Niagara Falls Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia


The Niagara Falls are located on the border
of Ontario Province, Canada, and New York State, U.S.A. The water flows from the Great Lakes, the world’s largest surface fresh water system, all the way down to the Atlantic Ocean. See one of the world’s most awe-inspiring
displays of the power of nature- from the sky, from the foaming river below, or even from within arm’s reach. The Niagara River connects Lake Erie with
Lake Ontario. But before it gets there, the water plunges down almost 170 feet in
a straight drop. The volume of water that comes tumbling over
the crest is overwhelming: Almost 170,000 cubic meters of water, that’s 6 million cubic feet, thunders over these combined falls each minute
during the Falls’ peak hours. Most people don’t realize this until they
get there, but there are actually three waterfalls. East are the American Falls and the narrow
Bridal Veil Falls. Then you’ve got Goat Island and to the west is the impressive Canadian
Horseshoe Falls, the widest and most powerful of them all. Glide over the river, or explore the many other vantage points, to see the water plummet into the depths below. The resulting plume of mist is visible from
miles away. To feel its spray, board the Maid of the Mist. The first wooden steamboat took people to
the falls as early as the mid 1800s and, while the Maids are now made out of steel, the excitement during this half-hour cruise
has changed little since. If you want to get as close to the curtain
of water as you can, embark on a Journey Behind the Falls and see – and hear – the water rush past right in front of you. Below the Falls, the foaming water mass squeezes its way through
a narrow gorge, creating the Whirlpool Rapids, which you can
get to, aboard a jet raft. Aside from nature, there is also plenty of family entertainment
to be had under neon lights. Take the kids to visit the Niagara SkyWheel and nearby themed attractions and arcades. Cross the Rainbow Bridge to the American side to see the Aquarium of Niagara in a serene
environment or stay on the Canadian side and enjoy the
Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens. Niagara-on-the-Lake is only a short drive
away. Visit this pretty 19th-century village to
browse boutique shops, play golf or have lunch before you set out to explore Ontario’s wine country. A shuttle bus or taxi can drop you back at
the Falls in no time. Scale the Skylon Tower to admire this glorious
landscape once more. Less than a 2-hour drive from Toronto and only a taxi ride away from Buffalo airport, getting to Niagara is easy. Their accessibility and splendor make the
Niagara Falls one of the most-photographed natural spectacles
in the world. But, of course, no picture can capture the
thrill you feel – and the roar you hear – when you witness Niagara’s astonishing power. An impression that will last a lifetime…

  1. Hey guys!! I'm a American Citizen, my question is do I need a passport to see Niagara falls in Canada ?

  2. Can anyone tell me if Niagara is a good place to live or at least to spend a year as an exchange student? It looks so small and there seems to be no nightlife. I might eventually spend a year in Niagara because apparently it is cheaper than Toronto or Vancouver, but I'm afraid it may be tedious. Could anyone possibly help me with any information about nightlife, places with live music, jobs?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. what an experience I hade when i visited the waterfalls I've been to the Canadian side but i guess the American is just as beautiful. will go back for sure love both USA and Canada ❤ GREETZ
    From Italy

  4. why are you people comparering the 2 country on this very site for. who cares really. this is a place where, if the 2 can't get along, must co-exist anyway. besides, i've seen better waterfalls elsewhere than this. people are so ignorant sometimes.

  5. Niagara Falls, the boundary of Canada and USA. It’s the most magnificent landscape in this world. So amazing. I aim to see it with my lover in the rest of my life. And that’s why I learn English so hard and wanna go abroad to further my study someday. Coz English can open up my eyes and help me to finger out the totally new world

  6. I went their last year right before new years where it was -20 out side and it was beautiful. The mist just adds several inches of ice over everything around the falls. Best of all there's not much people who visit it when it's that cold and in my opinion the best time to see it. Just make sure you bring lots of warm clothes because it gets cold

  7. How could Expedia not mention that Buffalo, NY is only 30 minutes away and is the closest major city to Niagara Falls. Expedia should do a Travel Guide on Buffalo, but then again, there is already another video with just as many views as Niagara Falls.

  8. Nature gifted country is America god gifted peoples in America both coincide to form great intelligent and developed nation god bless for ever to supervise the world

  9. Hii dear friend I'm from India.

  10. Niagara Falls employee here to give a few tips about Niagara Falls
    1. Downtown Niagara Falls charges an extra tax known as a tourist tax. You can refuse to pay this tax. It’s illegal for them to enforce the tax. So just walk away or call the cops
    2. Tipping valets at hotels like Marriott fallsview and spa do not make it to the valets. They mostly go to paying managers. So when ur there talk to a manager and have them stick it up their a$$
    3. Also Marriott fallsview and spa change their mattresses every 5-10 years. Check under the sheets. I’ve seen lots of blood and fecal matter while working there. Would never sleep there. Gross

  11. I visited NOTL for my 21st birthday. Stayed at a nice hotel and visited a beautiful winery for my first taste.

  12. I wanna go back! I enjoyed my week vacation to NF so much! Myself and my fiancé! It was well worth the 700 mile drive and $2K spent! Memories that will last forever!!!!!!

  13. สวยน่ากลัวจริงๆ
