You’ve seen the famous photographs of water cascading between New York and Ontario, but postcards and computer screens don’t do it justice. You have to step away from the office to hear the thundering sound, feel the shaking earth, and soak in the mist of one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – Niagara Falls. So replace the conference room wallpaper with a backdrop that screams natural beauty. And while you’re here, your VIP event, awards banquet or executive dinner will easily be transformed into a group destination filled with unique activities and attractions.
For the ultimate “water park” experience, take your group on the Cave of the Winds Trip. You’ll suit up in souvenir rain ponchos and specially designed sandals, take an elevator ride 175 feet down into the Niagara Gorge, and stand just feet from the torrents of Niagara Falls on the Hurricane Deck. But if you want to get a little closer, the Maid of the Mist® Tour basically dunks its passengers under the falls. As one of the oldest attractions in North America, these coal-powered steamboats have been shuttling groups to and from the base of the falls since the 1840s, and they have no intention of stopping.
On the drier side of things, take a trip to the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. Just lace up your shoes and lead your group through miles of trails, climb a towering rock wall, or relax while enjoying a 180° multi-screen theater experience. You can also watch shark feedings or meet waddling penguins at the Aquarium of Niagara. And, our interactive Visitor Center Complex is available to anyone who wants to pick up a souvenir. As the home of the Niagara Adventure Theater and the park’s main gift shop and concession food area, the Visitor Center is definitely a place to stop before returning home.
Not only do fun activities play an important role during a group vacation, but so does food. Perched above the world-famous Horseshoe Falls is Top of the Falls Restaurant, and we’ll cater American-style culinary favorites while you view everything the park has to offer through floor-to-ceiling windows or from our outdoor dining decks. Located on Goat Island, the restaurant is open seasonally from May to September and can host up to 200 guests at a time.
Whether you’ve visited Niagara Falls in the past or are planning your first visit, you can be sure that no one in your group will be disappointed with this popular destination. Visit NiagaraFallsStatePark.com or call 716-278-1796 for more information.
