Points of Interest in Niagara Falls
Most visitors' first view of the Falls, from the Canadian side of the river, is at Queen Victoria Park,  along the Niagara Falls Parkway. This grand, royal garden provides the perfect vantage point for experiencing both the nightly illumination of the Falls and the summer fireworks displays. The Falls are illuminated, , every evening until approximately midnight (see website for exact times) and there are Fireworks over the Falls, , Friday and Sunday nights in the summer months.
Niagara Parks offers a Great Gorge Adventure Pass, , that includes access to the Maid of the Mist, Journey Behind the Falls, White Water Walk, and the Butterfly Conservatory, a one-day People Mover pass and discounts for other attractions. Pass components do not have to be used on the same day. In general, it takes about 6 hours to complete the main attractions on the pass. One way to use the pass is to do the Maid of the Mist and Journey Behind the Falls on one day, and use the one-day People Mover pass to do the White Water Walk, Butterfly Conservatory/Botanical Gardens, and Aero Car (all of which are near each other, but farther from the Falls) on the second day.
- Maid of the Mist, 5920 Niagara Pkwy (near the foot of Clifton Hill),  . A boat that takes tourists to the foot of the falls, where you can better appreciate their thunder and spray. Runs April-October. Boats depart every 15 minutes and the ride is 30 minutes. See website for hours, they vary. Line-ups for this attraction can be quite long, try later in the day (1 hour or so before the last boat leaves) for a shorter wait. Many people use their digital cameras to take pictures, but they will get wet. Waterproof disposable cameras are offered for sale before boarding. Adults (13+ years): $14.50 (March 2008), children (6 to 12 years): $8.60, children 5 and under: free.
- Journey Behind the Falls, 6650 Niagara Pkwy (Table Rock Centre, beside the Falls). This is an interesting attraction to consider in lieu of Maid of the Mist (or when Maid of the Mist isn't operating). Although popular, the lines aren't nearly as long for "Journey" as they are for Maid of the Mist, and therefore may be a better option on crowded days, or for those travelling with small children. Ponchos are provided, as the Journey still offers participants the chance to feel the "spray" of the Falls, from portholes opening behind the Falls themselves, as well as access to a small open area on the bank of the river, no more than 200 feet from the base of the falls. An informative guided tour that still provides some--but not all--of the thrills of the other attractions. Open year-round except 25 December. Whilst this attraction remains open during winter, often some of the viewing points are inaccessible due to snow build up. Adults (13+ years): $12, children (6 to 12 years): $7.20, children 5 and under: free.
