I think my favourite part of visiting this place was the pictures I got. The view is just amazing, hardly any words to describe it,

We walk along the Whirlpool Scenic Overlook Trail with views of the swirling rapids and whirlpools of the Niagara River and the lower Niagara Gorge. Along the trail are informative signs about the Niagara Gorge’s history. The trail is easy walking and there were very few people on the trail. Across the river, on the Canadian side, is the Spanish Aero Car that takes passengers 250 feet above the Whirlpool. Because of its geographic location, the cable car operates on a seasonal basis. We have done the cable car on a previous trip. If you are not afraid of heights it is a fun thing to do. The Whirlpool State Park area isn’t as dramatic as the falls viewing area but it is pretty, less crowded, and worth the visit.

The view of the gorge is very pretty. Of the whirlpool itself all you will basically see is some white water twirling around and maybe a boat from one of those whirlpool tours. There is also a cable car that will take you across the gorge.

THe views of the river from walk are just breathtaking. I would recommend that one does this, as the crowds thin out at this end. Its nice and quite.

We just figured more water...but when you get there and see it...wow...have to see it in person. The pictures of it don't do much for it. Just to go and watch it as the water turns around just like a whirlpool. Our family loved it.
