Planning Your Visit To The Niagara Falls
Visiting the Niagara Falls is on most people´s bucket list and with good reason. The waterfalls are quite spectacular, they are certainly not a sight you are going to forget seeing, that is for sure.
Niagara is also a great place to stay and travel in Canada. As you will see, the area offers a lot more than just a trip to see the waterfalls.
All kinds of accommodation are available in the area, including several luxury hotels like the Marriott Niagara Falls Hotel. So, it is understandably a popular destination for honeymooners or couples who are celebrating their anniversaries.
A lot of the hotels have spa facilities, so they are the perfect place to relax and recharge. If you book a room with a Fallsview you can enjoy a bird’s eye view during the day and experience the light show, at night, in a unique way. It is a truly special experience, especially if you are lucky enough to be there on a night there is a full firework display.
Hiking and other outdoor activities
Much of the area around the Niagara Falls is protected and has been for over a hundred years. So, the countryside here is pristine. It is the perfect place to hike and enjoy nature.
Enjoy a picnic at Dufferin Islands
Just a couple of miles from the falls is Dufferin Islands. It is an unusual place that is perfect for a picnic. Just remember to take some bread to feed the ducks.
Visit Hershey´s chocolate factory
If you are a chocolate lover, you will enjoy the Hershey factory. It is fascinating and you get the chance to taste and buy all of your favorites. Best of all the tour is free and you can easily get there using public transport.
Stroll along Clifton Drive
Millions visit the falls, every year, so unsurprisingly, over the decades; plenty of attractions have been created to keep them happy. Some seem a bit tacky but are nevertheless great fun. You can find a lot of them along Clifton Drive. A walk along this street is always fun and is a great way to spend an evening. There is also a great theme-park for you to enjoy, during daylight hours.
Scare yourself silly
If you like haunted houses, visit Nightmare´s Fear Factory. Apparently, it is pretty scary. In fact, some people are so scared that they find themselves unable to complete the tour.
Spend a morning in Niagara-on-the-Lake
This is a beautiful place that has plenty of old-world charm. If you like antiques or are looking for a unique gift, it is a particularly nice place to visit. Be sure to spend some time in the heritage area.
Take a winery tour
Niagara is located within an easy traveling distance of several vineyards and wineries. Many of their tours are free, so all you have to do is to pay to get there. If you have not hired a car, it is probably best to book yourself onto one of the many coach trips that include a winery tour.
The above covers just a fraction of what you can do while staying in the area. It really is a unique and special place, which draws people back time and time again.
