In its list of the world’s 10 most spectacular waterfalls, Travel + Leisure praised the Canadian side of Niagara Falls (which came in at No. 5) for its casinos, cable cars, and “overall superior views.” Located within walking distance of the falls, Best Western Fallsview Hotel gives guests easy access to the natural wonder. The family-friendly hotel also sits across from a world-class casino and an IMAX theater and features attractions of its own, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Race against the clock while playing the Time Freak and Cannon Blasters games at Captain Jack's Pirates Cove; select options include admission and a gaming voucher.
Couples escape: Choose the dine-and-wine package for a winery tour and chocolate tasting for two.
In-room amenities: Newly renovated guest rooms feature 32-inch flat-screen TVs and private balconies or patios.
Highlights of Niagara Falls, Ontario
How far does it fall? Water thunders downward from a height of nearly 200 feet, crashing onto craggy boulders below.
The best views: The Canadian side of the Niagara River is universally hailed as the finest vantage point to take in all three of Niagara Falls’ photogenic brinks: American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls.
Take a ride: The Hornblower ferries raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls from April through October, depending on the river’s ice conditions.
A different perspective of the falls: Year-round, Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls—board an elevator that descends 150 feet into the bedrock, then stand at an observation deck steps away from the cascading water.
Outside of the falls: A 10-minute walk from the falls, you’ll see the neon glow of the Clifton Hill neighborhood. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
