NIAGARA FALLS, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - With the holidays in the rearview mirror and summer vacation not far away, it can be easy to miss the opportunity that is Spring Break. Yet the weather, the timing and the lack of crowds make the March break an ideal time for a family getaway. And the Courtyard Niagara Falls has plenty of tips for how to best seize the opportunity for a vacation everyone will love.

As a premier family hotel in Niagara Falls, the Courtyard by Marriott appeals to parents and kids alike with its indoor pool, arcade/game room, two-room suites and free Wi-Fi. Plus its package options are designed with families in mind.

Travellers can delve into area attractions with the Kids Love Niagara Package (rates starting at $159.99 per night). The offer capitalizes on the hotel's location just minutes away from Niagara Falls' Clifton Hill. It includes 15 tokens for the Canadian Midway on Clifton Hill and four Ultimate Fun Passes for attractions like the Niagara SkyWheel and Glow in the Dark Miniature Golf, as well as accommodations, one dinner voucher at The Keg Steakhouse + Bar or TGIFridays and movie-and-popcorn night in the guest room.

Alternately, families can opt for the One Night Family Fun Package (rates starting at $189.99 per night), which includes accommodations at this top option among Niagara Falls hotels, breakfast, one dinner voucher for either The Keg or TGI Friday's, four SkyWheel passes and a movie-and-popcorn night in the guest room.

With packages, amenities and a location just a 10-minute walk away from the Falls, the hotel is uniquely positioned to reveal the best things to do in Niagara Falls, Canada. Topping the shortlist recently posted on its blog are nature-oriented activities. Guests, for example, can experience Nature Day at Niagara Falls Museums (offering tutorials on biodiversity, conservation and animal survival tactics), or invest in the Niagara Parks Wonder Pass, which affords access to Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara's Fury and the Butterfly Conservatory.

Visitors are also encouraged to arrive for March Break Adventure Camp at the Heartland Forest between March 16 and 19 for scavenger hunts, hikes and plenty of interesting facts on everything from frogs to "antlered animals." Or they can discover the habits of nocturnal creatures like bats and glow-in-the-dark scorpions at the Butterfly Conservatory.

History buffs, meanwhile, can travel back in time at the White Meadows Farms Sugar Bush Adventure. During each weekend through the end of March, families can check out period reenactments, tree tapping for syrup, face-painting and more.
