Niagara Falls Valentine's Day

Niagara Falls Valentine's Day...the countdown begins

The countdown to one of the sweetest days of the years begins. Whether you’ll be celebrating with an intimate dinner at home or doing something more grandiose...like closing your eyes, doing the old spin around and seeing where your finger lands on the map. Always know that whatever you plan, whether big or small, what matters most is that you are with that special someone that makes your heart go pitter patter. Niagara Falls is known for being one of the most romantic places to be any day of the year (not just on Valentine's Day). After all it has been coined the ‘Honeymoon Capital of the World.’ Here’s a list of some of the most desired things to do to make your Niagara Falls Valentine’s Day one that will be remembered for years to come:

The Music Scene

Music definitely plays a big role when it comes to romance. And speaking of romance, there are a lot of Niagara Falls Casino Concerts happening just in time for Valentine’s Day. +Live+ - February 9th - A multi-platinum band that has sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums. +LIVE+ is one of the most powerful alternative rock bands, known for hits such as Lightning Crashes, I Alone and All Over You. Kurt Elling - February 14th - Renowned for his combination of robust swing and poetic insight, Grammy winner Kurt Elling will be taking the stage on the sweetest day. Josh Groban - February 15th - 16th - Josh Groban has thrilled fans across the globe with his multi-platinum albums, live performances, film and television appearances and he is here to keep the thrills going at the Fallsview Casino.

Some Kind of Wine-der-ful

Niagara Wine Country is the place to be this Valentine’s Day with so many delicious events. Days of Wine and Chocolate – weekends in February from 11am  - 5pm Experience over 20 VQA wines matched with chocolate-infused dishes – from classically sweet flavour combinations to unexpected surprises. This is definitely a romantic celebration for two. Wine Cheese + Chocolate - Peller Estates Winery  If you and your love have an adoration for wine, cheese and chocolate, then this 45-minute interactive food pairing seminar is for you. You will be taken on a flavour journey, which consists of: tasting of four premium Peller Estates wines and the perfect food pairings with hands-on fun. Wine time will never be the same once you fondue, brulee and smoke some of our favourite chocolate and cheesy creations. Outdoor Skating at Wayne Gretzky's Winery  It doesn't get much more romantic than this! Bring your skates and take a spin on their backyard rink (a favourite Canadian activity), and relax on The Whisky Bar Patio (with heaters) as you experience fine wine & cocktails (non-alcoholic beverages available, too) from Friday to Sunday. And since we are on the topic of Niagara Wineries, there are over 100 to choose from, so you could literally be sampling and touring for weeks. Check out the list of Niagara Wineries.

Things are Brewing Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

Niagara is also becoming known for its ever-growing Micro-Breweries. And to make it simple, just follow the Niagara Ale Trail, which will lead you to some of the best micro-breweries in the Region.

The Way to a Man/Woman’s Heart is Through Their Stomach

Niagara is also over-flowing with some fantastic restaurants. Name the cuisine and Niagara has it. Who doesn’t like steak and seafood? Our favourite is the traditional and always consistently good, Keg Steakhouse + Bar, located in the lobby of the Courtyard Marriott Niagara Falls. Just ignore all of the listed calories on the new menus, because this day is all about indulgence. How about starting with some shareable appetizers, such as scallops and bacon or baked brie? For the main course, you can never go wrong with the Keg classics: Prime Rib, Top Sirloin or a Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon (everything tastes better with bacon). Nothing says romance like sharing a dessert, half the calories, double the fun. The perfect ending to an exceptional meal?! You have to try the traditional Billy Miner Pie or the Crème Brûlée? We weren't joking when we said - name the cuisine and Niagara has it. Italian - Antica Pizza, Bravo, Carpaccio's | Greek - Koutouki | Indian - Moksha | Japanese - Wind
