However, there are lots of other worthwhile things to do on a short trip to Niagara Falls!
Spend some time enjoying the falls. I mean, really enjoying the falls. It's easy to spend just a few minutes there to be able to say you've seen Niagara Falls, but you could also spend a couple of hours walking along the boardwalk area and taking in the majestic power of this natural beauty.
Another great way to view the falls is by getting up close and personal! You could choose to take a boat ride through Hornblower Cruises on the Canadian side or "Maid of the Mist" on the U.S. side of the border. I was also a big fan of the Journey Behind the Falls, which is literally just that - a chance to see the falls from the other side, get a bit of information on the history from the falls, and actually feel the mist.

Although I just mentioned to avoid the touist locations, check out Skylon Tower by night if you get a chance. It's not too expensive, and the view of the fireworks is well worth the price.
