Create an itinerary including Niagara Falls Observation Tower
Admire the wild cascades and raging whitewater from Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Extending out over the gorge, the observation deck offers panoramic views of American and Horseshoe Falls at the same time. Take the elevator to reach the base of the gorge and the boarding site for boat tours. From there, you can climb flights of stairs to the Crow's Nest and feel the gusts of misty Niagara spray. Bird enthusiasts are drawn to the tower by good chances to spot peregrine falcons and bald eagles. On a clear, sunny morning, you can snap a picture-postcard photo of a rainbow over the American Falls.

  • Great views! Not sure if they usually charge in the warmer months but it was free today. Breathtaking. Very high and windy.

  • Niagara Falls at Night is the best… I visited from US side and looked into the city skyline of Canada. ❤️❤️ And the feeling was awesome. Also I got to see the speedy river that falls down as Niagara. The colour lights placed in Niagara made is more beautiful. The best part is walking along the river with the beautiful sounds of flowing river and falls and adoring the city other side via Niagara Falls. The parks pathways are well lit during nights. Parking is available and there are many shops near by. Especially there is a Hard Rock Cafe , bars and Indian cuisine too.
  • Jumped off twice great. Swim be ware of rocks....
