Straddling the border between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls delivers water with the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. Formed by receding glaciers of the last ice age, the famous falls consist of three sets of waterfalls: the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Falls. Their natural beauty draws millions of visitors each year. You can view the falls from decks, vista points, and trails of Niagara Falls State Park. For the full experience, consider buying the park's inclusive package, which includes a Maid of the Mist boat ride and a trip to within feet of the Falls at the Cave of the Winds, as well admission to the park attractions Niagara Adventure Theater, Aquarium of Niagara, and Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. Consider a meal at the restaurant on Goat Island overlooking Horseshoe Falls, which are one-third in the United States and two-thirds in Canada. Plan to see Niagara Falls and other attractions that appeal to you using our Niagara Falls trip itinerary builder.

  • This place is well worth a visit because of it's gorgeous nature! I wouldn't recommend going to the town it self though... Now, I was here a little bit "off-season" so it might be different in the sum...  more »
  • A spectacular place. to see at least one time in your life! Let me start by saying a speech is sfato a myth: the falls are accessible easily even without a tour of 300 €! When we informed to make the falls from New York in one day they said we were crazy, maybe it's true what's days are numbered is not impossible! Let me start by saying that there are two types of tours ranging from 300 € per person to rise: the first is by bus of two days with overnight; the second is by plane on a day I was my boyfriend got a workaround with 34 € per person round trip we made New York the most Buffalo bus to the waterfalls. We left at midnight from New York (we bought a bus ticket to buffalo to € 20 with two months in advance) we drove to buffalo to stop downtown at 8.30 and took the 40 LINE that stops at waterfalls and l OK... all we paid per person. From there everyone does what he wants between excursion ferry and possibly the overnight, us because we had the clock we took the two first bus to Niagara falls (always the 40 line terminus downtown buffalo) and at 17 with only 10 € we left for New York, arriving at all Terminal 1 at night. An ordeal made with so little time but everyone can get organized as you want ... but definitely more economic analysis of 300 € requested by tour operator! Good luck

  • 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....
