Niagara Falls is very commercialised, but well worth a trip, and three days sounds just right. A trip on the Maid of the Mist is essential, to experience the force and beauty of the water. All other attractions- Behind the Falls, The Boardwalk and Spanish Cable Car- are also worth doing, although not as exciting.
The best time to visit Niagara Falls is June to August. Summer is peak season, and with good reason: Average highs rest in the low 80s. Mists and breezes from the waterfalls can make the area feel cooler.
