Niagara Falls - Canada

Niagara Falls is divided into the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls. The Horseshoe Falls drop about 173 feet (53 m). The American Falls drop about 70 feet (21 m) before reaching a jumble of fallen rocks that were deposited by a massive rock slide in 1954. The larger Horseshoe Falls are about 2,600 feet (792 m) wide, while the American Falls are 1,060 feet (323 m) wide. The volume of water approaching the falls during peak flow season is 202,000 cubic feet per second (5,720 m³/s). By comparison Africa's spectacular Victoria Falls has over 15 million cubic feet (424,750 m³) of water fall

Discussion on Niagara Falls

nikki12345 :

I am staying at this place when I visit Niagara Falls, Ferry Ave, Niagara falls, 14301, USA. I have been told that Buffalo airport is closer, but looking at the map, Niagara Falls international airport appears closer. Which is correct. Also what is there to do in this area in 1 day/night? We will be relying on walking or public transport. thanks

Sawbuck :
"Niagara Falls Airport is much closer, but doesn't have many scheduled flights -- mostly charters to overseas. So Buffalo is it, for practical purposes. What to do -- visit Cave of the Winds on American side of river. Take Maid of the Mist boat tour. This will give you two different perspectives on the falls. Also very nice is to take a walk around Goat Island and along the edge of the Upper Rapids. Lookout points on top of the cliffs at the edge of each of the falls. If you have time to cross the bridge to Canada, go to Table Rock House on the Canadian side where you can go down into a tunnel and come out BEHIND the main falls, the Horseshoe falls. Waterflow is far greater than at the American falls where Cave of the Winds is located. But both are great attractions. Also on Canadian side is the Spanish Aero Car, a cable car ride over the centre of the Niagara River Whirlpool. If you want a more natural type of attraction, walking trails down through forest and rocks to the edge of the Niagara Rapids at the Niagara Glen. Best sight on Canadian side is the coloured floodlighting of the falls at night. Not sure of transport in Niagara Falls NY, but in Canada the Niagara Parks Commission operates the PeopleMover, a shuttle bus system connecting all the places I mentioned. It runs all day and you pay a single fare to get on and off as many times as you like. The bridge connecting the two countries is only 2 minutes to walk across. Bring photo ID for customs inspection."

i need information on black slavery in Niagara falls. like how Niagara falls helped change freedom for a lot of black people. plzz and thank you

"There is a museum in Niagara Falls specifically all about the Underground Railroad and one man in particular. I lived there all my life until quite recently, but cannot seem to recall the name. I know it is on Peer Street........................Sorry, that probably does not help much."
anita b :
"Niagara Falls was one of the entry points of the underground railroad,African Americans fleeing slavery in the states would be boated across the river upstream from the falls onto Canadian soil,this was just a stop-over as it was to close to the border to be really free. There were Canadians here that would turn in the blacks to slave hunters for a fee so they were moved either further north or east from there . African Americans were free people in Canada but they still had many hardships,they could only find menial work and lived in bad housing.But at least no one owned them. Hope this helps you a bit."

i am going to niagara falls this month and i was wondering if my sister and i need a passport to get to the canadian side .. i am 15 and she is 9 .. we are going with our parents who do have passports but i didnt know if we needed them too .. we dont have passports so we will have to stay on the american side if we need them also does anyone have great attractions on either side ?? or any ideas on other fun things to do thanks !

amandabanana87 :
"No, you don't need a passport. A birth certificate and some form of photo id is fine. Clifton Hill is right over the Rainbow Bridge. There are lots of fun things to do there such as haunted houses and wax museums. Make sure to go on the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. There is also something called Journey Behind the Falls in Canada. Make sure to see the falls at night as they're illuminated!"
Fozzie :
"if you're from the U.S. you just need your birth certificate. Especially if you're travelling with your parents."
Melissa R :
"no, i dont think either of you will require a passport. here is a website for tourism info... "
zhentou_1 :
"Your parents will need passports for each of you and in addition they will need proof they are your parents and also will need your birth certificates. The falls themselves are very,very spectacular from either side but also on the Canadian side is Madam Toussaudes' wax museum with all their famous guests both old and new including your present president and all the way back to Jesus with his apostles at the last supper.Enjoy your vacation!!"
jimmy crack corn :
"Zhentou is wrong, pay no attention to him, you do not need passports to drive into canada, in fact your parents won't even need them but if they have them it will make it easier. There is lots to do, marineland, which is canada's version of seaworld, the maid of the mist boat ride, clifton hill has haunted houses, wax museums, rides, a fun house, a maze, mini putt, arcades, ripley's and guiness museums and more, there is a butterfly conservatory and botanical garden, the skylon tower, an imax theatre featuring journey over the falls, there is a cool fountain show at the fallsview casino ( just in the atrium, not the actual casino so everyone can watch it ), there is a tight rope walker that walks between the hotel roofs, there's dufferin islands ( a really nice park with many islands to explore and ducks and geese to feed ), they light the falls up at nighttime and on friday and sunday nights they have fireworks over the falls, there is the fallsview waterpark which is really fun. All this stuff is on the canadian side I don't know what is on the american side, i've never been."
apocaliste :
"Sadly nobody gave you the right answer I am affraid since regulations changed in date of 31st December 2006. It all depends on the way you travel. If you travel by air and sea, then YES you need a passport. If you travel by road, then NO you are still safe, but not for so long. You still can get in without a passport and with a birth certificate. Contact the US Department of State for more info, or the local canadian embassy."
Danielle614 :
"You'll only need a original birth certificate or a certified copy of it and a photo ID. Visit, "Cliftonhill.com"-- You will find so many fun things to do. It's a must to go to Clifton Hill..."

Located in the heart of the Niagara Falls, the Skylon Tower is the most famous landmark next to the Falls. Situated just steps from the Falls and across from Fallsview Casino.

Logie’s Creek tumbles 41 metres over the escarpment to form Tews Falls, just a few metres less in height than Niagara Falls. Though the flow of Logie’s is substantially less that the main branch of Spencer Creek, the sheer height of the falls is what makes it such a stunning sight. There are two platforms just off the Bruce Trail that allow visit
