    Another of Mother Nature's wonderful pieces of scenery near Niagara Falls. Definitely need to include this in your trip to Niagara Falls, especially since it's so close by.  more »

    Walking distance not exceeding minutes give a beautiful view on the river parking in front of the bridge with the island visit not exceeding half an hour but it's pretty fringe visit Niagara falls.
