Niagara Falls is visited by millions of tourists every year. It's an amazing sight to behold, and it's no wonder that people travel from all over the world to see it. Niagara Falls is also a community in its own right with many other things to offer! Almost 90,000 people call this place home, and we are proud to be a wonderful place to live, work and play.
The falls that our town is named after are a source of inspiration and delight. Even if you've seen them a thousand times, the sight will still take your breath away. Don't just stop at the falls - there is so much more to see! There are a number of walking and biking trails. We are also a destination for golfers of all levels. If you're not the outdoorsy type, visit one of our many museums, such as the Battle Ground Hotel Museum. This museum is a former tavern that displays artefacts from the War of 1812. And for all the shoppers out there, don't worry! There are plenty of shops and outlets where you can shop til you drop.
Niagara Falls Trivia:
Charles Blondin was a French funambulist (that's a fancy word for tightrope walker). In 1856, he crossed the falls on a 340 metre long tightrope! He would go on to complete the stunt many more times, adding a twist each time. He crossed the falls blindfolded, in a sack, on stilts, and one time he sat down halfway through to cook and eat an omelette. While it must have been impressive, we don't recommend you try it yourself!
