5 Reasons why Clifton Hill is a MUST this Holiday Season


Reading Time:  3 minutes -

The Clifton Hill promenade is a major component of the Niagara Falls Tourism experience. Though most people have always considered our street a Summer destination, nothing could be further from the truth. We like to think of ourselves as a “year round” destination with many indoor activities to keep you warm and cozy.  Here are 5 reasons why Clifton Hill should be at the top of your mind this Holiday Season.

1. We are open 365 days a year, including the Holidays!

Niagara SkyWheel

We cater to tourism. That said, there are many people who travel when they get their time off of work, with the Christmas Holidays being one of them. It is estimated that Niagara Falls receives an estimated 30 million visitors in a year; with a huge bulk of those travelers wishing to frequent our family fun attractions, restaurants, and shops. This is why the Clifton Hill facilities will stay open 365 days a year. There is no sense in staying at any Niagara Falls hotel without having fun options and things to do!

We offer attractions that will remain open, such as the Niagara SkyWheel, which is climate-controlled and enclosed. The SkyWheel is an “observation wheel”; which basically translates into an essentially bigger and more sophisticated Ferris wheel.

Stay connected with our Clifton Hill Hours of Operation which gets updated as the days go on.

2. Who would have thought? We are romantic too!

Oakes Garden Theatre

You don’t generally think of Clifton Hill as the place to go for romance — but we are! With this year’s Winter Festival of Lights taking place throughout the winter, Clifton Hill is a Winter Wonderland of romantic lights! From the top of Clifton Hill along Victoria Avenue, to the bottom at the Oakes Garden Theatre, we have beautiful Christmas displays creating the perfect picture.

What better way to celebrate romance than with a spark! The Niagara Falls Holiday fireworks display adds just that. They occur every night through the Christmas holidays from: December 20th – January 5th at 9:00 PM!

3. Gifts Galore!

Canada Trading Company

Whether you wish to pick up a unique gift for Christmas at the Canada Trading Company, decorate your tree and household with Christmas ornaments, create a gift basket of fudge and goodies at the Fudge Factory, or purchase Clifton Hill Fun Passes for your loved one as a stocking stuffer, we sell it all on Clifton Hill!

The Canada Trading Company has so many great finds that if you can’t decide, you can always request a gift certificate instead. These gift certificates are made available in $25 increments and can be used at the Fun Factory, Canada Trading Company or the Fudge Factory on Clifton Hill.

4. Dining Options

Boston Pizza Clifton Hill

Both our Boston Pizza Clifton Hill and Kelseys Clifton Hill offer extensive menus that the whole family will enjoy.

Visit Boston Pizza Clifton Hill for a family-fun establishment. The windows and interior are decked out in festive decor, and we bring the arcade to you. There are games that you can play while you wait for your food to be prepared. The adjoining Strike! Rock ‘N Bowl also adds that something extra to your bonding time.

Kelseys Clifton Hill is for the family wishing for a restaurant in a more laid-back and classic setting. The menu is extensive with live entertainment out on our covered patio during the holidays at our peak times.

Both these restaurants are open on and throughout the holiday season!
