If you’re heading to Niagara Falls soon and need some ideas of where to go, you’ve come to the right place! Today’s blog post should give you the top 8 attractions in the Falls area that will make sure you have an unforgettable experience.
1. Take a selfie at the Horseshoe Falls
Who could visit Niagara and not take that iconic photograph of themselves outside the Horseshoe Falls? Don’t forget, the Niagara Falls is made up of the Bridal Veil and American Falls, so be sure to head there afterwards!
2. Stay in a room with a view
There’s only one way to experience a stay here properly, and that’s to check in at the best Niagara Falls hotel in the area, which will see you wake up every morning to a spectacular view of the Falls from your bedroom.
3. Take the Hornblower Cruise
The view of the Falls may well not be enough, so why not hop onto the next Hornblower Cruise? This catamaran passes through the American and Bridal Veil waterfalls, before sailing right up to the base of the Horseshoe Falls, where the spray of the water will soak right through to your skin!
4. Journey behind the Falls
You don’t just have to enjoy the Falls from the front; why not take the next tour down into the depths of the rock-face, and travel through twisting and turning pathways out onto a platform right behind this enormous sheet of water.
5. Play golf in Clifton Hill
Clifton Hill has a whole host of amusement arcades and attractions to keep you occupied, including the Niagara Sky Wheel, but it’s also home to two fantastic mini-golf courses. You can either battle prehistoric carnivores or take on powerful, glow-in-the-dark wizards – the choice is yours.
6. Become an entomologist
Just a short drive from central Niagara is the much-loved Botanical Gardens. With beautifully manicured lawns and floral architecture, that’s not the only thing that draws in millions of people every year. Set in their grounds is the Butterfly Conservatory, where you can practice entomology (the study of insects) by spotting over 2,000 of its tropical residents.
7. Tour the wine country
Did you know that southern Ontario is the largest exporter of Icewine in the whole of Canada? This smooth and fruity tipple is famous in the Niagara area, which is home to a handful of award-winning wineries and breweries. There are many tours that venture into the wine country every day, where the experts can explain all about the different types of wine, the production process, and of course, offer you the chance to taste some!
8. Visit the Daredevil Museum
If you’ve been enthralled by the Falls, no stay here would be complete without a trip to the Daredevil exhibit at the IMAX Theatre. You’ll be able to see some of the props that were used in attempts to survive a tumble over the Falls, read eye-witness accounts and listen to survivor stories.
