You can’t visit the Niagara region with seeing the Falls! Hop aboard the Maid of the Mist for an unforgettably close view, or take a Journey Behind The Falls for a different perspective. Take an exhilarating helicopter ride to get stunning aerial views, or get the most thrilling version on a high-speed Whirlpool Jet Boat tour. Make sure to include a romantic meal at the Skylon Revolving Dining Room, 775 feet above the falls.
