USA Today Bucket List

USA Today bucket listNiagara Falls USA and Canada made the USA Today Bucket List of U.S Monuments and Landmarks in a feature named 10 best bucket-list U.S. monuments and landmarks.

The USA Today Bucket List article was written by Larry Bleiberg and was based on locations photographed by Blaine Harrington III and published on July 11th, 2014.

Bleiberg wrote: “Sure, the area is crowded with tourists, casinos and gift shops, but there’s still no denying the power and majesty of the famed falls. “It’s a marvel of nature, and man’s tackiness can’t even ruin it,” Harrington says. The falls consist of three sections, Horseshoe, Bridal Veil and American falls. Visitors can don yellow rain slickers to see the cascade from the bottom on the famed Maid of the Mist excursion tour boats.”

Bucket list tip: Try the region’s famed ice wine, developed from grapes harvested in subzero temperatures.
