Niagara Falls is a world-famous destination for entertainment, honeymooners and tourists. The region as a whole has plenty to offer beyond Niagara Falls with picturesque views of the escarpment, the Welland Canal and vast vineyards scattered between the Great Lakes, Ontario and Erie. With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, there is no shortage of ways to celebrate it in the Niagara region!
The City of Welland will be celebrating its 14th Annual Children’s New Year’s Eve Bash while Thorold has free Christmas skates at multiple times over the holidays. Perfect options for a busy family!
A great family outing in December is a visit to the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse.
