After the Falls themselves, Clifton Hill is one of must-visit areas in the city. During the day families and entertainment seekers flock to the area for fun and games, while at night it becomes a hub of glittering and sparkling lights.
Niagara is home to year-round fun, making it the perfect place to spend a winter getaway! Here are nine things to check out this winter on Clifton Hill:
1) The Niagara SkyWheel
A striking sight from any angle on the hill, the SkyWheel will have you soaring 175 feet above the Falls in climate controlled gondolas - perfect for winter sightseeing. Whether you ride during daylight or at dusk, you'll be dazzled with views of the Falls, Clifton Hill and the entire city of Niagara Falls.
You won't miss this building on Clifton Hill! Wonder into the seemingly sideways building with King Kong on top and discover some of the wackiest exhibits, believe it or not...
Discover famous movie scenes and celebrities up close and personal! Mingle with Taylor Swift, hangout with Johnny Depp or snap a selfie with some of the biggest stars in entertainment.
Enjoy 14 lanes of rockin’ 10 pin bowling located in a massive entertainment complex that becomes the epitome of nightlife. If you get tired of knocking down pins, enjoy the high-tech arcade or grab snacks at Boston Pizza - all located under the same roof.
Near the foot of Clifton Hill you'll discover the biggest, tallest, smallest, fastest, thinnest and every other 'est' you can think of at the Guinness World Records Museum.

One trip to Nightmares will give you enough scare to warm you right up! Once the location of a coffin factory, and with over 120,000 visitors who have chickened out, this attraction is definitely not for the faint of heart.
