Winter in Nagara Falls provides us some really wonderful photo opportunities, despite the bitter cold.
There are plenty of breathtaking winter vistas in Niagara Falls, and they’re just wonderful when shared with someone special. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we have shared some of the best romantic photo opportunities in the Falls.
Get inspired by exploring our list below and find the best sites to capture your own Niagara Falls winter pictures:
#1 The Horseshoe Falls
At the edge of the Horseshoe Falls you’ll find the world famous Table Rock, where 2,800 cubic meters of water crash down to the base of the Falls below. Its a front-row view of the majestic Niagara Falls. It has many stunning lookout points that place you mere yards away from the thundering Horseshoe Falls.
#2 Niagara Falls Illumination
Every evening beginning at dusk the Falls are lit in the colours of the rainbow – don’t miss the unmatched beauty of the Falls at night! The illumination of Niagara Falls was first made permanent in 1925, but currently uses the latest LED technology to light the Horseshoe and American Falls. This lighting provides high impact brightness and a wide range of colours allowing for a full palette of colour combinations!
#3 Dufferin Islands
Take a drive (or walk!) through Niagara’s hidden gem for the season. Dufferin Islands features 10 acres of serenity – a quiet, secluded park containing several small islands connected by small bridges and footpaths. Come here for a magical experience around winter-time with the one you love.
#4 Niagara Parkway
The Niagara Parkway follows the Niagara River from Fort Erie and ends in Niagara-on-the-Lake. On your way through this winding stretch of land, be sure to bring out your camera and capture all the gorgeous Winter scenes along the way. From the Falls to the Niagara Whirlpool to Fort George, there is so many romantic views along the way.
For “old-time” romance, head into Niagara-on-the-Lake to experience timeless history in a vintage setting. Winter sees pastoral country side and a decked out downtown adorned in lights and decorations, and of course, visiting quaint shops, and staying at an upscale luxury hotel on Queen Street.
#6 Queenston Park
Standing 185 feet high, is Brock’s Monument located in Queenston Park. This structure was dedicated to Major General Sir Isaac Brock, one of Canada’s heroes of the War of 1812. On a Winter’s day, not only will you capture beauty, but a piece of history as well.
#7 Table Rock
The Table Rock Complex overlooks the Horseshoe Falls, and has fabulous lookout points that place you mere yards away from the thundering Horseshoe Falls. The complex is a popular location to capture amazing Winter shots day or night!
#8 Niagara Falls State Park
For our American friends, Niagara Falls New York Offers some stunning winter views at their State Park! Its the place to be for natural beauty, thrilling adventures and awe-inspiring fun. Majestic snowfall and ice have coated this area and created a must-see spectacle.
