Family-Friendly Resort with Indoor Water Park Minutes from Niagara Falls
Although retractable roofs are usually associated with sports stadiums, the designers of Americana Resort and Waves Indoor Waterpark have used the technology to perfect the water-park experience. At the onsite Waves Indoor Waterpark, the retractable roof lets in the sun on warmer days and keeps the park at a pleasant 84 degrees in the winter. Even with the spectacular Horseshoe Falls just a 10-minute drive away, the water park's thrilling three-story tube and body slides make it awfully hard to leave the resort. Visitors can make their way from gushing fountains to heated whirlpools scattered throughout the 25,000-square-foot facility.
Superior rooms feature two queen beds, providing enough space to accommodate a family of four or a group of traveling All in the Family reenactors. At mealtime, you can use your included C$20 dinner credit and C$10 breakfast credit at the onsite Jack Tanner's, where chefs prepare wild-salmon fillets and sugar-cane skewers of sirloin steak and shrimp. Though the food is worthy of a ritzy restaurant, Jack Tanner’s maintains a casual atmosphere. TVs are attached to every booth, and an outdoor patio is lined with potted flowers.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Awe-Inspiring Waterfalls Surrounded by Casinos
With its glitzy casinos, neon signs, and soggy Elvis impersonators, Niagara Falls has a fair amount of Vegas-style kitsch. But the waterfalls still present a magnificent spectacle as they send more than 700,000 gallons of water barreling into the Niagara River every second. Niagara’s Canadian side offers the best views of Horseshoe Falls, and it's the launching point for the popular Maid of the Mist boat rides, which have sailed into the falls' tumultuous basin since 1876. A network of tunnels provides an up-close perspective behind the falls. For an entirely different viewpoint, take an elevator to the top of the 775-foot Skylon Tower, where you can see as far as Toronto on a clear day.
