Niagara Falls is one of the most exciting places to visit in Ontario and New York this summer.
More than 12 million tourists travel to Niagara Falls every year. Many people enjoy gazing at the majestic waterfall, but there are many other things that you can do as well.
Go Behind the Falls
Many people want to stand in front of the falls. You can get a great view from there, but you can get an even more pleasant experience if you stand behind them. The best time to take a journey behind the Falls is in the summer during the day. Nearly 3,000 cubic meters of water crash down the waterfall every second then.
This gives you the opportunity to view Niagara Falls from a different point of view. You may want to consider going behind them on your next trip.
Maid of the Mist
Maid of the Mist opened nearly 170 years ago, making it the oldest tourist destination in either the United States or Canada. Millions of people have visited this attraction since it was first opened.
You can ride a diesel powered boat from the New York border. The boat will take you to a basin of water in Canada. You can also ride in one of the powerful steamboats provided by the Maid of the Mist Company. This can be an eye-opening experience for tourists who want to gaze at Niagara Falls while moving across the basin of water.
Admission to the Maid of the Mist tours is affordable and well worth the cost. Adults and children over 13 can get in for less than $20.
White Water Walk
White Water Walk is another great trip that you may want to try. Adults can gain admission to the park for $10.95. You can walk along some of the most awesome white water destinations in the world. You can watch as trillions of gallons of water are pumped through the rapids at nearly 30 miles an hour.
You can watch some of the largest waves you will ever see in your life. Many waves reach a height of nearly 20 feet.
There are several ways to enjoy the experience. You can either walk along the stretch of the park or ride in the Whirlpool Aero car. Either way you are guaranteed an exciting time.
Niagara’s Fury is an exciting educational venue for people who want to learn more about Niagara Falls. The people who developed it have created a powerful multimedia experience to teach people about the creation of Niagara Falls. The presentation is made in a 4D-style presentation.
This can be a great place to take your children to help them learn more about the history of Niagara Falls. Adults can gain admission for $13.50 and children can get in for $8.80.
