Niagara Falls region Holidays

Whether you're looking for big and bold or quaint and quiet, you'll find it in Niagara. From the bone-rattling power and mist-cloaked majesty of the Niagara Falls to the Victorian-era charm of Niagara-on-the-Lake and unparalleled scenery of the surrounding countryside, this region is filled with notable pleasures.

The Horseshoe Falls of Niagara are incredible in every way and there are plenty of ways to get up close! There's the legendary boat cruise that takes you to the heart of the Falls where you'll feel the mist on your cheeks and enjoy unique vistas; soar high above on a helicopter and take in breathtaking views of the turbulent rapids and thundering waterfalls; head underground to spectacular observation decks at the foot of the Falls and hear nature at its most ferocious. Alternatively, head to the Skylon Tower for 360 degree views 775 feet above the Falls or hop on the Clifton Hill Skywheel, Canada's largest observation wheel, for magnificent aerial views.

Aside from the Falls, Niagara has plenty more to offer. The Niagara Fallsview Casino is a world class resort where you can try your luck in the massive gaming area or perhaps catch a show. Explore Clifton Hill, with its wax museums, arcades, themed restaurants and more; encounter over 400 exotic birds and other critters at Bird Kingdom; or for great shopping deals, head to the Canada One Factory Outlets.

The Heritage District in picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake is made for walking, with its boutique shops, cast-iron planters bursting with flowers, and horse-drawn carriages transporting riders to another time and place.

Beyond the town, the countryside is dotted with sun-drenched vineyards serving as enticing invitations to some of Canada's best wineries. Savour an award-winning wine, then enjoy an unforgettable meal at one of the region's renowned restaurants, or perhaps sit back and enjoy a production at the Shaw Festival Theatre, one of the top repertory companies in the world.
