Can you see anything of the falls from the US side? I read somewhere they are going to start requiring passports to cross into Canada as soon as next year. Has anybody heard about this? I want to go before that happens, but I can't. What do you have to do to get passports? Can you see the whirlpool down-stream from the US side? Cave of the Winds, the observation tower, and the Maid of the Mist sound like really cool attractions on the US side. You can take the maid of the mist from the US side. Does it make a difference? Is Journey Behind the Falls worth it, if I can get over to the Canadian side? What other things am I missing? I am not interested in a aquarium or something like that, just the things related to the falls. I know there is also a couple observation towers and a imax theater on the Canadian side. Also,which is better, Whirlpool State Park in NY or the White Water Walk in Canada to explore downstream of the falls? Can you take a jetboat ride from New York? Is the Journey Behind the Falls worth it or is Cave of the Winds better?
Thanks for any help -
