Explore These Wonderful Waterfalls

Capture majestic views in your memories (or camera roll) forever.

Niagara Falls

Sure, it’s a bit far, but seriously: How do you write about New York State and gloss over majestic Niagara Falls? For centuries, these famed falls have been a prime destination for nature-lovers, honeymooners, and daredevils the world over. Actually three falls — Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls — with a peak vertical drop of 188 feet, Niagara spills as much as six million cubic feet of water over its crest each minute. Brave the raw power and mighty roar of the falls from an iconic Maid of the Mist cruise, the Hurricane Deck, or Cave of the Winds, at the foot of Bridal Veil Falls, then assuage your unbridled exhilaration at any of the nearby wineries, historic forts, or the region’s other plentiful attractions.

Indian Brook Falls

Garrison

This little trickling beauty features a picturesque waterfall and flat-water pool ensconced in an increasingly not-so-secret gorge. (It’s just as stunning when it freezes in wintertime.)
