Growing up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada one almost takes going to Niagara Falls for granted -what an absolute magnificent experience it is. It’s a trip you do with your family, your school and when anyone comes to visit you. I’ve been so many times I couldn’t begin to list them and although I love it every time I see it. I never grow old of waiting in line with my poncho for the ride on the Maid of the Mist (The ferry ride underneath the falls). Or the walk right along the edge that makes me feel a little dizzy at the power of the rushing water flowing over the edge.
My daughter just got back from a school trip there. It was her fifth trip. She still loved it. It’s an amazing place. If you can get a room overlooking the falls for a spectacular view then that is great but not necessary. You will have plenty of time to walk around and take in the sights.
In my opinion, don’t stay for the tourist traps in the area unless you love that stuff. They are over priced and full of tourists. See the falls and get out of town. If you have time go to a little town about 35 minutes away called Niagara on the Lake and spend a week. It’s worth your time. Check out it’s website.
