While traveling to Niagara falls, which side (American side or Canadian side) is better? And what are the specialties of each side?
A: No matter Which side you are on, Niagara Falls is a spectacular sight. Here is a detail of the spots you can visit on each side: - American Side: You will be able to get up close to all three components: Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and American Falls. This side is much quieter the Canadian side. You can also take the famous Maid of the Mist boat ride. There are several viewing points at the rims of the Falls. - Canadian Side: While you can get to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls you can yet get gorgeous panoramas of both American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. This side appears to be safer and has more things to do with the family, which comes with a bigger expense. The area is more like an urban side attraction. You also have the option to take the Niagara Hornblower Cruises from the Canadian side. We recommend you to start from the American side. After taking advantages of all the activities in this side we suggest you cross the bridge by foot to Canada. Spend the afternoon enjoying the amazing views with a leisurely stroll in the Canadian side. You could grab a bite to eat over there for dinner or even choose to stay overnight.
