For more than a century, they have called Niagara Falls the Honeymoon City.
It’s a perfect fit – the natural surroundings here are breathtaking, starting with the Horseshoe Falls itself.
In winter, the ice that collects on the trees and on the railings at the top of the falls is enchanting, and the greenery all along the waterfront is very refreshing amid such a bustling city.
You don’t have to be a married couple to enjoy the Honeymoon City, though, especially around Valentine’s Day.
First step: select a lovely place to stay for your romantic getaway. For that, no hotel is better situated here than Holiday Inn By The Falls, on Murray Street.
Perched atop the Niagara Escarpment, the hotel overlooks the Horseshoe, American and Bridal Veil falls and the surrounding greenscape so beautifully maintained by the Niagara Parks Commission.
In fact, the falls is just a short walk away, down Murray Hill.
Holiday Inn has a plan designed specifically for couples looking for a special way to mark Valentine’s Day.
The Enchanted Getaway Package includes one night’s accommodation, and a romantic dinner for two atop the world-famous Skylon Tower in its Revolving Dining Room – talk about a breathtaking view of the falls!
As well, with this package you receive breakfast for two in Coco’s Terrace Steakhouse located at the hotel, a free wine tasting at one of the many, many Niagara wineries, free hotel parking and 15 per cent off at selected Skylon Tower souvenir outlets.
The Skylon, by the way, is right next door to the Holiday Inn – one of numerous attractions here in the Fallsview district.
A couple doors down from the hotel is the magnificent Fallsview Casino Resort, with more than 3,000 slot machines and 26 gaming tables for everything from poker to roulette and blackjack.
Holiday Inn By The Falls has other packages, too, perfect for couples looking for a little alone time together.
There is the Breakation Breakfast Package, which starts with two nights’ accommodation.
This is a good one because it allows you more time to see all that the city, and Niagara region, have to offer. This package comes with dinner for two at the Skylon Revolving Dining Room, dinner for two at Coco’s, plus breakfast each day at Coco’s and a free tasting at a Niagara winery.
Then there is the Niagara Falls Attractions Package, which starts with two nights’ accommodation, and admission tickets to some of the city’s top tourist spots (and we’ve got a million of ‘em).
If you do bring the kids, they get to stay and eat for free if they are 12 or younger.
Holiday Inn is a great place to stay in the Falls any time, and not just due to its perfect location. It also offers indoor and outdoor pools, a Nordic spa whirlpool and fitness centre.
But hey, Valentine’s Day comes only once a year – what are you waiting for? Give us a call!
