But what if your goal is to make this year’s New Year’s Eve celebration unlike any other you’ve ever experienced? It’s not too late to do what you’ve never done before. New Year’s Eve in Niagara promises to be an exciting and unforgettable time. Here are just three of the many reasons why you should consider booking a trip to Niagara for New Year’s Eve.
No, it won’t be a balmy 70 degrees Fahrenheit on New Year’s Eve in Niagara, but the Niagara Peninsula does enjoy a milder climate than many other places that are as far north. While you’ll still need to wear layers or bundle up to get from place to place, you’re not likely to have to face an ice storm, blizzard, freezing rain, or even a chilling wind. The temperature will probably sit somewhere between 30 degrees and 45 degrees, which will make being outdoors invigorating and curling up with your beloved in your hotel room once the clock strikes midnight even cozier.
Then, there’s also the fireworks.
Fireworks have long been one of the most engaging reasons to visit the waterfalls at night during the summer months, but New Year’s Eve is also a night where visitors and locals can get an eyeful and an earful of wonderful fireworks as they light up the Falls. Because it’s a holiday, the New Year’s Eve show is also always one of the year’s best. Holiday lights and the light from colorful bursts of exploding gunpowder — it’s all part of New Year’s Eve in Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls is also home to one of the most magical experiences in all of North America, thanks to local legend and International Grand Champion of Magic, Greg Frewin. This year’s New Year’s Eve bash with Frewin starts off with a cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m. that’s followed by a Las Vegas-style buffet at 7:30 p.m. Greg Frewin’s world-class magic show will commence at 9 p.m., and dancing at 11 p.m. will take you all the way into the New Year and beyond. Guests will also receive champagne to toast at midnight. The whole event is just $79.95 a person.
Whether you ring in the New Year with your eyes on the waterfalls or you take in the magic at the Greg Frewin theater, Niagara is the perfect place to say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016
