  • The trails are amazing and beautiful, and easy to follow using the map and colour coded scheme. You can't get much better than this park to get up close and personal with the Niagara river, whirlpool,...  more »
  • Wished it was better marked but we did find our way down the banks of the whirlpool. Great perspective after riding above in the Aerocar. Short hike, but significant elevation change - bring water.  more »
  • A somewhat difficult hike down into the gorge, put you face to face with the river as it passes through class 6 rapids.  more »

Where to stay in Niagara Falls

The city bordering Canada's most famous attraction offers a wide range of accommodations, with competition keeping prices surprisingly low. You'll pay a premium for views of the falls, with most of the prime real estate right by the star attraction controlled by major international hotel chains. Most sit along Niagara Parkway, which fronts the river. If you're looking for something nearby but still affordable, check the options along Victoria Avenue--you won't have a view of the falls, but you'll be just minutes from the spectacular attraction.
