Things to Do at Niagara Falls in March

Things to Do at Niagara Falls in March
Niagara Falls is a top destination for travelers because of the many different things to do. It's still popular with those seeking a romantic place to spend their honeymoon, but it's also popular with families and outdoor enthusiasts. In March, the temperature is fairly cold, but you'll still find many things to do.

Niagara River Recreational Trail

If you're not afraid of a little snow and ice, then consider hiking along the Niagara River Recreational Trail. This 35-mile long trail takes you right along the river, and while nature is the main focus, there are also side trails that lead you back into popular cities including Niagara Falls. There are four separate sections of the trail, and if you plan on seeing it all, expect to spend one to two hours on each section.

Horseshoe Falls

Visiting Niagara Falls in March is a different experience than you'll have if you visit during the warmer months because the falls are still partially frozen. You'll do a lot of walking on the tours of Horseshoe Falls and you should expect to get wet, even if you're covered with a rain poncho. Taking a tour of the falls gives you the chance to see things up close, without spending time stuck in line and fighting with other tourists. This is the largest of the three waterfalls that comprise Niagara Falls.
