    Explore one of North America’s most impressive, most popular and most powerful natural wonders — Niagara Falls — as well as several also-incredible nearby attractions along the Niagara River, on this exhilarating driving tour and exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences, from the best vantage point possible: the cockpit of your Porsche.

    A plethora of exciting and rare opportunities await as PCA UCR is granted unprecedented access to the magnificent Niagara Parks, including a very special visit and exclusive look at the 115-year-old decommissioned Canadian Niagara Power Plant that has been recently enhanced into a breathtaking immersive 3D sight and sound attraction (with newly-opening-this-year lower level next to the rushing river), scrumptious gourmet multi-course dinner at Table Rock House Restaurant overlooking the mighty Niagara Falls (and with private Porsche parking), as well as a cruise through picturesque Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake.

    The day’s extraordinary events begin with an early-afternoon meet-up just off the QEW in Vineland and a blast through some wonderful twists and turns, ups and downs, in Niagara escarpment back country.

    In 1943, Winston Churchill called the curvy meandering road along the Niagara River “the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world.” For this driving tour, however, we plot the route on a Friday for less traffic and fewer tourists, complete from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

    The driving tour travels through Queenston Heights. Did you know this is where Niagara Falls was originally located 12,300 years ago? Erosion has taken it away 11.4 kilometres down the river. Just one of many trivia tidbits to be gleaned, so don’t miss what will certainly be one of the most talked-about driving tours of the 2022 season.

    Perhaps book a hotel or bed and breakfast, make this driving tour into a little Niagara vacation. Conditions permitting, fireworks will be launched at 10 p.m., crackling and bursting over the falls and illuminating the rushing water and the night sky.
