The light display includes archways along the entire length of the spectacular light display with fish swimming overhead and spectacular light tunnels to drive through. Military tributes to the region’s strong Armed Forces community are featured prominently throughout the display.

Cape Henry Lighthouse

While the original Cape Henry Lighthouse is the 4th oldest lighthouse in the country, it was the first lighthouse authorized by the U.S. government, dating from 1792. It was the first federal construction project authorized by President George Washington after the Revolutionary War. In 1881, a newer lighthouse was constructed 350 feet from the original. The Cape Henry Lighthouse has long served to protect and guide vessels entering and leaving the Chesapeake Bay. Today two lighthouses stand at Cape Henry, guardians to the gateway of the Chesapeake Bay. They have been placed on the US National Register of Historic Places and have been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

You may have seen the Falls before but you’ve never seen them quite like this. Hold onto your heart and keep your eyes wide open because you’re in for the thrill of a lifetime! The legendary Niagara Falls boat tour takes you as close as possible to the thundering roar, awesome power and amazing mist of the mighty Falls!

Journey Behind the Falls

To stand at the heart of Niagara, you’ll first need to descend 150 feet and explore 130-year-old tunnels through the bedrock, but you’ll feel the thunderous vibration of the Horseshoe Falls long before you see them. The observation deck at the foot of this 13-story-tall wonder will leave you breathless (and maybe a little bit wet), but don’t forget the viewing portals cut straight through the rock, offering a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down in front of you.

Skylon Tower

The Skylon Tower is Niagara Falls most famous restaurant.  The restaurant offers fine dining 775 feet above the Falls!  You can see the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls all from the restaurants and observation deck. Visibility from Observatory on a clear day is 80 miles .

White Water Walk

Take a walk like no other, along a boardwalk at the very edge of one of the world’s wildest stretches of whitewater! Marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature, and see how the deep and narrow Great Gorge was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough–the sight will take your breath away!

Whirlpool Aero Car

Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You’ll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool, sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

Butterfly Conservatory

Located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, visitors to the Butterfly Conservatory are transported to a tropical paradise full of lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls and thousands of vibrantly colored butterflies. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation.

Floral Clock

The intricate designs on the face of the Floral Clock are created with up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants and are changed twice each year. The planted face of the Floral Clock is maintained by the Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism inside is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro.

Twain wrote his most important works during the years he lived there, including Adventures of Huckleberry FinnThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.

Gillette Castle State Park

Atop the most southerly hill in a chain known as the Seven Sisters, William Hooker Gillette, noted actor, director, and playwright, built this one hundred and eighty-four acre estate, the Seventh Sister. The focal point of his effort was a twenty four room mansion reminiscent of a medieval castle. It looks like a medieval fortress, but a step inside the stone castle reveals the built-in couches, table trackway, and woodcarvings that all point to the creative genius that was William Gillette.

Purchased by the State of Connecticut in 1943 from the executors of Mr. Gillette’s will, Gillette Castle and the adjoining property with its fine woodlands, trails, and vistas are now administered for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

Goodspeed Opera House Show – “Gypsy”

Goodspeed’s beginnings date back to 1963 when it opened its doors as a professional musical theatre in a historic  building on the banks of the Connecticut River in East Haddam. Under the direction of Michael Price from 1968 to 2014, Goodspeed transformed from a struggling entity into a non-profit arts organization with a mission.  Goodspeed mounts both new and newly revived musicals each year on their main stage at the Opera House.

Gypsy” – Here she is, world! Momma Rose, the ambitious stage mother determined to drive her daughters toward stardom, takes center stage in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. And with her comes a parade of iconic tunes that conjure the joys and heartaches of show business: “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Together Wherever We Go,” and more. The brassy masterpiece about vaudeville and burlesque lights up the Goodspeed stage for the very first time. Curtain up!

Then, clad in a bright yellow poncho you follow a series of wooden walkways to the famous “Hurricane Deck”. As you stand at the railing, you are a mere 20 feet (6 meters) from the billowing torrents of Bridal Veil Falls.

Haunted Happenings

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Today, members of the modern Pagan and Witch communities have a home in Salem, where Samhain is celebrated each October recognizing the end of the harvest season and the coming of winter. The City’s modern witches have the unique opportunity of being able to share their beliefs and celebrations with both locals and out of town guests who come to celebrate the Halloween season in Salem.

Salem Witch Museum

The Salem Witch Museum is a museum in Salem, MA about the Witch Trials of 1692. The museum is based on the actual documents of the trials.  A multi-sensory presentation including 13 life-sized stage settings that recreates the horrible and truthful events known as the Salem Witch Trials.
