Spectacular! Wow! Fabulous! Whatever superlatives you choose, you won’t be able to keep the word from your lips at Niagara Falls. For here, great muscular bands of water tumble over a precipice like liquid glass, roaring into the void below. In terms of sheer volume, more than a million bathtubs of water plummet over the edge every second.

Niagara Falls is actually two sets of falls: the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. The best way to see Horseshoe Falls is either via the Maid of the Mist boat, which takes you right up to Falls, through the turbulent waters of the American Falls. Another way is to take the Journey Behind the Falls, in which you’ll walk through tunnels onto an observation deck to get a wet but up-close view of the Horseshoe Falls or go to the Cave of the Winds for an up-close view of the American Falls.

On land, you can see Niagara Falls from the Skyline Tower on the Canadian side or from the Observation Tower in Niagara Falls State Park on the American side, just north of the American Falls.

Practical Info

You can reach Niagara Falls from Toronto and New York City by bus, train, or car. Once you’re here, you can get around Niagara Falls, the town on the Canadian side, by shuttle bus. Parking is plentiful, especially in the parking lot in Niagara Parkway, just south of River Road.

Other diversions at Niagara Falls include Clifton Hill, a massive entertainment promenade, Bird Kingdom, Marineland, and the Whirlpool Aero Car. Outside of Niagara is a burgeoning wine region, worth exploring if you have extra time.
