Cheers! Brewery Tours
If drinking flights instead of taking flights are more your thing, why not dive into Niagara County’s booming beer scene? The region is stacked with quirky craft breweries and cideries where you can taste test everything from awesome ales to punchy pilsners. Hotspots to discover include New York Beer Project in Lockport to Woodcock Bros Brewing Co. in Wilson. If you and the guys prefer the grape to the grain, think of touring the county’s knock-out winelands, too.
Gone fishing, bro? With Niagara Falls USA being such a water wonderland, it’s zero surprise that its rivers, lakes and canals make for some of America’s most bounty-rich fishing waters. In our various freshwater ecosystems, you’ll find everything from salmon and trout to warm-water species like carp and pike. And whether you plan on chartering a boat or just casting a line from terra firma, you’ll find something to throw on the grill for sure.
Jet Boat Adventures
Buckle up — as Niagara Falls USA has two jet boat companies! Niagara Jet Adventures is an ultimate whitewater experience where you can pop-on the GoPro and speed through the Niagara River aboard the outfit’s high-spec rig boats. Over the one-hour outing, you’ll hurl through the Niagara River’s might — best witnessed at the jaw-dropping Class V rapids of Devil’s Hole. Hold on tight for the Cowboy Spin — a 360-degree maneuver that’s the ultimate test! Not wet enough? Grab a seat aboard the open-air Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours. These colorful vessels pack 1,500 horsepower, and yes, will get you absolutely soaking wet.
What better way to tee-off your mancation than with a relaxing (OK, competitive) round of golf in Niagara Falls USA? Hailed as one of western New York’s top golfing playgrounds, the Seneca Hickory Stick course in Lewiston offers day passes to its stunning, yet challenging, 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones II (which also boasts an awesome natural setting). If you’re thinking of playing closer to downtown Niagara Falls, hit the greens of the municipal golf course at Hyde Park.
Sky High Over the Falls
How about gliding over Niagara Falls on a chopper? Roger that! The epic Rainbow Air Inc., Helicopter Tours fly and dip passengers above the Niagara River, from the Falls themselves along to the highlights on the gorge. Nature enthusiasts can be blown away by wildlife, tech mavens can marvel at the hydro-electric stations and everyone can be wowed by the sight of the iconic rainbow over the Falls. Gulp.
Sports Bars Aplenty
Amid all those bro-ventures, the adrenaline and action, sometimes you just need some beer, wings and a game. And with western New York being the actual home of chicken wings — you’ve come to the right joint. You can cheer on your favorite team (“Go Bills!”) in a number of venues across the county, Including Judi’s Lounge, Dwyer’s Irish Pub and Mister B’s.
