Have you planned something exciting for March break?
A trip to Niagara is a fun way to spend this break with your family. There are plenty of activities around the region that are just perfect for both adults and children. On your Niagara tour, you will be able to see not just the spectacular waterfalls but also enjoy various other experiences and indoor/outdoor activities.
Here are some of the best ways to spend your vacation in Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and other areas in the Niagara region:
The Famous Waterfalls at Niagara
In March, the grip of winter weakens slightly so while there is a chill in the air and the occasional snowfall, the majestic waterfalls still look incredible. You can have an up, close and personal experience with the Niagara Falls at the Journey Behind the Falls attraction at the Table Rock Welcome Centre. A visit to Queen Victoria Park also gives you splendid views of the falls.
Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, Niagara Falls
Other great spots to hang out with your family include the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, a wonderful place with an indoor wave pool, outdoor sundeck with pool, 16 waterslides and a mammoth 1000 gallon tipping bucket that will soak you. You will have a tough time convincing your kids to head back to your hotel after spending time here!
Escape Rooms, Niagara Falls
Adventure Rooms Canada, The Crux, and Qube Escape Rooms are so much fun that you and your family might keep coming back for more. Both adults, and kids as young as ten or even lower can enjoy the theme-based puzzle games. Put on your thinking cap and use the clues, codes, keys and props to find your way out of the rooms in a specific time frame.
Niagara SkyWheel and other Clifton Hill attractions
Clifton Hill has a buzzing energy, shops, restaurants, and plenty of activities for all ages. One of the highlights is the Niagara SkyWheel, a giant Ferris Wheel with climate-controlled gondolas. You can go for a ride that takes you 175 feet up into the air and enjoy amazing views of the area including the stunning waterfalls.
Clifton Hill has several other attractions including Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks and Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum.

Butterfly Conservatory, and Bird Kingdom
In Niagara Falls, you can see several species of butterflies at the glass enclosed Butterfly Conservatory, and birds at Bird Kingdom–one of the world’s largest indoor free flying aviaries.
Fort George, Niagara-on-the-Lake
If you and your family enjoy learning about history, you can go see the various restored sections of the fort and witness a musket firing demonstration. The fort is open only during weekends in March so check the schedule before you go.
Fort George also has an outdoor skating rink during winter, so it might be still open in March. If it is, you can head there for some fun skating time with your family.
Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, Lincoln
Visit the upper and lower falls, explore the trails, and see various structures at a 19th century hamlet in this wonderful conservation area.
