth,check the ticket.Observation Tower is one of Niagara Falls State Park's best places to watch the waterfall.
Take the elevator to the bottom of the ferry,the staff will be issued to each person a raincoat.Standing on the pier to see the Canadian side of the boat.It is worth mentioning that if you want to take pictures with the camera friends to pay attention to protect the camera,a lot of waterfalls is likely to make the camera damp.In addition,it is recommended to start standing on the edge of the top of the ship,so close to the waterfall can really feel its power.
The whole trip takes about 30 minutes and will go through all waterfall in Niagara Falls.Niagara Falls can be said to be a waterfall group consisting of three waterfalls,American Falls(left),Bridal Veil Falls(right)and Horseshoe Falls.The first two waterfalls are located in the United States,most of the Horseshoe Falls in the United States in Canada.The boat will go through the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls before returning to Horseshoe Falls.
As the ship slowly approached the Horseshoe Falls,the water also increased,like a shower,where the vision is white.From the Canadian boat,the raincoat of the tourists is red,the US side of the raincoat is dark blue.The ring-billed gulls of the nest are particularly spectacular on the waterfall.
Horseshoe Falls is the largest of the three waterfalls,with a width of 792.4 meters and a height of 50.9 meters,equivalent to 17 floors.Niagara Falls is located in the middle of Niagara River,where Niagara River flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.
In the afternoon,you can see the beautiful rainbow on the Horseshoe Falls.
Risking the camera was wet,I still take it out from the raincoat,close look at the waterfall.A lot of water from the head,no wonder to name the maid of the fog.
In the nineteenth century,many factories used Niagara River's abundant and turbulent river power generation.In the late 1860s,a group of environmentalists advocated the protection of Niagara Falls and began a series of Free Niagara movements,when the architect was the architect of New York Central Park,Frederick Law Olmsted,after 15 years of efforts,finally established the first US state park,Niagara Falls State Park.
If there is time,you can walk around the boat by the trail,although the trail is not long,but close to feel the American Falls torrent shock.
There is an observation deck Luna Island between American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls.
Standing on the Luna Island,overlooking the attractions to be introduced--Cave of the Winds.
Cave of the Winds In Goat Island,take a walkway to the side of the building to bring sandals,the staff will give a plastic bag,so that visitors can put the shoes on the inside.After the facelift,you can line up to take the elevator,down to reach the bottom of the waterfall,receive raincoats.
In short,the Cave of the Winds is a natural spa,enjoying a strong water column from 50 meters high,and some places where water is directly on the trail,very cool and refreshing.
Early summer hours,a group of newly born ring gulls cubs,kept from the nest stuck his head.Where the ring gulls are not afraid of people,and even some individuals directly under the railing under the railing nest eggs.Sometimes the helicopters will fly in groups.
If you just did not wet the boat,the Cave of the Winds would be soaked,and the water would even penetrate the clothes from the raincoat.
The more fog up the farther,although only three of the smallest waterfall,but has been very alarming.
Cave of the Winds can watch the magnificent views of Niagara Falls very closely,rolling through the flood,the turbulence hit large rocks,the sound of the thundered.
Hurricane Deck(hurricane platform)is the Cave of the Winds trail the most exciting place,like a hurricane struck in general,standing on the platform simply can not open his eyes,even breathing all feel the water filled the entire nasal cavity.
Niagara Falls State Park is not very large,but Niagara Falls is really spectacular,it is recommended to arrive at noon,arrived the tourist center or near the park dining,experience the above attractions,the evening walk the park walkway,or Sitting on the Luna Island to enjoy the"three thousand feet down the river,suspected Galaxy nine days",the evening will be from Canada to light on the waterfall,you can view from the Observation Tower.Also reminded that the proposed visit do not bring too many things,will not be easy to carry.
If traveling by car,personal advice can be made in the evening,drove to Lake Ontario or Lake Erie near the state park to enjoy the sunset,about 20-40 minutes or so.Lake Ontario's little noise in the daytime waterfall,replaced by the calm and peaceful of the Great Lakes.
Look at the land of Canada.Many people come here to camp picnic,ride a bike tour lake,and sit on the shore to chat.
The beautiful scenery of Lake Erie has been mentioned in Cleveland,and there are several good places to visit near Buffalo.Lake Erie's lake is bigger and more stunning than Lake Ontario.
Under the sunset,the tired birds are homing.
