The beauty of Niagara Falls is definitely getting lost in its powerful waters but, if you're planning a trip to see this natural wonder anytime soon, make sure you pencil in some time for the city's other offerings too.

Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake (a 25-minute drive from the Falls) has everything from fancy wine estates to cheesy Vegas-style museums to top-notch hotels with dining and casinos. But one of our favourite attractions in the city is all of its greenery.

Surrounded by gardens and lakes, Niagara Falls offers everything from fishing to trails to boat tours in and around the majestic Falls. And if you're spending time on the Lake, well, that's just another city escape altogether.

Below, we've rounded up 15 great things to do in and around Niagara Falls whether you're travelling with the whole clan or spending a weekend away with your best friends.
