Falls Photography and Hiking

Overview

The power of Niagara Falls from both the American and Canadian sides. The gorge hikes give a great perspective not often seen.

Plan out activities for one side and then plan activities for the other side. Border crossing can sometimes take time so try to limit how many times you cross.

Best Way To Get Around:

Your vehicle is the best but try to park in central locations that allow you to walk to several areas without moving the car.

Attraction | "Gorge Trails"

Quote:
There are several trails along the gorge. The various trails take you to different levels of the gorge. One trail stays at the top of the gorge and gives you a great overall view of the area as you are hiking. Another trail starts at the top and slowly descends down into the gorge.

Aquarium of Niagara

Attraction | "Aquarium"

Quote:
The aquarium may not be the best in the world but it is nice to walk through and see the various types of fish present in our world. They occasionally rotate the fish on display and are always adding new species. It is a nice place to spend a rainy afternoon if you happen to have one on your vacation.

Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel

Attraction | "Seneca Niagara Casino"

Quote:
A nice atmosphere to spend an evening or a rainy day. You always seem to feel upbeat when you enter the casino. The facilities have improved with the new hotel that was recently built. The hotel is beautiful and state of the art. When you first see the hotel it is all blue glass in various shades. The interior is all new and very sharp looking. Overall a sharp and attractive look to a business that has a great locale due to the Falls.
