What To See

Niagara Falls State Park
America’s oldest state park is home to the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls.  Several tours and attractions within the park enable you to experiences the falls up-close. While the park itself is open year-round, many attractions are only open seasonally. 

Herschell Carousel Factory Museum
One of the last standing factories of its kind, this fascinating museum chronicles the production of wooden carousels in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. 

Das Haus German Heritage Museum
The history of Niagara is intrinsically tied to the German immigrants who made the area their home. The museum is housed in a cabin dating back to 1843. Open seasonally.

Weather

May to September is the peak visiting season for Niagara Falls. The days are long and warm, typically in the low 68°F region, and the nights are very comfortable with lows rarely dipping below 55°F.

Summer at Niagara Falls boasts perfect weather, but tends to get overcrowded - the queues for the Maid of the Mist Boat Tour can be frustratingly long. September is a highly recommended time to visit the Falls - all tours are running and it's not as crowded as high summer. The fall foliage in the area is an additional draw for October visitors.

In winter, the mist can freeze on the trees, creating a winter wonderland effect. While the falls are running at this time, most of the tours are not. Tours are generally closed until late spring, depending on the weather.
