Historical Resort Directly Across the Street from Waterfalls
When Marilyn Monroe wasn’t on set filming her 1953 movie Niagara, she might have been found in her room at Crowne Plaza – Fallsview Hotel. Located directly across the street from the iconic Horseshoe Falls, the hotel has hosted a number of notable guests during its 80-year history, including Walt Disney, Shirley Temple, Jimmy Stewart, and Queen Elizabeth II. From your own Fallsview two-double room, you can look out on the same dramatic partial falls views they enjoyed—a vista showcasing the awesome spectacle of 2,800 cubic meters of water barreling over the falls’ edge every second.
For additional aquatic thrills, Crowne Plaza – Fallsview Hotel features direct indoor access to Fallsview Indoor Waterpark. Though admission to the three-acre facility is not included in this Groupon, the park features 16 water slides, a huge wave pool, and an outdoor sundeck. Daredevil youngsters can hop on a mat and zoom down a six-story waterslide or weather a deluge by standing beneath a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket.
Adults may prefer to court Lady Luck at Casino Niagara, directly connected to the hotel. The lively casino hums to the tune of 1,500 slot machines and the clack of dice. To mix it up, take advantage of the included shuttle ride to Fallsview Casino, where you’ll find a slew of table games and upscale dining options.
Seven restaurants in nearby and adjacent properties provide diverse dining opportunities. Dinner at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra involves locally sourced dishes, fine wines, and impressive views of the waterfalls through gilded picture windows. Rainforest Cafe, Hard Rock Cafe, and Planet Hollywood are solid choices for families.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Legendary Waterfalls and Family Attractions
Niagara Falls, Ontario, rests on the province’s southeastern tip, where the Niagara River and the Canadian Falls create a natural boundary between Canada and the United States. For an up-close view of the world-famous natural phenomenon that gave the town its name, visit Journey Behind the Falls, where elevators descend 150 feet into the bedrock. From there, you can stand on a ledge carved out of the rock and view the falls from a stunning prospective—directly behind them.
Apart from the natural attractions, Niagara Falls offers plenty of entertainment in the way of casinos and family-friendly amusement parks. The glitzy, pedestrian-friendly promenade known as Clifton Hill boasts a wide array of attractions, including an indoor water park, a celebrity wax museum, and a ferris wheel overlooking Niagara Falls.
