If you are planning a visit to Niagara Falls and are looking for ways to get the most out of your visit, the good news is that with its wide range of sights and activities, the Falls is one of the very few places in the world that lives up to its surrounded hype. The waterfalls are the obvious main attraction, but the surrounding landscapes and nearby leisure facilities complement a trip to this natural wonder ensuring there’s always something to do and experience during your visit.
Planning your itinerary is crucial to make the most of your time. Having said this, always remember to leave room for discovering new things and places in their natural habitat by limiting how much you find out about them beforehand. The main points of interest can serve as a reliable guide as you explore this amazing province of eastern Canada. Here is a list you can use to get started when planning your itinerary:
Apart from viewing the majestic Niagara Falls from the many vistas available, there are also more exciting ways to experience this mighty spectacle. Some of the best ways to view the falls include boat tours that take visitors close enough to the three main waterfalls to get them soaked! Other tours will allow you to go behind the falls for a different view or travel by helicopter to see their sheer power and expansiveness from above.
Another recommended sight is viewing the waterfalls at night. Lights illuminate the falls after dark, flooding them with many different colours and creating a spectacle that is in my eyes an absolute must-see.
The Great Outdoors
Niagara Falls is set in the scenic Niagara Falls State park, home to a vast array of natural wonders and discoveries. In addition to offering an untamed natural setting for trekking and long walks, the park also provides many adventure and leisure amenities for visitors. You can choose to go white water rafting, hiking, or visit one of the many historic attractions that the area is known for. Boat tours and camping facilities are also available to help you get away from it all and immerse yourself in a habitat that moose, bears and otters call home.
If you are not into camping, you can still experience this amazing landscape and its wildlife while choosing to stay at a fallsview hotel or one of the many motels that service the area.
Niagara Falls is probably not famous for its night life, but the entertainment is of a high standard thanks in part to the area being one of the most visited places in Canada by both tourists and locals alike. This has led to the growth of a thriving nightlife scene of which offers a great mix of restaurant and dining options as well as lots of clubs and bars that cater to all types of music tastes and social setting preferences.
As one of the most well known wonders of the world, the Niagara Falls are worth the visit in their own right, but the surrounding wilderness and leisure amenities allow visitors to live every moment and make the very most of their visit to the area.
