5 Things to Do in Niagara Falls, Canada on a Multigenerational Trip

Niagara Falls is a quintessential multigenerational family trip. Who wouldn’t want to experience the majestic falls between the U.S. and Canada with their entire family? After seeing the falls, you may be wondering what else to do with your family in the area. See my list of the top 5 things to do in Niagara Falls a multigenerational family vacation.

1. Take a boat ride
Whether you ride the American Maid of the Mist or Canada’s Hornblower Niagara Cruises, get ready for an up-close encounter with the force of nature that is Niagara Falls. As you can see, ponchos are required and included with the price of admission because you are going to get wet. There are places inside the boat to see the falls without getting wet. But because taking pictures and video are allowed, why not get a little wet to see this iconic landmark? Tours depart every 15 minutes or so, but I would recommend making this your first stop of the day to avoid long lines.

2. Take a Helicopter ride
One of the best ways to see the fall is through a 12-minute flying tour with Niagara Helicopters. Group rates and multi-language options are available as you enjoy breathtaking aerial views of the American and Canadian Falls, Niagara River, Rainbow Bridge and beautiful stretches of Canadian beauty, all while learning a bit of history through the individual headsets. Plan your flight on a beautiful day and bring your favorite camera and video camera to capture the memories. Consider purchasing the Niagara Helicopters photo package for group pictures, including professional pictures of your favorite landmarks.

How about a self-guided tour with over 2,000 butterflies? Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens & Butterfly Conservatory lets you learn from nature as you walk the conservatory. Better yet, it is also part of the Niagara Falls Wonder Pass so with the price of admission you can see several location attractions.

4. Experience Marineland
Want to feed a beluga whale or get to know some beautiful sea creatures? Marineland has thrilling rides, family-friendly attractions, animal encounters and restaurants.

5. Niagara Falls Fireworks
Looking for the free entertainment? The free fireworks show over Niagara Falls is a must-see, so definitely check schedule for the latest dates and timing.

Plus Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites is just a short walk or drive from these multigenerational things to do in Niagara Falls and offers amazing views of the falls from the Watermark Restaurant on the 33rd floor and Myst Lounge on the 34th floor.
