Whether before or after, Niagara Falls Christmas Holidays is a magical time of year for travel!
Comfort Inn Clifton Hill… making this holiday a special time for you and your family.
Niagara Falls Christmas Holidays is a truly amazing time of the year. This is a city that specifically caters to tourists, since an estimated 12 million people visit per year. Yes, the majority travel during the Summer, but when the Winter hits and the temperatures plummet, so does the cost to stay here. There is always something to explore on Clifton Hill. This vibrant stretch of entertainment, dining and attractions offers something to do for the whole family to enjoy. There are wax museums, “haunted houses”, the Great Canadian Midway and the Niagara Skywheel to explore, plus so much more! Hours of operation are consistent during the Niagara Falls Christmas Holidays, and the attractions remain open even on Christmas Day (and all other holidays!). There are deals aplenty, with the Clifton Hill Fun Pass being an unbeatable option of 50% off of some of Clifton Hill’s most popular attractions. If you prefer to pay as you go, there are coupons and discounts offered online via clicking here for a few family fun activities and dining options located on the “Street of Fun by the Falls”.
You can also score big when you stay at the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill when you Build Your Own Package when booking your room online. There are plenty of options to choose from that cater specifically to your individual desires — whether it be for young families looking for fun adventure, or couples simply looking for a romantic getaway…there is a package for you! Booking online is easy and when you do, remember to use our Build a Custom Package link. There you can attach great deals to many attractions directly to your reservation.
There’s some great shopping to take advantage of before the big man in the red suit slides down a chimney or the menorah’s final candle is lit. There’s an incredible selection of unique and timeless gifts at the Canada Trading Company. For gifts a little more out there and fun, the Fun Factory is just the place. And if you’re in to pleasing someone’s sweet tooth, the Fudge Factory fits the bill. The cool thing about shopping on Clifton Hill, is that you’ll find gifts that you’ll just never find at the mall. If you’re looking for those great brand name gifts at less than a brand name price tag, Canada One Factory Outlets – just a short drive up Lundy’s Lane – has 40 stores over-flowing with great holiday deals. Coincidently, the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill also offers a discounted card for this location as one of the Build Your Own Package options. Click here to see how you can save up to 20% for FREE!
Great gifts and great value aside, the best thing about a pre-holiday vacation to the Falls is getting a chance to kick back and relax – and still get your holiday shopping done. After the stores and some sight-seeing, just pull up a lounge chair or slip into the whirlpool at the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill indoor pool. There’s nothing more soothing during the hectic holiday rush.
Of course, kids love the holiday rush. They rush out the school doors for an extended break. They rush to the tree on the big day. They rush for things to do during their break. Making your way to the Falls for a couple of days is a great way to spend some quality holiday time with the kids without the rush. Tons of attractions to explore and most just a stone’s throw from our front door at Comfort Inn Clifton Hill.
New Years Eve is also just around the corner, and the party this year is really going to be insane! Over at the Niagara Park Commission’s beautiful Queen Victoria Park, the Sam Roberts band, Serena Ryder and Demi Lovato headline what will be guaranteed to be an amazing free concert.
And if the music doesn’t provide enough fireworks, there will be TWO showings of the real thing in a spectacular fireworks display at 9:00pm and Midnight. Be sure to arrive early to find the ideal spot to set up and avoid the crowds!
