Five Things to Do in Niagara Falls

Thousands of tourists from all over the world come to Niagara Falls every year to admire its beauty and crystal waters. The place is captivating and moves people to visit over and over. Municipal Niagara Falls is divided in two by the international border between the United States and Canada. The Canadian side is in the Province of Ontario, and the American side is in the State of New York. Besides the gorgeous waterfall, shimmering blue river, and amazing natural landscape – there are plenty of activities that tourists and guests of Niagara Falls can partake in to enjoy their holiday.

What to Do in Niagara Falls

First of all, we suggest that you visit Niagara Falls Observation Tower. The view from the top is impeccable: you can appreciate the picturesque waterfalls and boats on the river, watch people strolling along the beautiful Canadian side and observe traffic on Rainbow Bridge carrying vehicles and pedestrians across the border between two countries.

You can also revel in a boat ride on Maid of the Mist – where you will not only get amazing views, but also feel the “vibe” and power, hear the thundering roar, and soak in the spray of the mighty Niagara Falls! There are evening and daytime boat tours for you to take in the beauty of the Falls from water level and to feel like you’re part of the nature.

After the scenic overlook and great boat ride, you can take a special tour called “Cave of the Winds” that happens at the foot of Bridal Veil Falls (Blue Mountains). It is a 40-minute guided educational walking tour for families and those who are not experienced cave explorers. A longer 90-minute tour gives more detailed information, including mysterious ghost stories and folklore legends as well as the history of the cave and waterfall.

There is also the delightfully quaint Niagara Scenic Trolley, which consist of an excursion on a
fun-to-ride bus that takes you around to the most interesting and exciting sites of the park.

Last on our must-visit list is Goat Island, one of the few accessible points on the Niagara River.

As a bonus: if you stay till nightfall, you will see the Falls beautifully illuminated by lights whose colors constantly change. This wonderful spectacle shines brightly over the entire surrounding area. For a fee, you will be given the chance to change the colors of the waterfall the way you like. Isn’t that amazing?
