Area Information
Aside from the fact that Niagara Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world, the region is one with many historical connections for Ontario.

The peninsula was the site for several significant battles between the Americans and British under General Brock during the war of 1812, and is the home area of Laura Secord.

Here, Sir Adam Beck generated the first Hydro-Electric Power in Ontario.

The Welland Ship Canal, as part of the St. Lawrence Seaway, provides a passage around The Falls for Ocean going vessels.   The seaway makes the great Lakes unique in the distance that ocean vessels can navigate into the continent (as far as Thunder Bay Ontario, and Duluth Minnesota).

The climate of the region makes this area an excellent fruit growing area, with Peaches, Apples, Pears, and Grapes being common.   This abundance of fruit also makes the region excellent for wine production, and many Ontario Wineries are located on the peninsula.

In the City of Niagara Falls there is a Casino, and many other tourist establishments including a revolving restaurant (the Skylon Tower), and the usual collection of other locations like Ripley's, a wax museum, and various midway style locations.

Niagara Parks Commission
Many of the natural attractions along the Canadian side of the Niagara Gorge are maintained by the Niagara Parks Commission.   The commission operates a bus, called the 'People Mover' along the river, and sells a day pass for $32 per adult.   The pass is good for unlimited travel on the bus, discount coupons for a number of attractions, and admission to
  • 'The Maid of The Mist' trip under The Falls,
  • The Walk behind The Falls,
  • The Butterfly Conservatory,
  • The Table Rock overlooking the brink of The Falls, and
  • the White Water Walk beside the Whirlpool Rapids.
More information is available at their website.

Commercial Tours
Niagara Airbus is one of the tour operators in the area, and offer a number of guided tours:
  • Niagara Falls and area,
  • Area Wineries,
  • Niagara on the Lake,
  • Hamilton, and
  • Toronto.
