You have to see it in your lifetime. It is a beautiful natural landmark and worth the trip. But outside of the Maid of the Mist tour which I strongly recommend the rest of it is like Disney World. It is over crowded with tacky attractions, casinos and fast food places. I was so surprised that the Canada side was like this I thought it would be more upscale and classy. It made me sad to think something so beautiful could be made to be like a carnival attraction.

We visited Morning, noon and night and each time it had a different ambiance. We arrived on Sunday and it was packed. During the week it was waay less visitors and easier to get photos without people everywhere. :) The fireworks were good, 6 minutes long. we viewed them from the grassy area across the street..it was like a front row seat. A must see in your lifetime.

Does anyone really expect a 1 star rating?

It's awesome and its free.

All day parking is $10 , but was free in the evening.

The falls. (both of them) are a sight to behold in daylight and when lighted at night. We saw them from the Canadian side and
from the Maid of the Mist. Do not
miss this place!

I loved the majestic view from the Canadian side. The falls were much more spectacular than I had ever imagined. Loved the many views of the falls.
