I am not one to do the tourist thing, and on my way to see the Floral Clock, I stopped to look at the whirlpool about four or five miles from the falls. It is very neat to watch how things collect within this arm of the chasm and watch the aerocar cable back and forth. I thought it was... More

Here you go to see the stream of flow. This place u can identify how Niagara is separating Canada and USA. I went from New york (USA) side and able to see Canada part. Take some toor trip so that you can cover the attractions.

The greenery all around, the lovely emerald waters and the well maintained trails and lawns will make you want to stay here longer. I wish I had had more... More
