"Come see the spectacle of the falls!" Niagara Falls by Jefie

Niagara Falls Travel Guide: 1,468 reviews and 3,627 photos

Niagara Falls is one of the most visited spots in Canada so you might think that its reputation has been blown out of proportion but rest assured: the beauty and majesty of the falls make a visit to Niagara Falls entirely worthwhile.

During a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, I spent a day in Niagara Falls (the two cities are about 20 minutes away by car and the drive along the Niagara Parkway is quite nice) so here are some tips that might help you plan your trip to this beautiful region!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the world's natural wonders
  • Cons:Very, VERY touristy!!
  • In a nutshell:A pretty good combination of nature and entertainment
  • Last visit to Niagara Falls: May 2004

    Nice tips. I don't think they had fireworks when I was there, but that was a long time ago.

      Thanks! Obviously, judging from the quality and quantity of pics I took on that trip, I last went to Niagara Falls prior to the digital camera era and before I joined VT :op I really need to go back and update this page!

    You give a good description of what a day spent at Niagara Falls would be like. I guess I really should go there, but I found Iguassu Falls too touristy and it sounds as though Niagara Falls are even more so.

    Hi Isa, I enjoyed your Niagara Falls page. Some more things to do when I go back - in my case, hopefully when the weather's warmer.
