Join the sightseeing tours of Niagara Falls,Niagara Falls bus tours from NJ,and just imaging the scenes,or take a river cruise to the base of the falls and see as the peaceful water crests the rim and turns into a raging torrent,or stand in the Cave of the Winds and feel the power of the falls as they rush past.
How to Get to Niagara Falls?
Buffalo-Niagara International Airport is around half an hour from Niagara Falls,and it's easy to transfer from there to local hotels.Buffalo Airport Shuttle provides a private transfer service for just over$20 per person(based on a family of four).You can also arrange taxis from the airport,which can cost as little as$10 per head if you are traveling in a large group.
Niagara Falls Amtrak station is served by two passenger rail services.The Empire Service starts at New York's Pennsylvania Station and terminates at Niagara,while the Maple Leaf runs between New York and Toronto.Expect the journey from New York to take around 5 hours.
Niagara Falls is easily accessible by car.If you are coming from the west,take I-90 along the shore of Lake Ontario.The same road also links Niagara Falls with New York,although you will need to take I-87 to Albany before switching to I-90.If you are coming from Toronto,just take Queen Elizabeth Way straight to the border.
If you intend to travel to Niagara Falls by bus,the best option is to book a Greyhound service.Greyhound run buses from most northeastern cities,including New York,Buffalo,Boston,and Philadelphia,and their terminal is outside the Quality Hotel at 240 First St.
