#2. Walk the Strip!
Las Vegas is known for its vibrant cityscape with dramatic architecture and lights. Just like Vegas, Niagara Falls has its own dazzling street of fun — Clifton Hill! It’s constantly modernizing itself with new attractions, bigger and better newly renovated restaurants such at Kelsey’s Original Roadhouse (with one of Niagara’s biggest patio’s featuring live entertainment), and entertainment offerings on the Strip. Just like in Las Vegas, Clifton Hill even has its own Elvis Impersonator that sits in the Niagara SkyWheel Courtyard entirely wrapped in gold for photo opportunities! Light shows? Yes! At the bottom of Clifton Hill is Queen Victoria Park where everyone waits for the Niagara Falls firework shows every Friday, Wednesday, Sunday, and Holiday throughout the Summer. Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps, and Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls attractions close late in the Winter, and in the wee hours of the morning in the Summer, making it Niagara’s favourite party destination.
Niagara Falls illuminations happen daily 365 days a year!
#3. Gamble the Night Away and take in a Concert!
We have two casinos in Niagara Falls! Just like in Las Vegas, our casinos never close!

#4. Las Vegas has the “High Roller” Wheel, we have the “Niagara SkyWheel”
Both strips have spectacular observation wheels to view the lit up and dazzling lights. Las Vegas has the world’s tallest wheel at 55o feet (167 metres) high. It holds 28 40-passenger capsules in a glass-lined and temperature-controlled gondola. Niagara Falls has Canada’s largest observation wheel at 175 feet tall (53 metres). Considerably smaller than the High Roller, but majestic in its own right, the Niagara SkyWheel features panoramic views of the entire Niagara skyline including a bird’s-eye view of the incredible Canadian Horseshoe Falls. It too is climate-controlled with two wheelchair accessible gondolas. Each capsule fits 6-8 people.
