  • Every time you come here, the view just doesn't get tiring. It was a little strange being here with so few people. Very eery for sure but enjoyable as always.  more »
  • great to see at sunrise before a lot of people get there. Not a lot of people are going there at this time.  more »

  • One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. Must visit place if you are nearby. Don't forget to get watch during day time time as well as night ti.e when the fall is lit with colorful lights.
  • (Canadian side) Going in the winter/spring, it's much less crowded. Because of that, some of the regular tourist attractions are closed so check beforehand if you are looking to do something you usually do in the summer. Parking was pretty good, the main lot is pretty much across the street from the falls. It was $20 and they gave you a nice little tour book. Although, if it were summer that lot will be very busy. You'll probably have to walk from the ones farther away.
