Things to Do and See
There are literally hundreds of sightseeing options in Niagara Falls. Be it viewing the falls, going to amusement and adventure parks, sampling wine, driving around, shopping or dining there is something for everyone. Instead of arranging group excursions as part of the conference, we are directing you to the resources you can use to plan your stay according to your personal interests. We recommend you schedule an extra day before or after the conference to enjoy all the Niagara Falls has to offer.
Your starting point has to be seeing one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world! Head to the Skylon Tower Observation Deck to see the falls, the Niagara Gorge, the wineries and city skylines. If you want to get up close to the falls to fully experience their size and power take a Hornblower Boat Cruise. To get a bird’s eye view, take a helicopter ride with Niagara Helicopters.
If you are going to make time to see multiple attractions, a great deal we recommend is the Niagara Falls Adventure Pass. This gets you into lots of attractions for one low price: Hornblower Niagara Cruises, Journey Behind the Falls, Whirlpool Aero Car, White Water Walk, Butterfly Conservatory, Floral Showcase, Niagara’s Fury, Two-day WEGO Access, and Two-day Falls Incline Railway.
For those of you who are adventure-minded, zip lining has arrived in Niagara Falls! Experience the WildPlay Niagara Zipline and the Aerial Adventure Course.
Are you bringing your kids with you to the conference? Take them to Great Wolf Lodge for some high energy fun.
For the gamblers among us (we won’t ask who you are), there are two casinos in Niagara Falls. Casino Niagara features two floors of gaming with 1500 slot machines, 45 gaming tables, a comedy club, weekly live Niagara entertainment and four different venues for dining and drinks. Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort has over 100 gaming tables and 3000 slot machines, as well as live entertainment, shopping and dining.
If you are into craft beer, Niagara Brewing Company proudly offers unique beers skilfully made with locally sourced ingredients.
And for the wine lovers, the Niagara Region is home to over fifty vineyards. Check out the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake or the wineries of the Niagara Escarpment and Twenty Valley. Many wineries have restaurants, where they pair their fine wines with regional cuisine, so you can add a nice dinner to your plans.
If you want to get out of Niagara Falls for a nice drive, explore Niagara-on-the-Lake a beautiful town of boutiques, shops and fine dining.
Finally, if you can’t see anything you like in these suggested attractions go to the Niagara Falls Tourist Board website for more ideas. And when you get to the conference, check your conference bag for coupons to the different excursions.
