If you're looking for a winter wonderland, look no further than Niagara Falls in winter. Of course, the majestic waterfalls — often described as a natural wonder of the world — are beautiful anytime throughout the year. But we have to say that we're partial to how they look when they're coated in glorious amounts of ice and snow. For once in our lives, we can be thankful for a deep freeze!
Isn't it wonderful to ooh and ah about a fabulous snowy sight while staying nice and warm inside? We don't know about you, but we highly prefer marveling at these lovely pictures of Niagara Falls in winter while curled up with a cup of hot cocoa near the fireplace any day over actually venturing outside in the bitter cold.

Of course, some brave souls have stepped outside to see these breathtaking views up close. We give them many props — as well as great thanks — for capturing these fantastic images on camera and video.
Though the icy falls are somehow still flowing in the cold, they're stunning to behold as they make their journey down to the base. The water perfectly complements the striking trees, rocks, walls, and railings surrounding them, which are coated in a thick layer of wintry bliss. As if that wasn't magical enough, the mist from the falls actually freezes as it lands on everything around it, according to The Weather Channel.
And it seems like this real-life snow globe that is Niagara Falls in winter isn't slowing its flakes anytime soon. According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected throughout the week, with temperatures dipping as low as the teens and single digits.
As for us, tucked under our cozy blankets and cuddled up with our adorable dogs, we say, "Let it snow!"
