Niagara Falls on the on the United States side has a very natural feel to it -- with the region was developed as parklands known as the Niagara Reservation. Most of the hostels in Niagara Falls, New York, are in and around Main Street and are only a short walk to get to the reservation, from which to view the falls.

There are walking paths that you can take from the visitors centre to get to the major viewing platforms of the American and Bridal Veil Falls from a side-on view and then of the Horseshoe Falls further back along the river. During the summer months, you can take the Maid of the Mist boat down into the bottom of the Horseshoe Falls to experience first hand the spray of the falls and their massive power as the water tumbles over the cliff face. Niagara Falls has the greatest flow rate of any waterfall in the world and the force of the water is spectacular. The view of the waterfalls is better from the Canadian side, so even if you're staying at a hostel on the US side, check your visa requirements and if you can, take a stroll over the Rainbow Bridge to the Canadian side of the falls for a couple of hours so that you can get a better and more frontal view of both of the falls.

If history is your thing, then a visit to the Old Fort Niagara should be on the list of things to do. There are also an abundance of factory outlet malls for shopping in around the region if you are out to score a bargain.
