Ask any nature lover about his or her favorite vacation spots in the East Coast, and raves about the Niagara Falls are bound to come up. While the sound of rushing water and the sight of mist clouds around the waterfalls are enough to rejuvenate the senses, Niagara Falls bus tours are made even better if the day’s itinerary includes:
1. Niagara Falls Adventure Movie – Located near the visitor center, the Niagara Adventure Theater is a 45-foot stadium theater that screens the history of the Niagara. Many families can be seen here with their kids in tow, but even adults will appreciate learning a thing or two about Niagara’s history. Do you know the legend of the Maid of the Mist? This fascinating Native American lore is explored further in detail here in the Legends of Adventure movie. For first-time visitors, this documentary-style film is a must-watch as it is told from the perspective of the area’s earliest inhabitants who had wished to conquer the natural wonder by walking on tightropes and building bridges, among others.
2. Whirlpool Park – Follow the trail by the gorge and you’ll end up at the whirlpool and rapids of the Whirlpool State Park. Should you be given the opportunity to spend the day here freely, you can gather the family around for a relaxing picnic and then go on a thrilling boat ride at the rapids. On the other hand, if you wish to stay on land, a stop at the Gorge Natural History Room will prove to be educational, as the center showcases various exhibits on the area’s rich history and geology.
3. Old Fort Niagara – Around three centuries ago, Old Fort Niagara played a historic role in the colonial wars of North America. This is because a military base at the mouth of the Niagara River practically dictated control over the water and other resources in the region. If you want to go back in time and see what life had been like in the 18th century, this is the place to be. You and your kids will be provided a guided tour around the original 18th-century buildings and period rooms where you can see what living conditions were like. While you’re here, don’t forget to snap some photos with the actors in their authentic military uniforms!
