    The view is amazing. Come later in the day so you can stick around for the fall lighting show, and fireworks if there are any. Boat tour recommend! Cheap parking just past the Skylon tower parking.

    This is rather a mini Las Vegas than a city around the falls now already. What more is to come? Perfect place to party in the night if you have the budget for it.

    If you like photography, the tower on the Canadian side has the best view. Winter is the best time to visit. People don't like the cold so you an get great shots without tourists crossing your path

    Best place to view the falls. Walk the entire length for some nice scenery. Lots of tourists around in your way though. Don't be that guy who stops his car in the road for pictures. Pay for parking.

    Hotels and restaurants around Niagara Falls are not too expensive and the food is high quality with excellent service. The Falls are magnificent and worth it to see.

    Horseshoe falls are beautiful not only in summer but also in winter. There are definitely less people in winter in general meaning it is easier to take nicer photos.

    Walk north on Niagara Pkwy just past Clifton Hill & check out the quiet flower gardens. The Secret Garden gift shop is here too & seems less busy than most places on the tourist strip.

    Winter is the best when water frozen. Specially at night there was rainbow color spotlight. It was absolutely gorgeous. Bring your winter clothes specially at night weather was frigid even at February

    It's absolutely beautiful. Buy the tour pass it's worth it. Also eating in and around the area of Niagara Falls is very expensive. So be prepared. And be prepared to do a lot of walking.

    Wear good comfortable shoes as you will be walking everywhere. Parking is a premium! If you venture down fall side have a rain jacket on as you will get wet from the mist.

    Majestic. Awe inspiring. And slightly scary. Just try staring at this natural wonder without your jaw agape. Tip: The freezing mist can be treacherous in the winter so use caution.

    I have lived here over forty years and although things change on the landscape, Great to know that the Niagara Parks Commission and other Local Enthusiasts and Organizations are keeping the area green

    There are endless picture-perfect photo opportunities along the walkway at Niagara Falls. For the best shot, get here at night to take in the light show and fireworks!

    By far the most beautiful and stunning waterfall is the Canadian "horseshoe", with rainbow the view is completely stunning!

    Niagara Parkway is a spectacular visit in the Fall, just look at these colours! There are also a ton of spooky things to do if you're looking for the Halloween experience! Read more

    Huge tourism area, not anything particularly related to the falls or history.

    It doesn't matter where you stand on Maid of the Mist, you will get wet so embrace it! Head to the edge for the best spray and view, as they really pack the boat full.

    Majestic! It's worth the trip or a stop if you're headed back to the eastern U.S. from Ontario. Don't leave your rain jacket in the car!

    Take some time to enjoy nature's perfection. Look around and notice all the cultures, people, languages that are gathered there. Amazing.

    Absolutely breathtaking. See them during the day, but also at night!!! They are lit up in the dark and look gorgeous. Bring a rain coat!

    I miss this place. Take the Mist-Boat and scare yourself. The view is amazing. The landscapes are breath-taking. This is quiet mixed with beauty all at once.

    I think the best view is on the side near Skylon Tower. In front of Sheraton Hotel you see mostly the falls from the US.

    Don't miss the Aquarium of Niagara, where you can watch penguin feedings, see sea lions up close and even feed seals yourself.

    Wow!! What a view! Don't wreck your car driving along the view point. Behind the falls is a must. Get ready to be soaked.

    Much cleaner than the American side and not as over priced (surprisingly). Superior views of the Falls.

    At the American side, it's very peaceful. The Canadian side? As if you were in Vegas. Amazing nonetheless!

    Apply sunbock well ahead of time. The mist will otherwise make the cream run down your face and into your eyes. Just an FYI.

    Canadian side is much more beautiful than US side; have 2 quarters to cross the bridge (50c any currency)
