Niagara Falls Civic Holiday Long Weekend Activities

Civic Holiday

Civic Holiday makes a perfect long weekend getaway to Niagara Falls

Another Civic Holiday long weekend is just around the corner, are you ready for some well deserved extra time off?  Well here in Niagara Falls, we are gearing up along Clifton Hill to accommodate you and your family for a weekend filled with adventures on “The Street of Fun by the Falls.”

Did you know?

The date of the Civic Holiday is historically linked to the abolition of slavery in the British Empire in 1834 but was chosen primarily for its timing: between Canada Day and Labor Day there were no recognizable holidays, one of the longest stretches on the Canadian calendar without a holiday.

What to do this Civic Holiday in Niagara Falls

Now you know why we celebrate the Civic Holiday, so lets get to the good stuff…what to do with your extended weekend away from work?  If you are coming to Niagara Falls to let loose you will not be disappointed, and if you are staying at the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill you are off to a good start because it is only minutes from the most exciting things to do in Niagara Falls.

You can start your day of early at the Dinosaur Adventure Golf which is right across from the hotel, moving onto the world famous Skywheel to get some amazing views of Niagara Falls.  If you start to get a little hungry, Boston Pizza is perfect for the entire family, an easy pick and most people’s favourite is the pizza.
