As one of the world's largest and most famous natural wonders, Niagara Falls is surely on most bucket lists—there's no denying that the mighty falls make for a spectacular sight, easily seen in a few days. And given the favorable exchange rate Americans will find while traveling in Canada, now's the time to bag a bargain and plan a trip to Niagara Falls.
Some travelers might find it easiest to visit the falls on a day trip from nearby Toronto and then spend the rest of their trip exploring the city, but for the full experience, book an option that includes a Maid of the Mist cruise and stick around to watch the evening light show. The Journey Behind the Falls experience, the view from the Skylon Tower and the night illumination cruises are other area highlights.
Also remember to save a day to head across the border and check out the views from the American side, where you can get up close to the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls on a cruise through the Niagara Gorge.
