Although the legend is probably starting to slip, many people still think of Niagara Falls as a honeymoon destination. That it is, as most hotels in the area will offer discounts to newlywed couples. However, Niagara Falls is far more than just a place where people can stop by and look at one of the greatest natural attractions in the world. There’s a lot to do in the area.
For instance, there’s the Niagara Falls Aquarium, which sits just outside of Niagara Falls State Park. They have over 1,500 marine animals there, including sharks, seals and sea lions, and its open every day of the year except Thanksgiving and Christmas day. They even have shows where they highlight certain animals throughout the day.
Niagara Falls State Park is a pretty nice, comfortable park, which has as its focal point the Floral Clock, where the face of the clock is decorated with flowers galore. They change the look every six months, so if you go once a year you’re always guaranteed to see something different. There’s also a trolley that will take you all around the park, so you can see everything without having to walk the whole thing.
Next, they have three casinos in Niagara Falls, though only one on the American side. Seneca Niagara is the casino on the American side, and it’s actually better known for its restaurants and shows than its gambling. On the Canadian side, you have Casino Niagara, the original casino in the Niagara Falls area, and the Fallsview Casino Resort.
Niagara Falls is also known as a good place for a honeymoon. It is said that former Vice President’s daughter Theodosia was the first person to enjoy her honeymoon here in 1801. And another version was that Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother Jerome had his honeymoon in Niagara. Anyway, 200 years later, tens of thousands of newly married couples will come here to enjoy their sweet and romantic tours every year.
Besides honeymoons, many couples even hold their wedding ceremony in Niagara. Actually, it has perfect romantic atmosphere. The grand Falls will witness the most touchable moment in their life. Moreover, you don’t need to be busy preparing for other trivial things of wedding ceremony. Professional photographers, planners, florists and wedding cars will make everything simple and interesting.
Many scenic spots have small churches and luxury hotels with chic beds and breakfast. May be you can mastermind a special traditional celebration, too; or you can exchange your life promises in front of the magnificent waterfall. For accommodation, newly married couples and accompanying guests have a series of wonderful choices. There are more than 50 hotels which provide all kinds of honeymoon suites.
