Your honeymoon may only last a few days or a week, but the photos can stop time! Niagara Falls is picture-worthy at every turn, each view is more breathtaking than the next. Add in top-notch restaurants, romantic wine tastings and luxurious spa experiences, and you have the formula for a truly spectacular honeymoon. Here’s what you need to know to plan a honeymoon in Niagara Falls USA.
Quality (Spa) Time Together
Start by unwinding at Niagara Crossing Hotel & Spa in Lewiston, which offers a full brochure of relaxing facials, massages and body and nail treatments. The Couples Royalty Package pairs a 30-minute therapeutic massage with 30 minutes of reflexology. The hotel’s romantic getaway package includes a complimentary bottle of champagne with your stay, plus a spa credit toward services like Swedish massage, the spa manicure and a salt glow.
The Sky’s the Limit
If you want to inject some major thrills into your honeymoon, book a trip on a Rainbow Air helicopter tour. You’ll view the Niagara and Horseshoe Falls from the lowest and closest point possible! The tour is named for the radiant rainbows that appear over the brinks of those two falls daily, so keep your camera handy. Over the summer, make sure to see the iconic fireworks display over the Falls at night, but in any season catch the Falls lit from within for a stunning illumination display every evening after dark.
A Couple That Cooks Together, Stays Together
Put your inner chef to work with a fun-filled class at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute. Topics vary, but chances are you’ll learn great techniques, interesting recipes and how to put some of those kitchen gadgets from your registry to work! Webster’s Kitchen also offers cooking and baking classes on Saturdays at its North Tonawanda location. Once you’ve mastered cooking, it’s time to learn about wine! The Niagara Falls USA region is home to multiple top-notch wineries, and the Niagara Wine Trail, USA is the perfect way to learn more about the varietals made locally. Make it into a fun-filled day or night by booking a car tour to take you to the various wineries you select.
Take the Plunge!
Get up close to the falls at Cave of the Winds at Niagara Falls State Park, where the iconic Hurricane Deck puts you within 20 feet of the base of Horseshoe Falls. It’s a perfect selfie opportunity in your special poncho and protective footwear. If you want to get even closer, board the Maid of the Mist boat tour where you’ll cruise alongside the base of all three major falls. It’s a beloved and historical part of visiting Niagara Falls, which is why presidents and royalty have all been passengers on the 600-person boat.
Dinner with a View
Once you’ve completed all the (wet) adventures for the day, dry off and head for a meal at Top of the Falls Restaurant. Located within Niagara Falls State Park on Goat Island, the restaurant is the only one to overlook the Falls directly. Choose from modern American specialties on the menu, produced in partnership with Taste NY, which supports locally made food and beverages. Want to see more of the park? You can choose from multiple hiking trails or kick back on a scenic trolley tour. The guided tour on the Niagara Falls trolleys will give you an overview of the park along with historical facts and anecdotes. Bonus: It’s air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.
We consider that a honeymoon more than well-spent! #loveNiagara
