worth going to the falls in november?

My husband and I are planning a trip to the falls at the end of november. I really want to go but am afraid that it may be to cold to see the sights and really enjoy everything. Any opinions? Thanks!

It shouldn't be too cold at the end of November. Just be sure to pack warm clothing. I doubt you'll run into a snow storm or anything. Lately we tend to not get snow until late December.

Even if there is snow by then, Niagara Falls (in my opinion) is much prettier in the winter.

Warm clothing will work wonders.

There is never a bad time to visit Niagara Falls. the majestic beauty is always there. we've found that sometimes it is less busy during the "off seasons" affording better views. Be sure to bring warm clothing, but chances are you won't need it...though the humidity at the falls level could make a cool day feel rather cold.

For things to do.....there is plenty to do in November. The Festival of Lights will be in full swing....the lights are on every evening. Fireworks over the falls on Friday nights, http://www.wfol.com/fireworks.html

Performing arts include "Beauty and the Beast, a comedy fest, 2 gospel concerts and a Christmas concert. http://www.wfol.com/events.html

and, if you are interested in plants/flowers the "floral showcase" of the Niagara Parks Commission (greenhouses) are usually absolutely magnificent that time of year. It is open 9:30 to 5:00 in November and is free! niagaraparks.com/garden/floral-showhouse.php

and of course, you have all the regular attractions of Niagara falls (other than a few that will be closed for the season such as the Maid of the Mist etc)

Come enjoy yourself!!! In fact, in doing the research for this post, I'm actually tempted to book a getaway weekend in November!!!!

IMO, seeing the ice bridge spanning the horseshoe falls is breathtaking sight. And I much prefer visiting really touristy places off-season so that I can avoid the crowds and the heat and the traffic. Use the People Mover - you'll love it so much, you'll wish your city had one.

And if you have the time, why not pop over to Toronto?

FYI, there won't be an ice bridge until late in the winter (February), and the People Mover does not operate during the winter (after October).

Also, the 'Beauty and the Beast' production that is mentioned above is the same quality of production as shows in Toronto (in fact, many of the performers are Toronto regulars) http://www.silvermist.ca/
