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.

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

Niagara Falls for Mother's Day

And speaking of the Niagara Falls, while it’s opening date for this season is yet to be announced, 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 this year? 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”, “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: 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!
