Niagara Falls

Where white explodes with colors

The water, ice, snow and sky of Niagara Falls, Ontario, adorn themselves with colors and lights in wintertime.  Already grandiose in summertime, the site is nothing less than sublime in winter.  It’s the perfect low-budget family escape!

The main attraction is, of course, the waterfall, worth seeing at least once in a lifetime. It is even more stunning when illuminated by the rainbow of colors provided by fireworks that burst fourth every night at nine during the Niagara Falls Festival of Lights between November 5 and February 29.

The best lookouts

The show is a masterpiece whether you are just standing there watching or sporting skates on the vast TD at the Brink skating rink, where the ice is refrigerated from December 1st to February 29 to provide fans of the graceful and romantic sport with a perfect experience.  No excuses: skates can be rented and skating courses are even offered.

Guided tours will teach you everything there is to know about the famous Horseshoe Falls, Niagara Parkway, the Dufferin Islands and Victoria Park, all very popular activities.

And for the best lookouts, visit the summit of the Skylon Tower, the Ferris wheel or go on board a helicopter!

Hearty competition

The whole town of Niagara takes part in the celebration of colors to the great enjoyment of everyone: residents and businesses try to outdo each other’s inventiveness and grandeur to win an illumination contest. It’s one of the most popular activities at the Winter Festival of Lights… to our great delight!

A basket full of fun and fanciful activities

Kids will love the Disney Enchantment attraction park, especially during the Festival, when they can meet the mascots, Chilly Dog, Cool Cat, Crystal Bunny, Flury and Flake at every event.

Bird Kingdom is perfect for warming up for a few hours: 400 exotic birds fly freely over your head and may decide to land on your shoulder or even dare to come eat out of your hand.

Speaking of a kingdom, why not spend an evening in fancy dress and relive one of Henry VIII’s feasts?  It guarantees funny pictures!

Ripley’s Great Wolf Lodge

The whole family will be delighted to attend a talking animal show, listen to stories, enjoy the large indoor aquatic park and above all spend the night at Ripley’s Great Wolf Lodge.

Parents should, however, be prepared for their kids to want to go to bed late, as they will have such a good time in their own log cabin which is part of the large family suite.  At least parents can relax in their private Jacuzzi until the noise dies down!

The Diplomat Inn Fallsview Hotel offers more reasonable rates, between $39 and $69 for the night, which includes access to the inside pool, always very popular with kids.

Let’s go!  Put some color into your Canadian winter!
