City life can sometimes be stressful and overwhelming so give yourself a break this summer and take some time to relax in Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls is an amazing city to visit all year round, but it’s undeniable that the city truly shines during the warmer months of the year. The variety of available activities and attractions, coupled with the enjoyable summer weather make Niagara Falls an ideal place to get away for a weekend.
Start your weekend off with a tour of one of the many vineyards that call Niagara home. During the summer they’re open for daily tours, giving you the opportunity to stroll through the beautiful vineyards, growing your appreciation for the wine that is to come. The wineries also host several events all throughout the summer, including BBQs, picnics, outdoor dinners and live music. Niagara’s often calm weather gives you the opportunity to see the wineries in their entirety and experience everything that they have to offer. If you love to enjoy tasty food and wine then make your way to one of the many wineries in the region and explore Niagara’s hidden gem.
The region also offers tons of trails and nature inspired activities that will get you outside and active in no time. Breathtaking scenery is just a step away from the tourist district of Niagara Falls so you can be cycling, hiking or walking the many nearby trails in no time. With thousands of acres of parklands, wilderness and green spaces, Niagara Falls is more than just tourist attractions – the natural side of the city is something that can add many more options to your itinerary.
As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada, Niagara Falls has many festivals and celebrations of all things Canadian taking place during the summer. The choices are plenty, whether you want a music festival, food festival or to celebrate a special holiday, Niagara Falls has got it covered.
Don’t let the fun stop there either! With options like The Journey Behind The Falls and Hornblower Niagara Cruises you can actually get up close to the Falls and experience something that you can’t find anywhere else.
Clifton Hill is of course a must visit on your trip, starting with the Falls Avenue Resort, found at the base of the hill. Home to the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, Adventure City, Casino Niagara, four hotels, the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra, and tons more, it should be considered the ultimate base of operations during your stay.
While there is always a lot to do all year long in Niagara Falls, the summer months are the best time to plan your visit. Walking along the Niagara Parkway with the flowers and foliage in full bloom is a great way to relax and get away from the everyday commotion of life.
