Fallsview Casino Resort may be the crown jewel in Niagara's stunning array of wonders, but it certainly isn't the only jewel to be found in this beautiful and diverse region.
The Falls themselves – over 10,000 years in the making – remain one of the most awe-inspiring sights in the world. While most people visit during the summer months, many are beginning to discover that the Falls are at their most breathtaking in winter.
Thanks to the Niagara Parks Commission, the Falls are at the heart of a gorgeous public park that runs along the Canadian side of the Niagara River. The Niagara Parkway through this incredible park is one of the prettiest drives in the world. The park also features a number of Niagara's signature attractions, including the Maid of the Mist, the Journey Behind the Falls, the Whirlpool Aero Car, the Botanical Gardens and the Butterfly Conservatory. New to the park in 2008 is Niagara's Fury, a 360-degree multimedia show located at Table Rock that depicts the dramatic glacial forces that created the Falls.
Looking for a fun way to get around town and view all of these amazing attractions? Enjoy a ride on the WEGO, Niagara Falls' newest and most convenient visitor transportation system. This state-of-the-art bus system connects accommodations and tourist attractions throughout the city of Niagara Falls and Niagara Parks. Please be advised that Niagara Fallsview Casino does not sell tickets, so be sure to visit the WEGO website for more information.
History buffs will find a wealth of interesting places to visit, as some of the fiercest fighting during the War of 1812 took place in and around what are today the communities of Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Fort Erie. Reconstructions of two historic British forts – Fort George in the north and Fort Erie in the south – serve as bookends for a number of battlefields that represent some of the most important clashes of the war, including Chippewa, Lundy's Lane and Queenston Heights.
For those who like their history more on the quaint side, Niagara-on-the-Lake might be just the thing. The capital of Upper Canada from 1792 to 1797, the old town maintains its 18th century charms while playing host to dozens of interesting little shops and restaurants. Niagara-on-the-Lake is also home to the renowned Shaw Festival – one of the finest live theatre companies in the world.
