Niagara Falls, a rushing, roaring tale of two cities

Niagara Falls comprises two cities across a natural wonder and a national border. The city in New York is connected to the one in Ontario via the Rainbow Bridge, which arches across the Niagara River Gorge and is a world-famous landmark in its own right. It’s the waterfalls that draw the crowds, though, and your Niagara Falls vacation rental will be a home base from which to explore these three magnificent marvels. The largest, Horseshoe Falls, stretches 2,600 feet wide and has provided inspiration for nature lovers, artists, and adventurers for centuries.

Things to do

Fun for the family and vineyard vines for the grown-ups

There’s more to draw families, friends, and honeymooners to Niagara Falls than just water. Whether your Niagara Falls vacation rental is on the American or Canadian side, you’ll be able to experience something unique. In the U.S., the Aquarium of Niagara offers exhibits and daily penguin, shark, and tidal pool feedings for naturalists of all ages. In Ontario, welcome to wine country. Several dozen vineyards dot the region, all within a 15- or 20-minute drive to the falls, so pick one or take the day for a whirlwind wine tour.

Activities

A complete view of the falls from above and below

The first thing visitors ask at Niagara Falls is how to get the best view. The glorious, raging waters are so big and beautiful, it’s hard to know where to begin. On the American side, the Maid of the Mist boat tour is a must. It’s been a favorite for more than 150 years and will take you right into the Horseshoe Falls basin, through roiling (but safe!) whitewater. On the Canadian side, the more adventurous in your group will be excited to book a helicopter tour, where your pilot will be your personal guide.

Weather

Cooling mists mean falling temperatures in Niagara Falls

Official reports declare Niagara Falls a humid, continental climate, but perhaps these cities' conditions should be awarded their own title; the “nothing else matters with a giant waterfall next to you” climate. Summers are warm but never too hot, maxing out at about 80ºF. Winters are cold, with temps dropping to just below freezing, but the waterfall effect means snow storms are rare. Summer is the ideal time to enjoy longer days and sunshine, so if you're booking your Niagara Falls vacation rental in high season, start looking a couple months in advance.

Natural features

When the ice melts away, the seagulls will play

The wonders that we now call Niagara Falls were created by the Wisconsin Glaciation, a continental ice sheet that drove through the area more than 10,000 years ago. When the ice melted, the upper Great Lakes emptied into the Niagara River and gradually cut a gorge through the cliffs. Now, travelers can enjoy not only the breathtaking falls but a diversity of wildlife: nineteen species of gulls, warblers, and herons, plus red and fox squirrels. In short, bring your binoculars and be quick with your camera.
