Things to do in Crystal Beach

Things to do in Crystal Beach


We'll be 3 adults/3 children staying in a cottage in Crystal Beach for a week this July.

Has anybody stayed in this area recently? Is it nice? We were originally looking to stay in Niagara Falls area, but it was much cheaper to rent a cottage for a week, then to stay in a hotel for

Is there anything to do besides the beach? We'll be going to Marineland, The Falls & Clifton Hill, so we won't be spending every minute in Crystal Beach. Are there any restaurants (casual), movie theatre, miniputt, ice cream shops?

Thanks for any help. This is an amazing site!

Crystal Beach was once home to a very popular amusement park, but it closed many years ago and was replaced with a gated community.

It is still a very popular beach destination, but is almost exclusively a day use area, so there is only a couple of small motels, restaurants and snack bars. There is no theater, mini golf or anything similar. The closest theater would be Niagara Falls or Welland. Adjacent to Crystal Beach (and possibly walkable depending where your cottage is) is Ridgeway, which has several shops and a few restaurants.

July 1-4 is Fort Erie's Friendship Festival http://www.friendshipfestival.com/
