I LOVE NY Bracket

Congratulations to our bracket winner, Maid of the Mist!

Maid of the mist

We asked you to choose a winner from 16 of our top New York State attractions in the fourth annual I LOVE NEW YORK Bracket. After four rounds and tens of thousands of votes, Maid of the Mist—the famed boat tour that brings you to the base of Niagara Falls—prevailed, joining past Bracket winners Animal Adventure Park (2018), Boldt Castle (2017), and Central Park (2016). Thanks to everyone who voted and showed some love for New York State!

Here's what people are saying about Maid of the Mist... 

I love New York and Niagara Falls is on my bucket list –Carl W., Facebook

Niagara Falls is one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever had. The majesty and wonder is a sight to behold.” –Tammy T., Facebook

"Our 5 year old will definitely remember this forever! This was her destination choice for her summer vacation... and we couldn’t be happier with it!” –Ronnie L., Facebook

It’s one of the most famous boat tours in the world, and Maid of the Mist delivers the thrills. The unforgettable ride takes poncho-clad visitors right to the base of the American Falls, then to the basin of the stunning Horseshoe Falls, for an up-close and personal view of one of the world’s greatest wonders. Maid of the Mist started giving sightseeing tours of the Falls way back in 1885, so taking a ride on this boat is part of a long and cherished tradition—if a wet one!
