|About these ratings|
If you're looking to view the falls from a more natural setting than the Maid of the Mist or the Journey Behind the Falls, spend a few hours stretching your legs on the White Water Walk. This quarter-mile boardwalk overlooks the Great Gorge Rapids from the Canadian side of the Niagara River, where the water rushes by at an average of 22 miles per hour. Along the walk are two observation areas where you can get a great view of the falls and the turbulent whirlpool below.
Entry to the White Water Walk is located along the Niagara Parkway, and prices range from around $9 USD for adults to $6 USD for children (which some recent visitors think is too much for the experience). However, admission to the boardwalk is also included when you purchase an Adventure Pass. Hours of operation depend on the season and can be found at the White Water Walk website.
