Niagara Falls is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Western Hemisphere, with nearly 14 million visitors frequenting the famous falls and the surrounding area annually. Helping all those travelers find their way is the job of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and  Niagara Falls Tourism.

 The Ministry of Tourism operates three travel information centers in the area—one in the city of Niagara Falls (at 5355 Stanley Ave.), one at nearby Fort Erie (100 Goderich St.) and one in St. Catharines (Westbound Q.E.W. Garden City Skyway), all stocked with maps and brochures and staffed by people who know the region inside and out. Stop in for tips on finding the best tours, or for help making those last minute hotel and restaurant reservations.

In addition,Niagara Falls Tourism (located in Pyramid Place beside the Skylon Tower) has an excellent website full of guides, maps and travel tips, as well as broader information on traveling to Canada in general like (what to expect when crossing the border, how currency exchange works and some useful phone numbers). You can also check out the Chamber of Commerce’s website for more information on the city itself.
