Imagine watching your children’s expressions after their first glimpse of the iconic Niagara Falls or hear their excited squeals as hundreds of butterflies in a rainbow of colours descend in their midst.
Choosing a family getaway matters because those are the moments that can educate, excite and create ever-lasting memories for both young and old. It’s a time to bond and share moments together.
As Niagara Falls native James Cameron’s new movie Avatar: The Way of Water captures the story of family and human experience in a fantasy setting, it also highlights the allure of water.
That may be why so many families are drawn to indoor water adventures.
At the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark your youngsters can explore a mammoth play area that includes a Beach House and rain fortress complete with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket as well as wave pool.
Splash the day away at Americana Conference Resort Spa & Waterpark Waves Waterpark. Featuring over 25,000 sq. feet of fun packed under one retractable roof.
When the sun sets, bundle up and watch the twinkle in everyone’s eyes while experiencing the larger than life displays at the Winter Festival of Lights. This Family Day weekend will also include live indoor entertainment featuring a special 3-night show by Splash and Boots.
What’s a more Canadian way to spend with family than visiting a sugar farm to not only sample maple syrup but take a tour and enjoy the fresh outdoors. Niagara is host to a number of farms to explore.
When it is time to head inside, have your camera ready to capture your children’s expressions as they are greeted by hundreds of tropical birds while exploring the indoor pathways of a multi-level rainforest experience at the Bird Kingdom. Feed and interact with lorikeets and get up close with parrots and a host of other exotic creatures.
Equally photo worthy is the Butterfly Conservatory where more than 2000 butterflies flutter freely throughout the tropical paradise. As well as entertaining, there’s also an educational component with interactive displays and the chance to witness a butterfly emerge from its pupa, hanging to dry before it takes its first flight.
Whether its indoor water sports, unique fresh air activities or encounters with rare butterflies and birds, discover how Niagara can help your family create a treasure-trove of memories that will last a lifetime.
