If you want to see the real winter in Canada, come to Niagara Falls. It is a real treat if you come from November to January. Do not forget your camera as the view is spectacular. It is really cold and you will witness the clinging spray of the Falls blankets the trees, rocks and even the lamp post form a unique frozen shapes.
Come and enjoy the Winter Festival of Lights which features lights displays that is so romantic and breathtaking. There is also entertainment coupled with the illuminated backdrop fo the Niagara Falls.
Come visit us in Canada and see for yourself.
Visiting Niagara Falls in winter is a different experience. While the thunder and spray of the falls is probably the same as in summer, the winter wonderland around the falls gives it a totally different look and feel. It's so cold that the spray from the falls freezes on the trees and branches. Since the Maid of the Mist runs only in summer, the winter tour substituted the boat ride with a tour "behind the falls". Great experience!
Walked to Fallsview Casino - short walk time to talk and reconnect. Fallsview Casino - nice, clean. Buffett - excellent. Try to get a table with a view of the Falls - wonderful. Shopping not what I expected. Food court - could have more types.
This is a wonderful time to see the Falls. With all the snow covering them and parts of it frozen, it just looks like something out a fairy tale. Yes, it is a bit cold to stand outside and really view them but you know what, you kind of forget how cold it because they are just beautiful. If you're not a big fan of standing out in the cold, I suggest you go to the top of The Skylon Tower or The Minolta Tower and get a birds eye view of the Falls
Not only is Niagara Falls amazing in the summer, but the winter months provide some spectacular setting. Huge ice flows and snow settling on the bottom. Worth a visit any time of year.
With below 20c temperature and sometimes less(!), the picture of Niagara Falls looks like an ice castle of fairy tales! I guess it looks very nice at summer time too!
