Choose the right accommodation
Before we get into talking about the attractions we need to talk about accommodation. It is important to choose a family-friendly hotel. Some of the hotels in the area, for example the Niagara Falls Marriott, put together special family orientated deals. Typically, these deals include things like free meals for the children and discounted access to many of the area’s best attractions.

Being able to come back to a nice hotel after a long day visiting all of the attractions is great. It ensures that everyone can relax and recharge their batteries and be ready for the next day’s adventures.
Visiting the Falls
Top of your to-do list has to be visiting the actual waterfalls. There are several ways to experience them, all of which offer a good experience.
For kids, The Maid of the Mist boat tour is a must. During the trip, you get to go right up to the base of the powerful waterfalls. It is exciting and is certain to turn into a treasured family memory.
Cool off in one of the water parks
On the Canadian side of the waterfalls there are two big water parks. They are both indoors, so are open year round.
Take a trip to Safari Niagara
If your kids love animals they will be blown away by Safari Niagara. This huge safari park is packed with more than 1000 different animals.
You and your children will also enjoy Marineland of Canada. There are plenty of live shows which give you the chance to see the dolphins, killer whale, seals, walruses and beluga whales up close. As you would expect most of the animals in this park are aquatic. But, there are also deer, bears, buffalo and elks to see. It is a great day out for the family.
Visit the Great Canadian Midway arcade
Finding things to do with the kids in the evening or to fill in time between tours can be a bit tricky. So, you are bound to find yourself visiting the 70,000 sq ft games arcade called Great Canadian Midway. It jammed with arcade games from yesteryear as well as modern-day options, so everyone is bound to have fun. Wild Safari glow in the dark mini golf is another great option for the family, in the evenings.
Take in a magic show
There is two fun and interesting magic shows to enjoy on the Canadian side. You can enjoy them at the Greg Grewin Theatre and the Mystic Stone Lounge. Both shows are suitable for older children. The Oh Canada Eh? Show is also great fun for families.
