Niagara Falls during the Holidays

There are so many reasons to come to Niagara Falls during the Holidays, but we'll share the Top Five Reasons Why you Need to Spend the Holidays with Us:

#1 Niagara Falls in the Winter - it's just as glorious as Niagara Falls in the Spring, Summer and Fall, but there is something so magical about the frozen ice and icicles. Plus there aren't any line-ups and crowds, so you get a little one-on-one time with the incredible natural wonder, Niagara Falls.

#2 The 35th Annual Winter Festival of Lights - each year the Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights gets better and better. Over 2 Million twinkling lights over an 8km route. It's the perfect Winter tradition to start with family and friends. Plus there are fireworks every Friday night and nightly from Dec. 22nd - Dec. 29th.


#3 Deck the Falls Walking Tour - if you are looking for a fun and unique experience during the holidays, you'll definitely have to check out the Deck the Falls Walking Tour. This self-guided tour allows you to explore signature experiences at sixteen venues in Niagara Falls at your leisure. This is the last weekend to be part of this fun-filled experience: December 15, 16 from 5 - 10pm. The WEGO shuttle is also available, if walking isn't your thing. Tickets can be purchased at
