Skylon Tower
Observation Deck
You can't miss Skylon Tower (pictured above) — at 775 feet, it's the tallest structure in the area and second-most famous landmark after Niagara Falls. Take the glass elevator to the Observation Deck (there's also a world-famous Revolving Dining Room and Summit Suite Buffet Dining Room) for great views of Niagara Falls, The Great Gorge, the Niagara Wine Region, and the surrounding area (including Buffalo and Toronto skylines on a clear day) — it's a "must-see" attraction for kids and big kids too!
