You need to see it once, but don't bother to come back. The colored lights at night really cheapen the experience.

Never fails to impress me. You get lost in the thunderous sound and beauty of the Falls. Causes you to reflect and get caught-up in your thoughts. Great views from either the American or Canadian side. Easy to get around and find your spot for effect viewing.

We recently spent 10 days visiting, Maine, Buffalo and New York. The day in Niagara was the highlight. We did the complete tourist package, Maid of the mist, Cave of the Winds etc. Absolutely amazing. As everyone says you must also visit from the Canadian side.

We spent a week in NYC and while that was great, I've always wanted to visit Niagara Falls. I am so glad that we flew to the other side of the state! Niagara Falls is simply breathtaking. Like the Grand Canyon and Mt. Rushmore, it's one of the places you must see. It was cold, clear and very windy. We... More

We visited both the US and Canadian side on the same day and while the views were not as good on this side, the pace and whole experience was better. Parking is easy, the shuttle can run you between car parks and different view points, and each view point is well laid out and not madly teeming with people. On... More

I would rate this beautiful place a 100 out of 10. Yes, that's what I wrote, 100 out of 10. I love natural beauty. I haven't seen a great many of places, but I definitely believe Niagara Falls ranks with the Giant Redwoods, and Pacific Grove coastline (near Monterey, California). When I saw these falls, all I could think of... More
