Niagara Falls vacations are a very popular destination for people of all ages. Even though this small town is a favorite for honeymooners, almost everyone should make an attempt to see the place at least once in their lifetime.
There are plenty of things to do in Niagara Falls besides just seeing the thunderous falls. Over the years, many luxury hotels and fine dining establishments have opened up in the city. The majority of hotels offer travel packages, which include luxury lodgings, transportation, sightseeing and dining. A 3-7 day vacation is ample for most visitors to Niagara Falls.
For those who have never been to Niagara Falls on vacation, a tour package is highly recommended because then you will not miss anything. There are vacation packages for families that include golfing, honeymoon deals, weekend gateways, winery tours and nightly entertainment.
If you have a family and have time, then perhaps you can plan a vacation that is a lot cheaper on your own. The biggest advantage of Niagara Falls is that most of the attractions are located within a 2-mile radius. Many hotels even offer transportation back and forth to the various facilities.

After the children are done with the water activities, check out the nightmares factory or the house of Frankenstein where the experience will make you afraid to scream.
