Niagara Falls Canada Tourism Guide
Welcome to Niagara Falls, ON!Once a haven for United Empire Loyalists who were fleeing the American Revolution, Niagara Falls now welcomes thousands to what has become a very leisure-oriented town. The highlight is indubitably the torrential Horseshoe Falls—one of the top tourist attractions in the world. Take the Maid of the Mist boat tour to see the cascading waterfall up close, or get a good aerial perspective of the Falls from the Skylon Tower. Venture uphill from the falls to the Clifton Hill tourist area, crammed with quirky museums and amusement houses, as well as eateries and souvenir shops. The lavish Casino Niagara hosts hundreds of games, as well as Vegas-style entertainment and a high-end indoor shopping avenue. Break from the indoors with a trip to the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, which contains a stunning collection of Canadian vegetation. The Butterfly Conservatory located on the grounds will leave hearts fluttering as fast as the mariposas— wings. Just outside of Niagara Falls is Marineland, a grand-scale aquarium and amusement park.
This UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve site is one of Canada's most noteworthy landforms.
