Visit the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens for a fun afternoon or stop by the Aquarium of Niagara for an enjoyable day with the whole family. If you want to save some scratch, book a trip to Niagara Falls during the fall season. Rates drop significantly after the summer months but all of the attractions are still open. If you’re an American visiting the falls you’ll notice that tipping is customary here. Add a 15% tip to restaurant bills.
