Niagara Falls Holidays

Reference WW37908

The Niagara Falls are a tourist attraction like no other and have the ability to amaze visitors over and over again. If you want to get right into the heart of the Falls, put on a poncho and embark on one of the many water cruises available. Alternatively, take in the view from the sky from a large Ferris wheel or even a revolving restaurant. No matter which way you choose, the exhilaration of watching the thundering water is unforgettable.

Outside of the Falls, the city can be thought of as a ‘Little Las Vegas’. It is home to neon-light streets, countless tourist attractions – waterparks and casinos included - and vibrant nightlife. Similar to Vegas, Niagara is also the perfect destination to enjoy a little luxury. High-end dining is a huge part of life in Niagara Falls, with menus being packed with the highest quality local produce.

Niagara-on-the-Lake:

Niagara-on-the-Lake’s many attractions include historic sites - Fort George and the Historical Society Museum, the Shaw Festival with its three theatres, the marina, its heritage business district for shopping, golf courses, parks and beautiful farmland, agricultural markets and their world-famous Niagara wineries. Take a carriage ride through the Old Town, or a jet boat up the Niagara River. Bike between the wineries, sit on a patio, have lunch or dinner on the Niagara Sunset Cruise, a just take some time to walk along the lake.

A short drive along the scenic Niagara Parkway leads to Queenston Heights and Niagara Falls. Check out the Butterfly Conservatory at the Niagara Parks Commission site. Dine in the many varied restaurants, and, if even for a little while, journey back in time to a more leisurely time - the age of Niagara-on-the-Lake!

Seeing the falls itself was mindblowing. The large scale of it really took me away plus the city itself is definitely a must see. Full of lots of things to do and with a great variety of dining options.
