You thought that Niagara Falls is located in the USA?
You are right! There is also a Niagara Falls - just on the other side of the Niagara River. But we show you Niagara Falls in Canada.
If you are not from the USA and you have the required papers with you please cross the border. The American Niagara Falls has also many interesting things to offer.
The Canadian Niagara Falls with its numerous attractions will meet especially the expectations of our neighbors - it is very popular at our American friends. Not only by honeymooners, also by visitors who want to challenge their luck in one of the two casino and save US taxes if they win.
Despite all the commercialization the falls are still a breathtaking natural wonder.
Visit the new casino and enjoy the beautiful sights to the falls
You can have your own live experience in a helicopter flight over the falls. It is a real unforgettable adventure.
Don't miss also to participate in a "Journey behind the Falls", a tour with the "Maid of the Mist" and to visit the "Great George".

Another attraction which you should not miss
Almost all of our visitor enjoyed an exciting ride in the "Whirlpool Aero Car" over the famous whirl pool created by the Niagara River. They took amazing pictures.
This cable car was designed by a Spanish engineer and is in operation since 1916. For that reason it is also known as the "Spanish Aero Car".
It only crosses the whirl pool. That means it stays in Canada and you cannot exit or board on the other side.
It operates only when the weather is reasonable and during winter no rides are offered.
Visit our web site about the little adventure with the aerocar and a visit to the "Niagara Glen Nature Reserve" which can be accessed from the same parking lot. The web site includes a brief video. You will also see visitors having fun in jet boats on the river. You can book this adventure also here.
After doing all that in an afternoon you deserve a good dinner.
During the winter Niagara Falls is normally very quiet. Only a few individuals enjoy the great scenery of ice covered trees and bushes and the mighty ice built up at the falls. Some of our friends loved that as much as the summer and the "Festival of Lights" is an additional attraction during this season.
Not only the falls are illuminated also colorful Christmas scenes with animals are displayed. A nice sightseeing tour for the whole family!
One of the many scenes,which you can see at the "Festival of Lights"
I recommend to stay at least for two days in Niagara Falls. Additional time should be planned for exploring the surroundings of the town.
Just check our web site and also others to get more information that you do not miss something of great interest for you.
Many of the popular attractions can be found around "Clifton Hill"
Little kids where excited to see the crocodile at the entrance to the "Rainforest Cafe".
An attraction not only for the little ones
A surprise is waiting inside for you
Very close is also the famous casino. Even when you are not interested in gambling have a look at it. There is no entrance fee and there is also no strict dress code. Shorts, sandals and a T-Shirt should be OK.
If you are getting tired from all the walking and you do not want to eat or drink something, we suggest that you visit the "Imax® Theatre". None of our visitors was disappointed. The "Imax® Theatre" is not a conventional theater but a cinema with an enormous screen and great sound. As far as I know all performances are suitable for families with children. They were all documentary and educational movies. But please check first before you go and look for coupons which give you a discount.
All kind of accommodation is offered in Niagara Falls. Always check for special offers and compare.
When we traveled we always made good experience with b & b because we are normally very interested in learning something which we can add to our Internet travel guide. Sometimes this educational sessions lasted up to three hours. You can also rent apartments and save money by doing some home cooking by yourself.
Normally the offered breakfast was better than in hotels. The so called "Continental Breakfast" which refers to the European continent must have been invented by somebody who is at war with Europe. I think it is cheap, terrible and almost a health hazard - at least for people with diabetes like me.
In Niagara Falls you must not go hungry. If you are looking for speciality restaurants just check the advertising or the yellow pages.

Even in winter breathtaking
The frozen Niagara River
Very often you learn much more about a museum or a certain area when you join a guided tour. Normally it is also relaxing and you do not have to worry about finding a parking spot.
Many of these tours are offered in Niagara Falls. just check the offers. But you can also leave your car at your accommodation and use the "People Mover System".
Some of the other highlights in and around Niagara Falls are:
the "Niagara Spanish Aero Car" - a cable car across the river
the "Botanical Garden"
the "Niagara Park Greenhouse Conservatory"
the "Butterfly Conservatory"
the "Floral Clock"
the "Centennial Lilac Garden"
the "Konica Minolta Tower Centre"
Check in addition the numerous advertised museums (e. g. wax museum) and other places which always are a typical target of many tourists.
