NIAGARA – FALLS AND MUCH MORE
Like many others even I thought a day in Niagara would be enough, after all its just the Falls. I am glad I made it to 2 days but would highly recommend at least 3 days at Niagara. Many would have already researched about things to do and see before coming to Niagara but still, there is so much which you can explore only by yourself. Well, I am being biased, the Canadian side of Falls or also known as Horse Shoe Falls is extremely beautiful and magnificent.. I just didn’t get enough of it. The gushy fierce yet so calm, you can just keep admiring the falls.
Niagara Falls can be seen from various angles and spots. I decided to see it through all possible angles and trust me I couldn’t get enough of it. But when I say you can see falls from various angles, I mean it. I took a tour in cruise which took us very close to the falls, Helicopter ride –the Ariel view of the falls is indescribable, from the clock tower, from the Giant wheel and of course while Zip lining. These are the possible ways to witness this nature’s extreme beauty.
There are a lot more at Niagara apart from the falls. It actually has so much to offer for every member of a family. The Clifton Hill area is something you would not like to miss.
Niagara Hornblower Cruise
The most spectacular and popular is the Hornblower Cruise which takes you right up to the falls. This is from the Canadian side but make sure you book your tickets in advance because almost everyone coming to Niagara takes this cruise and its always overcrowded. There is also a “Skip the line Hornblower Ticket” which takes you right down to the funicular to get on your cruise. There are self-serve kiosks onsite for buying tickets, but as I said better to book it in advance.
There are two levels in cruise. The lower level has seats for viewing the falls, just in case you do not want to get on the upper deck. But I did not see anyone seated at the lower deck. From the upper deck, the view of the falls is just spectacular. In spite of the poncho, the heavenly mist was touching you making you feel out of the world.
Wild Play Mist Rider Zip lining
I have done Zip-lining before but was a little scared to this one. The huge open area over the falls and the view of falls made me little nervous. But by the time I prepared myself for the adventure, the 670 mt long Zip Line was over and I was on the other side of the Zip Lining. What a view !! I must say.
I was a little skeptical whether to go on the sky wheel or not. To me, it looked like any other sky wheel meant for kids for a small ride. You have to go on the loop to see the falls from a unique perspective. You cannot miss the Sky wheel if you are strolling around Clifton Hill Area. It’s so huge that you can see it from anywhere or everywhere.
The Sky Wheel is another way to get fabulous views for sure!
Yet another amazing way to get views of the falls. !
Even if you are scared of heights, you must go on till the top to get the 360-degree view of the falls and the surrounding area. This approximately 520 feet tower, opened in 1965 is located right there. You can also have your meals at a Revolving Restaurant with a view here.
