Who knew that raging, plummeting water was so much fun?

One of the closest streets to the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls is Clifton Hill, home to a number of amusements and entertainment venues. Daytime activities bustle, and nightlife is electric. No trip to Niagara Falls is complete without exploring the sights and sounds of this feature-packed location.

Things to do
Clifton Hill attractions

The street itself is filled with all sorts of attractions and family-friendly activities. To enjoy some of the best city views, ride the Niagara Skywheel, Canada's largest observation wheel. Passengers rise 175 feet into the air, appreciating all of the local landmarks from a bird's eye view.

Sea life enthusiasts must visit Marineland. There are feeding exhibits and thrilling rides to please guests of all ages, plus ocean and land-based exhibits that education as well as entertain. Meet dolphins, belugas and killer whales.

At Movieland, you can rub elbows with lifelike wax figures of the stars. Capture photos with various Hollywood personalities to make your friends a little jealous. At the end of the tour, guests can enter the House of Horrors, a spooky experience that lives up to its name.

No one should leave without an up-close and personal view of Niagara Falls. A ride on Maid of the Mist will take you right to both the American and Horseshoe Falls. You'll feel the spray on your face as you take in Falls' magnificence directly from the boat.

Clifton Hill shopping

Clifton Hills's shopping district offers unique stores and specialty shops for souvenir hunters. Apparel, perfume, Cuban cigars and sparkling jewelry are just some of the items waiting to be discovered. And don't leave without sampling one of 20 gourmet fudge flavors at The Fudge Factory.

Clifton Hill entertainment

When the day comes to a close, this area springs into life. Dance the night away at Rumours Nightclub or press your luck at one of the nearby casinos. There are always celebrity headliners in the comedy clubs and concert venues as well. For a more relaxed evening, enjoy some food and ale at a local pub.

Where to stay

Choose one of the great Canada hotelsin the middle of the fun at Niagara Falls, and enjoy views and attractions, all within walking distance. For an intimate experience, select a charming inn or drive-up motel. There are also well-known chain hotels that offer comfortable accommodations at affordable prices, from the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel to the Crowne Plaza and the Days Inn & Suites.

Special events

Throughout the year, the area is filled with colorful fireworks displays. The skies are lit against the Falls' breathtaking backdrop. Clifton Hill also hosts a fabulous series of events to commemorate Canada's birthday; usually held the first weekend of summer, visitors enjoy a parade, concerts and other buzzing activities. Fall brings the Niagara Wine Festival for white or red lovers, and the International Marathon for athletes. Get a personal tour of local vineyards, or join over 6,000 runners at one of the most scenic running courses in the world.

Best time to visit

Most visitors choose to enjoy the area in the summer months. Average temperatures are in the 80s, but the breeze from the water cools things comfortably. Crowds are plentiful, but that makes perfect sense since the attractions are in full swing. Spring and fall are quieter times to plan a stay. Temperatures cool down, and fewer people congregate. Freezing winter temperatures deter visitors, but hotel rates plummet along with the mercury for an extremely inexpensive getaway during this time of year.


Skyline Hotel & Waterpark

Strange layout but close to water park

We enjoyed having fairly easy access to the waterpark. But the layout is just strange and confusing. Imagine arriving after a long drive and you enter the lobby to register but need to visit the bathroom *quickly*. Surprise, there's no bathrooms available anywhere in the hotel unless you're in your room. Instead, you are sent back across the parking lot to the Perkins restaurant. Unbelievable. The "courtyards" are interesting, but they do movie-night so be prepared to hear movie and kids right up until 10pm. Not the end of the world, but something to be aware of if it's important to you.

Sterling Inn & Spa - an Ontario's Finest Inn

Close to everything

Large room, large dated balcony for smoking. No rug, a little rough on feet. The room was exceptional with a nice fire place and bar sink area. Large windows and super comfy beds. Will be back. Free parking would be nice instead of $15 since capacity was only 10%. $10 overnight parking available across the street.

Travelodge At the Falls

Location and price nailed

Great location and price... room was comfortable and met are needs. I booked based on location the hotels offering fall views are far away from everything else to do. This was at the end of the falls that has all the entertainment and shops. Loved it and glad we stayed here vs bigger name hotels that cost more and were far from the things our kids enjoyed... like the sky wheel, arcades, etc.
