Things to Do in Any Weather in Niagara

Niagara Falls is Perfect For Any Weather

Planning a trip to Niagara Falls in the near future? We hope you're excited!

A common misconception is that Niagara Falls is only a summer destination, and although visiting during those hotter months may seem more practical- a Niagara Falls getaway can be fantastic no matter what season it is. After all, the weather as we know it, is quite unpredictable and it does rain in the summer time too!

If by chance the weather is rainy, cold and miserable, don’t panic- there are PLENTY of things to do in Niagara Falls that don’t require much time outside! Don’t let the weather dampen your Niagara getaway, take a look at our list of Niagara Indoor Attractions that everyone can enjoy!

Top 7 Niagara Indoor Attractions

Butterfly Conservatory:

For visitors looking for a non traditional yet equally exciting attraction to visit, the butterfly conservatory is the way to go! This magical attraction features over 2,000 colourful tropical butterflies floating freely among the exotic blossoms and greenery. The Butterfly Conservatory is located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, only 10 minutes from The Oakes Hotel! Explore 180 metres of pathways winding through a lush, tropical indoor environment. A truly beautiful experience that can be enjoyed rain or shine!

The Bird Kingdom:

Visit the largest indoor free flying aviary in the world also known as the legendary Lost Kingdom. Open 365 days a year, visitors can discover exotic birds and animals in the tropical rainforest anytime! A perfect way to share a unique experience and to stay inside too!

Fallsview Water Park:

So, we know you wanted to reframe from getting soaked from the rain or snow, but you’ll still be getting wet if you attend this Niagara Falls Indoor Attraction. The Fallsview Water Park is located minutes from The Oakes Hotel. This indoor waterpark is simply amazing with 125,000 square feet of action-packed water fun. Featuring a mammoth play area, the massive 1,000 gallon tipping bucket, 6 waterslides and a full sized wave pool, you’ll forget that you were ever sad about a rainy day in Niagara! This kid friendly waterpark didn’t forget about the parents either- enjoy all of the fun or relax in one of the two oversized adult only Jacuzzis.

Clifton Hill Arcade Madness:

Clifton Hill is one of the most famous tourist attraction areas of Niagara Falls. The “hill” embodies all things fun for families, friends, couples and all who are interested in arcade games, moving theatres, wax museums, bowling and more! Although you may get a little wet walking a short distance from place to place, take advantage of the bad weather and explore some of the exciting Clifton Hill Indoor Attractions. Our personal favourite is The Great Canadian Midway, which is a 70,000 square foot emporium of games! From old favourites like Skee-Ball and Roll-a-Ball to new hits like Super 21 and Deal or No Deal, there is something for everyone.

Fallsview Casino Resort:

Press your luck with a visit to Canada’s largest Casino Complex, the Fallsview Casino Resort. The Fallsview Casino is located directly beside the Oakes Hotel and offers year-round entertainment, restaurants, shopping as well as a lot of gaming facilities for all 19+ to enjoy.
