I’m Falling for the Falls — My Niagara Falls Trip 2019

Join me as I journey above, below, and behind Niagara Falls and all the other fun stops along the way.

Welcome to Niagara Falls! Clearly the Falls are the main attraction here, in Niagara Falls, Ontario and New York. Although the Canadian side is much larger and filled with more attractions, there are cool places to check out on both sides. Here are a few ways to get the full experience on both sides.

The Hornblower — 9/10

The Experience

If you are going to the Falls, The Hornblower is a must do! This boat ride gives you an unforgettable experience. As you venture close to the Falls, you will be greeted with a cloud of mist — don’t forget to put on your poncho or you will leave the boat soaked! While the boat drifts through the thick fog, you will hear the water roar all around. It is almost impossible to see through the mighty mist at the base of the Falls, but look up to the sky and you may catch a glance of a rainbow. From the deck of the boat, the Falls seemed as tall as skyscrapers. Make sure to bring a camera, but don’t drop your phone ;)

Journey Behind The Falls — 6.5/10

The Experience

Journey Behind the Falls is a great way to see the Falls from many perspectives. In this adventure, you take an elevator that brings you to the base of the Falls. When you get off the elevator you will find yourself in a tunnel. These tunnels are very cool and can lead you to outlooks, where you can see the water plunging down, like in the photo above. Another incredible thing to see here is the side view of the Falls. There is massive outlook next to Falls, which gives you the perfect picture moment. The line for this attraction can be very long at times, but overall I think it’s a pretty neat experience.

The Experience

If you ever want a nice scenic walk, Goat Island is the place to go. Goat Island is located on the Niagara river in between Horseshoe and Niagara Falls. On the Island there many walking paths that lead you to different outlooks and views of the fall, very relaxing. Also, if you want to add a little more excitement to your trip, we would recommend going to the Cave of the Winds. Like Journey Behind the Falls, you take an elevator to the base of the Falls. Then, hike across wooden walkways with a tour guide and experience a close up view of the Falls. There is also food on the Island if you get hungry ;)
