BOOKS AND VIDEOS MAKE A GREAT SOUVENIR
Some books and videos that you will surely enjoy if you have an interest in Niagara Falls, one of the great destinations of the world. To help you, I have comments below on each.
First, all of these are under $20, and most under $10. In today’s world, that’s a bargain.
—>Moon Travel Guides: Here you get coverage of both the American and Canadian sides, plus worthwhile day trips including Niagara-on-the-Lake, Buffalo, and wine country. Lots of full-colour photos and detailed maps throughout, curated for romantic getaways, budget traveling and family trips. It’s a lot more than just looking at water cascading over rock. You can take a thrilling zipline above the Niagara River, or get an inside look at the falls from a tunnel dug into the gorge walls. Embark on an unforgettable boat tour, voyaging past American and Bridal Veil Falls, into the misty, roiling waters beneath Horseshoe (hop on board in the evening to catch a fireworks show!). Stroll downtown Buffalo, or sip your way through wine country. Hike through beech tree forests, ride the towering SkyWheel, and enjoy a romantic dinner over sunset views of the falls. It’s a good guide written by a local by the name of Joel Dombrowski. Some important information on getting here and getting around, crossing the US-Canada border, weather, wildlife, and safety including travel tips for seniors and visitors with disabilities.
