When most people think of romantic travel destinations, the Niagara Falls is not the first place that pops into their mind. This is a big shame, because as you will see it has a lot to offer couples looking for romance.
A Top-class Hotel
There are some really beautiful Niagara Falls hotels to choose from. If you are looking for a romantic experience, you really cannot beat a five-star room located on one of the upper floors. From there you can look out over the magnificent waterfalls.
Sitting in front of your Fallsview window with a glass of something nice and a room service meal, at night, is a beautiful experience. Especially, on the nights when there is a light show or fireworks. At midnight the lights are turned off and you can enjoy stargazing instead.
More Romantic Niagara Ideas
If you want a few more experiences to add to your itinerary, you can find more here. This article takes a tongue in cheek look at the subject, so it is fun to read, but it really does contain some great suggestions for couples.
Ride the SkyWheel
The Clifton Hill SkyWheel gives you great views of the entire area. If you are there in the summer months, you can even take a romantic night time ride. The SkyWheel stays open late on Fridays.
However, if you really want to add this experience to your romantic getaway it makes sense to book your ticket in advance. This and many of the other attractions we mention in this article book up fast during the peak visitor season.
Take a Romantic Walk
If you want to take a peaceful romantic walk, there are plenty of opportunities to do so in and around the Falls. The botanical gardens are an especially nice place to do stroll through. But, if you are looking for a more natural environment you are in luck because the Falls are located in a huge State Park. There are numerous trekking paths for you to enjoy.
Lunch at a Winery
If you and your partner like wine and good food, lunch at a winery will be perfect for you. There are a few ways to do it, but if you take one of the organised tours your transport is included. That way you can enjoy a couple of glasses of wine without worrying about having to drive.
Enjoy a Couples Spa Experience
There are some lovely spas in the area that offer couples experiences. Usually, the packages include a massage, a romantic meal, and cocktails. These special packages offer a really great way to relax, unwind and enjoy each other’s company after a long day of sightseeing.
See the Falls
Of course, there is no point in visiting the area if you do not get up close to the Falls. They really are awe-inspiring. There are lots of ways to see and experience them. You can take a boat tour, crash through the water on a speedboat or take a helicopter or light aircraft trip above the Falls. None of these suggestions are particularly romantic, but they are all definitely fun and will certainly be memorable.
