FARblog3When people make their way to the Niagara Falls region, they do so for a wide variety of reasons. Some come to celebrate an anniversary or honeymoon or to rekindle a romance that has grown stale.

Others are looking to take a break from the stresses of work in a location known for providing visitors with unbelievable sights as well as scores of events and attractions.

Then there are those who want to experience one of North America’s most revered wine destinations. Lastly, there are some who want nothing more than to experience the wonder and majesty of our always-impressive waterfalls.

Within these categories, of course, lie more categories still, and one group of visitors that experiences the area a lot but rarely gets any credit for it is fathers. From the brand-new dad still trying to figure out how to hold his infant to the spry octogenarian boasting 25 grandchildren, Niagara Falls makes a great destination for the dad in your life. Here are three reasons to celebrate this Father’s Day with a trip to Niagara Falls.

The Golf

Yes, it’s a stereotype, but there’s a very good reason the stereotype developed. Namely, a lot of men really do enjoy hitting the links for a game of golf. Especially for men from the Baby Boomer generation, few propositions compare to spending a weekend morning or afternoon tackling 18 holes on a beautiful course. Home to a dozen or more stunning courses, the Niagara region is a perfect getaway for the golf-loving dad in your life. Here are just a handful of some of the finest courses that are open to the public:

  • Legends on the Niagara
  • Whirlpool Golf Course
  • Thundering Waters Golf Course
  • Beechwood Golf & Country Club

FARblog4The Weather

June is often a pleasant month in many places across North America, but Niagara Falls’ June weather is lovely enough to win a beauty pageant and take home the prize. Temperatures range from highs in the mid-60s to the occasional low-80s, and nightfall brings with it cooling breezes that rarely drop the temperature below the mid-40s so you’ll be comfortable just donning a sweatshirt. The spring rains have mostly passed, and the storms that do roll in are brief. For an early summer vacation where you’ll hardly ever face an uncomfortable moment related to how the air feels, June in Niagara Falls can’t be topped.

The Food, Wine, and Beer

Eating and drinking are two vacation favorites no matter who you are, and in Niagara, we do both remarkably well. A new crop of craft breweries is reaching the standards set by our world-renowned wineries, so whether you and your dad love wine or beer, you can find excellent examples of both all across the Peninsula.

And the food is second-to-none as well. The Niagara region’s farm-to-table movement has resulted in a wide variety of restaurants that serve excellent food sourced right from their own backyards. Whether you love grass-fed steak, Italian cuisine with a contemporary twist, or fresh-caught fish, you’ll eat like kings at every turn.

Spend Father’s Day in Niagara Falls. As these three reasons show, celebrating your dad — or yourself — isn’t just easy to do here; it’s incredibly fun as well.
