MORE THAN AN EYEFUL.
The natural wonder, the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, is one of the world’s most famous waterfalls. With heights of 176 feet and a colossal 150,000 gallons of water crashing down per second, you are bound to be wonderstruck by the roar of the Falls, the mystery of the rising mist and if you’re lucky, the sight of rainbows overhead.
Think you’ve seen the Falls? Think again. This wonder takes centre stage in a range of activities you must experience to believe. Did you know that there are 3 waterfalls? The American Falls, Bridal Veil and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Take an elevator 150-feet down through bedrock to tunnels behind the Falls, or explore the roar of the water on the new Hornblower Niagara Cruises. Take in the view high-above at the Skylon Tower, in a gondola on Canada’s largest Niagara Skywheel, or via helicopter. From summer fireworks to winter light displays and the iconic New Year’s Eve celebration, the Falls is a breathtaking backdrop year round.
The number one reason to visit Niagara Falls may be the Horseshoe Falls, but there is plenty more to see and do. According to TripAdvisor, Niagara Falls is Canada’s number one family holiday destination. Families make a beeline to the attractions of nearby Clifton Hill, the Niagara Parks and Marineland, explore along the Niagara River and splash down in indoor waterparks.
Couples don’t just come to the Falls for honeymoons anymore. The romantic backdrop is also home to two casinos, falls view dining and vibrant nightlife.
