Visit the Niagara River and witness the natural beauty of the Canadian and U.S. border. Flowing north from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, the Niagara River forms part of the border between the Province of Ontario in Canada and the state of New York in the United States. The total drop in elevation along the river is 325 feet and the Niagara Gorge extends downstream from the Falls and includes the Niagara Whirlpool, along with another section of rapids. The Niagara River also features two large islands and several smaller islands.

 Tour Stop at 
 Tour Stop at  Whirlpool Rapids Bridge
Commonly known as the Whirlpool Bridge, the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge was designed and constructed by Leffert L. Buck in 1897. The bridge consists of two decks, an upper deck that carries railway traffic and a lower deck reserved for passenger vehicles. The Whirlpool Rapids Bridge is a spandrel braced, riveted, two-hinged arch bridge that crosses the international border between Canada and the United States.
Broderick Park
 Tour Stop at 
 Tour Stop at  Broderick Park
Given the Park's proximity to Canada, Broderick Park is historically important in that it served as a transit area for African-Americans heading for the border, on the opposite side of the Niagara River from the park. These activities were particularly precipitated by the passage of the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850, which to some measure brought about the 'nationalizing' of some of the consequences of the slavery practiced in the Southern states, and hence the increased flow of African-Americans travelers seeking liberty in Canada.
Stops may change due to traffic, weather, maintenance, etc.


Depart from the American side of Niagara Falls and be fascinated by the information shared along the tour, and general sense of determination felt as you retrace the brave steps of America's past freedom fighters. See the many sights of Niagara Falls, including the Falls themselves, while reliving an important part of American history with the Freedom Seekers Tour of Niagara.
