Niagara Falls day to night timelapse video! (watch in full screen mode)
Be sure to check out our Niagara Falls Webcam! It streams live 24/7 all year long. With the recent upgrade to the Falls lighting it really looks spectacular in the evenings. While it is not as exciting as our Falls webcam we also have the Niagara River webcam located at the mouth of the Lower Niagara River as it flows in to Lake Ontario.
If you are planning a visit to Niagara Falls in the near future please keep in mind that the boat rides below the Falls are now closed for the season. Other seasonal attractions such as the White Water Walk, Whirlpool Aero Car, NY State Observation Tower & the Cave of the Winds are closed as well. We’re getting ready for the annual Festival of Lights which turns our area in to a winter wonderland. The Festival runs from November 19th 2016 to January 31st 2017.

Niagara Gorge Hiking
Many visitors to Niagara Falls are unaware that we possess some of the most beautiful hiking trails in North America. The area known as the Niagara Gorge begins at the Falls and extends almost 5.5 miles (9 km) to the north. The gorge is accessible at various points along the Niagara Parkway. You can hike down to the rivers edge for some breathtaking views of the local flora and fauna. Visit our hiking page for details!

Niagara Tower Hotel
If you are visiting Niagara Falls and want to stay at a truly unique hotel check out the Niagara Tower Hotel. Originally built in the 1960’s as a restaurant and observation tower. In 2002 it was converted to a boutique hotel with floor to ceiling windows and a view that is second to none. Spend a night or two at this amazing Niagara Falls Hotel. Find more information here: Niagara Tower Hotel.
If we could recommend any one attraction that is a “must try” during the tourist season it would have to be the Whirlpool Jetboat Tours. It’s truly a one of kind adventure for everyone. If you don’t mind getting soaking wet, it’s better than any e-ticket ride at Disney. And if you don’t want to get wet, they now offer the “Jet Dome” for those looking for a more relaxed site seeing tour on the Niagara River. Visit their page for a great discount coupon and more information.
Oh baby it’s cold outside! If you are visiting Niagara Falls this winter and are looking for an option that isn’t freezing cold try and check out the IMAX Niagara Falls. This IMAX film takes an in depth look at the history surrounding our natural wonder and is something all ages can enjoy. Visit IMAX NIAGARA FALLS for more information!
