Niagara Falls sits on the west bank of the winding Niagara River in southern Ontario. The main draw is, of course, the 3 legendary waterfalls that stretch across the border between Canada and the United States. To really appreciate this awesome natural spectacle, take a boat trip right to the foot of the ferociously thundering falls – just be prepared for a soaking.

    The town’s also home to an array of kid-friendly attractions. Here you can come face-to-face with majestic killer whales and graceful dolphins, or brave adrenalin-pumping thrill rides like the looping Dragon Mountain coaster.
