Holidays in Niagara Falls offer a blend of fun, entertainment and adventure.
No visit to Niagara Falls is complete without a trip to its famous waterfall — which has the highest flow rate of any in the world. Take a tour to this spectacular site where you can feel the spray of Horseshoe Falls as it plummets 13 storeys. Get a view of the area from above with a helicopter ride or watch the water tumble from the Niagara Skywheel. Of course there's much more to the city than its waterfall. Niagara Falls is packed with bars, shops, theatres, museums, galleries, parks, and historical sites making this an ideal destination to enjoy both day and night.
Featuring stunning landscapes and a friendly atmosphere, Niagara Falls is the ideal place for exciting holidays.
A great time to visit Niagara Falls is between June and August. However, the weather should still be nice and there may be fewer crowds if you go in September. Temperatures usually reach about 25°C-28°C during the summer, which means it's easier for you to enjoy the parks and outdoor activities. Winter is extremely cold and some attractions, such as the boat tours, are closed.
Niagara Falls offers lots of things to do. Enjoy North America's largest indoor water park, featuring a wave pool and 16 water slides, or feed beluga whales and deer at Marineland. Niagara Botanical Gardens is filled with rose gardens and even a butterfly conservatory making it ideal for walking, cycling or simply enjoying a picnic. Known as a great Canadian wine region, there are many tours and tastings to enjoy. Why not go to Skylon Tower — which has three observation decks — where you can find an amusement area and 4D theatre? Visit the world's largest free-flying indoor aviary — Bird Kingdom — or try Niagara Falls History Museum.
Niagara Falls is a great city for dining and drinking. Queen Charlotte Tea Room is a very popular British-style teahouse serving traditional meals such as roast beef, fish and chips, and bangers and mash. You also have seafood dishes at Tide and Vine Oyster House, traditional meals at Napoli Ristorante & Pizzeria, and tasty steaks and cheesecakes at Sandstone Grillhouse. Niagara Falls is home to a variety of drinking venues, too. Try local wine at Weinkeller, enjoy a lively atmosphere at Doc Magilligan's Irish Pub & Restaurant, or catch live music acts at Spyce Lounge.
Niagara Falls is home to plenty of nightspots, from friendly pubs and bars, to comedy venues and nightclubs. There are some excellent wine bars in the area, such as Terrior La Cachette and Corks Wine Bar & Eatery, as well as livelier places including the outdoor Beer Garden Karaoke Patio and Club Mardi Gras Niagara. For something more low-key you have lots of casinos and cocktail lounges scattered around the city. Of course, you can also find bowling alleys, cinemas and theatres open in the evening, too.
