Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls – a destination that is on everyone’s wish list to see at least once in a lifetime.

Niagara Falls is far more than a natural phenomenon. A world-class destination with something for everyone, the city offers thriving night life, one-of-a-kind sightseeing, and adventure for all ages. The Niagara Falls honeymoon and family activities like the Hornblower cruise tour and Marineland are long-time traditions, while new Niagara attractions abound.

Experiences not to be missed would include the Helicopter ride over the falls,the Walk behind the Falls and the Jet Boat tours and, of course, the Hornblower Cruises, the boat operator for Niagara Falls, offering tours from sunrise to sunset.

Why should I visit Niagara Falls?

Aside from the awesome power of the falls themselves, which can be viewed in a variety of ways, Niagara Falls is a fun destination with many attractions. Taking the Hornblower cruise to the base of the falls is a must, as is going Behind the Falls to experience the power first-hand. The more adventurous can take the Mistrider Zipline to the Falls or the Whirpool Aero Car or for simply the very best view, take a helicopter ride.

The falls lit up at night are stunning to see, as they are when frozen in the winter, so it’s a place to visit, whatever time of year.

No visit to Niagara Falls would be complete without visiting nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake, an antithesis to the bustling Falls area. This quaint town is home to small boutiques, hotels and cafes, and, best of all, there are a number of excellent wineries in the region too.
