Niagara Falls in the Summer

Visiting Niagara Falls in the Summer

Niagara Falls is one of the most popular destinations for honeymoons, weddings and family vacations. In the top lists of the most visited places in the world, the waterfalls annually attract over 8 million tourists. Most of them in the summer. The reasons for this are, first of all, the pleasant climate – warm days and cool nights, the attractions open at this time of year, the summer vacations of pupils and students, as well as the fact that most weddings are organized in the summer.

In the summer months from June to August, average temperatures range from 14 to 28 degrees and it is quite humid. This means that it is still good to be prepared with an outer garment for the evenings.

In the warm months, you can watch the waterfalls from a bird’s eye view by helicopter or MistRider Zipline, feel the water power with Maid of the Mist or get excited by jet boat ride. These and many more are all attractions that you can enjoy only in summer.

Hotels and travel agencies offer great summer packages with a variety of attractions and entertainment included. There are packages created especially if you travel with children and if you are with friends and want to have fun. It all depends on your mood, hobbies, and desires. 

As for the hotels – you have a wide choice from luxury high-class hotels with all amenities, to lower-budget motels. It is important to make a reservation early because in the summer season everything is often full.

You can also stay camping on both the American and Canadian sides of the falls. The difference between the two is that the Canadian side offers more opportunities for shopping and nightlife.

You can visit Clifton Hill, especially if you are traveling with your family. There you can find children’s entertainment, a wax museum, snack bars, and restaurants in one place. In the summer evenings, you can also enjoy the fireworks illuminating the waterfalls.

In summer, almost all attractions are open, so it’s a good idea to make a list of places you want to visit, book a hotel early and prepare for the crowds which are mandatory at this time of year. However, summer remains the favorite season to visit Niagara.
