    A true Wonder of the World! Such magnificent view even seeing for the _nth time. Canadian side has the breathtaking view; American side is an up close experience. Falling in love over and over...

    One of the most beautiful places in the world. I went to both American and Canadian sides of it, but only for the American attractions. Both are as beautiful! Maid of the mist is amazing!

    It's a little crowded mostly but deserves at least one visit in a lifetime! Maid of the mist ride is a must to get the full view of the falls. I would come again to see the frozen falls in winter soon

    A lot nicer than expected! We went on Maid of the Mist ($15.50) Prepare to get really wet. And once you get off the boat, do keep the poncho if you want to walk up to have a closer look of the falls.

    Beautiful state park. Walk the entire path for some nice scenery. Parking van be a bit difficult so either keep your car at the hotel or find Street parking somewhere to save a few bucks.

    The falls cannot be described. You must experience it. The best way to see the falls is by taking the boat tour. The boat tour is available on both the Canadian and the American sides of the falls.

    Great park to explore and you grt up close and personal to the falls. $10 for parking free is less than 20 min. The view is not quite as nice as the Canadian Side.

    A must-visit for tourists and locals alike! Start with the touristy part - Goat Island, Luna Island and Three Sisters Island - then work your way up the trails toward the Whirlpool and Devil's Hole.

    Don't miss The Cave of the Winds. A self guided tour that takes you to the bottom of the falls. You get so close you can actually touch the falls! Totally awesome!!

    Wonderfully scenic park with excellent views of the Falls. Much more natural and relaxing than the Canadian side. Definitely worth a visit.

    My favorite view is from the lookout by the Bridal Veil Falls on Goat Island. If you look over the edge it drops right off. Plus, get close up to the American Falls.

    The Canadian falls are way more impressive. Bring your passport and cross the border for a GREAT view. Niagara Falls, NY also has a nice casino

    One of the things you must do is the Niagara Falls. It's a drive but very beautiful to watch. One of the first places I went when I was a kid and near Canada.

    If you can bring a waterproof camera, bring it. You will need it if you are taking the Maid of the Mist boat ride.

    Don't eat at Top of the falls if you want good food. The Red Coach Inn is delicious.

    The first person to survive the 70-foot plunge into the falls was Annie Taylor, who went over in a barrel on her 63rd birthday in 1901 and escaped with only a few bruises. (From Aerial America) Read more
