There are no other places on Earth that will give you exactly the same thrills than Niagara Falls. What’s more, you can find both exciting attractions to visit and pleasant and restful sightseeing. So, we can fairly say that visiting Niagara Falls is a complete vacation experience.

Particular attention is given to the nightlife side of visiting Niagara Falls. In fact, concert and night clubs are the most attractive places to be when visiting this edge of Canada.
Niagara Falls is considered one of the top five cities in the world for attractions. It offers a full range of vacation ideas for the nearly 13 million annual visitors. Whether you enjoy an exciting tour, fine dining, a state-of-the-art movie experience, or a Niagara Falls outlet mall, Niagara Falls offers all that and much more.
One of the most popular tours is the “Cave of the Winds” tour. The tour is on the U.S. side of the falls. For $11 per person, or as part of a Niagara Falls pass, an elevator takes you down 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge where you can feel the enormous power of the wind and water and get a chance to get up close and wet. The line moves quickly and once you are out of the elevator you have as much time as you need. They do provide a rain poncho and non-slip water sandals.
This is one of the most amazing attractions Niagara has to offer. To not only be a few feet from to the torrents of the falls, to get wet from the falls, but to feel the power of the water is incredible. Walkways and stairs are very slippery, so yes – you do have to wear the sandals. Don’t miss the Hurricane Deck – you will get wet – soaking, to the bone wet – but again, to feel the power of that water is incredible. The views of the non-soaking decks are fabulous.
In the spring, special “Cave of the Winds” tours are offered so visitors can experience a seasonal version of the attraction and see the decks being built for the upcoming season. Watch as skilled workers rebuild the boardwalks that lead to the Hurricane Deck – the decks and walkways are removed every November and reassembled each spring to protect them from the extreme winter conditions that exist in the Niagara Gorge.
Cave of the Winds Niagara Falls tour tickets can be purchased separately, and as part of the Niagara Falls Discovery Pass.
Another exciting attraction is the “Maid of the Mist” boat tour. The “Maid of the Mist” boats are a great way to experience the Niagara Falls. They take you directly to the base of the falls. The rides start from the jetties, both on the U.S. side and the Canadian side of the river, every 15 minutes. Waterproof clothing is provided.
Niagara Falls police put the stop on a kayak stunt that would have seen the daredevils go over the falls. Niagara Parks Police Inspector Paul Forcier said police received a tip about the stunt and contacted the individuals involved.
Any attempts to perform a stunt (wthout permission from the Niagara Parks Comission like Nik Wallenda) carries a fine of up to $9,600. Of course, things could be a lot worse if you’re attempting to go over Niagara Falls in a Kayak!
Duchess Kate gave birth to a baby boy on July 22 and the popular Canadian attraction decided to honor the occasion by illuminating the waterfalls blue for the newborn. According to Janice Thomson, NPC Chair and Niagara Falls Illumination Board member, this was the city’s special way to commemorate the birth of their future king and congratulate the royal couple on the arrival of their first child.
New parents Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first child into the world after the pregnant Kate was admitted to hospital in the early hours of July 22. Kate’s labor had gone well, and experts revealed it was about the average time for a first time mom in labor. Her royal husband was by her side and mom and baby are doing just fine.
The new royal trio left the hospital 25 hours after his birth, posing for photos in a similar fashion to that of William’s parents, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, who gave the world a first glimpse of the two Princes when leaving the hospital. The baby was named George Alexander Louis and will be known as
His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. He is the third-in-line to the throne.
In December 2012 the Royal Family confirmed that Kate would be welcoming the couple’s first child this summer. A few months into her pregnancy, the Duchess was admitted to hospital for severe morning sickness.
In 1991, Diana, Princess of Wales, Prince William, and Prince Harry paid a visit to Niagara Falls Ontario Canada, wearing raincoats for an up-close Niagara Falls attraction tour. According to Thomson, the city would be delighted to host a Niagara Falls vacation for William and Kate as well.
