In addition to Niagara Falls and the picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, this bountiful region is all about award-winning wines, fabulous cuisine and historic sites.
Located just 90 minutes from Toronto, the Niagara Region offers a wealth of activities to keep visitors busy! The star of the show, of course, is the roaring Niagara Falls. Thrilling attractions allow you to take in her thundering power by land, water and air. Yet the Falls are just the starting point for visitors, so plan to spend several days in the area. This picturesque region is filled with lush parks and gardens, bountiful orchards and vineyards, and charming towns and villages.
Travel right to the edge of the Fall’s crashing waters on the Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat tour. Journey Behind the Falls for a view from the platform at Table Rock, then learn about the formation of the Falls at Niagara’s Fury. Take in the whole sweeping vista from atop the Skylon Tower or aboard a helicopter. Experience the mighty power of the Falls with 12,000 watts of power on a 6-storey screen at the IMAX Theatre.
Drop by Clifton Hill for scores of attractions - Niagara Skywheel, Louis Tussaud's Waxworks, Guinness Records, Nightmares Factory, Galaxy Golf Mini Put and lots more. Treat your family to hours awash with fun at Marineland and let excitement soar at the Butterfly Conservatory. Kids of all ages will love the indoor waterparks for wet ‘n wild fun! Nighttime entertainment abounds too, from casinos to Oh Canada Eh! Dinner Theatre to free fireworks over the Falls.
Just 30 minutes down the scenic Niagara Parkway, you’ll find Niagara-on-the-Lake, a historic town packed with charming shops, galleries and inns.
