Niagara Falls are amazing, and I recommend to everyone to go and see it. This has good shout of being my favorite day in the States. There's a sign that read "It's lucky you're speachless because no-one would hear you through the roar". I think that's quite fitting!
You can buy some kind of event pass for the day, which gives you access to 6 things - The Maid of the Mist, a walk to the viewing tower, The Cave of the Winds, the bus around the national park, the aquarium, and something else which was obviously irrelevant to me as I can't remember it.
The Maid of the Mist is a boat trip into the Horseshoe fall, and you, quite literally, can't see a metre in front of you. You get absolutely drenched, but a poncho looks after your clothes. You also get a great view of the American Fall and the Bridal Veil Fall.
The Cave of the Winds is a walk to the splash pool of the Bridal Veil Fall. Again, you get given a much needed poncho to keep your clothes dry. This is certainly worth the money.
We finished our day by having a lovely meal and bottle of wine at a very nice, but expensive, restaurant on the Canadian side, overlooking the Horseshoe Fall. We were still wearing our free Cave of the Winds flip flops, and looked a bit of state! It was perfect finish to a great day.
