What can or need be said - it's a must see - at night, the falls are illuminated making for spectacular viewing - the only problem is one I have encountered before at the Falls - TRAFFIC - with the proximity of the border crossing to Fallsview Avenue, it can get pretty backed up. While we were driving to the... More

You hear a lot about the falls and wonder if it's worth the trip, it is! I could stare at the volume of water moving over the falls all day. There are a lot of ways to see it, from the US side, the Canadian side, high, low, boat, bridge, etc. The restaurant in the tower overlooking it is great... More

The Canadian side was absolutely stunningly beautiful. While the US side was cheaper (average about $7 pp) for the attractions, the US side looked like a ghetto. Made me embarrassed to be a US citizen.

YES...the Canada side is better..I hate to admit it but it is...but parking is hefty, especially if you are only making a quick trip...so try behind Bird Kingdom...it is hourly so you can pay only what you need (2.00 per hour)..you can pay with cash or a credit card...and one mile from Table Rock Visitor Center, farthest point.

The amazing thing about the American Falls are all the rocks at the bottom. Be sure to read up about the history of the US Falls, the story about when they were "shut off" for examination, and why there is such a rocky outcropping at the bottom. It's really fascinating!

As with many places, the Canadian side of the Falls, with its exchange rate and 16 or 18 percent sales tax, is horribly overpriced; notwithstanding, we found lots of things to do with our time and wish we had had a little more time to spend!

Always breathtaking. Felt so honoured to live within an hour drive of this wonder of the world. Great phototaking area. Lovely tall trees along the path. Very tiny sidewalk along the road. Be sure to ask someone to take your photo. It’s too misty to take a good selfie.

Niagara Falls (Canada and US) are awesome works of God. Great view and experience the dew drops that is sort of like a heavy rainfall. An experience worth remembering.
