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.
