Niagara Falls is arguably Canada’s most visited attraction – and for good reason. The falls are breathtaking and the rush of water creates a very unique experience. Yet, there is more than just the Falls… Here are some of the best new things in Niagara:
What to do in Niagara?
ENJOY THE THEATRE – If you love theatre, now is the time to visit. This beautiful town, just a short drive away from the Falls, is everything you could ever dream of. Better yet, the SHAW festival brings some of the best actors together for a summer theatre season like no other.
Celebrating the author, George Bernard Shaw, the festival puts on some of the most beautiful productions in the country. With amazing sets, stunning costumes and great actors, the Shaw festival is a must. Niagara on the Lake is a town that needs no introduction.
Its small, quaint and walking around its beautiful streets feels as if you have stepped into a movie. Perhaps a good analogy would be, small southern Ontario town, run by the Swiss. Besides the Shaw festival, it is also home to the Peach festival as well as the Fort George National Historic Site.
TAKE IN NIAGARA FALLS FIREWORKS SERIES – The popular Falls fireworks series has returned to delight visitors. Shows run nightly at 10:00 pm. The FALLS FIREWORKS CRUISE is also back! The popular nightly Falls Fireworks Cruise departs the Niagara City Cruises dock at 9:30 pm for the 40-minute tour. Tickets cost $43.25 for adults and $28.25 for children, plus applicable taxes.
NIAGARA FALLS ILLUMINATION – The majestic Falls are also illuminated every night of the year, creating some stunning views.
