How To Enjoy Niagara Falls On A Vegan Diet

by Vegan Culinary Cruises Luxury – All Inclusive – All Vegan

One of the best things about being vegan is that it’s completely possible to enjoy all of the fun and interesting things to do in Niagara Falls on a vegan diet. There are plenty of ways for you to experience the incredible waterfall, no matter what kind of activities you’re looking for or even if you're looking for new vegetarian recipes you've never tried before.

Niagara Falls has been attracting tourists for hundreds of years. The first tourists traveled by horseback or by wagon and stayed in farmhouses or small inns. Today, there are plenty more lodging options, including hotels, bed and breakfasts, cottages and campgrounds.

While visitors used to be primarily from Canada and the United States, today they come from all over the world to see one of North America's most incredible natural wonders -- a fact that has contributed greatly to Niagara Falls becoming a mecca for delicious vegan cuisine!

1. Visit the oldest Natural Cave Dripstone Cave System in the United States

Niagara Falls is home to the oldest natural cave dripstone cave system in the United States! The natural wonder was discovered in 1826 by a goat herder and his dog. Since then, it has been explored and studied by many geologists and archaeologists. The cave can be visited today at Cave of the Winds State Park, where you will find information about its history as well as tours of its interior.

2. Eat at Niagara Falls, a vegan restaurant (The Redwood Grill)

If you're looking for a place to eat while on your vegan excursion in Niagara Falls, Redwood Grill is the perfect spot. Located at 5455 Stanley Avenue, just minutes from the Falls themselves, this restaurant offers a great deal of gluten-free and vegan options. The reviews are consistently positive, with many patrons commenting on their love of the food and service.

For general dining options, they have a delicious selection of pastas (try the Rotini Primavera), burgers (their avocado burger is a must try), pizza (dip it in some garlic oil), and tacos (you can order them with either rice or salad). All dishes can be made vegan by simply omitting the cheese. For those who are lactose intolerant or still enjoy dairy occasionally, there are gluten-free and/or vegan cheese substitutes available.

3. Take a ride on the Maid of The Mist

One of the most exciting ways to get up close and personal with Niagara Falls is by taking a ride on the Maid of the Mist. This famous boat tour has been taking visitors for rides since 1846, and is named after an Iroquois legend about a young Indian maiden who jumped into the falls to save her people!

In addition to its fantastic history, it's worth noting that this attraction runs entirely on diesel engines, so if you're trying to be environmentally friendly while vacationing, plan your trip around this boat ride!

4. Get a Vegan Ice Cream Cone at Hershey's Ice Cream Shop

The next stop on your Vegan Niagara Falls adventure is Hershey's Ice Cream Shop. Hershey's Ice Cream Shop will sensually massage your taste buds with its glutinous and gelatinous vegan-friendly delicacies. The shop is located at 5400 Porter Rd, Niagara Falls, NY 14304.

Although the food here isn't exclusively vegan, it does have a nice selection of vegan delights. Just make sure you ask what's in each dish, since they don't label the ingredients very thoroughly. They do, however, have a wonderful vegan ice cream available every day. It comes in several flavors and can be enjoyed in a cone or bowl. So grab a sweet treat to keep you going while you explore the natural beauty of this incredible waterfall!

5. Visit Old Fort Niagara

Located on the northern banks of the Niagara River, Old Fort Niagara is one of several historical forts in the area. Originally constructed by French colonists in 1726, it was an important strategic location for both the French and British during their wars from 1689 to 1763. During that time frame, it changed hands many times, with each side gaining control over it as a result of victories in battles elsewhere.

Today, you can tour the exhibits within the Fort to learn more about its significance during this period of warfare—a story that's depicted through artifacts like cannons and muskets. Afterward, head outside to see where soldiers ran up and down catwalks to fire cannons at enemy ships passing by in Lake Ontario. Today, these views are only seen by tourists enjoying their own private boat tours of nearby islands and shorelines.

6. Walk in Whirlpool State Park

Whirlpool State Park is a good place to relax after a busy day of exploring the Falls. The park has a beautiful walking trail with stunning views. As it's open all year round and is free to enter, Whirlpool State Park offers a great alternative if you're staying in Niagara during the colder months.

In the summer, you can sit back and enjoy your picnic in one of its many picnic areas whilst listening to the relaxing sounds of nature. For those traveling with young children, there is also an expansive playground area where kids can run wild with other youngsters.

In addition to being outdoors, it also has an indoor museum filled with interesting facts about the area's history and geology as well as exhibits highlighting current attractions such as boat tours on the Niagara River (which connect Whirlpool State Park to Devil’s Hole State Park downstream) and Cave of Winds Tours at Niagara Falls (which includes climbing up into Hurricane Deck below Bridal Veil Falls).

7. Ride on the Observation Tower

The ride is free, and it is an excellent way to see Niagara Falls as well as the surrounding area. You can take great photographs from there, and many tourists like to ride on it year-round. You can see Rapids at the base of the Falls, and you can look over the Niagara River and up towards the Wi-Fi pool in one direction. In other directions, you will be able to view the city of Niagara Falls and even spot the Rainbow Bridge!

If you're looking for another adventure and see incredible sights than booking a vegan culinary cruise, Niagara falls is the place to be.
