Partially Frozen Niagara Falls is a Stunning Winter Sight

In the past few weeks, Niagara Falls has experienced record-breaking winter weather with the cold temperatures and snow transforming the area into a breathtaking icy wonderland. The Canadian Horseshoe, American, and Bridal Veil Falls have partially frozen as a result, and now is the time to visit Niagara Falls to take in sight of their frosty beauty.

You can bundle up and take a walk along the Niagara Parkway to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls and see snow covered landscapes, icy water flowing over the edge, and the frozen water and snow mounds that have formed underneath.

If you’re looking for an indoor viewing experience, a Fallsview room at the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview hotel and Fallsview dining at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra restaurants are warm and wonderful options. Both the guestrooms and restaurant dining room offer stunning views of the Falls from floor-to-ceiling windows and you won’t have to brave the cold temperatures to take in the spectacular sight.

And for one of the most unique vantage points from which to view the partially frozen Falls, make sure to check out the iconic Journey Behind the Falls. This one-of-a-kind attraction lets you explore the 130-year-old tunnel system running directly behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and connects you with the beauty of the frozen water from behind.
