Spacious Rooms Two Blocks from Niagara Falls
Every night, giant spotlights placed behind the Canadian side of Niagara Falls bathe the cascading water in a rainbow of colors. The sight is arresting as well as romantic—one of the top draws for the honeymooners and vacationers who come through here in droves. Just two blocks away from this site is the Ramada Hotel Niagara Falls Fallsview, set in the heart of the tourist district.
From the recently renovated hotel, you can walk over to the falls or take the WeGo citywide transportation system, which stops right out front and travels to nearby attractions. At night, hop aboard to head over to The Keg Steakhouse & Bar and use your included C$30 dining credit on menu items such as filet mignon and teriyaki sirloin. The view from The Keg is stunning—floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the restaurant, showcasing an unobstructed falls panorama. In one option, you can enjoy drinks at East Side Mario’s, too.
During your trip, stop by Captain Jack’s Pirates Cove (one of this Getaway’s options includes a C$25 gaming credit) to play arcade games and laser tag in one of the largest midways in Niagara Falls; with this option you can also enjoy the interactive games Time Freak and Cannon Blasters.
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, but 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. The 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.
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.
