A popular time to visit the famous Niagara Falls region is in the summertime and there is a whole lot more to do than just see the famous falls. Whether you are a newlywed or are visiting with family and friends, there are many things for you to see and do from wine tasting to various water activities, attending a concert or celebration and more.

One of the smartest things to do before your trip to Niagara Falls begins is to get a Niagara Falls Adventure Pass. This pass allows you to ride on the famous Maid of the Mist and take the white water boardwalk and it can be used on the WEGO bus to transport you around the Niagara Falls area. The pass is valid from April to October and there is a Magic pass available for the winter months with different options. If you want to see and do everything involving the falls, having an adventure pass is the best way to do it and it saves you from having to wait in line for tickets.

While visiting Niagara you can also take a moment and get back to nature at Butterfly Conservatory, while horseback riding, or on a  kayak tour on the Niagara River, which you can take from the US side of the falls. The kayaking trip takes roughly 2.5 hours and you will visit a few islands, a wildlife habitat, see a famous farmhouse, and more.

Visit nearby vineyards on your own, or let someone else do the driving on a guide tour. You can even work off some of the wine on a Niagara-on-the-Lake cycle and wine tasting tour as you visit four to five wineries by bike. The tour guide will deliver any wine you buy to your hotel so you don’t need to worry about juggling it on your bike ride.

During the summer months in Niagara, various celebrations and events take place with the most popular being Canada Day and Independence Day in the US. There are big parties, free live entertainment, and lots of fireworks over the falls in a spectacular display.
