Audio Journeys explores the US's first tourist attraction, Niagara Falls, New York. Niagara Falls is one of the most visited natural wonders in the world.
Now one of the most-visited natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls once hardly had any visitors to admire its spectacular beauty, until 1885, when the state bought the area from the Porter family and turned it into a park - the oldest state park in the country, as a matter of fact. Patricia L. Lawrence tours the falls with a local historian, discussing the origins of the falls during the Ice Age, and shares interesting facts such as how the American Falls at Niagara dried up for a few months during the 1960s. Both previous and future visitors to Niagara Falls will find this travelogue illuminating and enjoyable.
