My Best Trip to Niagara Falls

Hello and welcome to Weekend Coffee Share #40! I’m glad you’re here. Please come on in, help yourself to a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at my coffee station and let’s chat.

My sister and I took a day trip to Niagara Falls at the end of September for two purposes:

  1. To revisit Niagara Falls.
  2. To walk the Fleurs de Villes floral trail.

The weather was ideal on the day of our visit: Sunny, high 21C (70F), and calm wind. Without traffic, we covered the 126 km (78 miles) driving distance from Toronto to Niagara Falls, Ontario in about 1.5 hours.

Niagara Falls is a group of three waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls. The largest of the three is Horseshoe Falls. It’s named Horseshoe (since 1721) because it looks like a horseshoe. It’s also known as Canadian Falls since it’s situated in Canada. The other two falls are in the United States.

The main road along Niagara Falls is Niagara Parkway. During this visit, we were lucky to see several variations of the rainbows over Niagara Falls: one rainbow, double rainbows and full rainbow arch. They were incredible and stunning!

Niagara Falls in Photos

Here are some photos of Niagara Falls. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Niagara Falls parking lot.
Arrived at 10 AM at an empty parking lot with a ‘loosey goosey’ traffic jam.
Horseshoe Falls in the morning with rising mist.
First glimpse of Horseshoe Falls at 52 meters (170 feet) in height and about 670 meters (2200 feet) wide. The combination of massive volume of water and flow speed produce the mist high in the air.
The Niagara River.
The Niagara River flows at approximately 56.3 kilometers/ hour (35 miles/ hour).

Ways to Experience Niagara Falls

I’d recommend first time visitors to experience the falls by:

  • Walking along Niagara Parkway at day time and staying late to see the falls illuminated every evening beginning at dusk (free).
  • Boat operated by Hornblower Cruise or Maid of the Mist.
  • Getting behind Horseshoe Falls. See Journey Behind the Falls.
  • Dining at the Skylon Tower. Its Revolving Dining Room restaurant silently rotates 360 degrees every hour, giving diners a constantly changing vantage point.
  • Helicopter or zipline if you’re adventurous.

If time permits, I’d recommend a longer stay to explore Niagara historic sites, parks, gardens, wineries, the Whirlpool Rapids, and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

I feel fortunate to have had many visits to Niagara Falls, one of the Earth’s natural wonders. This trip was by far the best: Perfect weather, no crowd, spectacular Niagara Falls with rainbows, girl time with my sister, good food, and beautiful Fleurs de Villes Niagara Falls floral trail.

Do you have to reserve tickets for the observation tower? Your photos make me want to visit again – from Canada, on a glorious day. The gull is a standout.

      Hi Suzanne, Yes, do visit Niagara Falls from the Canadian side and on a glorious day. It’s necessary to buy tickets online for the observation decks of Skylon Tower. If you dine at the Skylon Tower revolving restaurant then admission to the Ride-to-the-Top and Indoor/Outdoor Observation Decks is free. On the US side, the Observation Tower charges a small fee to ride the elevator but the views are not as impressive as from the Skylon Tower.

    Your photos are spectacular, Natalie! Nice to live relatively close to this natural wonder. I’m glad you got to spent an entire day at the falls, and in good company. Mark, Maya, and I visited Niagara Falls from the Canadian side a couple of years ago. More crowds, but still spectacular and with a blue sky. We even camped for free (boondocked) at a small parking lot close by, which allowed us to see the light display in the evening and be annoyed at the summer fireworks. (That’s when we learned that our then newly-adopted dog, Maya, was petrified of fireworks.)

So, obviously haven’t been to the falls, but they are spectacular. Seeing these photos reminds me of the troubles of travel photography. The weather Gods aren’t always on your side. So, you did well and were lucky.

    Niagara Falls is truly one of the wonders of the world, Natalie, a place I long to visit! Your pics are gorgeous (love the gull perspective and the goose parking) and I appreciated your advice about how to see the area if you’re first-timer!

      Hi Terri, I hope you get to visit Niagara Falls on both US and Canadian sides. It’s a destination that visitors can do a day trip or an extended stay and not get bored at all. Lots to see and do there.

    Had so much fun viewing your stunning series! It brought back so many good memories.
    We visited Toronto briefly in the early 1990s and drove them Niagara Parkway. We stopped to view the falls from there and I think that remains my favourite memory of the breathtaking wonder.

    Several years later, I visited NY state and visited the falls from the other side.

    Visiting again now vicariously through year really makes me want to return.

      So great that you visited Niagara Falls on both sides, Canada and the USA. I hope you get to visit the falls again, especially Horseshoe Falls.

    Gosh Natalie, I did a lot of “wowing” at those photos. What a great place and such a unique place. It’s well-known for sure but I wasn’t aware of the two different sides/areas in each country. Thank you so much for sharing.
    Thank you for linking up for #LifeThisWeek. Your post is a welcomed contribution to the community. Next week, the optional prompt is Self Care Stories. Instead, for me, I am doing a Wrap Part One of Women of Courage stories. I hope to see you next week too. Denyse.

      Denyse, I’m glad you liked my photos of Niagara Falls and now you know it’s a group of three falls, two in the US and one in Canada. The weather was perfect that day for walking and photographing. I look forward to the next link-up. Have a great week!
