Things to do in Niagara Falls for March Break

Choose Niagara Falls for March Break

Kids everywhere are counting down the days until March Break. For those families who are looking for more of a funcation experience close to home, there are a ton of things to do in Niagara Falls for March Break.

Get ready to pack your bags and head over to the city filled with F-U-N!!

Here is a list of the must-see, must-do experiences while you are here:

#1 Stay at a Family Focused Hotel (hint, hint we know of a good Niagara Falls Hotel)

We all know that kids love hotels and for that one reason alone, you don’t really need to leave the hotel, because the kids will have fun jumping on the beds (shhh don’t tell the hotel), watching movies, staying in the their jammies all day, splashing in the indoor pool and checking out the arcade room. We do know however that as a parent for your sanity (insert a happy face emoji here) you need to leave the hotel.

#2 Clifton Hill

Kids of all ages are drawn to this place of fun. They could spend hours playing all the games in the Great Canadian Midway (over 70,000 square feet of fun to be exact). There is also the Ghost Blasters Dark Ride, Strike Rock N’ Bowl, Glow in the Dark mini golf and the Niagara SkyWheel and the new-ish Zombie Attack for those kids who are obsessed with zombies. Plus there are tons of Haunted Houses and Museums to explore. Your kids will never have an “I’m bored” moment. Also coming in June 2018 is the new Niagara Speedway Go Karts. Picture your traditional go-karts, but roller coaster style. Check out all the fun details.

#3 Butterfly Conservatory 

You’ll definitely get one with nature at the Butterfly Conservatory when you get transported into a tropical rain forest paradise full of lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls, and thousands of colourful butterflies (see if you can count them all). There should be over 2000. Parents you will love this experience too because it’s fun and educational (fun-cational). I think we just created a word. Nope, just googled it and it is a word.

#4 Bird Kingdom

A trip to Niagara Falls would not be complete without a trip to the Bird Kingdom, the World’s Largest Indoor Bird Aviary. Here you’ll experience an amazing array of exotic birds flying freely in a multi-level rainforest, a night jungle with bats, owls and other noctural creatures, a whole room dedicated to reptiles such as snakes, tortoises, bearded dragons and other exotic species and a lorikeet feeding area. See how the Bird Kingdom is the most fanciful thing this side of fiction.

#5 March Break and the Museum

The Niagara Falls Museum is just a 10 minute walk from the Courtyard Marriott Niagara Falls Hotel. During March Break you’ll make new discoveries about science and learn everything there is to know about bubbles from Miss T (the Bubble Queen). She will be hosting an entertaining and educational show that pushes the barriers of science to create a mixture of wonder, visual art, science, and magic all together in one bubble-fabulous spectacular show.

Bubbleology – March 13th – 16th – 10am – 5pm

There are two different shows at 11am and 1pm.  Afterwards kids can take a journey through the museum, make a winter-themed craft and complete a scavenger hunt, then finish the day off with a movie at 3pm.

Education mixed with fun is a great way to connect with your children during March Break.

#6 Greg Frewin Magic Show

What child doesn’t like magic? Greg Frewin is not like your typical magic shows. This show is similar to one that you would experience in Las Vegas – it’s captivating, featuring illusions and real siberian tigers and exotic birds that will take your breath away. Greg Frewin is an illusionist and “World Champion of Magic”. His awards include First Place at the International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM); The Gold Medal of Excellence, also from the IBM; First Place at the Society of American Magicians‘ annual magic convention competition; and first place at FISM, the “Olympics of Magic”, which were held in Yokohama, Japan in 1994. Greg Frewin was also featured on the Penn and Teller Show.


The Greg Frewin Theatre has two shows playing each day during March Break, from March 12th – 17th (one at 1:00pm and one at 7:30pm).

And speaking of magic, there’s also the Kevin & Caruso Magique Show with Madame Houdini at the Fallsview Casino, but this is for the grown-ups only (you must be 19 years of age of older). This show promises to fascinate audiences with their award-winning production “Magique” featuring the excitement of illusion, glamorous costumes and special effects! Why not bring the grandparents, a good friend, or aunt or uncle to watch the kids for one evening during your March Break Adventure and you can have a little fun too (the grown-up kind)?

#7 Mini Pops Live at the Scotiabank Convention Centre  – Saturday March 12th – 6:30pm

This just in…The first Mini Pops Live concert sold out so fast, that they opened another at 6:30pm. Get your tickets soon because they will sell out fast.

Plus, there are the obvious Niagara Falls Attractions that never sleep in the Winter, such as Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara’s Fury and more.
