Niagara Falls Gardens Park
Where's all the people?
We arrived on the Canadian side of the Falls about 10 AM, and there wasn't hardly anyone there.
We got some great scenic photos.
The whole area seemed like one big botanical garden. The Canadian people go out of there way to make your trip memorable.
The tulips and flowers were blooming everywhere. The gardens were so beautiful to walk through.
Crowded by Noon
As it got towards noon, people were arriving by the busloads. We sat on a bench and just watched the Falls in awe. You can see in the top picture the tall tower that is so popular. I believe there is a restaurant at the top.
You can also take a walk through downtown Niagara, it's only a block away, and eat in a small cafe, or shop for souvenirs in their little stores. They have little museums too, like a wax museum, and other little tourist traps, but it is lots of fun.
