What to aee & do in Niagara Falls? Niagara Falls guides help you travel around there.
Don a complimentary rain poncho, and prepare to get wet on a trip aboard the Hornflower. If you grab a spot on the coveted upper deck, you're privy not only to great views but a spray of water as the boat glides up to the thunderous falls. The Voyage To The Falls boat tour ventures into the heart of the Niagara Gorge and offers unforgettable scenery of the American, Bridal Veil and Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Boat rides are available daily from spring to late fall and last approximately 20 minutes.

Once you've experienced the falls from the water, head to the sky for a different perspective. Antique cable cars shuttle guests across the river for a view of the Niagara Whirlpool, the swirling torrent of water that forms at the end of the rapids where the river pushes through the gorge's narrowest channel. The ride is just 10 minutes and though you're high above the raging rapids the wildly swirling whirlpool is sure to get your adrenaline rushing.
Experience a more gentle side of Mother Nature with the fluttering wings of thousands of butterflies at the Butterfly Conservatory at the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture. Both kids and adults marvel at the beautiful and colorful tropical butterflies that make their homes in a rainforest setting featuring a pond, mini-waterfall and plenty of exotic flowers and plants. And if you wear brightly colored clothing, including hot pink, turquoise and orange, you may become a landing pad for these fragile beauties.
