The Getaway Guy's Top 3 Spring Getaways..

1. GOAT ISLAND, on the American side,  offers the very best views of Niagara Falls!  Spring is a great time to visit because there are no big crowds...yet!  You won't believe how close to the falls you can get! 

(Find this Getaway on pages 42-43)

2. WATERFALL GETAWAYS are wonderful during Spring! This is the time of year when the waterfalls are really flowing. A few of my favorites falls.... *Grimes Glen Falls, a hidden gem in Naples, N.Y. *Havana Glen Park in Montour Falls. *Watkins Glen State Park with 17 waterfalls in the park's gorge!
3. SKY HIGH AERIAL PARK at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, N.Y. is an adventure of zip lines, cables and the tree tops!  Spring is when the forest comes alive!  (Find this Getaway on pages 86-87)
