Niagara Falls

Ontario, Canada

43.0896° N, 79.0849° W


The Niagara Falls is the name for three waterfalls the border USA and Canada.  The three falls are the American Falls, The Bridal Veil Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. 

1. Hornblower Cruise

Grab your red poncho and take the Hornblower Cruise to see the falls up close and personal. The cruise takes your along the Niagara River going past the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and into the heart of the impressive Canadian Horseshoe Falls.  This is a fun and very wet experience like no other. 


2. Helicopter

Take to the sky on a helicopter tour and see the waterfalls from a different perspective. You really get to see just how big and impressive the beauty of the falls is.

3. Dine with a view of the Falls

Try and bag yourself a window seat so you can eat your meal looking out at the falls. As the day fades int night, the falls light up such beautiful colours of the rainbow. It again gives a different perspective and feel to seeing the falls.

4. Fireworks Show

Every night at 10pm during July and August there is a Firework show over the Falls. It lasts about 8 minutes and watching the vibrant colours explode in the dark sky above the lit up Falls is definitely a bucket list moment.

5. Visit Clifton Hills

Clifton Hills dubbed the world famous street of fun. Niagara falls is quiet a peaceful place so Clifton Hills is the perfect place to head for a splash of vibrant colour and noise. Ride the ferris wheel or head to a bar, I would describe it as a mini Las Vegas in Canada.

Bonus Point. Winery Niagara on the Lake

Niagara on the Lake has many wineries to visit. Find out how wine is made and sample some exclusive wine. I visited Jackson Triggs Winery and it is a very impressive set up. I am a wine drinker but by no means a expert but I love the knowledge of the staff who took their time to explain about the wine we were sampling and what to pair it with.
