Niagara Falls is simply amazing. The powerful combination of three separate waterfalls that make up Niagara must be experienced in person to realize their magnificence.
On this 2-day trip, board an Amtrak train from Penn Station in New York City in the morning and travel north via the Hudson River waterfront. Enjoy scenic views while traveling through upstate New York to Niagara Falls, New York. Upon arrival, meet a driver/guide who will lead the way to the waterfalls for the first of many photo opportunities. Then check in to the designated hotel and learn what time to go watch the beautiful laser light show on the falls.
The next morning, begin the day with a Maid of the Mist sightseeing boat cruise. This tour includes a ticket on the famous sightseeing cruise, traveling up close to the edge of the thundering falls.
Then enjoy several hours of shopping and sightseeing. Stroll the city to visit various aerospace and science museums, casinos, observatories, and much more. For the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls, including the American Falls, the clear choice is the Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Extending out dramatically over the Niagara Gorge, this architectural wonder affords unobstructed views of the wild cascades of Niagara Falls, as well as the raging whitewater below.
For aviation enthusiasts, visit the Ira G. Ross Aerospace Museum. This organization is devoted to the efforts of the Western United States during the war years and includes the recently salvaged Bell P-39 Airacobra, one of the principal American fighter aircrafts in service during World War II. It's currently under restoration after more than 50 years resting at the bottom of a lake. For children of all ages, pay a visit to the Niagara Wax Museum of History or the Niagara Science Museum.
After working up an appetite, enjoy VIP seating for a meal at Tony Roma's. A delicious lunch with just a short wait will provide fuel for a short walk to the various casinos for an afternoon of excitement.
At the end of the day, travel with a private driver to the airport for a 45-minute flight back to NYC. Arrive in Midtown Manhattan to conclude the tour.
