Straddling the border between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls delivers water with the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. Formed by receding glaciers of the last ice age, the famous falls consist of three sets of waterfalls: the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Falls. Their natural beauty draws millions of visitors each year. You can view the falls from decks, vista points, and trails of Niagara Falls State Park. For the full experience, consider buying the park's inclusive package, which includes a Maid of the Mist boat ride and a trip to within feet of the Falls at the Cave of the Winds, as well admission to the park attractions Niagara Adventure Theater, Aquarium of Niagara, and Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. Consider a meal at the restaurant on Goat Island overlooking Horseshoe Falls, which are one-third in the United States and two-thirds in Canada. Put Niagara Falls and other Niagara Falls attractions into our Niagara Falls trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • I was there two years ago, it was beautiful. On both sides you can take very nice photos. Videos are just wonderful. Beautiful place. At night, Niagara Falls is also illuminated. Recommended.
  • I have been living in Toronto, Canada for 21 years and have visited Niagara Falls several times; once, I crossed the border to see it from the American side. Niagara Falls is made up of three separate falls: Horseshoe Falls (Canadian), American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. The attractive, magnificent, and mesmerizing falls have the magnetic power to pull its visitors repeatedly; one can never enjoy it enough! Niagara Falls, one of the wonders of the world, is being visited daily by thousands of tourists from all over the world. The incredible scene of 3 million liter water falling every second is immensely thrilling and captivating. It transcends the viewers from their limited thoughts to the inexhaustible world of nature. The experience of going to the foot of the Horseshoe Falls by Hornblower cruise (Maid of the Mist from the USA) and getting drenched by the mist is utterly indescribable and unforgettable. Furthermore, unlike the USA side, the entire area in front of the falls is developed beautifully and impeccably on the Canadian side. The enormous garden in front of the falls is alluring. You can see plenty of groups enjoying picnics and children playing everywhere. At night, all the three falls look colorful with the lights of different colors projected on them. The prepossessing scenes are capable of filling the visitors' minds with abundant amount of awe, astonishment, and exhilaration. Every visit to the enchanting Niagara Falls is breathtaking and uplifting. The mighty falls is unique; no wonder it is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
