Top things to do in Niagara Falls !
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 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.
A boat ride in to the mist of Niagara Falls is usually at the top of everybody’s “to do” list. You can board the tour boat from Queen Victoria Park near the base of Clifton Hill.
We have to mention Journey Behind the Falls located at the Table Rock area in Queen Victoria Park. This attraction gives you a beautiful perspective of the 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 Maid of the Mist boat ride. The views are just phenomenal and the rush of riding through the rapids will leave you speechless.
If you don’t want to get wet but want to see the Lower Niagara River Rapids up close you have three 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 Museum.
You’ve seen and done everything so far? Nope! 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. You get an equal view of both the American and Canadian Falls. The Keg restaurant at the Embassy Suites is much closer to the Horseshoe Falls and is almost as impressive. Their atmosphere is a bit more lively (and louder) but the food and service is as equally good. Final word: It’s not cheap! Plan on $125.00 plus per person.
Stay in a Fallsview Hotel! Think about a living room with a view of the falls. What a concept! Imagine being able to kick back and relax with a view of the Falls. There are quite a few fallsview hotels each with it’s own qualities. The hotel which we think has the best view possible is the Junior Presidential Suites at the Embassy Suites hotel. It’s a three way tie on second best. In no particular order the Marriott Fallsview(upscale), Hilton (best view of both Falls) and Sheraton on the Falls (great location for getting around).
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 top things to do in Niagara Falls!
