The city of Niagara Falls, Ontario does not have an extensively difficult street/expressway system to navigate. The only expressways are Highway 420 and the QEW ( Queen Elizabeth Way) which do not directly go through the centre of town, therefore most of the city is 2-4 lane roads with traffic lights, so bring your patience because traffic levels fluctuate in the heart of the different tourist areas. Getting into the city from the U.S. can be a traffic hassle also, waiting at the border. Give yourself some time. Entrance is primarily from the Rainbow Bridge.
Note: 420 is an expressway only to Stanley Avenue. QEW does not have an exit at Lundy’s Lane; best bet is using 420 to Stanley Avenue or Victoria Avenue.
The main tourist area is boxed in by the QEW to the west, Highway 420/ Falls Ave to the north, Niagara River Parkway to the east and McLeod Rd. in the south.
Getting around is quite simple. The main tourist areas are:
Niagara Falls also has a Visitor Transportation System that operates throughout the main tourist areas; for details, see Inside Niagara Falls: Public Transportation here at TripAdvisor.
