Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls

(4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • My wife and I took the Maid of the Mist tour 20 years ago. I couldn't wait to go back. This time we took our 2 teenagers, and it was even better then I remembered. Even our moody 19 year old had fun!

  • 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....
