World famous Niagara Falls, destination point for honeymooners, barrel-riders, artists and photographers -- straddles the U.S./Canadian border just north of Buffalo.
Its attractions range from the natural wonders of the falls to a honky-tonk atmosphere in some of the shopping areas.
Daytime views of the Falls are fun to see, and light shows focusing on the cascades at night are worth angling for good vantagepoints.
Pedestrian traffic across the bridge to the Canadian side once was fairly casual. Now, under increased security, vehicle and pedestrian traffic can sometimes be held up by Customs inspections.
