The sun is still shining, the air is crisp and comforting, and the trees are starting to turn brilliant shades of orange, yellow, brown, and red. Let’s examine all the reasons to fall in love with Niagara’s autumn..
1. Explore the Trails
Explore the stunning trails in Niagara by putting on your hiking boots or by bringing a bike. Bring a camera and see why Niagara’s undeniable beauty is cherished by visitors from all over the world. The 6-kilometer Niagara Parkway travels from the Niagara Gorge to the Floral Clock. Beginning with Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the 56-kilometer Niagara River Parkway Recreation Trail follows the Niagara River in a natural paradise.
2. Corn Mazes
Wander off! Bring the kids, or act like a child once more as you chase one another over the high stalks. Amazing corn mazes are available every year at Howells Pumpkin Farm, Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm. The entire month of October, they are open every day.
With the football season in full swing, it’s the most exciting time of the year! For wings, pizza, and beer, Boston Pizza Clifton Hill is one of the hottest sports bars in the tourist area. It is also close to Queen Victoria Park, where you can enjoy the stunning fall foliage and see the American and Horseshoe Falls.
4. Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
At Tim Hortons, Canada’s favourite coffee shop, autumn means everything Pumpkin Spice. There isn’t a better way to spend a fall day than to grab a hot beverage and travel to Niagara Falls to take pictures.
For your convenience, we have one of the closest Tim Hortons, which is situated on Clifton Hill and is only steps away from this amazing wonder of the world.
5. Niagara Harvest
Throughout the season in Niagara, you can pick fruits and vegetables at a local farm or orchard. There is also a handful of award-winning vineyards around the region that offer the greatest fall tastes!
Check out all the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
6. Fall Flavours
Fall flavours are everywhere right now! The Fudge Factory has a lot in store for you (see our list here). At the Canada Trading Company, we also offer everything you need to enhance your own maple-flavored Fall feast.
7. Less crowds
Fall in Niagara Falls is a terrific time to come since there are less visitors and most attractions on Clifton Hill are still operating. The Niagara SkyWheel is heated for your comfort, and the Niagara Speedway is still open as long as the weather permits. The best part? You have few to no line-ups to deal with.
8. Cheaper Hotel Rates
Hotel prices in Niagara Falls decrease considerably after Labor Day and will continue to fall as the season progresses (with the exception of Holiday weekends). Even on weekends, rates are often half of what they would be on a weekday in the summer.
