The selfie is here to stay in modern photography, and nothing says ‘Look where I am!’ like a shot with your likeness and an eye-catching background. Here are six amazing locations for where a great Niagara Falls selfie might be set up with ease.
1. The Niagara Falls Selfie
The first site is always going to be Niagara Falls – it’s one of the best selfie setups anyone could ask for. But what’s the best place? The cliffside near the Table Rock Welcome Centre is good, but still a little distant. Better than that is taking the ferry right up to the base of the waterfalls onboard a…
2. Hornblower Cruise

Although you’re given opportunities to handle some of the exotic birds in the aviary, it’s not recommended to multi-task a parrot and a phone if you’re not confident with birds – but it’s easy to find a position in front of a macaw or a toucan to get a great shot in a beautiful environment. For comfort and angle, it’s hard to beat taking a selfie from a….
6. Marriott Fallsview Room
Taken at any time of day, capturing a high angle photo of yourself with the Falls in the background, with maybe a cup of coffee in hand, is a great selfie.
