Come to Niagara Falls for Mother’s Day


Reasons to take Mom to Niagara Falls for Mother’s Day

There is no better place to bring mom than Niagara Falls for Mother’s Day. The long-term weather forecast looks like it’s going to be nothing but sunny skies with a mild temperature of 15c, and with so many beautiful spots to take her, you won’t run short of places to take her in this city. In Canada, Mother’s Day is the third largest greeting card holiday (following Valentine’s Day and Christmas), so it’s a big one to show mom that you care. Here’s just a couple of great spots in Niagara Falls to take her…so grab the camera and get ready to treat her to something special:

The Butterfly Conservatory:

Located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, it’s just 10 minutes north of Niagara Falls. The Butterfly Conservatory features over 2000 tropical butterflies that float freely among exotic blossoms and greenery. The paths wind through a tropical environment including gorgeous waterfalls and colorful scenery. It is a self-guided tour and mom will love the peacefulness and tranquility that the building provides. Adults are $13.50 and Children ages 6-12 are $8.80. Children 5 and under are free!

The Niagara SkyWheel:

This Mother’s Day, treat mom to a 175 foot ride in the sky inside North America’s largest observation wheel, the Niagara SkyWheel! Rated as one of Trip Advisor’s top Niagara Falls attractions, it’s easy to see why as you will be treated to memorable views of Niagara Falls and the entire landscape. It is a world-class ride that features fully enclosed gondolas, each climate-controlled for your comfort. The Niagara SkyWheel is also wheelchair accessible. There is no better way to snap incredible birds-eye photos than aboard this remarkable structure! Adults are only $10.99 and Children ages 3-12 are $6.99. Children 2 and under are free!

Dufferin Islands:

If cost is a factor, Dufferin Islands is a gorgeous park located just minutes from the Horseshoe Falls. It’s the perfect spot to treat mom to a picnic, for children to feed the geese or for a family walk and picture opportunity. The best part? It’s free. It features 10 acres of paradise with several islands connected by bridges and pathways. She will love the scenery, peace and serenity that this hideaway spot will bring.

Take Her to Dinner

Niagara Falls for Mother's Day

If you would rather treat mom to lunch or dinner rather than a picnic, take her to where all the excitement is this Mother’s Day; to Clifton Hill! As the “Street of Fun by the Falls”, we feature several restaurant options. Boston Pizza Clifton Hill has a wide selection of gourmet pizzas to choose from, as well as more than 100 other delicious menu items! Niagara’s only Kelsey’s Restaurant is located right at the peak of Clifton Hill, where you will find an extensive menu to please every palate. The patio is open, complete with live entertainment right through the Summer. Mom can relax, eat good food, while listening to the soothing sounds of our talented Niagara guitarists and their contemporary songs. These two options are situated just minutes from Mom’s favourite Niagara attraction of them all, the wonderous Niagara Falls!

Hornblower Niagara Cruises

And speaking of the Niagara Falls, while it’s not due to open until Mid-May (Victoria Day weekend, depending on Mother Nature), tickets for the Hornblower Niagara Cruises can be purchased in advance online. Is there any better gift to give Mom than letting her be one of the first to ride Niagara’s newest attraction? As Canada’s only Niagara boat tour, it features two 700-passenger, state-of-the-art catamaran boats that will take Mom on an intimate tour that gets her as close as possible to the Niagara Falls. It begins at the Canadian docks at the base of the Great Gorge, past the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and into the very heart of the famous Horseshoe Falls.

Choose online between these tour options: “Voyage to the Falls Cruise”, “Sunset Cocktail Cruise”, “Falls Illumination Cruise”, or the “Falls Fireworks Cruise”. Each cruise is approximately a half hour and will be sure to be a unique and memorable gift for her.

Please contact 905-394-3040 or by email at: info@niagaracruises.com for any inquiries.

All us Mom’s want to spend Mother’s Day with the ones that we love, so there is no better gift than family time. This includes all the fun and excitement that the Clifton Hill Fun Pass  brings, complete with the family friendly savings in the wallet! Enjoy the Niagara SkyWheel, Movieland Wax Museum, Dinosaur Adventure Golf or our all-new Wizard’s Golf, the XD Ride Theater, Ghostblasters Dark Ride and a few bonus tokens to try your luck at the Great Canadian Midway!

You can even custom create your own basket for mom as well — they just ask that you come into the store a few days before Mom’s special day to begin preparing a basket that she will love. Here’s an example of a custom basket:
