  • What can I say. AMAZING! A once on a lifetime experience for the couple from Kentucky! We will visit again for sure! You have to see it at least once in your lifetime.

  • Between Niagara Falls and Horseshoe Falls, the second is much bigger and more impressive (both from afar, and when taking the boat ride). Best views are from Canada and from Terrapin Point on Goat...

  • We happened to be here on one of the most perfect days you could ever visit. We saw the falls in all its beauty and wonder. If you want to experience a different kind of high without intoxication, just watch the falls roll over. The rush of the water, the thundering fall, and then the cool mist splash all over you, it’s unbelievable! Whenever I’ve been to the falls, there has always been crowds of people, so be prepared.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful. The Canadian side is definitely the better choice when it comes to viewing the Falls. There’s also so much to do around the area. I love how close you can get even just viewing it on the sidewalk.
  • Breathtaking. The falls is amazing, the view is to die for. Getting the mist spray on your face feels insanely magical. There are a lot of nice places for pictures and it is simply spectacular. Due to the long stretch of the horseshoe falls, there is almost always space to get a nice angle for pictures. Not only is the view amazing, the Niagara Parks have a lot of attractions nearby only with a short bus ride. I would highly recommend visiting the falls to anyone, it truly is amazing.
  • Absolutely mind-blowing. The mere scale of the falls and watch the ginormous amount of water falling down every second is an experience in itself. The place has been very well developed, at least on the Canadian side with amazing viewpoints. If you can manage, a weekday (even evening) is the best time to be. During summers there are fireworks at 10PM every day.
  • Parking can be found for $5 for 10 minutes walking distance away. Once you get there, highly recommend the Whistle Blower Boat ride. I could not take photo near the Horseshoe Falls due to massive mists. They will give you a rain poncho with the price of the ride. My kids loved it.
