We need a bit of romance in our lives these days, but if you and your significant other both work or have children to take care of; it can be difficult to get away for a week or more. We have plenty of great Niagara Canada getaways that are ideal for a long weekend. It's just enough time to rekindle the spark and remember why you fell in love in the first place. There are dozens of romantic things to do in and around Niagara Canada, but the five Niagara attractions below rate particularly high on the romance meter:
This charming town is filled with romantic restaurants, quaint shops and antique stores along Queen Street and seventeen Signature restaurants known for their fabulous food and wine offerings, but the real treasure is the beauty of the town and its many lovely settings for weddings, vow renewals or a quiet night for just the two of you. The gazebo overlooking the Niagara River gives you breathtaking views, and the residents love sharing their favorite spots for dining, dancing and romancing. If your Niagara Falls getaway to Niagara on the Lake is in spring, summer or fall, you'll be surrounded by the town's incredible displays of fresh flowers, perfuming the air and giving everything a pastoral beauty.
Everyone seems to have a favorite regional wine or a favored winery they visit more than the others. It's easy when there are so many beautiful vineyards and welcoming wineries in the area. There's something so romantic about driving along winding back roads and through rich, fertile valleys to discover a small winery and taste some of its finest offerings. Better yet, hire a driver for a Niagara Falls getaway that will take you on a tour of several local wineries. You and your honey can snuggle in the back seat between destinations or admire the scenery while sipping the bottle of bubbly you bought at the first stop on your excursion.
There's just something about the allure of the Niagara Falls themselves – they are nature's most glorious incarnation, filled with raw power and yet delicately beautiful. A ride on the Maid of the Mist has been one of the favorite Niagara attractions for generations. Slip into the rain ponchos and hug each other tight as you're bathed in the mists of the falls. At night, be sure to stop and admire the beauty of the falls illuminated in vibrant colors for an unforgettably romantic backdrop as you stroll through nearby gardens, or watch the lights from a dinner cruise on the waters of Lake Niagara.
Niagara attractions offer spa retreats for two that are the epitome of romance. Indulge in a Swedish massage for two, take a dip in the rejuvenating hot springs and relax as your worries melt away under the experienced touch of massage therapists. Local grapes from the vineyards are used for their antioxidant qualities to purify and nourish the skin. You'll feel so refreshed, you might want to dance the night away at a local club or simply slip into bed early.
