5. Niagara Falls, Ontario

Romantic Escape

Why wintertime? Because spray from the falls coats rocks, trees, buildings and the occasional slow-moving tourist with ice, turning the town into a glittering fantasyland. Why the Canadian and not the New York side? Because you get better views of the falls and more lodging and dining choices. Why "ice wine" on restaurant menus? Because this dessert wine, a specialty of the region, practically explodes with flavor -- be sure to sip, not gulp. Why Niagara Falls in the first place? Because its beauty really will take your breath away; 800/263-2988 or tourismniagara.com
