The Best Sunset in Niagara
Along with one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world, you can also expect to see some gorgeous sunsets in Niagara Falls. While a sunset is enjoyable on its own, it can also add another dimension to your experience when it’s shared with friends and family. When you plan special activities to enjoy at sunset, the result is a memorable, happy experience, filled with wonder, awe, and so much colour! Make sure to pack your camera and capture these breathtaking moments. The hour leading up to sunset, known as the lavender hour, is when you begin to see the sky change colour as the day and evening fade into night. This time is considered optimal natural light for film and photography.
For a truly spectacular view of Niagara Falls and the surrounding city, search no further than Skylon Tower. Take the signature yellow bug elevator five-hundred-fifty-two feet up in the air to the indoor/outdoor Observation Deck where you will have a three-hundred–sixty degree sky-high view! See the whole city of Niagara Falls, including the Falls themselves, the upper and lower rivers, and in every direction as far as Toronto and Buffalo on clear days.
With a vantage point like no other, Skylon Tower lets you not only savour the natural beauty of Niagara but also dine on gourmet foods and accompanying wines in their world famous Revolving Dining Room. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a scrumptious meal while the Revolving Dining Room offers you an ever-changing panoramic view of the Falls and its surroundings.
For a more casual meal, hundreds of visitor each day enjoy our Summit Suite Buffet. Variety meets quality in our international selections. While the dining room does not spin, you will be making the rounds for plate after plate of delight—just save room for dessert!
While the sunset says farewell to another day, it also welcomes in the nightlife! Every evening at dusk, the Falls are lit up like rainbow. The illumination of the Falls has been an important tradition in the area for almost 100 year, since 1925. It is a sight like no other, and you will be mesmerized by the power and beauty of Niagara at night.
Whether you want to be sitting around the dinner table with loved ones, unwinding after an active day or taking in the awe inspiring sights from the Observation Deck, Skylon Tower offers plenty of ways to get the most out of your Niagara Falls experience.
