Trip Planner: USA / New York State / Niagara Falls / Niagara Falls Observation Tower
Admire the wild cascades and raging whitewater from Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Extending out over the gorge, the observation deck offers panoramic views of American and Horseshoe Falls at the same time. Take the elevator to reach the base of the gorge and the boarding site for boat tours. From there, you can climb flights of stairs to the Crow's Nest and feel the gusts of misty Niagara spray. Bird enthusiasts are drawn to the tower by good chances to spot peregrine falcons and bald eagles. On a clear, sunny morning, you can snap a picture-postcard photo of a rainbow over the American Falls.

Niagara Falls Observation Tower reviews
The observation tower will give you a great view of the closest fall, but to really feel the force of the water you'll need to get closer.

Family had a great time. All staff was super nice. There was no real wait to board the boat. The ride over was smooth. Lots of opportunities to get wet. Well worth the money. Glad we got to experience it. There are also a few seats if you want to sit for a bit.
I’ve always wanted to go here and it didn’t disappoint. As someone coming from the NYC area, traffic through Buffalo to Niagara was non existent. The town itself on the American side was nothing special and the Canadian side visually looks prettier and seems to have more attractions, but thanks to covid, going over the border was a no go. Definitely beautiful and a tick off the by her list.
