  • One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. Must visit place if you are nearby. Don't forget to get watch during day time time as well as night ti.e when the fall is lit with colorful lights.
  • (Canadian side) Going in the winter/spring, it's much less crowded. Because of that, some of the regular tourist attractions are closed so check beforehand if you are looking to do something you usually do in the summer. Parking was pretty good, the main lot is pretty much across the street from the falls. It was $20 and they gave you a nice little tour book. Although, if it were summer that lot will be very busy. You'll probably have to walk from the ones farther away.
  • Beautiful views of a natural wonder. It speaks for itself. Be sure to come at night as well, the light show is beautiful.
  • Incredibly beautiful views. My only gripe is there were too many people and buildings. It makes me wonder what it was like before it was touched by man.
  • It can get a little wet and misty when you get to this point so its good to get some photos before you reach Horseshoe falls. Night time the falls are lighted with coloured lights which offers another opportunity for some great photos. Its worth seeing the falls at night time and you also get to view the fireworks.
