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.


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.


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. With Silver Aces Live Entertainment, you can re-live the legends of Rock n’ Roll with live performances every Wednesday and listen to renditions of Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and more. At Casino Niagara, there’s live music every weekend, and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, get ready to laugh your head off with Mark Breslin’s Yuk Yuk’s comedy show.
