Starting with the summers, we would like to tell you that because of the weather conditions all year round at this location; you will find it at its best in summers. The period is classified as June-August, and it is considered to be warm there. However, for people who are used to living lives under the sun or in dry cities, you will still find Niagara Falls cooler.

This is because of two reasons. Firstly, the temperature hardly raises more than 24ºC as that is the high average of temperature in July with a low average of 16ºC. Secondly, it also rains quite a lot in July, which makes the temperature cool down. If you plan on going there in the summers, you should bear in mind that your expenses can increase as the rates for hotels and travel get higher in peak weather.
