We've all seen the falls...on tv, in magazines or a movie. They are quite a bit more breath-taking in person. It's relatively uncomplicated to reach the falls area by car and I'd advise the Canadian side for your hotel stay as the views are superior and the surrounding attractions are much more developed and appealing. A great time that will... More

The falls and the National park area are breathtaking. Its clean, beautiful gardens, amazing views and truly worthy of being a wonder. We were on Canadian side. Above the park is the hotel and casino area, which is absolutely tack and such a shame that businesses have thought it was a good idea to keep building more and more and... More

We just returned from a two night stay at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. All the tours were fantastic! Niagara's Fury - the 4D movie, Journey Behind the Falls, White Water Walk and the Hornblower Falls Cruise ~ seeing the falls from all different views and perspectives was awesome. The entire area is clean and neat with beautiful flowers... More

A definite must see if you are close (Buffalo area or Toronto) it is a day trip for sure. You might want to spend the night or at least stay late to see the falls light up and see the fireworks on various nights of the week. Check the schedule. We did the Maid of the Mist and it was... More

When our friends suggested visiting Niagara Falls, we weren't awfully keen - thinking 'kitsch', 'touristy', 'rip off' etc., we've seen it all before 30 years ago... but when we got there, we were captivated by the drama and beauty of the Falls, and also really enjoyed our dinner with a view of the Falls at The Keg Steakhouse on Fallsview...

I have read a lot of reviews where they have trashed the US side. However, it must say it's not bad. You can still do the Lady of the Mist boat ride which is AWESOME!!!!! and the Cave of Winds, also a must do.... all in a all a trip worth making even if you can't make it to the... More

I lived in Niagara Falls 1986/87 and like to return for the occasional visit. Though it was a much smaller and nicer city in those days :) it is still a nice place to visit. The locals are still nice and a delight to deal with!

Traveled 2 days to see on busy Labor Day weekend and worth it !! Been trying to make it for many years and so glad we did. Definitely a destination spot as to travel there and cross over into Canada you must plan ahead. Southern border crossing easier after holiday as Rainbow bridge backed up. Watch for car lanes, trucks... More

I was glad to visit Niagara Falls finally. I was surprised on how good the views of the falls are, American and Canada. I thought the town to be very tourist with lots of shops if you like that. I had no problems with anyone as all the people I ran into were very nice. Food was good but go... More
