Devour Yummy Treats With Your Family

A visit to the Fudge Factory is a must while you’re in town. Aside from the deliciousness of freshly baked goods, watching the Candy Cooks in action gives the entire family the feeling of being a part of the process. It’s a good idea to sample the fudge so you can decide on your favourite delightful dessert.

Convenient Parking for More Family Time

It’s important to find a good parking spot, especially when you’re carrying strollers, jackets, baby bags, and retail items. With approximately 700 parking spaces, the Clifton Hill’s main parking lot is conveniently located near restaurants, shops, games, and rides. Everything is close proximity to each other and short walking distances for maximum convenience.

Eat A Nice Meal With Your Family

It can be exhausting cooking for a family with different food tastes, especially if one child just refuses to eat certain items. So perhaps It’s time to let someone else do the cooking and cleaning so you can enjoy your Family Day weekend as much as the kids.

KELSEYS and Boston Pizza, two family-friendly eateries, are positioned at the top and in the heart of Clifton Hill. You’ll find something to fill every tummy on the menu, from plain spaghetti to chicken fingers for the youngsters, and dozens of gourmet selections for the grown-ups.

Family Friendly Competition

Family bonding sessions are an excellent approach to foster family unity. You can use your time at the Great Canadian Midway to connect with the kids while also being a active listener. While everyone is gathered around the arcade playing games, redirect your attention to the children and ask them how they are doing, how their friends are, what’s going on at school, and so on. Allow your children to enjoy the games that you enjoyed as a child, and get them to teach you how to play newer games — the Midway has games that appeal to all generations.

Family Fun Photo Opportunities

Clifton Hill is a photographer’s dream. From the Skywheel, take a selfie with your family while admiring the scenery of Niagara Falls. Go on a photo safari all over the Hill to find the best photo opportunities and capture a few for social media or a photo book. There are plenty of places to make your own memories on the Hill.

About Family Day

Family Day is held on the third Monday in February every year. Generally speaking, most working individuals will get the day off with pay enabling them to spend quality time with their family and loved ones. It will also give employees a day off between New Year’s Day and Easter, which is a long stretch of time in which people need rest.
