Step by step guide to planning your ideal Niagara Falls trip!

The Niagara Falls that flow between Canada and the United States are one in all the wonders of the natural world, drawing newlyweds, families, and nature lovers alike. Over the years, it has gained a name as being one of America’s most romantic cities. Local hotels offer special packages for couples, and chapels in the city provide a Vegas-style marriage service for brides and grooms-to-be. Ride the SkyWheel, take a wine tour and relax in bridal suites for a romantic escape like no other. The falls themselves are magical, but they look even more gorgeous when accompanied by firework displays and illuminations.  

What to do 

1.Visiting the Miraculous Falls 

Imagine standing on the viewing platforms above Niagara Falls, the waters of the Niagara River crashing down 180 feet and sunlight creating a rainbow in the water as it cascades to the valley floor below. Trust me, this wonderful experience is memorable. 

2.Enjoy a Cruise on the Maid of the Mist 

Another way to experience the falls is from their base, and the best way to do so is by taking a cruise on the Maid of the Mist. Nothing is as amazing as seeing it up close while aboard the Maid of the Mist.It’s located in New York State along the USA/Canadian border. By the way, waterproof overalls are provided free of charge. 

When to visit 

Summertime is the best time to visit Niagara Falls, but it’s also tourist-rush season. If you can deal with the crowds and don’t mind paying peak prices, visiting between July and August is great. On the other hand, the Christmas holiday is also very attractive, because it is the winter Lantern Festival in Canada. Spring between March and May is an ideal season to catch a glimpse, as it is a good time to snap up cheap housing and enjoy the good weather. 

Where to Stay

As one of America’s most popular tourist destinations, it has no shortage of places to stay, with options to suit most budgets and needs. For students and backpackers, few places can beat the Wanderfalls Guesthouse, with cheap dorm beds. For millennials, Airbnb is another great way to choose. You can meet more strangers and develop friendships with them.
