Niagara Falls is a great place to visit as a digital nomad. There are plenty of things to see and do, and the scenery is stunning.
Many people believe that Niagara Falls is entirely located within the United States. However, this is not the case! Niagara Falls actually consists of two waterfalls: the American Falls and the Canadian Falls. While the American Falls are located entirely within the US, the Canadian Falls are located partially in Canada and partially in the US.
As a result, when people visit Niagara Falls, they are actually visiting two different countries! Interestingly, the Canadian side of the falls is considered to be more scenic than the American side. So, if you're looking for a truly picturesque experience, you'll need to make sure to visit both sides of the falls. (Here's a TikTok I made about my trip to Niagara
Viewing the falls from above was breathtaking. The vastness of the landscape was awe-inspiring. Below, the falls were just as spectacular. The water was crashing down with such force that it was amazing to watch. From Canada, we had a different perspective of the falls. We could see the entire falls and all the different levels. It was incredible. By boat, we were able to get up close and personal with the falls. The water sprayed us and we got soaked, but it was worth it.
Underneath the falls was an experience I will never forget. The noise was deafening and the water was so powerful that it took my breath away. Overall, viewing the falls from all these different vantage points was an amazing experience.
Ken's mom visited while we were there and we had a girl's day out! We got up early and walked across The Rainbow Bridge into Ontario. We decided to walk across the rainbow bridge into Canada because it seemed like a lot more fun than driving and there were no lines to get through customs.
After that, we took a taxi to Niagra on the Lakes. We did some shopping, tasted some local wines, and had lunch at two different places. It was a lot of fun! Ken's mom is great company and I'm so glad we got to spend some time together.
Niagara Falls is a popular tourist destination, so there are plenty of accommodation options available. You can find everything from budget hostels to luxury hotels. But if you want to save money, you might want to try Airbnb. We pretty much live exclusively in Airbnbs at this point. You can often find great deals on accommodation, and you'll have the opportunity to stay in a more unique setting than a traditional hotel. Plus, Airbnb offers guests the chance to interact with their hosts, which can add an extra layer of fun to your trip. So if you're looking for a budget-friendly option for your Niagara Falls vacation, be sure to check out Airbnb.
We stayed in an Airbnb, a three-story house, that was about a 10-minute walk to the falls. The house had been restored, and it was clear that a lot of care had gone into making it look just like it did when it was first built. But despite its age, the house was very comfortable, and we quickly began to feel at home. We even made friends with the owners of the house, who told us all about the history of the area.
There are plenty of things to see and do in Niagara Falls. Be sure to check out the falls themselves, as well as the local restaurants and parks.
We went to Cave of the Winds and got soaked! It was so much fun. We got to walk behind a waterfall and feel the mist on our faces.
The Maid of the Mist boat tour is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Niagara Falls. The tour takes you right up to the base of the falls, where you can feel the power of the water and see the mist rising up from the bottom. The Maid of the Mist has been operating since 1846, and it is one of the longest-running tourist attractions in North America. The tour is a great way to see the falls up close, and it is also a great way to cool off on a hot day
Both tours are definitely worth taking if you are visiting Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls can be a busy place, so be sure to take some time to relax and enjoy the scenery. There are plenty of parks and green spaces where you can sit back and take it all in. We took a lovely hike through Whirlpool Park. The weather was perfect for hiking, and the scenery was breathtaking. We saw amazing rock formations, and we even got to see a whirlpool in action. It was a great way to spend a day, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great hiking trail.
