Feel the love in one of the most romantic places in the world–Niagara Falls. It is hardly surprising that Niagara Falls is known as the honeymoon capital of the world. It’s not just for honeymooners, but couples of all ages. There are a number of romantic activities to enjoy in and around the falls.
Romancing the Falls
The sight of the spectacular falls itself is a romantic experience unto itself. The Horseshoe Falls in particular with its crescent shape and immense sheets of water gushing down is incredible. Just watching the falls together with your sweetheart is a lovely feeling and the pristine surroundings add to the atmosphere. There are many ways to enjoy the splendour of the falls. During the daytime, you can see the falls from different vantage points like the Table Rock Welcome Centre or the Queen Victoria Park.
To feel on top of the world, go to the Skylon Tower Observation Deck for a view of the falls like none other. You can also go for a romantic boat ride at night on the Hornblower Niagara Cruises Falls Illumination Cruise or the Falls Fireworks Cruise. The illuminated falls at night create a romantic atmosphere as the falls are bathed in colour. Witness the fireworks display above the illuminated falls in the second cruise accompanied by music, snacks and drinks. You can also view the illumination and fireworks from the comfort of one of our Fallsview Hotel Rooms.
