In Niagara Falls Canada Queen Victoria Park is the main area for viewing Niagara Falls. The park extends from the Niagara Parks Power Station to the Rainbow Bridge. In between you can access Journey Behind the Falls at the Table Rock Visitor Center. Walk a few minutes north and try Zipline Niagara or board the Boat Ride below the Falls.

Best things to do in Niagara Falls Canada!
We receive many inquiries regarding what “not to miss” while visiting our area so we’ve compiled this list for you.
In Niagara Falls Canada a walk along the Niagara gorge from the Rainbow Bridge to Table Rock is something everyone will want to do. Along the way you can view both the American & Canadian Falls while enjoying the beautifully landscaped Queen Victoria Park and Oakes Gardens. Best of all entry to the park is 100% free.
A boat ride into the mist of Niagara Falls is usually at the top of everybody’s “to do” list. You can board from Queen Victoria Park near the base of Clifton Hill. The boat rides typically start the season in late April or early May.
Journey Behind the Falls at the Table Rock Visitor Center in Queen Victoria Park. This attraction gives you a beautiful perspective of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
Even though it’s a fifteen to twenty minute drive from the Falls, a ride on the Whirlpool Jetboat is an amazing experience which rivals the Niagara Falls boat rides. The views are just phenomenal and the rush of riding through the rapids will leave you grinning from ear to ear! For the not so adventurous the Whirlpool Jet offers rides on their enclosed jetboat to keep you and your gear dry.
If you don’t want to get wet but want to see the Lower Niagara River Rapids up close you have two options. For the quick in and out you can take an elevator to the bottom of the Niagara Gorge in Niagara Falls Canada at the White Water Walk. Otherwise if you are somewhat athletic you can hike down into the gorge from the Niagara Glen trail near the Butterfly Conservatory.
Think you have seen and done everything so far? Nothing is more satisfying than fine dining with a view of the Falls. All the major Fallsview hotels have restaurants with a view but two in particular are at the top of the list. The Watermark restaurant at the Hilton Fallsview is spectacular with an equal view of both the American and Canadian Falls. The Keg restaurant at the Embassy Suites is much closer to the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and is very impressive as well. The Keg’s atmosphere tends to be a bit more lively (and louder) but the food and service is equally good. Final word, It’s not cheap! Plan on spending $125.00 plus per person.
Stay in a Fallsview Hotel. Think about a living room with a view of Niagara Falls. What a concept! There are eleven Fallsview hotels each with their own unique qualities. The hotel which we think has the best view is the Embassy Suites Fallsview hotel. Their Junior Presidential Suites offer a jaw dropping view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. It’s a three way tie on second best. In no particular order the Marriott Fallsview is more upscale. The Hilton offers the best view of both Falls. The Sheraton on the Falls is in a great location for getting around to see all the sights and the best location for viewing the fireworks over the Falls at night.
Now that your wallet is almost empty a ride on the Whirlpool Aero Car is an interesting way to spend a half hour without breaking the bank. A suspended cable car crosses the gorge directly over the giant whirlpool on the Niagara River. Access is only from Canada and is about a five minute drive from the Falls.
If you have any money left and want to try something unique go for a helicopter tour over the Falls. There are two really great things about doing this. First is if you have never taken a helicopter ride they are really cool! Secondly if you are going to take a helicopter ride what better place than Niagara Falls.
And that’s our take on the best things to do in Niagara Falls Canada!
