NIAGARA FALLS

Niagara Falls, Ontario, is the self-proclaimed "Honeymoon Capital of the World". For over a century the grandeur of the waterfalls of the Niagara River have attracted tourists to this destination.

Most visitors' first view of the Falls, from the Canadian side of the river, is at Queen Victoria Park along the Niagara Falls Parkway. This grand, royal garden provides the perfect vantage point for experiencing both the nightly illumination of the Falls and the summer fireworks displays. The Falls are illuminated every evening until approximately midnight and there are Fireworks over the Falls, Friday and Sunday nights in the summer months. Hornblower Niagara Cruises is a boat tour to the foot of the falls, where visitors can better appreciate their thunder and spray. There are three types of cruises: Voyage to the Falls, Sunset Cocktail Cruise, and Falls Illumination/Fireworks Cruise.

Journey Behind the Falls, is an interesting attraction to consider in lieu of Hornblower Niagara Cruises(or when Hornblower Niagara Cruises isn't operating). Although popular, the lines aren't nearly as long for "Journey" as they are for Hornblower Niagara Cruises, and therefore may be a better option on crowded days, or for those travelling with small children. Ponchos are provided, as the Journey still offers participants the chance to feel the "spray" of the Falls, from portholes opening behind the Falls themselves, as well as access to a small open area on the bank of the river, no more than 200 feet from the base of the falls.

For those looking to get a bird's-eye view of the Falls and surrounding skyline, the Skylon Tower and Niagara Skywheel are some of the good options. Nature lovers will appreciate the beauty of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens which has North America's largest butterfly conservatory. There's also the Bird Kingdom. With over 400 birds is the largest free-flying indoor aviary in the world.
