Niagara Falls

What is the weather at Niagara Falls (both NY and Canadian) sides in the beginning of November? Also, how far from Cooperstown is Niagara Falls? What would be the best way to plan a trip from NJ to visit the Falls and Cooperstown in a four day period? Thanks for any help.

Cooperstown is at least 3 or 4 hours from Niagara Falls. Also there is not a huge amount of things to do around Cooperstown. I would head to Niagara for 2 full days, go to Cooperstown for 1 day and leave the next day to return to NJ. Or do the opposite.

We have had 75 degree days and we have had 3 inches of snow... most likely you will see high 50's and lows in the 40's... I would also recommend the Niagara trip first and Cooperstown on the way home... have fun!

The weather in NF will probably be in the mid-50's. I also agree with the other posters - spend 2 full days in NF. Stay on the Canadian side, there are much better hotel options - a Marriott, Sheraton and Embassy Suites all with Falls views. The only disadvantage to going in Nov is that all of the options for a close-up of the Falls are closed for the season(Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds etc.) But, the Falls themselves are still spectacular!

Oh gapper, I'm not trying to make fun of you, but your statement did make me smile:

"What is the weather at Niagara Falls (both NY and Canadian) sides in the beginning of November?"

It's not the Grand Canyon....there isn't much of a distance between the two sides. The temps will be the same on both sides!

(Please don't be mad, I'm just having fun with ya!)

Seriously, bring all types of clothing (and, of course, check out the forecast right up to your departure time). Assume it will be several degrees cooler near the water. It really can be anything from pleasant to miserable that time of year!

As mentioned by another poster, some things will be closed. I would suggest the White Water Adventure, if it is still open. It's on the Canadian side, and you can stand at the bottom of the lower Niagara River gorge next to the rapids...considered to be the strongest in the world. They're awesome.

Another piece of advice I always give is to stay on the Canadian side, but be sure to view the Falls from the American side. It's a totally different perspective. Also, if you're looking for something else to do, I would suggest Old Fort Niagara ( It is a fantastic piece of American History just a few miles away from Niagara Falls. A lot of people will recommend Niagara on the Lake, which is a historic, lovely town on the Canadian side just across the river from Ft. Niagara. I like it well enough, but find it to be way too expensive and touristy. But again, most people love it. Was that too much information?

Have a great trip!

I also love Old Fort Niagara especially with kids. Bring a picnic lunch if you can. Tour the fort and enjoy the scenery.
