At last, summer is upon us! While we can all use some leisure time to soak up the sunshine this time of year, why not take advantage of the summer nights as well? After all, experiencing a place at night is a truly different experience than during the day, especially when it is illuminated magically with lights. For those who are planning vacations, near or far, we’ve picked a few of our favorite famous sites to visit that are just as wondrous at night as they are during the day.
Niagara Falls is one of the most well-known tourist destinations in North America. The three waterfalls are majestic during the daytime, but at night, the Falls are lit up in all the colors of the rainbow. Visitors can experience the stunning beauty of the Niagara as it’s illuminated by 21 Xenon lights. Each Xenon spotlight used to light up the Falls has a brilliance of 250,000,000 candlepower. Additionally, the Falls are often times lit up in special colors to honor different causes, charities, and nonprofits.
One of the America’s most symbolic national monuments, the Statue of Liberty was a gift to the United States from France to honor 100 years of friendship. Located on Liberty Island, Lady Liberty is visited by approximately four million visitors each year. Spectators can plan ahead to tour the pedestal and even the crown of the statue for views of the New York Harbor. Recently, the Statue of Liberty was outfitted with a new system of ground lights which uses LEDs to brightly shine on the statue; this new system is also expected to reduce energy consumption. Visitors can experience the magificence of Lady Liberty at night aboard NYC’s water taxi boat.
While you may not have an internationally recognized monument in your backyard to illuminate, choosing the right lights makes a big difference. Visit your local Batteries Plus Bulbs to check out all of the options available to create a perfect summer lighting experience.
