Niagara Falls

A city in the U.S. known for its proximity to massive waterfalls on the border with Canada, a major tourist destination with iconic views.

Tips from the community

An hour-long drive from Toronto will get you to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. During its daily peak, more than 168,000 cubic meters of water thunderously passes through the crest every minute, shrouding the surrounding area in a hypnotic mist. Once you’ve finished marveling at one of Mother Nature’s great wonders, the town has been transformed into a mini Las Vegas of sorts with a collection of casinos, upscale hotels, restaurants, and amusement parks springing up nearby. In the summer, the Falls hosts a dazzling fireworks show every night, as well as regular live entertainment throughout the year.

Tucked between the border of Ontario and New York State sits Niagara Falls: three thundering waterfalls located at the end of Niagara River. Combined, the falls have the “highest flow rate of any waterfall in North America.” Famous for it’s beautify and it’s power (it’s been used for hydroelectric power since 1759!), this wonder is best explored by boat or, our preferred method, from the sky.

Niagara Falls is one of the most iconic natural wonders in the United States, located in western New York. Visitors can witness the sheer power of the cascading waterfalls from several observation decks, take a scenic boat ride to get up close to the falls, or even take a helicopter tour for an aerial view. The surrounding town also offers a variety of restaurants, shops, and other attractions to round out the experience.
