I am a US citizen traveling to Buffalo for 4 days. Do I need a passport to visit the Canadian side of Niagra Falls?
i am traveling to the states in Mid October and wanted to do a 2-day tour to Niagra falls (US & Canada side!)
i am trying to work out what would be the best option available to experience a pleasant trip:
my options are:
A: Tour operator : $108-$125 (viator or taketours)
B: Take the plane route and use a hired car over there to get around (this is where i need advice from you guys!)
your views and personal experience much appreciated!
This Friday, my boyfriend is taking me up to New York for vacation (we live in Texas). He wants to take me to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, but my passport is expired. Can I go?
Hello I will be traveling with one other person from Shelton, CT to Niagara Falls, NY. We are looking for some information for any cool stops along the way and then once we get to the falls. We are on a tight budget so looking mainly to do outdoors activities and looking for camping spots. Any info is appreciated, thank you so much :)
We are traveling from Andover, Mass to niagra falls Canadian side. We will be leaving Andover around 5 pm. We will like to drive around4 to 5 hours and stop to sleep somewhere, and next morning arrive at niagra canada side.
I came to US on L2 and currently working on H1B. So I do not have stamping on my passport now. If I plan to visit Niagara Falls Canada side, Can I come back to USA with out stamping? and do I need to apply Canada Visa?
i will be driving from chicago to see the Niagara falls on the us side. will i need a canadian visa
Please help I cannot find how to get from Hamburg NY where I am staying to Niagara Falls (Canadian side). I am there for 1 day and need to book my transport in advance. I would like to go for the cheapest possible option but of course I am open to any suggestions as long as it gets me there.
I will be staying on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and need to catch a train on Monday 1st June at 12.30pm from the New York station on the American side.What is the best way to get to the station, where do you go through customs, how much time do I need to allow to catch the train? I also need to collect the ticket which has been booked from the ticket office. I will have gone through customs into United States earlier while on an Alaskan cruise from Vancouver. Thanks Joan.
My husband and I live in Texas but taking a different route to visit friends and family in Pennsylvania. We decided to make a one night stop in Niagara Falls and made a hotel reservation on the Canada side. I have been reading "horror stories" of incidents that have happened crossing to/from both sides, and very few good stories on that site. We are law-abiding U.S. citizens and are professionals. The horror stories have me/us second-guessing a trip to Canada to see the falls. Are there more "good" experiences than "horror" experiences out there about crossing the border?
I am planning a Road trip driving from Boston through to Niagara. Would this be crazy to try and do this journey in the 1 day when we have a 6 & 15 year old in the car. If crazy can anybody suggest some nice stop overs's for a family.
We are travelling in late July from Miami to Buffalo. We are spending the first night in Buffalo then heading to Niagara Falls. I have read that the Canadian side is "nicer" but we are open to staying either on the U.S. side or the Canada side. A relative told me that due to the exchange rate and lower taxes, he recommends the American side.
But, after we spend 2-3 days at Niagara Falls, we wll be heading to Toronto for a couple days so we will be in Canada eventually anyway. I think the tours we will be taking originate on the Canada side, so that is another reason to stay on that side. We are looking for hotels in the100-$150 range.
What does everyone recommend?
I have a question about driving to Niagara Falls from NYC (Mahattan).. My boyfriend will get off work at 5pm.. and we plan to drive all the way to Niagara Falls. I have been searching.. if I'm right, it will be around 7-9 hours of driving. Do you think I should not stop anywhere and check-in at Niagara Falls area ..
I should stop somewhere, (half trip) and continue driving in the morning to Niagara Falls? and where should we stop and stay over night? I will have mom&dad come with us. we plan to leave NYC Friday after his work done and come back anytime on Sunday.
Please help me plan this.. it will be for our honeymoon. and i want his mom&dad to be happy and not too tired.
Thanks a bunch.

we would like ask for any help that you can give because our booking for 2-day tour from new york to niagara falls has been cancelled. And according to the tour service that they dont have sunday trip i.e. 27 May. We checked the bus and train and they are a bit expensive and dont know if its practical to use them. We would like to ask if you have any suggestions. We are planning to go back to new york on the 28 May because we need to fly back to LA on the 29 May.
Will appreciate any help you can give because we need to complete our booking as soon as possible.
thanks and regards,

I am visiting New York from Los Angeles this Fall and I wanted to visit Niagara Falls. So, my plan now is to fly from Los Angeles to Buffalo, rent a car and spend a night in Niagara Falls on the Canada side. Then, I'll drive to New york and drop the car at one of the car rental locations. I am planning to stay a week in New York. What do you members think about this plan? Any advice?
I appreciate any comments. Thanks.
My family and I are touring NY State this summer. I can stay at Niagara Falls for either 2 or 3 days before heading to Watkins Glen State Park. Without running like a lunatic, is 2 days adequate to see the main attractions at Niagara? Would staying for 3 days leave me looking for something to do too early in the day? I am planning on staying on the Canadian side and we prefer to travel in the evenings and spend our days at each location.
Thanks for your help!
Hi, I'll be in Buffalo for a couple of days, and I plan to go over to the Canada side of Niagara falls. Can I know whether its better to take the bus / walk or to rent a car?
Has anybody done one of the day tours from New York to Niagara Falls? There seems to be a few different companies out there advertising, but all seem similar. They are all about 12-14 hour days,but a day trip is the only way we can get out there to have a look. Living in country Australia, this amount of time does not bother us, but not sure whether the cost (around450ea) is actually worth it.
My brother is planning a last minute wedding, so in a few weeks he will be married at Niagara Falls. I am not familiar with the area, but I understand his ceremony will be on the NY side in or near Prospect Point. We would like a place, hopefully within walking distance for the immediate family to stay. It doesn't need to be fancy but clean and nice. My brother had heard of the Red Coach Inn, which looks good on the website. He also mentioned Quality Hotel & Suites, but some of the reviews mentioned bed bugs--eeeekkk! Any hotels or B & B's you would recommend?
We also would like a place to eat a dinner the night before the wedding and also a spot for lunch. It doesn't need to be super fancy but the dinner should feel special. Any recommendations? Thanks!
Traveling by train in June from New York to Niagara Falls station on American side. We're staying at Embassy Suites on Canadian side. Any suggestions on how we get to our hotel? Cab??? How expensive??
I am planning on visiting Niagara Falls on the weekend before memorial day this year with my girlfriend for our 2 year anniversary. Right now it looks like we will be staying for the weekend getting there on Friday late morning/early afternoon. We live in Milwaukee WI and the ride is roughly 10 hours plus some time for stopping. We are planning on visiting both the Canadian and the US side. I read that the Canadian side was better, is it even worth visiting the US side? Also are there any must do's when we are there on each side?
Also I was wondering how many days will we need? Should we stay till Monday morning or leave sunday afternoon (keep in mind the 10 hr drive). We just plan on doing the must-do attractions, since we are both in college and on a tight budget. If anyone knows any cheap but clean hotels to stay that would also be very helpful. Nothing to fancy just want to have a clean room.
Thanks for any help,
Well I have a friend who needs to go to Buffalo in March..and I was thinking of going to for the weekend..going to Niagara Falls.
Would this be stupid?? Is it all Frozen? I know I won't be able to do some things that are on my list like the Maiden Mist etc..but is it worth going!!
Ideas for things to do during this time of year would be great!
We are travelling to Niagara Falls (US Side) and need suggestions on budget hotel/motel around Niagara. We have earlier stayed in Holiday Inn close to falls but this time we are on a tight budget.
OK to stay a couple of miles away (as we will be driving). Nothing fancy, just clean rooms and no bugs (from whatever review I see bugs is a major problem in many hotel)
Ill be visiting Niagara Falls without a Canadian Visa (I have a Philippine passport), would it be worth my while? we plan to drive from Chicago and stay overnight before proceeding to New York City. Any suggestions how long I need to stay there if i can only be on the US side?
