Niagara Falls Ontario – Why it is Such a Great Travel Destination
Leah Walker February 18, 2019

There are some destinations that everyone wants to visit. The Niagara Falls is certainly in that category. Practically anyone will tell you that seeing these waterfalls is on their bucket list. If you are thinking about going there, this post is for you. Below, I have put together a few suggestions to help you to get the most out of your stay there.

Enjoy a luxury hotel room

Even if you are on a relatively tight budget it is really worth booking yourself a hotel room with a view of the waterfalls. It is a fantastic experience that you will never forget. So, even if you can only afford to stay for one night it really is worth doing. You can find out more from this site.

A way to experience the waterfalls

If you want to get up close to the waterfalls, take the Hornblower boat tour. It is an interesting and thrilling trip. You can get some fantastic photos of the base of the waterfalls. During the trip, you will be taken to within feet of the plunging water.

Enjoy a meal in the Skylon Tower

The views from the Skylon Tower are fantastic too with the added advantage that you can enjoy a nice meal there too. You can either eat in the revolving dining room or enjoy a summit suite buffet.


Take a winery tour

Not far from Niagara Falls, Ontario is Niagara-on-the-Lake. It is a beautiful place that is home to several wonderful distilleries, wineries and vineyards. If you have the time, spending a little time visiting them is well worth doing. The Jackson Triggs Estate winery and Inniskillin Wines are particularly popular places to visit.

Watch the fireworks

If you can, try to plan your visit to coincide with one of the fireworks displays. There is something extra special about watching an event of this type that takes place over water.

Visit Dufferin Island

When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, visit Dufferin Island. This secluded paradise covers just 10 acres, so it is easy to get around it in just a day. It is a particularly good place to visit if you like wild birds. They flock to the feeding stations. So, you can get some wonderful photos of lots of different species.

Enjoy hiking in Niagara Glen

There is a wonderful hiking trail that winds its way through the Carolinian Forest. During the hike, you will get to enjoy some great views of the Niagara River. If you want, you can follow one of the steeper routes instead. These take you over rougher terrain, so you will need to have packed a pair of proper hiking boots to be able to tackle those.

More information

The above is just a taste of what the area has to offer. Before you book, I suggest that you visit the official tourism website for the area. It is the best source of unbiased information for travelers to the area.
