The town of Niagara Falls on the Canadian side gives spectacular views of one of the world's most famous waterfalls. Known for having the greatest flow rate of water in the world, the power and beauty of the falls themselves are spectacular. From this side of the border, you get the best view of the American Falls, and the Horseshoe Falls, which collectively are known as the Niagara Falls. If you want to get right into the action, you can take the Maid of the Mist boat down into the bottom of the horseshoe and get sprayed with the mist coming off the falls. This attraction, like many of the others at Niagara Falls, only runs during the summer.

While there are fewer attractions running during the winter, don't be deterred from going at this time of year. The frozen-over river and the large chunks of ice going over the falls are absolutely stunning and give a completely different experience than going in the summer. At either time of year though you should take a raincoat to avoid getting wet from the mist.

Hostels in Niagara Falls are scattered, but many of them are located close to the Niagara Falls Bus Terminal which is serviced by numerous buses coming from mostly Toronto on a daily basis. Other hostels in Niagara Falls are located closer to the action of the falls and to the numerous tourist attractions and shops located along the main streets. Among the shops there are also many casinos that you can go visit. Many of them do quite an impressive buffet for an even more impressive price.
