- Maid of the Mist5920 River Road, Niagara Falls, ON L2E 6V6, Canadarecommended Maid of the MistA ride on the Maid of the Mist is an absolute must. (And a sure fire hit at any age.)

The view of the falls themselves, are much more beautiful on the Canadian side too (they're even lit up at night). The American side is nice, it just kind of falls flat in comparison to its neighbor in terms of attractions and amenities for tourists.Liza Prado
Niagara Falls is just outside of Buffalo, NY. Yes, the one famous for all the snow. I grew up there, and frankly, March is still well within the winter season. Not that a blizzard is typical in March but come prepared for anything from the low teens to the mid-60s. In terms of whether March is a good time to visit--the falls themselves are gorgeous anytime of year as long as you dress for the weather! Truly a spectacular set of waterfalls....

The surrounding town is really nothing to write home about, full of tourist-y restaurants and kitschy shops.Recommended for:Julia P
Hey Navi, March will still be pretty cold, but I imagine that the fact that it should be less crowded will make up for that. The falls are impressive, definitely worth a stop.
