Any visit to southern Ontario is incomplete without a visit to Niagara Falls.
As we had based ourselves in Niagara-on-the-Lake, we decided that an evening visit to The Falls was in order. In the evening, the roads were quieter, so we decided to take the car, and parked close to the Horseshoe (Canadian) Falls.
At night, the falls are floodlit.
The most spectacular views are of the Horseshoe Falls. The closest point to the falls on the Canadian side is at Table Rock.
The following day, we returned to Table Rock. Unlike our evening visit, during the day we parked at the Butterfly Conservatory and took the WEGO transport to The Falls.
After lunch at Table Rock, we walked along Niagara Parkway towards the Rainbow Bridge. There are two boat companies that take visitors to the falls. The Maid of the Mist from the American Side, featuring blue disposable ponchos.
The Maid of the Mist used to serve the Canadian side as well, however it is now served by Hornblower Cruises, featuring red ponchos.
Further down we passed the American and Bridal Falls on the other side of the river.
Having reached the Rainbow Bridge, we got back on the WEGO transport to the Niagara Whirlpool. This is where the river having passed through the rapids takes a sharp right angled bend and heads down towards the escarpment. A cable car, called the Spanish Aero Car takes visitors across the whirlpool.
