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 jimmies 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 under 12 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. Plus there are tons of Haunted Houses and Museums.
#3 Butterfly Conservatory – Northern Owls Exhibit
This is a limited time exhibit at the Butterfly Conservatory featuring these magical birds of prey. Learn about the fascinating behaviour, biology and lifestyle of owls during this special exhibition! During March Break week there will be a display with demos on March 11th, 12th 15th and 18th. And parents you will love this 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.
Northern Owls Exhibit
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 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.

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 about the history of snow.
Mad Science – March 14th – 17th – 10am – 4pm
There are two different shows at 11am and 1pm. Kids will experience the coldest snow around and the magic of chemical reactions! Afterwards they 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.
Family Yoga Series – March 16th – 7pm – 9pm
This is a great way to connect with your family through interactive yoga games, stretching and hopefully having a zen moment (even a small moment would be good).
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 13th – 18th (one at 1:30pm and one at 7:30pm).
