The falls are amazing to see. Stay on the Canadian side for sure - better views and looked like a nicer area. Buy the package deal for the 4 attractions, which you can comfortably see all in one day. The package doesn't save you that much, but is totally worth it because it includes the bus and also gives you a reserved time to attend each attraction (except maid of the mist - so arrive there early). You still wait in line, but it did seem to save quite a bit of time. (The service desk at the behind the falls attraction seemed to have less lines when purchasing the package than the outdoor kiosks.). There are fireworks two nights a week. we planned our stay so we could see them - totally unneccesary. The fireworks were not impressive and they're not over the falls, but over the bridge instead. Tip: restaurants in the area are all chains with increased prices. Stay in Niagara, but take the 30 min drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake for independent restaurants of varying prices and wineries, too.

Niagara Falls...inspiring, awesome and very moving. The views are wonderful. What to do: the boat(Maid of the Mist) ride into the falls, the walk between the falls and the boat landing, viewing the falls at night and the White Water River Walk. Things okay: walk behind the falls. Be careful when you book a room, not very many have full views of the falls do to the casino blocking the view. If you drive from Toronto, make sure to plan a visit to the wineries along the way. View is best from the Canadian side. We took a bus from the airport in Toronto to Niagara Falls, cost ~ $50.00 US. We only spent 1.5 days at the falls.

Yes, they're big, and yes, there is a lot of water flowing over the rocks, but that's where it ends. Don't stay in the town - it's depressing. You gotta go see it right? So see it, take a picture, maybe a tour if you are so inclined, but let that be it! Drive an hour-and-a-half north and check out Toronto instead - you'll be glad you did!
