Niagara Glen Nature Reserve
If you need a break from the crowds near the falls, visitors recommend you enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the Niagara Glen Nature Reserve. Situated off the Niagara Parkway on the Canadian side of the falls, this nature preserve overlooks the Niagara River and its natural whirlpool, offering more than 2 miles of trails through preserved Carolinian Forest.
Recent visitors enjoyed hiking through the preserve, especially in the fall, when the trees begin changing color. Reviewers were also impressed with the on-site nature center and its knowledgeable staff. From the center, visitors can also join daily guided hikes, which are available from May through August.
The reserve is open year-round. It's free to access, though you'll have to pay CA$1.25 (around $1) an hour for parking.
For yet another view of the falls, head to Clifton Hill, a tourist district on the Ontario, Canada, side of the falls filled with family-friendly attractions. This is where you'll find the Niagara SkyWheel. Billed as Canada's largest observation wheel, the Niagara SkyWheel offers climate-controlled gondolas that rotate 175 feet above the falls. From the SkyWheel, you'll be afforded views of the Horseshoe and American Falls, the Niagara River and other local landmarks. Rides last between 8 and 12 minutes.
Most recent visitors loved their experience on the Niagara SkyWheel and recommended taking a ride at night to enjoy the illuminated falls. Many travelers described the view as "spectacular," and said it was worth the ticket price.
You'll find the Niagara SkyWheel in Clifton Hill, on the Ontario side of the falls. The attraction welcomes visitors year-round, though hours vary seasonally. Tickets cost CA$11.99 (about $9.50) for adults and CA$6.99 (around $5.50) for kids 12 and younger.
