  • You are taken to a high tower by a lift from where you have beautiful view of the Niagara Falls and the Niagara River..Must visit a point  more »
  • Glad it was free. Great view from the deck as it juts out past the walkways. Best view on the American side.  more »

  • The Niagara Falls Observation Tower is a MUST! It is included when you purchase a Maid of the Mist boat tour, and I recommend going on the observation deck before going on the boat. The view is amazing! You can see American Flags, Horseshoe Falls, the Rainbow Bridge, Canada and the United States. It does get crowded, so finding a spit on the rail might be difficult, but one will free up with time. Take a lot of great pictures here during the day and at night! They have a light show that starts at 9pm! Overall, this is a MUST see and worth every second!
  • When you visit the park you have to see the view from the observation tower. During the day you can go up to the tower when you take the Maid of the Mists not ride. However if you go after 7:30-8pm you can just go up on your own to see the beautiful falls at night. Don’t miss out!
