Things to Do
Clifton Hill is a family friendly hot spot in Niagara Falls offering you all the “fun by the falls” you need before and after the Wallenda Walk. Most rides open early around 9am and if you are coming in on Thursday the Niagara SkyWheel will give you the best view of the falls, and an opportunity to find a good area to see the event. Once you have the game plan in order right beside the SkyWheel is the Dino Adventure Land. It is one of the newer attractions to the hill, and has gained a lot of popularity since opening over a year ago. If golf isn’t your thing try out the Great Canadian Midway where you can win tickets to score some great prizes. Did we mention Boston Pizza is attached to the midway too; kids can enjoy even more games while mom and dad get to relax and refuel.
Many tourists take advantage of the Clifton Hill Fun Pass offering a combination of attractions at a discounted price. Included is the newest attraction on the hill the XD Theatre. We are talking 6D technologies taking you on an immersing adventurous ride through the cosmos.
If this is a grown up only getaway a nice meal at Kelsey’s could turn into a hot night at Rumours Nightclub. Their mix of a light show, talented house DJ, and massive dance floor is enough to keep you out well into the early morning hours.
Some people would rather take their family to Marineland for the day. Weather permitting the park will be in full swing ready to entertain you and the kids. As well the Maid of the Mist is extremely popular with tourists.
There is no shortage of shops along Clifton Hill if you need to pick something up for a loved one back home The Canadian Trading Company has a souvenir suiting any ones tastes. If you are looking for something on the sweeter side don’t miss The Fudge Factory, their delectable treats are irresistible. With homemade fudge, and candy apples you may be tempted to want to try everything in the store. You can find some wacky souvenirs to remember your visit at the Fun Factory where you can get wax hands made. It is a really neat process where they dip your hands in coloured wax and it hardens into whatever forms you want.
If you want to do some real shopping a trip down Lundy’s Lane will fill that need. You will find an outlet store for all occasions such as the Canada One Outlet Mall, more info click here. Also down Lundy’s Lane are the West 49 Outlet Store, and The Brandname Shoe Warehouse.
