“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

The falls were quite different from what I've imagined: I've always pictured a remote place, where the falls would be in the hoods, with nature and trees...well, actually the falls are near hotels, casinos and parks. It was not as idyllic as I've imagined, but it is still impressive!
The strength of the water and the noise are incredible, especially the falls from the Canadian side!
We took the Maid of the Mist boat ride and it was the peak of the journey: it was so funny and despite the plastic raincoats we got quite wet.
The park near the falls has beautiful flowers and is very well-maintained and it seems that we were lucky because on that day it was very quiet and there were no many people there.
It's a nice experience and something you shouldn't miss, once you are near that area.

“Pay to see the falls”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

We couldn't belive they charge 15 dollars to park to see the falls How long would you stay there 30 minutes maybe what a rip off They also charge you parking to spend you money at the shops. really a rip off You get charged to park at a hotel you are staying in? What a total bummer Stayed 1 night and got the hell out of there.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Niagara Falls was beautiful! The parking was difficult to figure out, but we ending up hiking down a not-too-steep closed off path from a free parking lot. Great photo ops but lots of tourists every day/time we were there!

“Natural beauty that can't be beat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

We love the Falls. A great spot to go is Dufferin islands park area. Park there for free and have lunch by the water. The falls themselves never fail to amaze- beautiful.

“Taco Taquila, 5355 Ferry (also known as Lundys Lane) Niagara Falls Canada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

This food and the live Mariachi singers were fabulous, felt like yu were in Mexico, also these people are from Columbia. Makes no difference, the food was the best and so was the entertainment. I strongly suggest you go check it out. It is open outdoor atmosphere. Wonderful.905-371-8225. This is a restaurant
