About
The crashing waters of Niagara Falls—comprising two American falls and one Canadian—are truly a sight to behold. Get up close on a boat ride (be prepared to get soaked!), enjoy amazing aerial views from the Skylon Tower or on a helicopter tour, stroll along the White Water Walk, or hit the Journey Behind the Falls attraction that offers views of the falls from below and behind. Adventure seekers can also go zip-lining, jet-boating, hiking and cycling with the falls as the backdrop. For a truly magical experience, stay after dark when the falls are illuminated. For peak water flow, visit between June and August. – Tripadvisor

    Allow a Day for Canadian Side and be Sure to Buy Combination Passes
    Spent second day of our trip visiting Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. Definitely want to buy one of the combination passes that includes WeGo busses, incline railway, Journey Behind the Falls, The Fury, the Power Station, the Tunnel, White water Walk, Aero Car. All great but could have passed on the Fury. Bus transportation and Incline were huge pluses particularly with our hotel (Embassy Suites) at the very end. Went with the middle pass but you can go one higher which includes more but for the money, the middle one was perfect for us. Walked from Rainbow Bridge to our hotel and back on leaving, even with suitcase. Lots of chain restaurants but hard to find local cuisine. Did have pizza at Zippys one night.

    Lots to see at Niagara
    We loved experiencing Niagara Falls. We did the boat ride and behind the falls, but there are other quality places to visit nearby, as well as a midway with games and go carts for those who want those activities, and a bus system to take you there. Our hotel room had a great view and it was interesting to watch the changes with different light at different times of day.

    Just Wow
    I have seen this on YouTube and in photos but you have to see it in person as it’s truly awe inspiring and you get such a feeling of the power of the water. We went early on a Sunday as it gets quite busy after lunchtime. It’s definitely one ticked off my bucket list!

    Amazing
    We parked in the big lot at goat island. Horseshoe falls, American Falls and Bridal Veil falls can all be seen here. Goat Island is also where Cave of the Winds is located. The trolley for $3 each will take you to Maid of the Mist and more awesome views. The very best views are from the Canadian side. Also on the Canadian side is the cute little town of Niagara on the Lake. The earlier you can get there in the mornings the less crowded. Only an awesome God could have created something so amazing.

    Fantastic stay!
    Upon arrival as always, greeted with a smile and the warm chocolate chip cookies! This is always the best place to stay! The staff is very helpful and attentive! I hotel is very clean and kept that way on a continuous basis. All the attractions are within walking distance and you can even try you luck in the Casino. Only one downfall I can think of at this property, you have to pay for parking of your vehicle during your stay.

    Amazing experience
    The falls are stunning and definitely nice to view from both the American and Canadian sides (I personally think it’s prettier from the Canadian side)! Fireworks at night are great too! Lots to do in the area but all quite expensive! I would highly recommend heading to the falls! Go on a boat tour, do the journey beyond the falls tunnels and visit the American side! All give great but different views!

    Beautiful falls
    Must see at least once in your life. Beautiful falls. Very touristy and commercialized. But still beautiful to visit. I would recommend the Canadian side. But it’s probably still pretty from the American side because they have a 1/2 bridge going out to see them. Canadian side looks at the falls straight on.

    Niagara Falls Canada
    We made the 90 minute trip from Toronto and arrived in Niagara Falls to some on and off rain but this was ok. The power of the falls is incredible to see and the sheer water movement made me glad we had not booked the boat tour. We were there only to see the falls having little interest in the Coney Island like atmosphere of the town around the falls but others may like to overnight here. We parked right across from the falls and entered through the large welcome center.

    Must do bucket list trip!
    The falls are majestic- a lifetime must see. Maid of the Mist is a non negotiable. make sure your party does this and goes to upper deck. It’s iconic. Journey Behind the Falls is recommended but don’t let them upsell on other tours. Just take Journey a la carte. Not sure other things are worth it. Photo is $44! No thanks! Fireworks are low so make sure you go to the river by American Falls. 5 mins in duration. The incline is worth the day pass. Table Rock Centre is worth a walk through. House restaurant was convenient, adequate but pricey- and can’t beat that dining view. Falls at night is highly recommended for a stroll. Plusses: Turtle Jacks and Margaritaville were spot on for dinners. Many other options for eating with easy walking distance from lodging. We parked car at hotel and walked everywhere. Bring your step counters and good sneaks. Hotel (Oakes) was ehhh except for highlights of the amazing view and awesome concierge. Lots more to do - we were there two nights.

    Great time
    Beautiful sights. Very busy over the weekend of Canada Day and 4th of July. We ate in the Skylon revolving restaurant. Saw the sights and did the boat ride. Went to Niagara on the Lake and it was very nice, quaint town, lots of restaurants and shopping.

Great to see up close this awesome natural wonder. Make a pint of seeing in both day and night. The Niagara Park Pass makes it cost effective, is so well organised, makes it the best way to see all of the sights on the Canadian side. Which of course is the better side to view the falls.

Have always wanted to see the Falls and was not disappointed. Magnificent views from the Canadian side. Enjoyed the noise it makes and how the spray looks as it dissipates in the air in the evening.
Lit at night.
The boat ride into the Falls is amazing. Prepare to get wet.
Amazed by the number of birds that congregate around the Falls. They must generate plenty of food.

We went to Niagara Falls Canada as a day trip from Toronto. We rented a car for the day from Turo for ~ $150 and had it delivered to our hotel. We headed out early at 6:30 to avoid the traffic. 1.5 hours later at the Falls. Parked close ($35) and walked around the falls and watched the boats (we didn't want to get soaked).

We did the White Water trail (meh - not sure it is worth $20) and drove on to Niagara on the Lake. This is a beautiful drive with lots of wineries. It would be a great location for a girls trip. We headed back to Toronto ~ 2:00 and were in Toronto ~ by 4:00.

Traffic: Toronto traffic is terrible - but we avoided most of it by leaving early and returning early. We would have taken the train but the hours didn't work with our evening schedule and we wanted to see Niagara on the Lake. We also didn't want to be cooped up on a tour bus.

Next time: I'll spend a night or two in Niagara on the Lake and visit wineries / eat ice cream in the quaint little town. I'll do the waterfall boat ride (with sandals and a change of clothes).

Niagara Falls: The Canada side is beautiful and not commercialized.

I visited here in February with my friends. This place was my dream. So It was absolutely fantastic and the weather was also good so we could enjoy our time. After visiting Niagara falls, we walked off the beaten track. We ran out of gas but we were happy.

I was amazed at how close we were to the falls and the incredible views we got as we walked towards the Table Rock Centre. Just doing this alone would be enough to experience the natural beauty and power of the falls. We found that you could disregard all the nearby over commercialisation and just enjoy the falls in their natural beauty.

Going to the falls was the highlight of our recent visit to Toronto. The sheer majesty is breathtaking and something which will stay with me for ever. The other thing I will always remember is the deafening noise the water crashing over the falls make

Very disappointed!!! Once we arrived, we had to pay $20.00/night to park at the hotel we were staying at! Then we drove to the Falls and the amount to park at the falls was $24.00 PER HOUR! We were nickel and dimed to death with parking fees everywhere we went! We ate dinner at the Skylon (paid $197.00 for our meal, which was excellent though), but had to pay to park there! The Floral Clock - pay to park, Aero Car - pay to park, botanical gardens - pay to park, Aquarium - pay to park, Clifton Hill - pay to park!!! And this was still off-season! This was the first time we ever saw homeless people sleeping and milling around in the tourist areas on Clifton Hill. Seemed like prices were higher than they should have been even though the rate of exchange was 30%. We used to enjoy coming up to the falls for a long weekend, but too much in parking and tolls.
