12 Mar Planning Your Perfect Niagara Falls Family Holiday
A visit to the Niagara Falls is on many people´s bucket list. This is understandable; after all, they are a truly beautiful sight. Their majesty really is something to behold. But, it is really important to plan your trip carefully and well in advance. The best accommodation, like the Niagara Falls hotel, books up fast. Their special deal packages often sell out within days of becoming available.
Book some of the attractions and tours in advance
Before you go, it is important to work out what attractions you want to see. Doing so will ensure that you do not miss anything and give you the chance to buy your tickets in advance. It also opens up the opportunity for you to save money. Typically, you get a good discount if you buy multi-entrance passes. Plus, you usually do not have to queue to get in, which means you can pack more into your day.
OK, so that covers why it is wise to book in advance. Here are some attraction details to help you to work out where to go and what to see.
This 4D experience is an amazing introduction to the mighty and majestic Niagara Falls. It takes place in a 360-degree multi-sensory theater, which is an experience in its own right. During the show, you get to experience the waterfalls and its history from a variety of viewpoints.
Journey Behind the Falls
However, Niagara´s Fury is just an introduction to the power of the Niagara Falls. If you take the Journey Behind the Falls you are going to be able to get really close to the base of the waterfalls. Plus, the kids get to take an elevator down into a cave system, which you trek through to get to the fall-side walkway. Very, Batmanesque, and again a rare experience you are not likely to repeat in your lifetime.
Get a view of the Falls from above
Getting a bird´s eye view of the Niagara Falls really gives you an understanding of just how grand they are. There are lots of ways to do this. Amongst the best are the Skylon tower, enjoying a Fallsview meal from one of the multi-story hotels is also memorable.
The butterfly conservatory
After all that excitement, it is nice to visit the butterfly conservatory and just chill. It really is a wondrous place to get close to nature and recharge everyone´s batteries.
Visit one of the ride parks
If you are looking for a way for your children to burn a bit of energy there are several pleasure parks to enjoy in the area. Clifton Hill is a particularly good one. Visitors to the park particularly enjoy the Wild West Coaster 6D Theatre ride.
Getting around all of the attractions is really easy when you use the WEGO transport network. It is specifically designed for tourists, so takes in all of the important attractions.
Tap into vouchers and coupons
Once you know which attractions you want to visit and which tours you want to enjoy it makes sense to see if you can save even some money. There are plenty of websites, like this one, that point you towards special packages and discounts.
