Niagara Falls hosts visitors from around the world, so you can expect that its amenities are world-class. Casino Niagara boasts 2 floors of top-notch gaming along with weekly entertainment, a comedy club, and four food and drink venues.

If that isn’t enough, Fallsview Casino Resort is widely considered one of Canada’s premier live entertainment destinations. It includes a luxury hotel and spa, along with plenty of dining and shopping options, and two live performance theatres (the new 5000 seat theatre opens in April). Impressive to say the least!

Not to be forgotten, one of the coolest experiences at any time of year in Niagara Falls is the nightly Falls Illumination. This awe-inspiring light show is even more spectacular in the winter with an icy landscape.

Casual Fun


Niagara Falls is a fantastic place to take a load off and relax. Whether you’re exploring the tropical Butterfly Conservatory with over 2,000 butterflies, kicking back with a pint of local craft beer at the delightfully tasty Niagara Brewing Company, or discovering endless fun on Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls really has it all. For a bird’s eye view of the Falls, hop on the Niagara SkyWheel (which is especially beautiful at night). Then, enjoy a bite for every taste at the wide selection of restaurants within walking distance of the Falls and hotels.
