Things to do in Niagara Falls with your Love

Things to do in Niagara Falls with your Love

With the big romantic Hallmark day just around the corner, there is always the question of what to do with your love. And often times that can be A LOT of pressure for one day. While we are big supporters of showing the one you love you appreciate and adore them, our belief is you don’t have to dedicate one day of the year to show them.  So rather than focusing on one day, we are calling the whole month of February – the month of LOVE. Plus if you live in Canada, we certainly need something to celebrate in February, because let’s be honest with ourselves, we’re all silently (or maybe loudly) counting down to Spring.

Here are all the fabulous romantic things to do in Niagara Falls with your favourite someone:

For the Love of Music 

There are a lot of Niagara Falls Concerts for all music enthusiasts happening on both sides of the border.

Seneca Niagara Casino 

Richard Marx (solo) – February 18th (a favourite with the ladies)

Hotel California Eagle Tribute – February 20th (what a great tribute)

Tracy Morgan – February 26th (it’s a night full of laughter)

Fallsview Casino

Taylor Dane – February 12th (okay, it’s a little girly, but it’s because you love her)

Michael Bolton – February 13th and 14th (the ladies love Michael)

Dancing Pros Live – February 18th – 25th (do it for her)

Little Big Town – February 27th and 28th (you’ll be in her good books if you can get tickets for this one)

For the Love of Wine – Niagara-on-the-Lake Wineries

Days of Wine and Chocolate – Feb 6th – Feb. 28th (weekends in February). 

It’s a weekend filled with VQA wines and decadently sweet and savoury chocolate pairings (need we say more). 23 Wineries. Touring passes are $35 each.

Wine & Paint Classes – 13th Street Winery – Feb. 8th or Feb. 15th – 6pm – 9pm

Let wine inspire your inner artist during a three hour painting class led by local artists, Melanie Davies Persia or Julie Snider. Classes are $44.95 per class.

Snowshoeing in the Vineyards – Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30am and 1:30pm until the end of March – Thirty Bench Winery.
Get ready for a truly unique, Canadian experience this winter and snowshoe or hike through Thirty Bench’s Riesling vineyards! A local Snowshoe expert will teach you tips and best trekking methods while their wine consultant guides you through samples of Thirty Bench wines amongst the snow covered vines. Afterwards, enjoy a warm cup of soup from The Good Earth, while sitting outside by the fire. $30 per guest, exclusive of taxes. Includes snowshoes, guided trek, wine tastings, and a Thirty Bench souvenir GoVino glass to take home, as well as a warm cup of soup from The Good Earth.

*Soup is Vegan and gluten free

**If mother nature fails to blanket the vineyards with snow, the event will still proceed as a hike through the vineyards. Please provide 48 hours’ notice to cancel your reservation for a full refund. Also, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time.

Chicks and Chocolate – Peller Estates Winery

Spend an afternoon with the chicks that you love in your life. From Monday – Friday at 2pm and weekends at 2pm and 4pm, visit Peller Estates Winery for wine and chocolate pairings. Plus learn how the two in combination complement each other and can awaken your senses (the educational aspect and the antioxidants from the chocolate (if dark) and wine will make you feel good).

For the Love of Food – Niagara Falls Restaurants

For all the steak and seafood lovers out there, come and celebrate the month of love at The Keg Steakhouse + Bar, located in the lobby of the Courtyard by Marriott Niagara Falls. Start with some shareable appetizers, such as Mushrooms Neptune or the Baked Brie. For the main course, you can never go wrong with the Keg classics: Prime Rib, Top Sirloin or a Filet Mignon (this is making me hungry just writing about it). End your romantic evening with their famous Billy Miner pie, crème brulée or sweet minis (a fudge brownie and mango brulée) and be sure to ask for two spoons.

For the Love of Sleep

Nothing is more romantic than getting away for a few days. The Courtyard by Marriott Niagara Falls has a few sweet Niagara Falls Romance Package Deals right now. Our favourite is the Ultimate One Night Romance Package starting at $119 per night which includes: accommodations, breakfast buffet, dinner voucher for The Keg or T.G.I. Fridays, cocktails at the Keg, a bottle of wine and keepsake glasses, hershey kisses, wine tasting, beer tasting, cheese tasting, fudge tasting and a lavender culinary experience and shuttle passes. At this price, how can you resist?

Out of all the Niagara Falls Hotels, the Courtyard is just footsteps from all of the fun: Niagara Falls, Casino Niagara, the Fallsview Casino, Journey Behind the Falls and other Niagara Falls attractions. Check out all the fun in our latest Courtyard Video.

Make room for a little fun this whole month of love.

So of course we are going to do something special for our Country’s Birthday and the Birthday of our Great Neighbour (or should be say Neighbor?). Come and join us on July 1st and 4th for some spectacular eye candy in the sky. Plus don’t miss the Coca Cola Concert Series on the Queen Victoria Stage right across from Niagara Falls which happens every evening right before the Fireworks.

Canada Day Parade

Nothing says patriotism like a Canada Day Parade. The festivities start at 11am along Victoria Avenue to Queen Street ending on St. Clair Avenue. Following the parade, get ready for some musical entertainment at City Hall starting at 12:30pm until 9pm. And you can’t have a birthday celebration without birthday cake, plus free face painting and more.

Can you believe that we’ve been celebrating the Friendship Festival for 29 years?

Niagara Microbreweries

If something “hoppy” is what you are looking for, check out Niagara Oast House Brewers (just look for the Big Red Barn past the Old Oak) or Silversmith in Niagara-on-the-Lake (just look for the church and old church from 1894 converted in a microbrewery). You will be pleasantly surprised with both.
