    Don't eat at the food court. Right across the street are great restaurants.

    The American side appears to be on hard times. We are traditionalist and had to ride the original Falls tour boat; Maid of the Mist. Nice! It is a must do.

    They say that the Canadian side has Better views, while that is 100% true, the view is all the same once you are on the Maiden of the Mist. The $20 is worth more than getting a visa just to look!
