A true world wonder
The natural wonder of the 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.
This wonder takes center stage in a range of activities — take an elevator 150-feet down through bedrock to tunnels behind the Falls, explore the roar of the water on the Hornblower boat tour or take in the view from up high on the Skylon Tower, on Canada’s largest observation wheel, or aboard a sightseeing helicopter.
From summer fireworks to winter light displays and the iconic New Year’s Eve celebration, the Falls is a breathtaking backdrop year round.
Niagara Falls is also the place for family fun, confirmed by Trip Advisor which named it 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 around at indoor waterparks. Adults don’t just come to the Falls for honeymoons anymore. In fact, more and more visitors are heading here for gaming at two casinos, falls view dining and a vibrant nightlife.
