The United States can be rightly proud of its many natural wonders that attract visitors in their millions to the country every year. One of the most famous of these is actually shared with the neighbouring country of Canada, the world famous Niagara Falls. Whether visiting on honeymoon or a vacation for a few days or longer, the great tourist infrastructure there ensures that there is a variety of accommodation to choose from. A wonderful option is to stay in a holiday rental house in Niagara Falls. Coming with all the comforts of home, it feels more personal than a sterile hotel room, and the fully fitted kitchen is ideal for those that prefer not to have to eat out for every meal.
it goes without saying that most people on holiday in Niagara Falls will want to spend time visiting the falls themselves, although there are plenty of leisure activities available for those that would like to try them. Fishing and swimming are possibilities here, as are golf, tennis, cycling and hiking. Even frisbee throwing can turn into quite an energetic activity, depending on the group of people involved!
Niagara Falls actually consists of three waterfalls, which are the Horseshoe Falls, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls are actually located on the Canadian side, whilst the other two are on the US side. Perhaps the best and most famous way of seeing them is on the Maid of the Mist boat cruise, which takes passengers directly beneath the falls and into the spray. The falls can also be seen on the Niagara Scenic Trolley, by balloon ride or by helicopter. Each way of seeing them presents a unique perspective and ensures a memorable holiday in Niagara Falls.
For the very best weather, booking self catering accommodation in Niagara Falls during the summer months is the best idea. With daily average high temperatures of 25 degrees between June and September, it compares much better than the daily average lows of -5 degrees experienced during the winter months. Rainfall is spread evenly throughout the year at 80mm, although during the winter months snow can occur instead of rain.
The nearest airport to the holiday rental house in Niagara Falls is Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF). Although over a dozen airlines operate flights out of here, there is unfortunately no direct connection to the UK. Therefore, UK residents will need to organise a connection at somewhere like New York (JFK) in order to make the journey. On arrival in Buffalo, car hire is available at the airport, and will prove to be a great asset during a stay in the area.
