AAA Four Diamond Marriott Overlooking Niagara Falls
As many as eight million visitors a year come to Niagara Falls—the water is a sight to behold. The AAA Four Diamond-winning Marriott Gateway on the Falls has gorgeous views of this natural wonder from Milestones Grill + Bar, which has some of the best vistas in town. The Marriott takes full advantage of its proximity to the water wherever possible—there are 32 stories of picture windows, for example. Falls-view rooms provide close-up peeks of the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls; city-view rooms face the town.
As part of this deal, you’ll enjoy exclusive tastings, tours, and ice wine cocktails at Peller Estates Winery, Trius Winery, and Thirty Bench Wine Makers. Family-owned Peller Estates carries on the traditions of its Hungarian-born founder and is known for a signature ice wine. Trius boasts an award-winning winemaking team that pride themselves on their "hands-on" style, and Thirty Bench produces rare rieslings and classic red varietals. Groupon customers will also be treated to a sample of chocolates and a hand-picked cabernet franc.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Panoramic Views of the Falls near Vegas-Style Casinos and Water Parks
At Niagara Falls—considered by many to be one of the world’s seven natural wonders—water thunders downward from a height of nearly 200 feet, crashing onto craggy boulders below. The falls straddle the border between Canada and the United States, with segments located in both New York and Ontario. 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.
The iconic Maid of the Mist has ferried raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls since 1846. Tours run from April through October, depending on the river's ice conditions. 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. For a night on the town, guests look no further than the Fallsview Boulevard area, which features some of Canada's largest casinos with gaming floors, fantastic shopping, elegant dining, and live entertainment.
