Have you ever wondered what Niagara Falls looks like at night?
During my first visit to Niagara Falls, I stayed in a hotel overlooking them.
At night, I saw the falls glow with colorful lights as fireworks popped off above.
I recently visited Niagara Falls for the first time and was in awe of how massive and striking they were.
While the falls are breathtaking during the day, I think they may be even more beautiful at night.
Niagara Falls is an iconic landmark of massive waterfalls located on the border between the US and Canada. It's also America's oldest state park.

For roughly $500 a night, I stayed in a room with a view of the falls at the Sheraton Fallsview on the Canadian side.
My room came with floor-to-ceiling windows and a door for a better glimpse of Niagara Falls. When I opened the door, I could hear the water crashing down.
I booked this room for prime views of the falls during sunrise and sunset from the comfort of a couch.
But after the sun went down, I got even more spectacular views that I wasn't expecting.

I later learned that these lights are projected onto the water from the Illumination Tower and the Table Rock Centre rooftop. The edge of Horseshoe Falls also has lights on it.
The falls glow every night of the year, and the changing colors represent sunrises, the aurora borealis, rainbows, and sunsets.

The lights are coupled with a fireworks display every night at 10 pm from late May to early October.

Seeing the fireworks show begin from my bed was a happy surprise, and it made the $500 room totally worth it.
