    Take a picture like this! Then lost on Facebook saying, "Now you know how to shit rainbows like me." · July 11, 2012

    If you can, cross the border into Canada because the view of both falls is better. You get a good view of just rapids on the American side.

    Make sure your grab your quarters and passport if you are walking back and forth between the US and Canadian sides!

    Walk paths are slippery near falls in winter. Even railings are covered with ice. Be careful when walking.

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING VIEW!... Plus, inside the visitors center you can watch in the IMAX theater the short film on the history behind Niagara Falls. Highly recommend!

    Go on the whirlpool rapids hike. It's about a 2 mile hike leaving from whirlpool rapids state park and has some of the best scenery I saw during my stay in Niagara.

    Was really awesome to see at night with the changing lights on the waterfalls...glad I got to see it from the Canadian side, much more interesting!

    You can walk over the Rainbow Bridge to the Canadian Side if you so choose; there is a $0.50 toll for pedestrians to cross, but it is totally worth it.

    I love the night time lights. During the day got to see the awesomeness of the rapids & managed to see a rainbow over it too!

    Arrive at 8pm just as the sun sets on summer and avoid the $10 parking fee. Also the observation deck is open and free. Watch the sun go down as the water falls light up

    Don't have proper identification to cross the border into Canada and a U.S. citizen? Buffalo Passport Agency can assist.

    Every Sunday night during the summer there are fireworks at 10pm - well worth a watch :-)

    During the winter you can park on Goat Island for free and on nice days it is a wonderful place to walk...

    Maid of the mist and cave of the winds are must experience here ! If you wanna go for the aquarium show, make sure you reach there early, it shuts down at 3 pm.

    Not a good idea to visit when it is 20 degrees F. Ice everywhere. Bring peanuts to feed the giant friendly squirrles.

    The weather in Niagara is anything but predictable. Make sure your car is equipped with Michelin wiper blades to handle whatever elements come your way.

    Great fun. The parks on the US side are great but for rides and entertainment; walk over to the Canadian side.

    While there are about 500 taller waterfalls in the world, Niagara Falls is spectacular for its sheer power. It’s also more accessible than many major falls. Read more
