Tell Us Your Travel Tips for Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of the top tourist attractions in the world. The name refers to an American city, a Canadian city, two American falls, and one waterfall that crosses the international border. Millions of people feed their homes from these falls. People ride boats under them, roll barrels on them and build Ripley’s Believe It Or Nots next to them. This week on Hack Your City, we want to hear when to visit, what to do on both sides of the border, and how to best experience the falls. (We’ll also grab your hacks for nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake.)

Every Monday onHack Your City, we ask readers for the best tips about the city: driving tips, restaurant tips, entertainment, and any other tips for visitors and locals alike. Then, on Thursday, we present the best comments. We work in the USA and around the world.

What is underestimated? Which places deserve a few more discerning visitors? And what tricks can turn a normal ride into a great one? What do you like the most there?

How should a visitor approach the city? What position should they take? What local traditions, behavior, and laws should they be aware of? What should they know about the city’s past and present? How friendly are the locals and how can visitors get along with them?

How does it feel in the long run? What do you love and hate about the city? What advice can you give to other residents? How do you drive to work, what is your daily lunch spot, or the best place to watch? What mistakes do new residents make – some Shibboleth street names or strange parking rules? How often do you cross the border and how can you make it easier? Where do you go if you want to go out of town for a day or a week?

Finally, how has the atmosphere of the city changed over the past few years? What old travel tips are no longer valid here, and what new ones?

Leave your tips in the comments below and we’ll highlight the best ones. (Read some of the other comments first to make sure yours is unique.) Then come back Thursday for a new post with highlights.
