For some, March might not be one of the better months to visit Niagara Falls owing to the winter’s chilly grip and closure of tourist attractions in anticipation of upcoming peak season. However, for those eyeing a budget-friendly slow-pace tour to Niagara Falls, there’s no better month than March . . . and here we explain why!


Why Visit Niagara Falls in March?

Well, the answers are many – and quite logical ones too!


Lower Rates!

A visit in March would be far easier on budget due to low season. At this time of the year, you’d find everything cheaper than peak season – from hotel rooms to food, and from entry tickets to transportation.


Fewer People!

March sees low tourist footprint, and this means you can avoid the teeming crowds. Low season means less people visiting the city, and this implies plenty of elbow room and breathing space to see it all without much hassle. Also, this means reservations can be super easy to make.


Slower Pace!

Most importantly, a visit to Niagara Falls in March would take place at a slower pace than that in Summer. This means Niagara Falls can be the best place to have some serene-paced vacation with your loved ones, or to have some solo me-time as you wander through its less-than-usual-busy streets & places.

When in Niagara Falls, an up & close encounter with Horseshoe Falls at the Journey Behind the Falls – a signature destination in Niagara Falls, Canada – is a must. Visiting this place during March will let you explore it at a slower pace, taking in its magnificent beauty to the fullest.

On a partly sunny day (as Niagara Falls rarely has a full sunny day in March), consider hanging around at Queen Victoria Park, the "heart" of Niagara Parks. Explore the rock garden and hanging baskets here. Stroll through the Hybrid tea rose garden and appreciate the beauty of carpet-bedding displays. All in all, your day at this park will be a day well-spent.
