Niagara Falls


Niagara Falls has been a bucket list destination for me and seemingly everyone else I talk to! It's a great family sightseeing opportunity, able to accommodate the little ones! So here are some details on visiting, what to do, where to stay and when to visit.

CROSSING THE BORDER- You definitely should visit the falls from the Canadian side. That being said, if you're a US citizen, you'll need an enhanced driver's license or passport to cross the border.

SEASON- Niagara Falls is epic, no matter the season! I visited last summer, and it was beautiful. I saw rainbows from the sun all through the falls on my Maid of the Mist tour. Keep in mind the warmer seasons tend to mean more people show up, and it could get crowded. My last trip was a cold and cloudy April day, which was still super cool. It was really nice roaming and taking photos with fewer people around!


-Walk the falls, especially at night when they light up!

-Check out the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens.

- Hike the Niagara Glen!

-On Thursday nights, the Niagara Falls History Museum offers free admission from 5:00-9:00 pm.

Visiting Niagara Falls has a very touristy feel similar to Vegas or Atlantic City. Things you can do inside would be the wax museum, finding a haunted house, or go to the arcade! There are so many other options I couldn't possibly highlight them all!

If you are looking for some interactive Niagara Falls activities, there are lots of activity packages offered online. Activities include ziplining with a view of Niagara Falls, taking a boat tour of Horseshoe Falls, visiting the Skylon Tower, riding the Skywheel, and helicopter rides.


If you're staying the night, Air B&B is your best friend. I stayed at The Pink Elephant. It was two bedrooms and was super comfortable. It is about a 15-minute walk to the falls and all the action.
