Niagara Falls is one of the top tourist destinations in Ontario so it makes sense that it’s home to countless tourist attractions, but beware…everything has a price tag attached. For a typical family of 4 this could mean spending a lot just to see and do a few things. Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be the case because there are tons of inexpensive and even free activities to do around the falls…you just have to know where to look!
Located just a 10 minute drive north of the falls, the Botanical Gardens offers the perfect place to enjoy a serene walk through beautiful garden settings. Experience a wide variety of plant life including perennials, an arboretum and even a world class rose garden. The Garden’s footpath also takes you past the Butterfly Conservatory but take note that there’s an admission fee if you want to go in. Admission to the Botanical Gardens is free and parking is only $5.
