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.
You can reach Niagara Falls from Toronto 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.
