After the falls, drive toward Niagara On The Lake via the Niagara Parkway, which goes along the Niagara River on the Canadian side. In the spring, plenty of deer with fawns. On the driver's side, look for the unexpected huge Temple of the Ten Thousand Buddhas. Hidden inside the Botanical Gardens is the Butterfly conservatory ($) with hundreds of butterflies flying around, good gift shop. When you get to the traffic circle, keep to the right where there is a rest stop to view the Niagara River. In the fall, lots of stands with local fruits and jams, plus pumpkins! Continue down the hill and after approx. 7 minutes, watch for the teeny white cathedral on the left.

Just before you turn right and head down towards Niagara on the Lake and the many Wineries is a Scenic Lookout that we have driven past many times without stopping. We happened to have relatives from England visiting and turned off hoping they would enjoy this different view of the Niagara River. We had no sooner parked than a bus and 4 other vehicles pulled off. The view was spectacular, the leaves had just started to turn and the American side of the river a great backdrop . Don't miss it. it truly is one of the best vantage points along teh river.

Of course, the Falls at Niagara are spectacular. But many people miss out on this gem of a drive along the Niagara River below the Falls on the way to Niagara on the Lake and Lake Ontario. There are many pull-offs for scenic views of the river, some beautiful homes to see, and some small but wonderful parks along the way. The Floral Clock is a must-see. When you are in the area take an extra couple of hours to take this drive, and be sure to stop and experience some of the quiet beauty and less-hectic ambience of this side of the Niagara experience

Very pleasant drive north of the falls. Lots of wineries to stop and visit. Nicely maintained highway. Very relaxing!

There is a small park just before the traffic circle at Queenston on the Niagara River Pkwy on your right coming from the Falls. It is called Locust Grove nice little place just far enough from the road to be relatively peaceful. There are a number of picnic tables and BBQs unfortunately there is no washroom facility. The most interesting thing about this place is the overview of the Niagara is also an extremely good place to view turkey vultures and occasionally birds of prey circling directly above your head you can almost touch them. A truly unique experience
