What To Expect
The first place you’ll go is to see the beautiful Niagara Falls. Where every year, millions of people stand close to the Horseshoe Falls as the water roars over the edge. Table Rock is right next to the Falls, and once you get there, there’s a lot to do. From the Table Rock welcome center, you can get a close look at the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls for the best selfies and family photos.

The intricate designs on the Floral Clock’s face are made with up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants and are changed twice a year. The Niagara Parks horticulture staff takes care of the plants on the face of the Floral Clock, while Ontario Hydro keeps the mechanism inside the clock in good shape.

Niagara on the Lake Heritage District (Pass By)
Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Heritage District offers beautiful shopping, where our visitors are often found strolling. Revisit the glamour of the 1920’s and 30’s and find your perfect hat at Beau Chapeau. Canada’s oldest year-round holiday emporium.
Stop at Whirlpool Aerocar for a beautiful view. The Spanish engineer Leonardo Torres Quevedo came up with the idea for the Whirlpool Aero car, which has been in use since 1916. The cable car is held up by six strong cables and gives a great view of the Niagara Whirlpool. The Whirlpool is formed at the end of the rapids, where the gorge suddenly turns counterclockwise and the river flows out through the gorge’s narrowest channel. An old cable car will take you through the air high above the fast-moving Niagara River. Far below, the flow of water suddenly changes direction, making the Niagara Whirlpool, one of the most amazing natural events in the world. Sometimes scary, but always something to remember!

Sir Ada Beck II Generating Station (Pass By)
Since 1915, the Sir Adam Beck I Generating Station (GS) has been giving Ontario electricity that is clean and made from renewable sources. When Sir Adam Beck opened the Queenston-Chippawa Development on December 28, 1921, it was the biggest hydroelectric power station in the world. Between 1922 and 1950, it was called the Queenston-Chippawa Development. During the project’s busiest time, more than 10,000 people worked on it.
The Welland Canal (Pass By)
Ocean-going ships have curved hulls so they can handle rough seas and deeper drafts. When they sail on the Great Lakes, they usually only carry a partial load. They make up about 20% of canal traffic. It takes 9.4 million liters of water to fill a lock. No pumps are needed because everything is done by gravity.
Living Water Wayside Chapel
Your day trip from Toronto to Niagara Falls includes a visit to the Living Water Wayside Chapel – the smallest chapel in the world.
5 minutes • Admission Ticket Included
Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens (Pass By)
Drive through the Botanical Gardens in Niagara Parks. They are near the beautiful Niagara Parkway and the Great Gorge, about 10 minutes north of Niagara Falls. The Butterfly Conservatory is in this beautiful garden, which is also used as a unique outdoor classroom by students at the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture.
Journey Behind the Falls is a unique way to see the Falls from below and behind. It is open all year. By taking an elevator down 150 feet, visitors reach a short tunnel that leads to two outdoor observation decks and two portals right behind the Falls. At Journey Behind the Falls, you can see one-fifth of all the fresh water in the world crashing down into the basin below. During the daytime in the summer, more than 2,800 cubic meters of water rush over the edge at 65 kilometers per hour. Your Journey Behind the Falls tour will take 30 to 45 minutes, and in the spring and summer, you’ll get a free biodegradable rain poncho to protect you from the mist of the Falls. Elevators go down 150 feet through bedrock to tunnels that lead to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal, which is a third of the way behind the huge sheet of water. Then you walk to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks, which are right at the base of the Falls. Informational posters are a great way to learn about the past and present of the hallways you walk through. Journey Behind the Falls is one of the most famous things to do at Niagara Falls. Make sure you bring a camera that can get wet. (tickets could be bought)
