Benefits of Niagara Falls

Currency Exchange Savings
Nearly every business in Niagara Falls accepts both American and Canadian dollars, this allows visitors to attend attractions on both sides of the International border.

Niagara Parks Police (Parkland), Niagara Regional Police (City), Ontario Provincial Police (Highways), Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Canada Border Services Agency employees (International Crossings). Safety is in abundance in Niagara Falls.
