Weather InformationNiagara Falls experiences four seasons. Summer can be hot, with temperatures reaching into the low 80s. However, breezes and mist from the falls help cool things down. Winter can be cold and icy, with temperatures dipping below freezing. Spring and fall are fairly mild with temperature averages between the 40s and the low-70s.
Crowd InformationNiagara Falls gets very busy between June and August, especially during Independence Day celebrations.
Closure InformationMost hotels, shops, and attractions remain open throughout the year. However, several outdoor attractions close in the winter, especially those that tend to douse visitors with water such as the Maid of the Mist and Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours.
When to SaveThe most expensive time to visit is summer, when hotels and airlines increase their prices to accommodate the rise in tourism. Winter prices are lower, because there is less demand for rooms and airfare as there is in summer.
