The Drummond Hill cemetery is famously known as the site of the Battle of Lundy's Lane (just north of the cemetery). In 1814, the site witnessed the fierce battle between the Americans and the British, and was named in honor of General Gordon Drummond. A soldier's monument was erected here in 1895 and the bronze plaque with the names of the deceased was added in 1938. Lundy's Lane Historical Museum conducts tours of Drummond Hill Cemetery every weekend of October. Tours fill up quickly, so make sure you have your reservations in advance.

If you're tired of the sunshine and the roar of the Falls, why not try walking in total darkness while scary monsters leap out at you? That's the gist of this haunted house, where you never know what will come at you next and what will send you screaming towards the exit. But don't worry, you simply yell out "screamers" and the ordeal is over; you'll simply join thousands of others on the Chicken List.

It all began 12,000 years ago when a huge trench was carved to create Niagara Falls, spectacular natural wonder. At the time, the Falls were about 11 kilometers (seven miles) down river in the Lewiston-Queenston area. In their present position, the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side and the American Bridal Veil Falls are eroding at a fast rate. Together, they pour about 60,000 cubic meters (200,000 cubic feet) of water every second over the brink. Come the winter holiday season, the Falls are beguilingly decked out for the annual Winter Festival of Lights.
