Have a Cheerful Holiday Season on Clifton Hill


Reading Time:  2 minutes -

The Clifton Hill promenade is a major component of the Niagara Falls Tourism experience. Though most people have always considered Clifton Hill a Summer destination, nothing could be further from the truth. We are 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

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 approximately 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 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!

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.

3. Gifts Galore!

Whether you wish to pick up a unique gift for Christmas at the Canada Trading Company, decorate your tree and household with Christmas ornaments, or create a gift basket of fudge and goodies at the Fudge Factory, 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 Canada Trading Company or the Fudge Factory on Clifton Hill.

4. Dining Options

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 next door we offer the Strike! Rock ‘N Bowl and Games to add 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 plentiful, with something for everyone’s taste buds.

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

5. Make Memories With Family-Bonding Attractions

Clifton Hill is home to attractions meant for the whole family to enjoy. Not only does Clifton Hill offer extended hours over the Christmas Break, but we offer great opportunities for family bonding at attractions, such as the Great Canadian Midway and Wizard’s Golf.

The Great Canadian Midway has over 300 games spread out over 70,000 square feet of fun. From toddlers to adults, the games and interactive experiences vary to suit your entertainment style.

Wizard’s Golf is indoor glow-in-the-dark 18-hole competitive miniature golf. Here you will find extravagant exhibits of wizards, trolls, fairies, castles and dragons. Fun for all ages from the novice to the expert!
