Niagara Falls, Ontario is one of Canada's most renowned tourist destinations offering an eclectic array of both natural and man-made attractions along with a full calendar of family-friendly events and festivals throughout the year. Located along the shores of the Niagara River approximately 80 miles southeast of Toronto, this compact city of 82,000 is connected to Niagara Falls, NY via the 950-foot Rainbow Bridge.
Visitors here can enjoy breathtaking views of the Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Falls from the riverside parks and walkways, as well as the numerous hotels and restaurants that overlook the falls.
During the winter, sub-zero temperatures transform the area into a snowy playground complete with nightly light displays and an outdoor skating rink. During the warm summer months, visitors can explore the elaborate public gardens and vineyards, explore the vibrant Clifton Hill or try their luck at one of two full-service casinos.
