Hotel at a Glance: Days Inn at the Falls
Days Inn at the Falls lies in the heart of the entertainment district on the American side of Niagara Falls, right across the street from America's oldest state park. It's a couple of blocks from the Rainbow Bridge, which links the American side of the falls to the Canadian side. Visitors can easily walk or drive across the bridge to visit Horseshoe Falls and the Falls Avenue Resort, a sprawling complex with an indoor water park, 12 restaurants, and a casino.

- Try your luck: This getaway includes two $30 vouchers (limit one per day) that you can use toward the slots at Seneca Niagara Casino.
- Lots of dining options: There's a Denny's inside the hotel, and many more restaurants are within a short walk.
- Good for kids: indoor pool and video games in the lobby
Highlights of Niagara Falls, New York
- For an up-close encounter with the Falls: You can book a ride aboard the Maid of the Mist, a tour boat that has shuttled sightseeing guests to the base of the thundering Horseshoe Falls since 1846.
- Local nickname: "Honeymoon Capital of the World.” After Napoleon Bonaparte’s younger brother honeymooned in the area with his American bride, scores of newlyweds followed in their footsteps, earning the nickname.
- Historic attraction: The free Daredevil Museum of Niagara Falls commemorates the history of the falls' thrill seekers with photos and memorabilia, including contraptions that people have ridden over the falls.
- Outdoor activity: Head to the 400-acre Niagara Falls State Park, the first of its kind in the country, which sits directly on the border between Canada and the United States. Miles of hiking trails wend through the scenic park.
- For a rainy day: There’s also plenty to do indoors around Niagara Falls. The area has remained a family-friendly destination, with indoor water parks, an aquarium, arcades, and casinos for the 21-and-older crowd.
