Niagara Falls
in the Wintertime

Niagara Falls is a magnificent sight , especially in mid-winter when everything is beautifully covered in a crystal coating of thick ice. The advantage of visiting Niagara Falls in the winter is that there are no huge crowds to deal wtih and hotel rates are very reasonable. Getting around is not a problem since the streets and sidewalks are kept clear with a natural, environmental-friendly de-icer. The ice formations created around the rocks and base of the falls by the perpetual falling of water is a spectacular sight if one can endure the challenge of the harshness of the Niagara winter cold.
