Great Gifts for Dads
Father’s Day is coming soon and we have some great gifts for dads right here in Niagara Falls.
Here are our Top Five Favourite Things to Do with Dad:
Niagara has joined the ranks of the world’s premier golf destinations in terms of challenge, design aesthetics, course conditioning, facilities and service. The Top Five Recommended Courses: 1) Grand Niagara 2) Hunters Pointe, Legends on the Niagara, Whirlpool and Peninsula Lakes. These courses come highly recommended from some golf aficionados we know personally and take this sport very seriously.
Many people don’t know this, but Niagara is well known for its fishing. The popular fishing grounds are the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, where you can fish year-round for a variety of fish: Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Rainbow Trout (Steelhead) and Brown Trout.
Your captain Aldo Nava has appeared on the Canadian Sport Fishing Television Series (and does he know fish).
So what are you waiting for? Make your dad’s day with a sweet fishing trip.
Niagara is also known for their micro-breweries. Our favourites are Niagara Oast House Brewers and Silversmith.
Niagara Oast is easy to spot. It’s just down the road, past the old oak in the big red barn. They are famous for their Barn Raiser Brew, plus their live music every Friday night and their gourmet food from Gastronomo Vagabundo . You have to try their fish tacos.
Silversmith is another popular micro-brewery and what’s unique about them is that their location is inside an old church, built in 1894 (talk about character). What’s on tap? Black lager, Bavarian Breakfast Wheat, Hill 145 Golden Ale, Dam Buster British Pale Ale. And while you’re sipping one of these popular brews, you have to grab a bite to eat from Tide and Vine’s kitchen, serving pub food classics: oysters, po’ boys, wings and more. Your dad will love it!
What dad doesn’t love a classic steak and potato meal? Name one, we dare you. The Keg Steakhouse + Bar is known for their mouth-watering steak and succulent seafood.
You can’t go wrong with a Top Sirloin, Filet Mignon or Prime Rib served with potatoes just the way you like them (baked, roasted garlic mashed, twice baked or good old french fries). We look forward to seeing you at the Courtyard Marriot Keg Steakhouse + Bar very soon.
Play Tourist for a Day
Our last favourite thing to do with dad is to play tourist for a day. Why not start with an overnight stay at the Courtyard Marriott? Check out our 1 and 2 Night Packages, which include it all (room, breakfast, dinner voucher at The Keg or TGI Friday’s, WEGO shuttle passes and so much more). What dad doesn’t love steak? The Keg Steakhouse + Bar is located right in the lobby of the hotel and has so many different types of cuts to choose from. After dinner head on down to the Falls where your dad can experience some of the most popular attractions which will leave him speechless (Hornblower Niagara Cruises and Journey Behind the Falls). These two attractions are also part of our Niagara Falls Tour Package. Check out Above the Falls Tours for more information.
So you’ll all set for Father’s Day! You can thank us later!
