The view is of course absolutely stunning but it seems that access to the observation deck ( entrance to the Maiden Mist ) is free. While I queued up to pay just for deck access I observed many walk right in without paying. The fee was only $5 for a family of 4, but still it seemed optional. Certainly, you... More

But a mustsee! It isn't nessecary to buy the passes and tickets, you can see the falls without it! Please make sure to cross the bridge into Canada (bring your passport) so you can see the falls in full glory!

I went to Niagara Falls as a kid and just went back last week. So sad that this natural wonder has become and unbelievable tourist trap. Full of trashy food and trinket stands walking up to the park. The grass was worn away to dirt along the sidewalks as people had no respect for the park or keeping it nice... More

You may have heard that you should view the Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. While that may not be an entirely true statement, it is a widely accepted view of travelers. I, however, can’t find one single good topic about how I should wisely visit Niagara Falls. If that interests you, please read on. My response to the statement... More

Great views of the falls and the borders of the US and Canada. So much to do around the area! Get there early to find parking.

If you want to enjoy the full experience, I would recommend to take the boat which bring you just in the middle of the waterfall, and, going to the Canada side to see the best views of the waterfall as well as booking the Journey behind the Walls to stand just next to the waterfall as long as you want....

Awesome! Must see... we saw from the NY side only, which we heard wasnt as good, but we thought it was spectacular. You can get so close from the NY side... very cool experience, everyone should go at least once

The daytime view is incredible, the view at night is nothing short of spectacular! The falls are larger than you'd expect and the grounds around them are lovely. The town itself is tailor made for teens and young families with a variety of rides and attractions. The dinosaur min golf is quite creative.

We have seen them with the daylight, in the cruise, during the evening and with the fireworks, a great experience for the whole family; we will never forget it.
