The Falls in Winter Jun 13, 2011
Niagara Falls is a beautiful place to go. Being Canadian I prefer the Canadian side of the falls, since you have an awesome view of both the American and Canadian falls. I grew up really close to it, so I've been quite a few times. If you go in the summer it's very busy, but there is a lot to do on Clifton Hill (wax museum, horror houses etc.). However, if you can brave the weather, I really suggest going to see the falls in the winter.

The difference is that in the winter the mist from the falls freezes almost instantly once it comes in contact with anything. So yes, you will get a bit icy, but all of the railings and surrounding buildings, lamp-posts etc. are also frozen. It's quite a beautiful thing to see. I much prefer the falls in the winter to in the summer. The coloured lights still shine on the falls, so you don't miss out on that. The Horseshoe Falls can be a bit obstructed because of the mist, but it's worth it.

The other great part is that you can get really close free parking because it's winter, and it's a lot less busy! Though, I do suggest bringing a tarp to put over your car if you can manage it.. it makes for a lot less scraping when you go to drive again.
