We recently spent 24 hours exploring Niagara Falls and all the fun activities in the area. Here are our top 10 recommendations on how to best see and experience the epic falls!
1. Zipline to the Falls
Hands down our most favorite and adrenaline pumping activity we did while at Niagara Falls! Not only are the views incredible, but most people don't even know this exists! You can even add an extra ride once you're done for only $20!
3. Helicopter Tour
These tours look beyond epic - and although we didn't have time to do this ourselves (plus it wasn't really in our $100 a day budget - we will more than bet these are some of the best views you'll be able to get of the falls!
4. Airplane Tour
Again, pretty similar to the helicopter tours but in a bit larger of a vessel.
5. Half Day Wine & Cheese Tour
If you're anything like us you probably had no idea that Niagara had it's own wine region! This is an excellent opportunity to do something a bit different than the falls, and still experience the local culture!
7. Cave of the Winds
Unfortunately this was closed when we visited, but it's definitely at the top of our list for when we make it back! Not only do you get super close to the falls, but you're guaranteed to get soaked! (Even with the rainproof ponchos!)
8. Night Helicopter & Winter Lights
We never knew this experience existed either! Unfortunately this tour is only available in the winter months, but we can only imagine how magical the views would be!
9. Skywheel Admission
Although we personally chose not to do this tour while at Niagara Falls, it looked a bit far away to us, we've heard great reviews! Plus, being on the cheaper side makes it easier to book if you have a larger group!
10. Full Day Tour - A Little Bit of Everything!
This tour includes a little bit of everything - a ride up Skylon Tour, a cruise, an included lunch - plus you even get to explore Niagara Falls from both the Canada and USA side!
