A close up encounter with the Falls
At the Table Rock Welcome Centre on the Niagara Parkway, you can get one of the best views of the Horseshoe Falls. Even better, at the Journey Behind the Falls attraction at the centre, you can travel through tunnels behind the falls. There are observation decks where you can see the falls at very close quarters and feel the spray of its flowing waters.
The Queen Victoria Park offers different vantage points to view the falls. It is situated opposite the Horseshoe and American Falls. This beautiful park is a great place to take a stroll or sit down and enjoy the view not just of the falls but also the greenery and the blossoms. During spring, more than 500,000 daffodils brighten up the park along with tulips in various colours. Admire the magnolia trees, carpet bedding, lush lawns, rock gardens and more, all while sitting on a park bench.
It’s an area where people of all ages can find something interesting to do as it has shops, museums, video arcades, restaurants and fun attractions. You can play miniature golf at Dinosaur Adventure Golf with your children or check out Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks.
