What's on in Niagara Falls this Valentine's Day
Niagara Falls is one of the most romantic places on earth, which is why it’s known as the honeymoon capital. This Valentine’s Day, rekindle your love for each other with a day where the focus is on the two of you. A little pre-planning will help set the stage. Choose one (or all) of these simple, yet meaningful Niagara-area activities and get swept up in romance.
Horse-drawn carriage ride
There’s nothing quite as romantic as cuddling up under the blankets on a beautiful, snowy day as you enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through picturesque Niagara Falls. Your ride through Queen Victoria Park will give you a unique view of the Niagara escarpment, gorge and river.
Depending on the length of your ride (15 – 60 minutes) costs will run between $40 – $190. You should book early for Valentine’s Day to ensure you get your preferred time slot. Carriage rides go from 4pm – 11 pm. You can buy tickets at Queen Victoria Park Gift Shop.
Niagara Falls is Ontario’s premier wine area, and a romantic idea for Valentine’s Day. But how do you choose which winery to visit? With the Wine Country Touring Pass you don’t have to. You’ll get VIP access to four of the area’s top wineries, which will allow you to spend the day touring and tasting Niagara’s unique wine offerings.
For $25 per person you’ll receive access to Peller Estates Winery, Trius Winery, Wine Country Vintners Outlet Collections of Niagara and Wine Country Vintners Downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake. Just call 1-888-673-5537 to purchase your pass and then book your tour times with the Guest Relations Team. Bring your confirmation number on Valentine’s Day and pick up your pass at any of the four locations. Click here for more information.

Don’t forget about dinner
Make sure you book a special dinner as part of your Valentine’s Day plans. Coco’s Terrace Bar and Grill is the premier steakhouse in Niagara Falls, located across from Fallsview casino and just steps from the Falls.

Contact Coco’s early to reserve your table for Valentine’s Day. You can even ask your server to help you coordinate a special touch to your dinner – like having roses waiting at the table. Remember, it’s the thought you put into the day that will make Valentine’s special and show your loved one that you care.
