Where to stay in Niagara Falls

Exploring Niagara Falls

Famous as the romantic honeymoon capital of the world, Niagara Falls is one of the world’s most visited natural wonders. The city of Niagara Falls sees millions of tourists every year, all heading for the astonishing spectacle of untold tons of water crashing over the rocky edges to the continuation of the Niagara River far below. As a result, the city offers world-class hotels and visitor amenities, including spectacular tours behinds the roaring curtain of water, boat trips to the foot of the cascade, and more. In town, you’ll find casinos, buzzing nightlife, fine dining, family-friendly hotels with water parks, and high-end as well as budget accommodation.

The most famous of the three cascades, Horseshoe Falls, lies in Canada, and visitors staying on the Canadian side have glorious views of all three waterfalls. In addition, the region is known for its wineries, Lake Erie beaches, and fruit-growing acres. Getting around is by shuttle bus, the WEGO local bus system, hop-on/hop-off tour buses, or taxi, and the heart of the city, with its pretty parks, is easily explored on foot. Families will love the Niagara Skywheel, the Butterfly Conservatory, the Marineland Theme Park, and the many other attractions aimed at young visitors.

Sights nearby

Of course, the falls themselves are the main draw here, illuminated at night and equally spectacular by day. As a world-famous tourist hub, the city has a huge number of other attractions, as well as a choice of ways to get close to the cascades, including breathtaking helicopter trips as well as the traditional boat trips resulting in a soaking for all on board.

Horseshoe Falls
The experience of a lifetime is provided via Maid of the Mist boat tours to the foot of the falls and the Journey Behind the Falls tour allows a sight of the thundering waters through portholes in the rocks. The White Water Walk is a boardwalk next to the rapids, and there’s a cable car running over the massive whirlpool. For the best sight of all, helicopter tours are offered by several companies.

Marineland Theme Park
Offering a great day out for families, this theme park combines popular high-adrenaline rides with unique marine mammals and fish, including killer and beluga whales, sea lions, dolphins, and walruses. Several of the rides are tall enough to give views of the falls as an added bonus.

Clifton Hill Amusement Area
This hilly street is packed with fun things to do for visitors of all ages, with favourites such as wax museums, haunted houses, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not stacked alongside gift and souvenir stores, and popular eateries.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

International cuisine, as well as Canadian and American favourites, is everywhere here, with the most popular restaurants placed with views of the falls, their night-time illuminations, and summer weekend fireworks displays. From grills, pub grub, and family-style eateries, to fine dining in high-end hotels, there’s an amazing selection of Asian, Indian, Caribbean, Mexican, and European cuisines at prices to suit all wallets.

The delicious local wines are served, and are perfect accompaniments to a romantic meal overlooking the falls, and fast-food joints are found all over town for lunch on the run. Souvenir outlets are best in the Clifton Hills district, and there’s a shopping mall in the central city square. For bargain designer fashions, Canada One Factory Outlet is the place to go.
