7 Ways To Escape The Everyday In Niagara Falls

No Comments

From the Chicagoist:

Niagara Falls is the meeting point of the Canadian and American borders, where two countries collide in the form of a spectacular natural wonder. Almost as spectacular as the thundering water is the excitement, food, and adventure found on the Canadian side of the line.

A trip to Niagara Falls is more than a simple weekend getaway; it’s a way to escape the ordinary and discover Canada’s wild side at its finest. Experience the wonderment of the Falls while embarking on a culinary journey, take a thrilling zipline ride across the river, or simply stand on the Canadian side of the border and wave across the Falls at your American friends while enjoying that sweet, low Canadian dollar.

The unofficial start of Summer 2017

As you are probably aware, the two May holiday weekends (Victoria Day weekend in Canada, Memorial Day weekend in the US) marks the unofficial start of the summer tourists season here in Niagara Falls. I haven’t heard or read anything specific about what sort of business levels people are expecting this year, but I would definitely assume that people will continue to flock to Niagara Falls.

  • The zipline will have a full summer in operation
  • The Big Top attraction on Clifton Hill will open
  • The new developments by Kelsey’s will open (Niagara Speedway, Funnel Cakes, etc)
  • The Canadian dollar is weaker, so more Americans should be coming

Here’s hoping it is a great year for everyone!
