How to getting around Niagara Falls? You can drive by yourself, or book the Niagara Falls tour from DC on the Globerouter.com website with discount price. The waterfalls are the main attraction here, and there's a range of ways to see them: from their foot on the legendary Maid of the Mist boat tours; from behind in caves accessible by elevator; from the sky hovering in helicopters; or gazing from observation towers.
Getting Around Niagara Falls:
The best way to get around Niagara Falls is on foot. Walking around the area is relatively easy (when there is no snow). Even getting across the United States to Canada border is only a 20-minute walk across the Rainbow Bridge. What's more, attractions are generally close together and within walking distance of one another.
If your feet are feeling a bit weary, you can hop on the area's efficient (and free) Discover Niagara Shuttle. Having a car can make your trip more stressful, since roads are prone to congestion and parking is very expensive.
On FootWhen unencumbered by the weather, strolling around the falls or the hotel areas of the Canadian or New York side can be leisurely and fun. Plus, the compact business areas can be enjoyed and fully explored on foot.
WEGO is a bus system that connects accommodations and attractions within the Niagara Falls area, including Lundy's Lane, Victoria Avenue, Clifton Hill, Fallsview, Main & Ferry and Queen Street. There are three different bus lines that all connect in Niagara Parks at Table Rock next to Horseshoe Falls.
This point is the main transfer hub from the blue and red lines (which mainly service the tourist areas) to the green line that offers trips through Niagara Parks. Though the service is not free (a 24-hour pass costs $7.50 for adults; $4.50 for children 6 to 12), it does run year-round. Hours vary by line and season, but generally, routes begin service around 9 a.m. and conclude around 1 a.m.
