Niagara for Two: A Romantic Night Out for Couples in Love
No matter how long you’ve been with your significant other — be it five dates or 50 years — you should always make time for date nights. Research by the Marriage Foundation discovered that one night every month devoted to a partners-only date improved a married couple’s longevity by 14 percent. Date nights give you a chance to communicate with your partner, to have fun, and build a stronger bond with the person you love. Ultimately, date nights allow you to rekindle your romance — and there’s no better place for romance than Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls couples’ packages are affordable, approachable ways to get time alone with your loved one and reaffirm the love you have for one another. This guide will help you plan a night of romance with your significant other, so you can fall even more in love.
Excitement at Fallsview Casino Resort
There is nothing quite like the rush of adrenaline to bring two people close together. That’s why Niagara’s best gaming club, Fallsview Casino Resort, is an excellent starting point for your date night in Niagara Falls. The floor offers 200,000 square feet of tables, machines, and more, giving you ample opportunities to take home a windfall — or splurge on an even greater couple’s vacation in Niagara Falls.
There is plenty of diversity to hold your interest and keep your heart racing on your romantic night out. If slots are your game of choice, you can choose among 3,000 machines, ranging from a single cent to $100 per pull. You can also enjoy machines for reel poker and video poker; however, if you prefer the real card game experience, you can find a spot at more than 130 tables around the floor. In addition to various forms of poker, you can try your hand at baccarat, blackjack or casino war, as well as a variety of non-card games, like roulette, craps, and pai gow.
If you ever get tired of the flashing lights and bells — or if your wallet is too small to contain all your winnings — there are other romantic adventures within Fallsview. The casino theater boasts an astounding 150 shows per year, and with 1,500 seats, it almost always has room for two more. In the coming months, the venue will host some big names in music, including CCR, Melissa Ethridge, Roger Daltrey, and Sarah McLachlan, all of whom provide a thrilling and tender experience for date night.
Dinner With Romantic Views
Every good date night includes food. Fortunately, as a region noted for its fresh and delectable produce, Niagara Falls is a center for amazing cuisine. Regardless of whether you are dining in a hotel buffet or at a Michelin-starred restaurant, you can be certain to enjoy high-quality food.
Still, you should strive to find something special for Niagara date night — and outstanding views will set the mood perfectly. Only a handful of restaurants offer uninterrupted views of Niagara Falls, so you should make a reservation for two at the following places:
- Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra. Perhaps named in honor of Rainbow Bridge, which connects American and Canadian sides of the falls, the Rainbow Room looks onto the thundering waters of Horseshoe Falls. The internationally known chef Massimo Capra uses his familiarity with local Ontario ingredients to craft fresh, exciting plates and drinks.
- Windows by Jamie Kennedy. Another renowned chef to build a leading restaurant in Niagara Falls, Jamie Kennedy’s Windows offer several walls of floor-to-ceiling glass for an unbroken picture of Horseshoe Falls. Paired with Kennedy’s marvelous cuisine, the views make for a very romantic night out.
- Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room. You can pay for a trip up to Skylon’s observation deck, or you can enjoy a meal in the dining room while enjoying a birds-eye view of Niagara Falls and beyond. The panorama is so gorgeous you might almost forget to eat — until the mouth-watering food arrives.
Passion and Privacy All Night Long
After a few hours of excitement and some unforgettable food and drinks, you should finish your night out with some time together. As the crowds retreat indoors for more entertainment at casinos and clubs around the city, you’ll likely find the parks and pathways around Niagara Falls calm and comfortable for a quiet, moonlit walk. Year-round, Horseshoe Falls is lit by colored lights after the sun sets, creating an ethereal atmosphere perfect for love, and during the summer months, you might even enjoy a firework show during your stroll. The explosions of color should mimic the feelings of passion and devotion you harbor for your significant other.
While you walk, you might enjoy seeing Niagara from different perspectives after dark. If you chose to eat somewhere besides Skylon Tower, you might pay for a night ride up the elevator to the observation deck. Shrouded in shadow, the Niagara region is even more beautiful after the sun sets. You can also see nighttime Niagara from on-high by riding the SkyWheel, the enormous observation wheel on the edge of Clifton Hill. Eventually, you should retreat with your loved one to your hotel room, where you can end the night in a sumptuous bed — if you booked a top-tier hotel through Niagara Falls Hotels, that is.
