Where in the world is it?
On the border of Ontario and New York; the Canadian side offers a view of Horseshoe Falls.
When should I visit?
Summer is best temperature-wise, but the crowds tend to be bigger, so plan to arrive early in the day.
How close can I get?
The Whirlpool Aero Car, an antique cable car in operation since 1916, takes you on a ride above the Niagara Whirlpool rapids. (It’s only open April through November.)
Keep your eyes peeled:
Niagara Falls is considered the honeymoon capital of North America, so you may see more than a few lovebirds.
