5 Reasons why Clifton Hill is a MUST this Holiday Season

Reading Time:  4 minutes -

The Clifton Hill promenade is a major component of the Niagara Falls Tourism experience. Though people have always considered the Hill as just 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.  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 Holiday’s

We cater to tourism. That said, there are many people who travel when they get their time off of work — Christmas Holidays being one of them. It is estimated that the Niagara Falls receives an estimated 30 million visitors in a year; with a huge bulk of those travelers that wish to frequent 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, and not open to the elements like the traditional ferris wheels. The SkyWheel is actually 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!

Christmas Markets and Christmas Shows In Niagara

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, Clifton Hill has beautiful Christmas displays for the perfect picture.

The Oakes Garden Theatre has always been the place to go for the perfect engagement or wedding photo. It is a quiet, romantic, and serene location on Clifton Hill/Niagara Parkway for an ideal photo opportunity.

What better way to celebrate a spark flying romance than with the Niagara Falls Holiday fireworks display! They occur every night through the Christmas holidays from: December 22nd – 30th at 9 PM!

3. Gifts Galore!

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 that are made available in $25 increments can be used at any the Fun Factory, Canada Trading Company or Fudge Factory on Clifton Hill.
