While summer is a good time to explore Niagara Falls, it is essential to keep the weather in mind while planning your activities. Average temperatures in summer range from 23 to 28 degrees Celsius. The heat starts building up at around 10 a.m. and cools down by 8 p.m. Here are some tips to stay cool in the warm weather.
Tip: Grab breakfast and get an early start on the day. Plan your outdoor activities in the early part of the day and you can finish a fair bit of exploring by the time the heat starts to kick in. There are several sightseeing experiences, such as those offered by Magnificent Tours of Niagara where you can get a quick start like the Hornblower Niagara Cruises’ early morning sunrise tour to the mighty falls. The great part about starting early is that you can beat both the heat and the crowds.
Use the time after 11 a.m. to do some indoor activities. There are plenty of options from shopping at malls to indoor entertainment and activity hubs including the Table Rock Welcome Centre, Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks, Fallsview Indoor Water Park and Imax theatre. You can also head outdoors by late evening to discover the several attractions in and around the falls. If you want to use public transport, travel comfortably in air-conditioned WEGO buses.
Dress for the weather
Wear cotton or linen clothes if you are heading outdoors in the morning sun. Loose-fitting clothes aid in better air-circulation and will keep you cool. Avoid dark colours as they absorb more sunlight. If you are the kind to get sunburnt easily, wear clothes that cover your body. Otherwise it’s okay to wear T-shirts, shorts, sleeveless tops, skirts, loose trousers, etc. Prepare to face the sun with sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat or umbrella.
Stay hydrated and eat wisely
Water is one of the best ways to beat the heat! Before you head outdoors, it’s best to take a cool shower. And once you are on the move, drink water and lots of it. Sports drinks that provide electrolytes are also a way to recharge yourself. Avoid dehydration by drinking at regular intervals. Fruits and vegetables are another great way to stay cool and in Niagara, there is an abundant supply of both these foods.
These are simple tips to make the most of your Niagara Falls vacation and to beat the heat! You are all set to take on the summer in Niagara Falls!
