Niagara Falls lives up to the hype and, like the Grand Canyon, you should make the effort to see it once. There are really three falls: the American Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the much smaller Bridal Veil. You should check out the falls from both sides of the border though the Canadian side offers more to do.

Niagara Falls is argueably one of the most dramatic set of waterfalls in North America. The Canadian side is much more built up, and set up, for tourists. It's got miles of paved walkways with breathtaking views, gorgeus gardens, upscale hotels and casinos, and yes, a wax museum or two. 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.

Niagara Falls is one of those iconic sites, and it is indeed worth a look. Take time to watch and enjoy the rush of the water over these massive falls. When we went, there were lots of rainbows! The Canada side has a lot of great views and a lot of places that would love to take your money for various attractions.

The falls were great to see. There is also a lot to do around the falls. See the rapids, whirlpools, cable car, go behind the falls. and even more within the city. Very neat!

Been here when my older son was on the 76ers Travel Soccer Team! Drove from Virginia to Canada, walked along the side of Niagara Falls with my younger children! My children and I were getting soaked from the waters spraying everywhere from the Falls! We were up there for three days, I wish I could remember the hotel we stayed at! It has been so long ago! It was one of my better days spending with my family!!

Focus on the natural beauty and ignore the tourist traps. THIS is what you came for. It is truly one of the world's great natural beauties. The park lining the Canadian side is beautiful, well-kept, and 26 miles long! Fantastic.

WOW! this is spectacular! We stayed in Buffalo for a couple nights although its a ghost town so not much to do apart from sleep and socialise with other travellers! Get the 1 hour half bus to Niagra Falls and spend the day surrounded by one of the most amazing natural creations i have ever seen! Make sure you spare with a bit of cash to either walk under the water falls or take the boat through the mist of the falls! Definitely worth the dollars! You HAVE to go to the Canadian side too but don't forget your visa and passport, one of my friends forgot and they didn't let her through! Apart from seeing the falls from another angle (the better one by the way), there's nothing else to do there apart from have the opportunity to spend a ridiculous amounts of money on tacky tourist activities. I wasn't impressed with how they have developed the Canadian side of the falls. I felt like i was in a cheap and grotty town which took away from the natural beauty of the falls.
