About Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a spectacular sight. The sheer volume of water careening over the edge and plummeting downwards, then spraying icy mist like vast clouds all around is unlike anything else on the planet. And unlike some of the world’s other great waterfalls, it’s so accessible that there are thousands and thousands of people drawn to it each day to marvel at the sights, sounds and feel of it. And some of the best places to stay in Niagara Falls are just a few minutes stroll from the falls.

The town of Niagara Falls, on the Canadian side, exists mostly for the benefit of visitors to the falls themselves.

What Not To Miss

  • If there's one thing that you simply can't miss here, it's Niagara Falls! It's unlikely that any visitors would visit the town and not see the falls!
  • There are also a number of spas - there’s nothing like gushing water to make you think of springs and the healing power of H2O.
  • The whole area sits beside an artery of wonderful water, so there are some great whitewater rafting routes and some exceptionally beautiful nature reserves to hike into too.
  • Bird Kingdom, which claims to be the world’s largest aviary, with 400 species of free-range tropical birds, is also worth a visit, especially if you’re here with your family, and there’s a very beautiful Botanical Gardens with a Butterfly Conservatory.
  • You might also want to take a trip on the Maid of the Mist, a boat taking people around the foot of the falls.

Don’t forget that the falls are illuminated every night and there are fireworks over the falls during the summer months! Also remember that this is an extremely popular destination. So if you want to reserve a room in one of the best places to stay in Niagara Falls, get organised and book early.
