The mention of “Niagara Falls” invariably summons “Wish You Were Here” postcard images of thunderous cascades as millions of gallons of icy water plummet over a trio of rainbow-arced, mist-shrouded falls.
The iconic Falls were created by the Wisconsin glaciation more than 12,000 years ago - the same forces that shaped the North American Great Lakes. World-famous Rainbow Bridge affords enthusiastic visitors a spectacular view of the breathtaking “rainbow” over the raging waters, while the popular Cave of the Winds tour leads the dauntless into a wild and stormy Mist Zone just inches from the fury of Bridal Veil Falls.
Student groups traveling to Niagara Falls State Park to experience this magnificent world wonder will also want to visit the quaint, nearby town and dedicate a portion of their excursion to exploring the beautiful surrounding region, rich in significant historic interest. Boatloads of intriguing historic landmarks, fabulous area attractions, wonderful accommodations, miles of scenic trails and a variety of exhilarating tours by land, water and air all await travelers to Niagara Falls, and promise the trip of a lifetime!
