Things to do

There is a LOT to do in Niagara Falls, and that it's true if you go with kids and it's true if you go as a romantic getaway ;)

The season is very important, a friend told me that in winter you could see the ice falling and that it's amazing, we saw pictures of summer and I can't wait to get back, and you have this week, when you don't see any of those things and the maid of the mist is not working, but still is enjoyable ^^ Another thing, when you were far from the falls, it was hot and nice, when you got close it was REALLY COLD xD

These are some of the things we did :)

Journey Behind the Falls: It's $12 for adults and $7.2 for kids. You get in a elevator that takes you to a tunnel where you can walk behind the falls! There are a few places where you can get close like this one:

And where the sound is LOOOOUUUUDDDD, and there are places where you can get a little bit to the side and really close ;)

Butterfly Conservatory: $11 for adults and $6.50 for kids. This is a place to go most of all with kids that enjoy insects and/or butterflies, they are free all over the place and it's a nice place, but I don't recommend it that much ^^

Whirlpool Aero Car: $11 for adults and $6.5 for kids. In this one you get in that red aero car you can see at the end of the whirlpool and get a round trip from point to point across the whirlpool :) It's a nice ride, I like it more than the butterfly conservatory but don't find it as amazing as journey behind the falls ;)

White Water Walk: $8.50 for adults and $5 for kids. In this one you get into an elevator that takes you down and close to the river :) then you can walk in this little bridge while walking really close to the water. I loved this one, I'm taking my family for sure, since you are so close, it feels great!!

Clifton Hill: This one is "free". It's an area with LOTS and LOTS of attractions, haunted houses, ripley's believe it or not, guiness records, etc, etc, etc, it has everything! We even played some mini golf ^^ Beware that this one is free to look from outside but it's hard to your pocket when you want to go in ;)

The Skywheel: $9.99 for adults and $5.99 for kids. This one is really fun and it's located in the heart of Clifton Hill, but I must warn you, even though it goes really slow, is not for people who is afraid of close spaces and/or highs, I had a really hard time in there, but worth it!

Hope this can help you decide what to do on your next trip :D Always look for some coupons or packages to these rides, but if you are going to take a package I recommend the ones where you can do it in the order you want for as much time as you want :)

Next post, how to get there!!! ^^

Wow, when we went to Niagara Falls we only went to the falls - it was quick trip. Looks like there's a lot of other great things to do. Who won the miniature golf?

Aiglee said...

Yeah, there is a lot xD Hey, you are close enough to go back and do all that and more :p

I won!! But it was pure luck xD He made a hole in one and I made 2, but even like that the final score was him: +16, me +14 hahaha, we really suck... And do you know what is funnier? He was winning but the wind was against him and in one of the par 2, it took him more than 13 to finish LOL

I did go behind the falls but didn't have the chance to take the Maid of Mist boat. Wrong season...

I saw pictures of Niagara Falls in the winter with ice and snow and it looked great. I went early April... it was nice too.
