DSLR’s, Smart phones, and selfie sticks! Oh my!
Sightseeing and photos go hand in hand when on vacation so it is no surprise that selfies and super attractive photos have created the rise of one of the most popular social media platforms of all time. Technology has come a long way in recent years, and it seems like everyone has a high definition camera right in their back pocket! Niagara is full of scenic views, and unique photo opportunities so we thought we would compile a list of our favourite instagrammable spots in Niagara. No filter needed.
With its manicured gardens and linear tree arrangements, Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens have been the backdrop of many Instagram shots, wedding portraits and delightfully slow Sunday strolls.
Journey Behind the Falls
The lower observatory deck of Journey Behind the Falls gets you as close to the base of the falls as you can get! With the sun shining down you can count on rainbows shining behind you in the mist. The iconic yellow ponchos add a pop of colour! The only thing missing is your smile!
Clifton Hill has been a hub for family friendly fun for over 100 years! There are many old favourites to photograph such as the giant Frankenstein eating a Whopper Hamburger to the giant Niagara Skywheel ferris wheel. Already done that? New backgrounds include the T-rex from the Dinosaur Mini Golf or time your shot for when the giant volcano erupts with fire in to the sky! This street is sure to please all photographers and add flashes of colour, visual interest, and also capture the essence of FUN that is a part of every Niagara Falls adventure.

Niagara is synonymous for wine country! With so many picturesque vineyards and barrel cellars, it is impossible to name just one. Grab and angled shot out in the linear vineyards with your selfie stick for a post that is sure to get all your friends to click LIKE! OR inside, hold up your glad of red in the dimly lit barrel cellar for a photo with a warm glow. Not to mention shots of the delicious food that is expertly plated and is just waiting for a post of its own!
No trip to Niagara Falls is complete without a selfie beside the falls! Get right on the brink behind the Table Rock Welcome Centre, and experience the rush as you see 600,000 gallons of water flow over the falls every second. Keep an eye out for rainbows! This is a must do shot that is sure to be the cover on your photo album.
