About Niagara Falls

Every year this natural wonder attracts more than 12 million visitors from all over the world looking to see the gorgeous Niagara Falls. Actually composed of three massive waterfalls -Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls - Niagara Falls straddle the border between the United States and Canada. Niagara Falls tours run throughout the year, whether rain or shine or snow. Spring and summer are the most popular times to visits as the famous Maid of the Mist cruise runs seasonal and gets visitors up close and personal with the falls. However, even in winter the falls are a sight to see, as the normal 85,000 cu ft/s flow of water can become a frozen wonderland. Even with the cruise closed in winter there is still many tours of Niagara Falls, especially for the gorgeous Niagara Falls Illumination Show. Throughout there year visitors can also enjoy day trips to Goat Island, which offers sweeping views of Horseshoe Falls and Bridal Veil Falls; the Cave of the Winds tour, which brings summer visitors as close as 30 feet from Bridal Veil Falls; and the IMAX feature presentation at Niagara Adventure Theater.
