Fireworks Over Niagara Falls

What better way to end your day in Niagara Falls than by watching the illumination and fireworks display over the falls?

Niagara Falls is illuminated every evening with various colors to showcase the falls in a unique way. Recently, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board took on a project and started using lights with new LED technology, highlighting the falls in more vibrant and energy efficient colors. Beginning at dusk, all the lights are turned on and the falls are illuminated, sometimes in colors coordinating with a specific theme. Make sure you check this out during your visit!

Another spectacular show to experience is the fireworks display over Niagara Falls. On selected dates, fireworks start at 10pm and are free for everyone to watch! It's absolutely a special way to enjoy your evening, especially if you have the best spot for viewing them. And where is the best place to watch the fireworks? Here's our personal short list that we'd like to share with you:

1. Goat Island - this is probably the most popular spot, but a great one! There's a lot of area to walk around or even maybe set up a blanket so you can lounge before the show.

2. Luna Island - since a lot of people take their places for the show in Goat Island, most don't think of going to Luna Island, which has a smaller viewing area, but if you ask us, it's a better spot for the fireworks display! It could get a little bit more crowded because it's a smaller space, so get there early for a good spot!

3. Rainbow Bridge - if you have your passport (and Canadian visa, if needed) with you, try viewing the fireworks from the bridge! Cross as a pedestrian so you can stop in the middle of the bridge and catch the show from there. It's a different viewing area that you'll surely enjoy!

4. Last but not the least, another great place to watch the fireworks display is... THE RED COACH INN! Yes, you've read that right. Our property sits just 500 yards away from the brink of the Falls, giving us the perfect location for seeing the fireworks from afar, away from large crowds. One can just step outside of our front door and see the show, or if you are staying in our Brighton or Somerset rooms, you can see them from the comfort of our rooms! The large picture windows in those rooms give you a view of the river, a part of Goat Island, and the Canadian skyline--perfect for watching the fireworks display.

All these spots are within walking distance from the Red Coach Inn. During your stay, you'll be able to walk around to all major attractions with ease, even Canada! We truly have the best location!
