Father’s Day in Niagara Falls

While there are a ton of things to do in Niagara to express your love and gratitude for dad, here are just a few suggestions.

If he’s a golfer you’re in luck. Niagara Falls and the Niagara Region offer more than 25 superb golf courses, many of them award winning. Many of them offer Father’s Day specials, so why not book a tee time and offer to be his caddy for the day?

For the fisherman father, the Niagara River is an acclaimed spot from any angler's point of view. Wonder on your own toward the upper Niagara Parkway above the Falls or joing a guided fishing adventure to make the most of your time. 

Anyone who loves the outdoors will want to be sure to hike the Niagara Glen or venture down the Niagara River Recreation Trail (by bike or foot)!  Top it off with a sail into the mist on Hornblower Niagara Cruises or a trip high above the Niagara River on the Whirlpool Aero Car!

Bond with dad on a thrilling adventure through WildPlay's Whirlpool Adventure Course.  This self paced course features a series of suspended obstacles and ziplines high above the Niagara Gorge and Whirlpool to provide tons of climbing, jumping and swinging fun!

For any history buff, why not step back in time and experience what life was like in early 1800’s. In Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the-Lake you’ll find two magnificent restored forts of the War of 1812.  Historic Fort George at the mouth of the Lake Ontario and the Niagara River and Old Fort Erie at the other end of the Niagara River both have events commemorating battles of the War of 1812.  A stop at the lovingly restored Laura Secord Homestead in the Village of Queenston keeps you in the historic mood. Costumed interpreters bring to life this most famous heroine of the War of 1812.

End your day with stunning illumination of the Falls beginning at dusk until midnight and a eye popping fireworks display over the falls at 10 pm - a definite not miss.
