Vacations, Staycations, Mancations & Daycations!
Posted by Kate McCaffery on

Winter is finally on its last legs and spring is so close you can taste it. Well, to us here at Chill that means spring vacation. Whether you’re looking for a guy’s weekend, a romantic day and night (or three), a family vacation or day trips around the province, we happen to have a few suggestions no matter who you plan on travelling with or how much money you have to spend.

Ok, so everyone has heard about the “mancation" or boys weekend to Vegas. If you don’t want to burn up two days of vacation time in airports though, try Niagara Falls on for size.

Save your money on pay-per-view fees and spend it in other ways. With televisions everywhere you turn, drinks on tap and games to play, the casino is one the best places to take in events like the upcoming UFC 128 on March 19.

Beforehand, restaurants like Copacabana and Braza Brazilian steakhouses serve up all-you-can-eat meat. You read that right. Visit the buffet then turn over your coaster to indicate you’re ready for your entrée. Gaúcho chefs come right to your table with spits of top sirloin, chicken, lamb, pork and salmon.
Nightlife in the area is not hard to find and there is no shortage of daytime fun either.

The traditional tourist trips under the falls are said to be most spectacular in the winter and spring; old standards like Clifton Hill’s haunted houses, Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum all appeal to those looking for a taste of Halloween in March. Or try out the skydiving wind tunnel at Niagara Freefall (It’s probably a good idea to try that before visiting the buffet).

Also in March, it is quite possible that the area’s newest attraction, the “Rink on the Brink" will still be open for skaters who want a picture of themselves skating over the edge of the falls. If not, a lot of the area golf courses are built on sand, which is excellent for drainage. Call around – some of them open as soon as the snow is gone.
