Wide variety of activities, accommodations wows travellers in online poll

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – It may be heralded by many as the Honeymoon Capital of the World for the stunning natural beauty and wealth of accommodations that have made Niagara Falls so popular with couples. But Canada’s premier getaway destination is also scoring stellar reviews with families in a major online poll of travellers.

Niagara Falls received a coveted Number 1 ranking as Canada’s top family holiday spot in the recently released 2011 Travellers’ Choice Awards by TripAdvisor – the world’s largest online travel review community.

In addition to the spectacular Falls that have been captivating visitors for over 200 years, the award recognizes Niagara for a wide selection of first-class family-oriented activities, attractions and entertainment it offers millions of visitors year-round.

“Niagara Falls is the perfect place for families to get away, take in some fantastic sights and make memories having fun together,” says Sarah Vazquez, Vice-President for the Falls Avenue Resort, which operates five Niagara Falls Hotels, and many of Niagara’s most popular attractions and dining options.  “There’s so much entertainment variety offered here, it’s easy to understand why the Falls is such as big hit with families.”

Featuring more than 1,200 hotel rooms connected to a 20-acre entertainment complex, the Falls Avenue Resort provides an ideal location for families to enjoy all the great amenities that helped make the destination a number-one holiday hot spot with travellers.
