For those who know that with great risk comes great reward, these recommendations take you right to the edge, literally. From jetting to the edge of a whirlpool to soaring over the Falls, the adrenaline will rush through you as fast as the rapids rush through the Niagara River.
There’s nothing like a visit to Niagara Falls USA to get your heart pounding. Go face-to-face with the Bridal Veil Falls and get soaked on the Hurricane Deck where you are just feet from the thundering waters on the Cave of the Winds tour!
Rent a bike and tour Goat Island and other areas of Niagara Falls State Park.
Make your way to one of the oldest military installations in the U.S., Old Fort Niagara. From authentic battle reenactments, musket firings to artisans applying their trade, you can spend hours marveling at how so many things in life have changed.
Then, enjoy a thrilling ride along the Niagara River as you skirt along the edges of the Whirlpool Rapids. Whether you ride the Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours or Niagara Jet Adventures, both companies offer wet and dry seating, but for the full experience you definitely need to get soaked! (Just be sure to bring a change of clothes.)
Continue the excitement while taking on the “Haystack Sandwich” challenge (As seen on Travel Channel’s Man V. Food) at the Silo Restaurant, a renovated coal silo overlooking the Niagara River.
Get your adrenaline going again as you soar over Niagara Falls State Park and experience a one-of-a-kind view of the cascading Falls with Rainbow Air Inc. Helicopter Tours.
Next, head to North Tonawanda for dinner at The Remington Tavern & Seafood Exchange. It doesn't get any fresher then The Raw Bar, with oysters, mussels, or clams.
In the evening, high atop the Niagara River Gorge, let the music rush over you at Artpark, an 150-acre open air venue.
