Niagara Falls
Travel Guide

Families and honeymooners flock to the Falls for a breathtakingly beautiful - and seriously fun - getaway. 

When it comes to natural beauty, there’s no place like Niagara. Though some travelers skip the scenery in favor of trips to nearby Toronto, tourists who take the time to explore the local sights are rewarded with postcard-worthy views, small-town charms, and an inimitable sense of being away from it all.

What’s more, Niagara Falls travel deals are perfect for both honeymoons and family vacations alike. Lovebirds head downstream for a secluded piece of paradise, kids get their kicks at the Marineland Theme Park, and parents channel their inner Lady Lucks at the local casinos. Anything’s possible with Niagara Falls vacation packages.

Though Niagara Falls getaway deals cover a lot of ground, the Falls themselves are the main attraction. Both Ontario and New York own a piece of the action, but the Canadian side features a major claim to fame: Horseshoe Falls, the largest — and arguably most majestic — of the area’s natural wonders. Take a trip to Table Rock House’s free observation deck for the best views, and then head to the nearby Journey Behind the Falls tunnels for an unforgettable vantage point. Just make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Old Scow; this barge nearly plummeted off Horseshoe’s cliff in 1918, and it remains sandwiched between the rocks to this day.

Of course, Niagara Falls deals offer more than simply water, water everywhere. Clifton Hill features an amusement park and wax museum, and the Skylon Tower is the best spot to peep some beyond gorgeous views. Land-lubbers will adore the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and Butterfly Conservatory, but culture buffs may prefer the Queen Street Arts and Culture District. This decidedly city-centric neighborhood features cool boutiques, must-see art galleries, and several delicious bistros. Plus, if you search for Niagara Falls package deals in the area, you’ll be in a great location to explore the cultural sights and take a few turns on the Niagara Skywheel all in the same day. Talk about a dreamy vacation.
