Though you can see Niagara Falls from dry land, nothing quite compares with experiencing the falls from the water. Niagara City Cruises boat tours—departing from the Canadian side—offer front-row views of the mighty falls, putting passengers well within the splash zone. Here’s what you can expect.

When to Get There
Movieland Wax Museum of the Stars is open year-round, providing both cool, air-conditioned respite from the summer heat and a warm refuge from Canada’s cold winters. The museum is busiest between May and November; go early in the morning or late at night (the museum stays open past midnight during the busy summer months of June, July, and August) to avoid the crowds.
Other Non-Falls Attractions
While the falls themselves are the star attraction, the town of Niagara Falls, Ontario offers plenty of alternative attractions to enjoy after you have seen the natural wonder. Marvel at the colorful inhabitants of Bird Kingdom (one of the world’s largest free-flying indoor aviaries) and the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory; test your driving skills on the Niagara Speedway go-kart track; play mini-golf at Wizards’ Golf or Dinosaur Adventure Golf; or amp up the adrenaline on the Wild West Coaster, a 6-D motion ride that uses visual and other sensory effects to create a thrilling experience.
