Day 3

NIAGARA FALLS, USA • US OBSERVATION TOWER • MAID OF THE MIST • CAVE OF THE WINDS • DINNER OVERLOOKING THE FALLS:

Off to spend the day enjoying the classic North American landmark - Niagara Falls, USA. We arrive at America’s Oldest State Park, Niagara Falls State Park where we start exploring the area by taking the elevator to the top of the U.S. Observation Tower. Extending out dramatically over Niagara Gorge, this architectural wonder affords unobstructed views of the wild cascades of Niagara Falls. Next we take the elevator to the base of the gorge to experience the raging whitewater as we board the world famous Maid of the Mist for an up-close view of the American and Canadian Falls. We will literally be covered in the mist. Don’t worry you will be furnished with a raincoat! While we’re a little wet, we’ll take a journey behind the American Falls at the unique Cave of the Winds giving us a very up-close view of Bridal Veil Falls. This evening a special dinner overlooking the falls is included. The view is breathtaking! (D)

From here we travel to Lockport, NY, where we enjoy an included lunch before boarding the Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruise.
