The fireworks are seen directly in front of American Falls, over the spectacular Niagara River, our recommendation and the best advice from the experts is to see the fireworks from Queen Victoria Park, usually the best place and as a small setback, if you travel in high season should go before and look for the best place with a clear view, since half an hour before, is when there is a large stampede of people arriving at the last minute.
