Staying With Us on Valentine's DayJanuary 25, 2020
There are a lot of ways to really, really enjoy Valentine’s Day in Niagara Falls.
Some of them, we will leave to your imagination. For a few good suggestions, though, please read on.
For starters, check out – and check into – Howard Johnson By The Falls, on Victoria Avenue in the heart of the Clifton Hill tourist district.
It’s centrally located not only with attractions all within easy walking distance, but it’s right on the WeGo tourist transit system which can take you pretty much anywhere in the city, including to the edge of the mighty falls themselves.
But this is Valentine’s Day, so consider what HoJo has to offer to make this an especially special time for you and your partner.
The hotel has several great packages to consider, such as the aptly named Romance Package, designed with couples in mind.
After you book, you will receive a beautiful gift basket including a 750 ml bottle of chilled VQA wine made right here in Niagara, as well as two keepsake wine glasses, a corkscrew and ice bucket, coffee candies, chocolate wafer rolls, mints and hikers mix.
There’s more, of course: This package also gets you a $25 voucher for Denny’s restaurant at the hotel for both your first and second night, and another meal voucher to use at the nearby Keg Steakhouse and Bar ($40) or Denny’s ($35).
As well, you will receive two adult passes to the magnificent Niagara Skywheel Ferris wheel next door, and two passes to ride the WeGo.
Also with Valentine’s Day in mind, HoJo offers a Niagara Wine Tour Package. Wine is the most romantic of all drinks, of course, and Niagara is the wine capital of Canada.
Book your tour with HoJo, and in addition to your room and the meal vouchers for Denny’s and The Keg mentioned above, you will also receive two adult passes for a fully narrated half-day wine tour and tastings.
The tour takes four or five hours, and includes tastings with an expert wine guide. Not only that, it stops at some of the top wineries in the entire region.
You will also have 75 minutes to explore historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of the prettiest small towns in the country.
Shopping there is wonderful in the Old Town, with quaint shops and specialty stores along the main street, and there are horse-drawn carriage rides as well.
What a great way for two people to get away by themselves for a while and sample the really better things in life.
And this is Valentine’s Day – want to get lucky? Just a few minutes’ walk from your HoJo hotel room is Casino Niagara, a beautiful gaming hall that overlooks the American Falls.
It offers about 1,300 slots games and 40 tables with games like blackjack, roulette and poker and more.
If you walk, take a gander at many of the other attractions along the way. They don’t call Clifton Hill the “Street of Fun” for nothing.
If walking isn’t an option, there is the WeGo bus that will take you right there as well, and it runs regularly all through the day.
February, of course, is the month of love. And you will love your stay with HoJo in Niagara Falls.
