Enjoy fall foliage & fantastic views of Niagara

Nothing spells a Roaring Good Time like a visit to Niagara Falls. Now is the perfect time of year to see spectacular views of vibrant fall colors and one of the greatest Natural Wonders of the World. Explore the great outdoors, enjoy fun-filled fall festivals, and be sure to visit Old Fort Niagara to discover its haunted history!

Traffic has become increasingly insane at Niagara Falls over the years. Driving through stop-and-go traffic to then find no parking spaces can leave you stressed out and definitely not enjoying your visit. Do yourself a favor and take a stress-free tour from NYC or Toronto! My favorite is our Niagara Falls Wine Tasting & Waterfall Day Tour from Toronto. You will stop along the way to the Falls for a special visit to an award winning winery where you can enjoy a free sample of Ice Wine, a sweet treat made from local frozen grapes. You will then continue on to the charming village of Niagara-on-the-Lake and then on to the falls.

I would also highly recommend our Niagara Falls All American Illumination Tour. In addition to the spectacular and colorful night time Illumination of the Falls, this tour also includes a thrilling ride aboard the world famous Maid of the Mist Boat, Viewing the Falls atop the American Observation Tower, the adventurous Cave of the Winds Trip to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls, Attraction Fees, Parking Fees, Road Tolls, Pick-up & Drop-off Service, and much more.

On the popular Cave of the Winds tour, you will find that vanity is not an option next to that magnitude of Mother Nature’s incredible power. At Bridal Veil Falls, approaching the “Hurricane Deck,” be sure to take off your hat and hold on tight to it, or it will no doubt be doomed to a watery grave. The Hurricane Deck is so named because tropical storm conditions are present when you are that close to the Falls. It’s wet, it’s windy, it’s cold, it’s scary, and yes – you will get soaked to the bone. And you will absolutely LOVE IT. ;)

Hurry if you want to take a boat tour! After October 24th, the Falls will close as the water begins to freeze during winter. Check out Niagara Falls Tours for all of the best things to do in Niagara Falls from both New York and Canada!

For those who do not have 5 or 6 hours to spare but still want to get the most that Niagara Falls has to offer, check out the Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Tour by Van, which departs during the day to Canadian Wine Country for a chance to taste an assortment of wines and learn about the history of four area wineries.
