Perhaps the most well-known attraction in Canada, Niagara Falls plays host to millions of visitors each year.

Three separate waterfalls straddle the border between Canada and the United States, collectively forming the Niagara Falls. Together they make up the southern end of the Niagara Gorge. Aside from the obvious draw of the Falls themselves, the two cities taking their names from the Falls - Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York - offer places to stay, dining options and numerous attractions to keep visitors busy day and night.

On the Ontario side, the Sky Wheel, the Botanical Gardens, Jetboating, golf and wine tours are sure to make you want to extend your stay here. Nightlife is plentiful – the Clifton Hill area resembling a mini Las Vegas as day turns to night – and a stroll back down to the Falls illuminated at night is a must-do on your bucket list.

The Niagara Falls area is dotted with campgrounds for those travelling by RV but it's best to book a spot in advance. Take advantage of the public transportation options offered by the WEGO, which connects many campgrounds to the tourist attractions throughout the city, giving you the option to leave your RV on your site and not have to struggle with parking. Day passes are available for a reasonable cost.

If you were to ask someone to describe Niagara Falls in one word, that word may well be "Indescribable"!
