Spend a One-of-a-kind Thanksgiving Weekend In Niagara
NIAGARA FALLS, ON There is much to be thankful for in Niagara Falls. Finally, the hot muggy days and large summer crowds have been replaced with crisp sweater-weather, vivid sunsets and spectacular autumn colours.
Thanksgiving is the perfect Niagara weekend! Visitors can still enjoy all their favourite area sites and attractions, without the crowds.
Whether you prefer to stroll through one of Niagara’s colourful parks … enjoy the dazzle and excitement of Clifton Hill, or take in the natural wonder of the Horseshoe and American Falls, you won’t be disappointed.
Niagara’s countryside is bursting with colour … with niagara fruit farmers harvesting what promises to be a bountiful crop … the morning grass is glistening with dew … and the air is full of a fruity freshness.
Not to mention, there is a ton of things to do!
Attraction seekers can still get the “Clifton Hill FUN PASS” – which gets you into FIVE of Niagara’s most popular attractions: The 175-foot tall Niagara SkyWheel, Movieland Wax Museum, Ghost Blaster Dark Ride, XD Theater, and Dinosaur Adventure or Galaxy Golf. Click here
