  • The town of Niagara compared with las Vegas, but in small is certainly a very interesting place for tourist quality mainly, the main avenues are characterized by their facades, colourful lights of different designs to recreate the view and call you to mess to buy meet or eat. The main attraction are the Niagara Falls uf uf impress a natural wonder and beautiful if you want to just admire it from the viewpoints you can do it but it is better to board the boat that brings you closer to a few metres and feel the dense breeze that fills you the rostr or cold water be sure to bring your camera or cell phone against water so take your photos as closely as you can the boat takes you. 2 falls side of USA and the largest side of Canada which is the most impressive tour is very safe and enjoyable before tackling give you a breaks wind to protect yourself and not get wet visit I recommend them to you 100%.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
