Niagara Falls contains a plethora of exciting, exotic, entertaining and even informative places to visit while in this bustling city. Some of the locations are managed by nature, some are supervised by The Niagara Parks Commission and the city itself, while others are business start-ups by local residents hoping to cash in on the popularity of this natural wonder.
Here are 5 examples of things you can do while staying in Niagara Falls, Ontario CANADA
Stay at the Falls Avenue Resort
The Falls Avenue Resort is a 20-acre Entertainment Complex complete with 3 Hotels, attraction rides, shopping outlets, spa lounge, and prides itself for hosting the Largest indoor Water park in North America. Residing right next to the thunderous Niagara Falls, you are just a minute walk from enjoying one of nature’s most wondrous views. Boasting one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world, you can view the spectacle from one of many viewing platforms located on the river’s edge or directly from the window of your hotel room.
Visit the Local Attractions
Whether you prefer the excitement, informational, or a mix of the two, Attractions in Niagara Falls range in variety, offering all walks of life differing experiences to match their taste. How about riding the SkyWheel where you get to oversee the entire Falls Avenue Clifton Hill District, which offers a breathtaking view both in the daytime or in the evening when lights seem to dance across the landscape, including the powerful spotlights that aim up against the Falls, bathing the cascading waterfalls in a hue of rainbow-like colors. Or maybe a closeup of those waterfalls at the Maid of the Mist boat ride that brings you dangerously close to the raging rapids and cascading falls. Or if adrenaline boost is what you crave, take a ride on the WWE Pile Driver or visit one of the many haunted attractions, like Nightmares Fear Factory, House of Frankenstein, or Dracula’s Haunted Castle for spine-tingling fun.
Shop Til You Drop
Scattered throughout the entire Fallsview & Clifton Hill area you can find shopping outlets specializing in all types of wares, from stores offering specialty sweets to clothing stores themed to offer apparel that can entice or even scare, if you enter those outlets next to the Haunted Attractions.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
Where better to enjoy the excitement of the Heart of Niagara Falls, then visiting the many themed restaurants in Niagara. What makes Niagara’s offerings of restaurants within the tourist district is the fact that most of these establishments allow the passerby to enter the lounge area, typically decorated in garb that best defines its menu, and browses around without the need of a reservation or even the pressure to feel you have to eat there. In fact, some of these Niagara Falls Restaurants look like a museum or attraction themselves. Although prices may be a bit inflated to pay for the mock setups that attract the many visitors and not to mention the cost of hosting your restaurant business in such a prime location, with careful scrutiny of the menus & prices most travelers, visitor, guests, and tourists should be able to find something that fits their tastes and price range.
Visit Niagara’s Outskirts
Niagara Falls is not just all about tourist traps and the Mighty Niagara. Niagara is full of other popular fares. The booming Ontario Wine industry is bigger than ever. There are even special Tours dedicated mainly to visiting these Wine Estates. Niagara on the Lake (NOTL), which is about a 20-minute drive fro Niagara City Centre, is a historical town, with a downtown area that will whisk you way back to the 19th Century, with its eclectic shops and historical Forts of the Civil War.
These are only 5 of the many things to do in Niagara Falls, which is rich in History, Tourism, Culture, Fine Dining and exciting Niagara Attractions you just step away from when visiting this great city of Niagara Falls!
