Default Photographing Niagara Falls

I have some plans to head to Niagara Falls for New Years this year. I've been there a few times, but this will be the first experience with my DSLR there. I was wondering if anyone had any good tips or locations in Niagara for photographing. Thanks. Merry Christmas

NIAGRA FALLS! Slowly I turned ... step by step ... inch by inch ...

The Canadian side has a better view. You don't get much of a view of the American Falls from the American side.

Ya go up the Skylon tower and get some great shots. Its on the Canadian side. As long as you bring money Canadians dont care who comes into their country.

If I'm not mistaken, you also need a passport now.

Only if you're flying. See Entry/Exit Requirements.

Im not sure about passports. Flying or otherwise. You Yankees are more uptight about wanting a passport. Like I said as long as you have money Canadians dont care who they let in. But if you want to get back to the States, you need something more than money.

Well, they also want everyone to have a photo ID and proof of citizenship. See Entry requirements.

Getting in to Canada is easy. Getting back to the US is a bit more difficult. You will need a passport, passcard, or enhanced driver's license to be allowed back in to your own country. (gets smellier all the time, doesn't it?)

It's worthwhile to get a passport if you ever plan to travel outside of the United States.
