Of the five Great Lakes, the waters from four of them — Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie —will eventually travel through this one spot: Niagara Falls.
Every minute, 40 million gallons of water plunge 20 stories down into a violent froth exploding into a plume of mist and a thunderous roar. It's a magnificent sight that draws thousands of tourists and many newlyweds every year.
If you're considering visiting the falls, one way to cut down on cost while touring the original honeymoon spot is to purchase the "Passport to the Falls," a discount card for food, photos and more within the park as well as money-saving coupons for attractions in the area. You can also enjoy the city's freebies, like the Daredevil Museum, which highlights the risk-takers who have challenged Niagara Falls and features the huge barrels and rubber balls that have taken the plunge.
