Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls
(4.7/5 based on 20,000+ reviews on the web)
One of North America's most impressive natural attractions, Niagara Falls straddle the border between the United States and Canada, marking the point at which the eponymous river plummets over a prominent escarpment. Two cascades on the U.S. side and one on the Canadian combine to form the most powerful waterfalls in the world, harnessed to produce electricity using a generating system invented by famed scientist Nikola Tesla. Experience the sheer force of the water by taking a boat tour from the base of Horseshoe Falls, or climb to the top the observation tower for a bird's-eye view of the entire region. Niagara Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Niagara Falls Edition.

  • The falls are simply a work of heavenly divine. Everybody was fascinated by the wonder of the falls. 
  • One of the most visited websites in the world. Really impressive the amount of water that comes down from the falls. Takes your breath away. To get to the falls is simple and spectacular especially on the Canadian side. A cruise is a must even if you exit completely soaked. Gorgeous.

  • The falls are spectacular and mesmerizing - natures best gem. Enjoy long walks along the water to Rainbow bridge and Clifton Hills.

  • ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! I never thought I would ever see Niagara Falls & the USA side of the Falls. It is absolutely breathtaking. You could even smell the water from where you are standing, the view is just gorgeous & to see so many other people with smiles on their faces & what not makes me really happy. I love Niagara Falls ❤️❤️❤️ I go there as much as I can.
  • Beautiful, breathtaking view. Better from the Canadian side, but so close on the New York side. I recommend Niagra State Park, which is free to enter. $3 all day trolley pass available. Went in October. Nice enough weather and less crowded
  • First time to see Niagara Falls - The weekend we were there (Sept 16 & 17) was perfect since there were barely any crowds or lines for the tourist attractions (I.e maid of the mist and other tours)... We arrived at the falls around 9:30 or 10- so the earlier time may have played a role in not having to deal with lines. The falls were an amazing sight to behold ... We were in the Niagara Falls State Park area (US side)... If you have time and like to walk - the area is great with paths leading to different vantage points of the falls... each offers its own unique aspect. If you like using the touristy binoculars - be sure to take enough quarters since there are many available to use.
  • Niagara Falls never disappoints when we're looking for a nice day trip or wanting to get away for a weekend. This time through we went down into the cave of the winds. While not exactly a cave, it was interesting to get down below the falls and feel the force of the water on the Hurricane Observation Deck. Be prepared with your waterproof camera however because you will get soaked. We went back to the falls at night to see the lights. My only complaint here is that the observation deck is closed at night.
  • Personally, I like the American side better, less people. We enjoy the falls even in the winter. Don't think the falls are not pretty in the winter. The falls are worth to visit at any time. If you want a more relaxed visit, go the American side....
