Description

In the winter, you'll feel raindrops on your head. In the summer, you'll feel raindrops on your head. And even when it's bright and cloudless, you'll feel raindrops on your head...in Niagara Falls. In fact, you'll quickly realize that the hottest style in Niagara Falls is a bright blue poncho. It's an experience that will last a lifetime as it's impossible to fully comprehend the majestic beauty of more than six million cubic feet of water surging over the crest line every minute at high speeds without seeing it firsthand. Although most people spend the majority of their time exploring the falls both on land and from ferries, the town also offers an unbelievable amount of historic museums and attractions, as well as explorable parks and caves. And outdoor recreation rounds out any trip to Niagara, with hiking, biking, fishing, and camping available for your pleasure.

Really a unique experience. I didnt care much for anything else but the actual falls. Gambling was good too
Ben
It's something everyone should experience. Definitely take the ferry ride that takes you right up to the falls.

This place is so beautiful. We had such a great time here when we visited. Not only do the falls have a lot to offer, but on the Canadian side, there is so much to do in the downtown area. We visited a wax museum, Hershey store, Boston Pizza, Hard Rock Cafe, and other tourist-type places. The falls were by far the highlight of the trip. I just wish I could have talked my husband into getting on the Maid of the Mist!
Billi
This famous landmark is a must visit. You should go on the Maid of the Mist boat tour, where you get closer to the bottom of the falls, and it's stunning!
