We have recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, which got me thinking about a romantic break. Family holidays are wonderful, but, every now and again it is good to get away as a couple. 

As you will see, Niagara Falls is potentially a great destination for those of you who want to take a romantic break. Visiting these beautiful waterfalls is on many people’s bucket list. So, why not use it as the perfect excuse to get away together.

A hotel room with a special view

Treat yourself to somewhere like the Niagara Falls Marriott. It is a special holiday after all. 

If you can, choose a room with a view of the waterfall. There is nothing more romantic than breakfast in your room while looking out over this beautiful sight. At certain times of the year, you can also enjoy a fireworks display and light show. 

Book a spa day

Most of the top-end hotels in the area have spas. So, book yourself in and enjoy a few hours of being pampered together.

Romantic meal options

Restaurant owners know that a lot of people head to Niagara for their honeymoon and special anniversaries. So, you can easily find a quiet table and a special menu. This recent article will help you to choose the best romantic restaurant for you.

During high season, you can book yourself a 4-hour dinner cruise. The boat you are on will take you surprisingly close to the base of the waterfalls. In some ways, it is even more impressive than it is during the day. Plus, at the end of the night, you will get to enjoy the fireworks again. There are fireworks every night between May and September.

Journey Behind the Falls

This tour takes you down into the caves behind the waterfalls. You walk a little underground then emerge out onto a walkway that is at the same level as the base of the Falls. It is a remarkable experience, one that you will remember for years to come. Importantly, this attraction is open year-round. 

Nights out at the theatre and casino

There is no shortage of things to do, during the evenings. There are several theatres, live music and other events to enjoy as well as the Casino Resort.

Other activities

As well as hiking, there are plenty of adventure activities to enjoy. Having a thrilling time together is romantic in its own way. Exciting shared experiences bind you closer and will help you to truly destress.

When to go

I appreciate that you might want to time your romantic break to coincide with your anniversary. But, you need to be a bit careful about doing this. Quite a lot of the attractions and boat trips shut down during the off-season. So, always check before physically booking your trip. The Falls themselves look wonderful in practically any weather. But, if you do decide to travel off-season bear in mind that it can get very cold and quite wet. So, cold, in fact, that the powerful waterfalls occasionally freeze solid.
