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.

  • Most of the photos you see of the Falls look basically the same. On my trip, I was impressed with how much mist is created by them, and how it seems to float so far into the distance as if it were ste...  read more »
  • Don't expect a beautiful city, the beautiful here is the nature. The downtown seemed deserted with a few homes raided. A few restaurants near the Park.

  • 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....
  • The falls are beautiful and impressive. But around it there an extreme amount of tourist attractions that take advantage of the falls and have nothing to do with it. If you are expecting a very natural and wild place. It's not like that. It is worth a visit but it is not what people imagine
  • The falls themselves are beautiful and a must see at least once in your life. That being said get there early....skip breakfast and get there early! The lines fill up insanely fast so unless you feel like spending around an hour waiting in line with droves of tourists from all over the world get there early. My best recommendation is start on the American side, do Maid of the Mist and Cave of Winds first, then walk around the rest of the park. Make your way across the rainbow bridge and enjoy the falls from the Canadian side. If you aren't sick of fighting your way through foreigners yet and haven't been sucked into the tacky Vegas like strip, the nightly fireworks show and illuminated falls are a must.
  • Beautiful! Mesmerizing! Enchanting! The rainbow in the "Cave of the Wind" was unbelievably close and just magical! It turned up in the photos! Picture Tip: exchange cameras with other tourists. "Let me shoot a couple for you and maybe you can do the same for me". You'll be surprised at how many people will gladly accept your proposal. They provide ponchos and sandals.
  • Great place to see Gods creation. Hellish tourist trap though! Didn't bother me but it bothered my wife. I come from a city/beach life where my wife comes from an urban life. I recommend eating at Rainforest Cafe for good food and services at somewhat reasonable prices. Avoid the discount trap given out for Keg/Ruth steakhouse restaurants.
