Niagara Falls Fourth of July Getaway – 2019

July 3rd thru 6th, 2019

Join the Travel’n Tarheel as we celebrate our nation’s 243rd Birthday in beautiful Niagara Falls.

Day 1  Our route will take us across Fancy Gap and up the West Virginia Turnpike (with a sightseeing stop at the New River Gorge Bridge – second highest in the United States). We overnite in the Pittsburgh area.

Day 2 – This morning we’ll travel across beautiful upstate New York through the vineyard country by way of Buffalo and Grand Isle where we’ll cross the Rainbow Bridge to Spectacular Niagara Falls, Canada! We’ll tour the Niagara Falls area, and stop to take pictures of the Canadian (or Horseshoe) Falls, the American & Bridal Veil Falls. We’ll take a driving tour of the Niagara Parkway where we’ll see the Niagara School of Horticulture, the Hydro Electric Plant, and the famous Floral Clock. Lunch is included atop the Skylon Tower, rising over 800 feet above the falls. We also ride on Hornblower Cruises, the boat cruise that will take us right up to the base of the thundering Canadian falls!  Tonight we’ll go to the observation deck of the Skylon Tower for a spectacular view of the falls (with the colored lights on them) at night!

Day 3 – This will be a very special day.  We’ll be free to just relax and enjoy Niagara Falls. You may want to walk along the Parkway, visit the shops and museums (Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, etc.). On Clifton Hill, visit Maple Leaf Village or ride across the whirlpools on the Spanish aero car! Late afternoon we return to Pennsylvania for overnight.

Day 4 – Today we’ll travel through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia and Virginia as we head home, making  a couple of special sightseeing stops along the way. We’ll arrive home early this evening with lots of fond memories (and pictures) of a great tour to Niagara Falls, Canada!
