The Niagara Falls sit across the boundary between Ontario in Canada and New York State in the United States. Whichever side of the Falls you choose to visit, it's an exciting and awe-inspiring spectacle which makes a great destination for a family holiday. And by searching for deals on rental homes in Niagara Falls, New York, it can be a surprisingly low cost natural wonder to visit!
Quite apart from staring at the splendour of the waterfall itself from the walkways at Prospect Point Park or the Prospect Point Park observation tower, there is plenty to do on the New York side of Niagara Falls. You can go hiking, cycling or fishing in the Niagara Falls State Park, or if some members of your family are not so keen on the great outdoors, you can explore both the Schoellkopf Museum (which chronicles the geology and natural history of Niagara Falls) and the Daredevil Museum (a slightly more colourful celebration of the adventurous people who have tried to conquer the Falls over the years). The Aquarium of Niagara is also an entertaining attraction for the whole family to visit. Around the Falls themselves, the Maid of the Mist boat cruise which takes passengers into the rapids beneath the waterfalls is an unmissable and unforgettable trip - just make sure the whole family is wearing their waterproof coats! After a hard day's waterfall-based entertainment the town of Niagara Falls also has some great little restaurants to enjoy a hearty dinner.
There are a huge variety of rental homes available for families in and around Niagara Falls, from condos and apartments to whole houses. With prices starting from around £600 for a week in a house large enough for a family of four or more, renting a home in the town becomes a money saving option when compared to the high cost of hotel rooms in the area. The properties are fully equipped for a comfortable holiday and provide greater privacy for families, and as some of them are within just 500 yards of the Falls themselves (within earshot of the roar of the tumbling water), you will always feel you're at the centre of the action.
