How To Pick The Best Hotel/Entertainment Package

Having trouble finding vacation packages featuring the most affordable and comfortable hotel accommodation and entertainment options? The struggle is real and you are not alone. Many hotel guests spend time researching trips, spa center options, bars, lounges, or gym memberships attached to the hotel they are planning on booking. For some, a spa center inside the hotel is all the entertainment they need. For others, having a cinema, stand-up comedy hall, or casino room nearby is the real deal. Need help finding the best inspired hotel+entertainment packages for your next vacation or business trip? Here are a few tips to help you out.

Cave-of-Winds Tour: The Closest You’ll Ever Get to Niagara Falls

[schema type=”person” name=”Tia Jones” orgname=”IMAX Niagara” jobtitle=”SEO Marketing & PR” url=”https://plus.google.com/u/0/116040475449166900343/about” ]Niagara Falls is considered one of the top five cities in the world for attractions. It offers a full range of vacation ideas for the nearly 13 million annual visitors. Whether you enjoy an exciting tour, fine dining, a state-of-the-art movie experience, or a Niagara Falls outlet mall, Niagara Falls offers all that and much more.

One of the most popular tours is the “Cave of the Winds” tour. The tour is on the U.S. side of the falls. For $11 per person, or as part of a Niagara Falls pass, an elevator takes you down 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge where you can feel the enormous power of the wind and water and get a chance to get up close and wet. The line moves quickly and once you are out of the elevator you have as much time as you need. They do provide a rain poncho and non-slip water sandals.
This is one of the most amazing attractions Niagara has to offer.  To not only be a few feet from to the torrents of the falls, to get wet from the falls, but to feel the power of the water is incredible. Walkways and stairs are very slippery, so yes – you do have to wear the sandals. Don’t miss the Hurricane Deck – you will get wet – soaking, to the bone wet – but again, to feel the power of that water is incredible. The views of the non-soaking decks are fabulous.
In the spring, special “Cave of the Winds” tours are offered so visitors can experience a seasonal version of the attraction and see the decks being built for the upcoming season. Watch as skilled workers rebuild the boardwalks that lead to the Hurricane Deck – the decks and walkways are removed every November and reassembled each spring to protect them from the extreme winter conditions that exist in the Niagara Gorge.
Cave of the Winds Niagara Falls tour tickets can be purchased separately, and as part of the Niagara Falls Discovery Pass.
Another exciting attraction is the “Maid of the Mist” boat tour. The “Maid of the Mist” boats are a great way to experience the Niagara Falls. They take you directly to the base of the falls. The rides start from the jetties, both on the U.S. side and the Canadian side of the river, every 15 minutes. Waterproof clothing is provided.

“Maid of the Mist” tickets are available separately, and as part of the value-added Niagara Falls Adventure Pass which offers admission to Maid of Mist, Niagara’s Fury, Journey Behind the Falls, White Water Walk, Niagara: Miracles, Myths & Magic in IMAX. Purchase tickets and discount Niagara Falls Adventure passes online.

Other online ticket offers at IMAX Niagara:

  • SkyMax Combo with admission to IMAX Movie + Observation Level of Skylon Tower + Daredevil Gallery.
  • Daredevil Exhibit
  • Niagara: Miracles, Myths & Magic IMAX Movie
  • Star Trek Into Darkness: The IMAX Experience

Daredevil Kayak Stunt kiboshed by Police

Niagara Falls police put the stop on a kayak stunt that would have seen the daredevils go over the falls. Niagara Parks Police Inspector Paul Forcier said police received a tip about the stunt and contacted the individuals involved.

Any attempts to perform a stunt (wthout permission from the Niagara Parks Comission like Nik Wallenda) carries a fine of up to $9,600.  Of course, things could be a lot worse if you’re attempting to go over Niagara Falls in a Kayak!

Niclas Aarestrup Shares a Wide Variety of Things to Do at Niagara Falls

[schema type=”person” name=”Tia Jones” orgname=”IMAX Niagara” jobtitle=”SEO Marketing & PR” url=”https://plus.google.com/u/0/116040475449166900343/about” ]Here is a short and sweet description of Niclas Aarestrup’ travel experience in his own words.

I recently had a memorable travel experience to the beautiful Niagara Falls.  The main purpose of my trip to Niagara Falls was to write for a travel magazine about my travel experiencesI was accompanied by a female colleague who is also a good friend.

Niagara FallsWe flew into Buffalo airport and it took us about 40 minutes to get to Niagara Falls. We were stopping on the Canadian side so it literally took five minutes to get over the border. We had booked us three nights to stay at a cute Bed & Breakfast on River Road.

We left the Bed & Breakfast the next morning and started walking along River Road towards the falls. The weather was a bit chilly, but we both enjoyed taking tons of photos.  We walked past the American Falls and up to the Niagara Falls Canada attractions. It was just amazing to see the amount of water; something we will both remember for the rest of our lives.

The Niagara Falls tours we did were “The Journey Behind the Falls” and the “Maid of the Mist.” It was brilliant to see the falls so close up and would recommend it to others. Helicopter tours, which are very popular, are also available. Not many people can resist crossing the Niagara River with a whirlpool cable car. The track was designed by a Spanish engineer and has been in operation since 1916.

I recommend a minimum stay of two days since there are lots of things to do in Niagara Falls Canada. You should allow more time for visiting the surrounding area.

on board the Maid of the MistIf you have small children with you, please visit the “Rainforest Cafe.” Here, you will be greeted by a roaring crocodile. There is also a casino close by. Watch the falls – it costs nothing and you don’t even have to squeeze in a dark suit or an evening dress. Shorts, sandals and a T-shirt match perfectly the dress code. Only the parking can be expensive.

Next up, we visited The “Butterfly Conservatory.” We were glad that we went early, because, since the flow of visitors was still within acceptable limits, we could look around in peace. You may take pictures, but you should not touch the butterflies. The whole atmosphere seemed very relaxed and calm. It was not, as expected, hot and humid. The tropical plants made ​​it seem like a real rain forest.

If you are tired from walking and do not want to eat or drink, you should visit the IMAX Theatre. The theatre has a 6o feet screen and amazing digital surround sound. The movies are educational and heart-pounding. Now you can also watch Hollywood blockbusters at the IMAX Niagara. Tickets are $14.50 for adults and $10.44 for children.

 

Niclas AarestrupAccommodations are abundant in Niagara Falls. From Bed & Breakfast to motels to luxury hotels – one has lots of options. We always have good experiences with Bed & Breakfast.  Here, we always get a really good breakfast. The only downsides are the hosts. We usually have such interesting conversations that breakfast ends up taking three hours and all our plans get messed up.


 

Other fun things to see if you have more time:
• The “Niagara Spanish Aero Car.” This is a cable car across the river.
• Botanical Gardens
• A fragrance garden (Fragrance Garden)
• The “Niagara Park Green House”, a greenhouse with free-flying tropical birds
• The Flower (Floral Clock)
• A Lilac Garden (Lilac Garden)
• Marineland, which is a mixture of zoo, circus and folk festival. Marineland is open from mid-     October until mid- April.
• The “Minolta Tower Centre”
• A Dinosaur park with miniature golf
