NIAGARA FALLS WALKING TOURS
One of the things that make Niagara Falls walking tours so popular is that many of the most visited attractions are positioned close together.
Part of this is due to the natural geography of the area (the actual falls are only so big and people want to get as close as possible), but the proximity of landmarks is also partly a strategic decision on the park of Niagara Parks and the City of Niagara Falls.
To answer the question about how much walking is involved in a Niagara Falls tour, it would depend on what you’re looking to see and do but here is some information to give you a good idea:
CLIFTON HILL + NIAGARA FALLS
It’s about a 22 minute walk from Clifton Hill to the edge of the Horseshoe Falls.
This means that after riding the SkyWheel and taking part in everything else Clifton Hill has to offer (restaurants, rides, souvenirs, attractions etc.,) you can take a scenic stroll along the parkway down to see the falls and back in less than 1 hour.
SKYLON TOWER + NIAGARA FALLS
This is a popular attraction combo in part because they’re only a 12-15 scenic minute walk away from each other.
After you can enjoy a nice lunch at the Summit Suite Buffet at the top of the Skylon Tower then digest on the walk over to see Niagara Falls.
NIAGARA FALLS BY ITSELF
If you’re just coming into town to stand near the roar of the horseshoe falls, there is a massive parking lot located a stone’s throw from the brink at 6635 Niagara Parkway.
It allows for the closest proximity and easiest access to the falls meaning your total walk time could be trimmed down to just a few minutes!
