5 Things to Do in Niagara Falls

1. Cave of the Winds 

To experience the thundering water, Cave of the Winds is the best place to touch the water from its observation deck. This deck allows you to see Niagara Falls up close. You can start your journey from the US side of the falls. There is an elevator with 53 meters (175 feet) height which travels down to the Niagara Gorge. You can enjoy the vistas of Niagara river from the Hurricane Deck from the distance of 46 meters (150-foot) height; it is a platform which entices most of the tourists for taking pictures.

As mentioned earlier, for the most breathtaking experience, you must take a ride of Maid of the Mist cruise. which will get you to the Cave of the Winds and Prospect Point Observation Tower. We know that the Cave no longer exists behinds Bridal Veil, but even then you can view the Niagara's wonders from the wooden observation deck. 

2. Aquarium of Niagara 

After you have explored the great outdoors, it’s the perfect time to head inside and enjoy the underwater marvel of the Aquarium of Niagara. This remarkable center is committed to technology, preservation, and tourism, and allows visitors to access mother nature’s most precious and protected creatures. 

You can walk through the vibrant tropical species of fish behind glass walls of well-kept fish tanks, complete with stunning coral formations. This aquarium offers many other interactive options. You will have the chance to pet some loveable seals for 20 minutes. You can play with them and feed them with provided food items. The trainer will guide you about the use of playthings of seals. This is an extremely fun up-close and interactive experience with the seals. 

3. Devil's Hole State Park 

This well-known Niagara Falls vacation spot has panoramic overlooks, well-kept refreshments zones, and easy trails. Its oxygen-rich waters catch the attention of sports anglers, which allow them to pursuit wild salmon and trout each year, and the legendary stone stairs (made for only the most intrepid vacationers) lead directly into the idyllic Gorge, where remarkable vistas of the park’s natural miracles allow photographers excellent vistas. 

Professional guides provide information about the different plants and creatures within this amazing location.

4. Three Sisters Island

Most visitors call Three Sisters Island a "magical and fairytale place." During walking trail, many kinds of the birds entice photographers to take the picture on the way. 

General Parkhurst Whitney was the first man who discovered these three islands with his three daughters. He travelled to the islands with his three daughters via small frozen water blocks. His daughters navigated to the islands when there was no bridge at the time. He requested to the owners to name these three islands after his three daughters (Three Sisters Islands). It was a remarkable breakthrough of General Parkhurst Whitney, who further guided the constructors to construct bridges between these islands, to link them for inhabitants.

5. Whirlpool State Park

Centrally located along the Whirlpool Rapids, this well-known state park allows visitors to get close to the roaring water of the Niagara River. The highly oxygen-rich water that comes from these raging streams results in the best salmon and trout sportfishing around, too. 

Picturesque trails, public refreshment places, and easy access to the huge Niagara Gorge and Devil’s Hole Park make this the best spot for outdoor exploring. A public learning center informs travelers about the falls, and showcases the plants and creatures around this natural wonder. If you are planning your trip to the Niagara Falls, it's a good idea to book an award winning Niagara Falls tour from Toronto for the best travelling experience possible.
