Niagara Falls
4.0 9


Ready to go over the Niagara Falls? It’s a special place for many reasons: its beauty, its power, and its utility, among others. But, one aspect of the Niagara Falls sometimes goes unmentioned. This is one of the few natural wonders of the world that falls on an international border. And, with gorgeous geological features in both Canada and the United States, there’s a lot to cover. There’s the Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Goat Island, Cave of the Winds, Three Sisters Islands, and much, much more. So, find your passport because we’re hitting the Niagara Falls from both sides!

Our tips for Niagara Falls

  • Wet n’ wild. If you take a Niagara Falls tour of any kind, you will get wet! Those cheap, ubiquitous, plastic ponchos will not save you. Plan your attire accordingly!
  • Canada, eh? For the full Niagara Falls experience, you absolutely must get a view from both the U.S. and Canada. Plus, there are far more events, activities, and accommodations on Canada’s side. Passports, please!
  • Day tripping. If you are just passing through, you can easily get away with feeding a parking meter and doing your Niagara Falls sightseeing for free!

Good to know

Best time to visit

The Niagara Falls State Park is open 365 days a year, regardless of weather conditions. That said, the best time to visit the Niagara Falls is late spring to early fall. Many of the most popular attractions and tours are seasonal, such as the Maid of the Mist, and operate only during these months. Temperatures reach freezing by late November and continue on into April. Rainfall is pretty steady throughout the year; but, when you’re getting drenched by the Niagara Falls, it doesn’t really matter much, does it?

Getting there

The most common ways to reach Niagara Falls are flying into Buffalo Niagara International Airport or driving in along the I-90 highway. Although the Niagara Falls State Park does not have a physical address, the best address that you can input into your GPS is 24 Buffalo Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY 14303. That will put you at the intersection of Buffalo and 1st Street, which is where you’ll find the entrance to the park.

Money saving tips

Got a hole in your pocket? Don’t sweat it! You can save a fair amount of money during your Niagara Falls trip simply by saying “no”. The Discovery Pass includes the popular Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds tours. But, unless you really want the included aquarium entry and movie ticket, just take the Maid of the Mist tour separately and use the money you saved for a night out on the town.
