Enjoy one of Canada's most iconic attractions
Holidays to Niagara Falls are very popular and sure to excite anyone young or old. The Niagara area straddles the Canadian US border with the more famous of the falls (the Horseshoe Falls) located on the Canadian side. Canada’s Horseshoe Falls are a candidate for one of the seven natural wonders of North America, and possibly also the world.
Niagara Falls Canada is one of the most visited natural attractions in the world with around 14 million visitors each year. And there’s good reason for it. The falls are spectacular and truly unforgettable. A walk along the main Queen Victoria Park walkway looking down over the falls is highly memorable and, if you have someone to share it with, can be very romantic. Niagara Falls has been called the “honeymoon capital” and is considered a top romantic destination for many worldwide. Many a proposal has taken place on the walkway of Queen Victoria Park with the falls as a perfect backdrop. If you’re a bit more adventurous, tours can take you right into the action of the Horseshoe Falls, leading you right into the spray area and getting you up close and personal with the spectacular flow of water that is quite literally changing the landscape as we speak (the falls are eroding the landscape and moving backward!). Equally, tours behind the falls give you a spectacular view of the dramatic sheets of falling water from beneath and behind the falls.
A holiday in Niagara Falls features spectacular views of one of the world’s favourite waterfalls, plus numerous opportunities for entertainment and play in the city’s various arcades, theatres, museums, and art galleries. There is also a bird sanctuary with over 300 birds, and a zoo. The nearby surrounding areas are home to great vineyards hosting wine tours and tastings, quaint towns and picturesque golf courses. Niagara also has a strong arts and culture district located just north of the falls with great local theatre, arts, live music and unique shopping opportunities.
Niagara Falls holidays offer romantic getaways, amazing views of one of the world’s natural treasures, and rich cultural heritage creating a foundation of discovery, adventure, and romance.
