Looking for a unique yet iconic place to celebrate New Year’s Eve this year? Consider Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada. While I won’t be visiting Niagara Falls myself this New Year’s, I know it’s a destination that my kids will definitely enjoy visiting at some point. The falls are just one of those things you have to see at least once in your life!
From their press release:
“With an iconic backdrop you can’t find anywhere else, celebrate the coming of 2012 in style at Canada’s hottest destination for New Year’s Eve.
Whether being part of the most-watched bash in the country, grooving to the beats of some of the world’s best DJs or just kicking back in a luxurious fallsview hotel room for a romantic escape, Niagara Falls has what you are looking for this New Year’s.
“The clock striking midnight is just one small piece of the New Year’s Eve experience in Niagara Falls,” says Anthony Annunziata, Vice-President of Marketing for the Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa and the Marriott Gateway on the Falls. “Of course there is the party and concert in Queen Victoria Park, but Niagara Falls offers so much more that will make your entire celebration of the coming of 2012 a memorable one.”
More Canadians will tune in to Entertainment Tonight Canada and Global Television’s New Year’s Eve at Niagara Falls broadcast than any other New Year’s show in the country. Queen Victoria Park will be packed with 30,000 revellers, including ET Canada hosts Cheryl Hickey and Rick Campanelli, enjoying live music by Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs, Our Lady Peace and A Simple Plan. The party also includes fireworks at 9 p.m. and midnight. But while that party grabs the headlines, it is really only the surface of what there is to see and do in Niagara Falls.
Dance your way into 2012 at the Golden New Year’s Eve 2012 bash being held at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, located directly across the street from the Marriott Gateway on the Falls. The beats will be provided by some of the best DJs to be found anywhere, including Niagara’s own Christina Cruise, Manzone& Strong, Steve Aoki and the red-hot Swedish DJ and mixer Avicii.
But your New Year’s activities in Niagara Falls encompass more than just nighttime pursuits. Spend the afternoon touring through the picturesque vineyards of Niagara wine country sampling a selection international award-winning wines. Or entre 2012 stress free after a massage and skin treatment at Serenity Spa by the Falls.
“Niagara Falls is the place to be for New Year’s Eve,” says Annunziata. “From the party in the park, to fireworks over the Falls to dancing and dining in Canada’s most romantic destination, it has everything that will make the coming of 2012 a truly memorable experience.”
