Things to do near Clifton Hill

June 6, 2013 9:00 am

If one thing is certain, there is never a shortage of fun things to do while you’re at Clifton Hill. From tasty treats to sitting back and being entertained, there’s always something fun going on in Niagara Falls.

Rainforest Cafe

If you’ve never been to the Rainforest Cafe, now is your chance. The Rainforest Cafe, situated on the corner of Falls Avenue and Clifton Hill, is an experience you’ll never forget. Meet the Rainforest’s family of gorillas, elephants and snakes while you enjoy an easy-to-please menu with tex-mex style dishes. But beware – every 30 minutes the canopy lights up, lightning sparks and rain pours down the Rainforest’s indoor walls.

Always Refreshing Soda Shop

Sure, watching everyone have fun on Clifton Hill often leaves us longing for the good ol’ days. Luckily, the Always Refreshing Soda Shop serves ol’fashioned floats, milkshakes, ice cream and soda with a variety of flavour shots, just like the 1950s. Be prepared to be refreshed, and travel back in time where the smiles were cheap and fun was free.

Hershey’s Chocolate World

Craving sweets, chocolate and heavenly treats? Welcome to the Hershey Store where you will be delighted by chocolate and fresh cookies, or milkshakes topped with whipped cream and the Hershey’s signature kiss. Bring home a five pound chocolate bar, or some deliciously scented candles like York’s Peppermint Patty or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Adventure City

Did you say arcade? Adventure City has so much in store from classic arcade-style games, Guitar Hero, Dance, Dance Revolution as well as interactive rides like the Tour Bus Swat Team where you’ll overcome the bad guys to protect the city. In a rush? Get road-raged with Traffic Slam Bumper Cars, and explore the jungle with the Jungle Friends Fun House. Still not convinced? Then you’ll have to try the glow-in-the-dark Safari Mini-Putt.

4D Movies

Ever experienced a movie 3D? How about 4D? The Iwerks 4D Moving Theatre provides the ultimate experience in movie-watching with its simulator style stadium seating, 3D moving technology as well as water jets and air blasters to provide the ultimate experience. Now you can visit the bottom of the ocean with SpongeBob SquarePants, or take a trip to Antarctica to meet Penguins with Happy Feet’s 4D experience.

Five amazing reasons to visit Niagara

May 30, 2013 9:09 am

There are so many reasons to visit Niagara Falls, Ontario this summer. Whether you’re a travelling family, coming as a couple, tour group, or visiting Niagara Falls solo, there is always something to keep you and the crew entertained.

Niagara Falls

The view of Niagara Falls from the Canadian side of the border is unbeatable. There is so much to do from splashing around at the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, being looked after head to toe at the Christienne Fallsview Spa, or indulging at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra while eating flavourful foods paired with local wines, all while watching immaculate views of the falls at sundown.

Clifton Hill

Located on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, Clifton Hill has entertainment, food and fun for everyone. Clifton hill is only minutes away from the renowned Marineland Canada, The Butterfly Conservatory, and The Botanical Gardens.

Niagara-on-the-Lake

The beautiful town of Niagara-on-the-Lake brings with it historic charm that certainly amazes even the toughest of critics. The clean, beautiful and unique town has plenty to offer, and is just minutes from the falls. If you’re looking for live entertainment, considering visiting the Shaw Festival to watch a theatrical performance by Canada’s most talented actors.

Wineries

The Niagara region is home to some of the best wineries in Canada. The Niagara escarpment, along with the region’s rich and fertile soil, provides ideal conditions for growing unique grape varieties. Whether you decide to taste-test wines in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Beamsville, Vineland, Jordan or St. Catharines, you will be astonished with the vibrant flavours of Ontario wines.

Casino Niagara

At Casino Niagara, every day is the weekend.
