A luxurious night’s sleep by the falls

Experience the Falls and get wet!


This is a must-do tour when visiting Niagara Falls. Ride the Whirlpool Jet Boat and get soaking wet plunging into the amazing Class 5 rapids of Devil’s Hole while spinning 360 degrees. The friendly crew provide all necessary gear and life vests. Insider tip: Bring a change of clothes, you’ll need it. If you’d rather stay dry, ride in the enclosed Jet Dome boat and experience the falls without getting soaking wet.



Let’s go dancing

Envy Lounge is Niagara’s trendy LGBT club and has two floors, a large dancing area and a lounge area. Insider Tip: Go out on a Friday, grab a drink and hit the outdoor patio or head upstairs for a few games of pool.


Coffee Culture

Coffee Culture Cafe & Eatery, located in the heart of St. Catharines (a short drive from Niagara Falls), it’s a perfect spot to grab a quiet cup of coffee, hold a casual business meeting or take advantage of the cafe’s free wireless Internet access. Complete with front street patio for people watching.
