If you're seeking a magical winter wonderland, look no further than Niagara Falls during the winter. Of course, the majestic waterfalls — often described as a natural wonder of the world — are beautiful anytime during 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 actually be thankful for a deep freeze!
Isn't it wonderful to ooh and ah over 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 during the wintertime while we're 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 only partially frozen, 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 precipitation can actually lead the falls to flow at a slower rate, according to The Weather Channel. Doesn't it remind you of a real-life snow globe?
And it seems like this wonderful winter isn't stopping anytime soon. According to the official website for Niagara Falls, more snow is expected later this week as well as the weekend. As you might imagine, the temperatures are expected to remain rather chilly during this time, too. We hope that everyone who ventures out to take pictures stays comfortable while doing so and gets back inside soon.
Say what you will about winter, but a frosted Niagara Falls certainly is lovely this time of year ❄ #ShareYourWeather @NiagaraFalls— The Weather Network (@weathernetwork) January 17, 2019

As for us, tucked under our cozy blankets and cuddled up with our adorable dogs, we say, "Let it snow!"
