We visited Niagara Falls in June. The area around the falls on the Canada side is like a city park, and along the opposite street are hotels with direct views of the falls. On the USA side, New York State has a state park with several areas for viewing. While in Niagara, we took a boat ride that gets as close to the falls as possible. In fact, we wore plastic ponchos because the mist will soak you! We had lunch at Skylon Tower, which gives an aerial view of the whole city, and we drove to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a small, 'old town' area with shops and restaurants. Several streets throughout the town of Niagara Falls have attractions, shops and restaurants like a tourist, beach town. Surprisingly, the weather was very much like home, with temperatures in the 80s and humidity during the day.
