Niagara Falls Travel Guide
View from Prospect Point of the Majestic...
The American Falls, with Canada on the...
Less crowds, more brink-of-the-falls viewpoints
Rather depressed area on the USA side due to corrupt politicians
In a nutshell
See the Falls and call it a day.
Great being wet!
When you are on the Niagara Falls, you certainly should not miss the experience with the famous "Maid of the mist". The ride is alltogether I think about half an hour long (I did not take care about that) and you get very wet if you chose to stay outside on the boat and not...
Goat Island is the place to go to get some of the best and closest views of the Niagara Falls. As a part of Niagara Falls State Park, it is a great place to walk around and witness the fury of the water. We rode on the Niagara Scenic Trolley to the southwestern extremity of...
Aquarium of Niagara
The Aquarium of Niagara doesn't have the splash of the larger water-themed parks on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, but it makes for an interesting, educational visit.For a fraction of the price you would pay to go to Marineland, whose treatment of animals remains...
THE FALLS- TOURS
The Maid of the mist tour is quite an experience as the boat passes the Bridal Veil Falls then directly in to the misty Horseshoe Falls. You can also take the Cave of the Winds Tour that takes you right into the falls then later you can walk to the deck which is just a few...
Bridal Veil Falls ~ New York Side
The Bridal Veil Falls is the smallest of the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls. It is located on the U.S. side (New York State). The Bridal Veil Falls faces to the northwest and has a crest 56 feet (17 m) wide.
The falls are beautiful to see, but for a different perspective try crossing the Rainbow Bridge and walk along the falls from the Canadian side too.The Canadian side of the falls is a bit more scenic then the American side. Lots of gardens and parks.
Side trip to Toronto 1 1/2 hour away
Instead of going to NYC, why not do the vacation in Toronto??? You get to see Niageria Falls, stay in the Embassy Suites with a fall views,,,the best, and then go to the winery the next morning in the Canada side and be sure to get some Ice Wines...hard to find in the...
Don't miss experiencing the Falls.
I lived in the area for several years. Many people miss Goat Island and the 3 Sisters Islands on the NY side. I know most people like the Canada side because you get a good view of the falls. The Canada side also has more tourism. But you can really experience the river and...
Bridal Veil Falls
From Luna Island via Goat Island you can see the Bridal Veil Falls, the smallest of the waterfalls, in the Park. Luna Island separates them from the American Falls and Goat Island does the same but from the Horseshoe Falls.
Goat Island is a big island off the Niagara Falls and connects between both the American and Horseshoe Falls. The Island is accessed by the American Rapids Bridges that crosses the American Rapids and the American Falls.

"Top of the Falls': Great view on the Horseshoe Fall
In the park itself where the Falls are (I am talking about the American side of the Falls) there is not a big number of restaurants, but I can suggest to have a meal in the restaurant "Top of the Falls" mostly because of its location. The food there is quite OK, but the...
Donatello's: Pizza and Wings
The pizza was wonderful. I think the best part was the owner. I notice on the menu that he also had Buffalo wings and I told him that I'd never had them before. I also told him about finding his place by reviews online. He seemed very proud of that and he also became like a...
Crossing Rainbow Bridge on foot
Rainbow Bridge is the first place we ever changed countries on foot. Linking the cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York, it offers splendid views of the Niagara River and Falls. It's OK to stop and take pictures of the scenery while crossing the...

It can get crowded, windy and rainy
Always keep a light water resistant jacket and an umbrella handy. It is definitely windy all the time and if it is not raining, it could be showers from the falls and rapids that can wet you. Keep checking for your camera as water droplets on the lens may get unnoticed and...
Prevention against nature
I strongly recommend that some members of the entourage have backpacks.
Clothing will depend upon season, but light water-resistant jackets in summer will come in handy. I also recommend comfortable hiking shoes even though my daughter tends to hike even in her party...
Devils Hole State Park
Overlooking the lower whirlpool rapids, this 42-acre park features a nature trail; gorge caves; picnic area; winter snowshoeing and cross-country skiing; and a spectacular 300-foot walkway that winds its way along the Niagara River. At the end of it, you're treated to a...

History of the Goat Island
From the website:http://www.answers.com/topic/goat-islandJohn Stedman – an early pioneer and miller – kept a herd of goats on the island. Upon returning to the island after the terrible winter of 1780, Stedman found all but one of the goats had died; thus giving the island...
