How to Spend 2 Days on the Canadian Side of Niagara Falls

How to Spend 2 Days on the Canadian Side of Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a spectacular natural wonder, and can be enjoyed from both the Canadan and US sides of the border. One advantage of visiting the Ontario side, however, is that you can also explore nearby towns, such as Niagara-on-the-Lake. Here are some ideas for what to do with two days on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

Day 1: Explore the town of Niagara Falls, ON

**Morning:**Start your trip by seeing the falls themselves. You can opt for a ride on the Hornblower Boat, descend 130 feet (40 meters) through stairs and tunnels to an observation platform on a Journey Behind the Falls tour, or take a scenic helicopter ride over the surrounding countryside.

**Afternoon:**Have a few laughs on the Street of Fun, otherwise known as Clifton Hill. This strip leading uphill from the falls features attractions like rides, wax museums, and houses of horror. It’s an especially appealing area for families with kids.

**Night:**On your first night in Niagara Falls, head out for dinner with a view. The 775-foot (236-meter) tall Skylon Tower boasts two revolving restaurants, and both offer spectacular views. Travelers with kids who need to eat on the early side will particularly appreciate their early-bird specials.

Day 2: Visit Niagara-on-the-Lake

**Morning:**The lovely town of Niagara-on-the-Lake sits on the shores of Lake Ontario, about a half-hour drive from Niagara Falls. Head to the area to take a tour—by car or bike—of local wineries, or to simply browse in the town’s shops and admire its historic buildings.

**Afternoon:**On the edge of Niagara-on-the-Lake, you’ll find Fort George, a military post built in the early 19th century, when the US and Canada were at war. See what life was like 200 years ago, watch staff in period costume do reenactments, and enjoy beautiful views of Lake Ontario and the Niagara River.

**Night:**On your last night in the area, take a sunset cruise along the Niagara River. The steep-sided Niagara Gorge is lush with forest and is a peaceful setting in which to relax, enjoy a drink, and toast your trip.
