Niagara Falls' unique location between Canada and the US comprises of three waterfalls, not just one! Whether you want to see its frozen winter splendor or thunderous power in summer, both sides offer very different spectacles to choose from.
90% of the Niagara River flows over Canada's Horseshoe Falls. It doesn't just look awesome, its raw power is literally eroding the US-Canada border!
As the name suggests, the American Falls is on the American side. It offers some of the most extreme views, with visitors able to get nail-bitingly close to the edge!
Located in New York State, Bridal Veil is by far the smallest of the three. It's worth visiting the Cave of Winds attraction to see the water flow over you from the falls' base!
63-year-old Annie Taylor became the first of many to journey over Horseshoe Falls in a barrel. Horseshoe is terribly dangerous, but the others are too rocky to survive!
Boat tours operate in Niagara Gorge at the foot of the falls. Each country has different tour operators, so compare before deciding which side of the border to journey from.
A day should be enough to see Niagara Falls but it's worth scheduling more time if you plan to take advantage of the many activities, tours, and boat cruises available. It is very common for people to set aside a day-trip as part of a longer stay in Toronto or New York.
July to August are, unsurprisingly, the busiest months. If you want to avoid the crowds then going in June or September will make a considerable difference. Having said that, there are few things as awe-inspiring as the frozen Niagara in winter!
Both Toronto Pearson Airport and Buffalo Airport offer shuttle bus services, some with group discounts. It's worth noting that Toronto is much closer than Buffalo so, unless you're travelling from elsewhere in the US, you're probably better off accessing the falls from the Canadian side. There are direct trains twice a day between Toronto's Union Station and Niagara Falls.
- When should I visit?The falls can be be viewed 24 hours a day.
- Is it expensive?It is free to view, but you will need to pay parking fees, which can be around $20.
- Will I need a guide?It will definitely help. It's worth checking out our best-selling tours.
- How to get thereGiven the location of Niagara Falls between two countries, there are unlimited possibilities to get there. The most direct way would be by car, but there are various bus and coach options, too - it is best to research online first which would suit you best as part of a larger trip to Canada or the US.
- Additional information**You're going to get wet from the spray of the falls, so bring a rain jacket! | Make sure you have the appropriate travel documents (e.g. passport, visa) if you plan on crossing the border.*
What people are saying about Niagara Falls
This is not a dinner cruise. You have dinner at a restaurant then head to the falls cruise. Do not order the prime rib, salmon however was great. Having the opportunity to change the lights at Niagara Falls was fun! We would certainly do it again!
My Aunt and I loved the Niagara Falls boat ride, we got so close to the waterfalls, it was just absolutely amazing.
A bit of a wait---in the heat, mind you---but once you're on that boat approaching the falls, you can't help but revel in the mist surrounding you. What a sight! What an experience! A definite must-do when you're visiting the Falls!
Tablerock has great views. The prime rib dinner was excellent. The cruise was well done, and the fireworks spectacular from the boat. Well worth it!
Caleb (our guide) was personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. Have been to the Falls 4 previous times and saw some things I had never seen before on this tour. A must-do!
