If you are visiting New York then you just have to visit Niagara Falls, even if you are just on a weekend break there is no excuse with the Niagara Falls day trip, from New York by air.  The day trip to this magnificent thunderous product of the last ice age is now possible in as little as 12 hours.  With round trips from mid town New York to Upstate, then on to Buffalo airport for a quick transfer to the Falls.

The River Niagara stretches across the Canadian – United States border in both the state of New York and the Province of Ontario, carved by relentless ice sheets 18,000 years ago.  Niagara Falls is the second largest water fall in the world to the Victoria Falls of South Africa.  The awesome power of the combined 750,000 gallons of water dispersed over the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls every second makes this an inspiring place to visit.

Soccer City, Johannesburg - Stadium for South Africa's World Cup 2010 FinalJohannesburg, South Africa is playing host to the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The city is so incredibly humbled by this honor that they’ve renamed their FNB Stadium in Soweto and are now calling it Soccer City. Unlike most of the usual sports stadiums around the globe, football (soccer) stadiums are a bit larger – Soccer City in particular seating 94,700 fans.

Soccer City is a beautiful stadium and up to par in terms of being football-ready. However, it wasn’t always suited to play host to the world’s biggest sporting event.
