The last recorded freezing of the falls has been in 1911, which can now be recollected on some valuable vintage postcards from those following winter weeks at the beginning of the past century.
Niagara Falls has been a tourist attraction for decades with people flowing in from all over the world every year. In fact, the visiting itself attracts so many tourists that it represents a significant boost to the local economy.
Exploiting this natural wonder in a professional, tourist oriented manner has made room for activities like a Hornblower Cruise, or the Whirlpool Jet Boat tour. You will also find plenty of souvenir shops and if you fancy gambling than the Fallsview Casino might just be the place for you.
In case you’re on a family trip, don’t hesitate to visit the beautiful Niagara Botanical Gardens and the Skylon Tower for a spectacular view. Aside from these, you might want to head out to the Niagara wine tour or perhaps get a glimpse on tiger training at the Theatre Magic Show.
Finish your day with a romantic dinner at Fallsview restaurant and/or enjoy a wonderful spa. And, yes, fireworks are a habit to these people.
Beautiful as it may sound, before booking for a Niagara Falls tour this time of the year, make sure that the weather conditions are favorable for your flight and stay. Given the occurrence of a Polar vortex, extreme temperatures have been registered all across North America for the past weeks and still continue to put authorities to the test.
