With travel on hold for now, there are still ways to experience Niagara Falls USA from a distance—virtually. From playful penguins to scenic views of historic sites, these attractions are all just a click away.
The Giacomo Live Streaming Webcam
High atop The Giacomo hotel, this live webcam overlooks both the Upper Rapids and downtown Niagara Falls—shifting views every 10 to 15 seconds. Tune in at night and witness the nightly illumination.
Aquarium of Niagara #ClosedButCaring Facebook Live Videos
While we're at home practicing social distancing, the dedicated staff at the Aquarium of Niagara are diligently attending to 120+ species who require daily care. Watch Facebook Live every day at 2 p.m./EST and go behind-the-scenes with an Aquarist. From jellyfish breeding to a “live” sea lion show, viewers can enjoy a front row seat and participate via comments. Each day will be accompanied by an activity you can do from home, too.
Old Fort Niagara Live Streaming Webcam and Distance Learning Webinars
The past is always present at Old Fort Niagara, an 18th century fortress located north of the Falls. But for now, you'll have to view their grounds on a hi-def live webcam. See the famed "French Castle" and "South Redoubt"—and when the Fort is open for business, you can enjoy partial views of their many annual events. Be sure to turn up the volume and enjoy the soothing sounds of Lake Ontario.
And for history buffs seeking more information on Fort Niagara’s military history from the early 1700s to World War One, participate in a variety of free, distance learning videos via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. Each webinar is 30 minutes and suitable for adults and children. Sign up here for webinars taking place on the following dates: June 2, 4, 9, 11, 16 and 18, 2020.
