New York at a Glance

New York City, New York - Compare Hotels

New York City, New York

New York City is divided into five boroughs: Brooklyn; Bronx; Manhattan; Queens; and Staten Island. But when most people think of New York City, they're thinking of Manhattan. That's the island where you will find most of the tourist attractions, convention centers and the greatest concentration of eateries and nightlife.

Whatever your taste, you can find it in New York. Long a mecca for travellers from far and wide, the Big Apple offers accommodations, dining pleasures, business opportunities and entertainment for every wallet and schedule.

Christmas is a spectacular time to hit this vibrant city, when it's decorated to a tee and as aesthetically pleasing as a picture postcard. The streets are bustling, shoppers are making mad last-minute dashes and the weather is cold - as it should be this time of year.

Niagara Falls, New York - Compare Hotels

Niagara Falls, New York

Niagara Falls hotels abound in both countries, with the favourable exchange on the American dollar, Canadians may opt to stay put and Americans may consider crossing the bridge. That having been said, accommodations are more plentiful on the Canadian side and may be preferable if a view of the falls is imperative - many Ontario hotels offer a falls view.

Niagara Falls is actually two cities - one in Ontario, Canada, the other in New York - joined by the bridge across the Niagara River. The Canadian side claims the Horseshoe Falls, aptly named for its curved formation. The American side, slightly higher than the Canadian, runs straight across with Goat and Luna Island separating it from the smallest of the falls; the Bridal Veil.

Niagara Falls has been a premier honeymoon destination for over a hundred years. Expect large crowds of newlyweds in June. As the falls themselves are the prime attraction, it’s best to avoid a vacation during the dead of the winter.
