Annie Edson Taylor was down on her luck in 1901 and looking to earn some cash. She decided to take a circus showman up on his 50-year-old challenge, strapped herself into a barrel, and went floating down the Niagara River. Seventeen minutes and 174 vertical feet later, the 63-year-old schoolteacher came ashore with only a cut on her forehead and said, "No one ought ever do that again." Noted. We had something a little more comfortable in mind, anyway.

Overlook the Falls from a safer, drier viewpoint—like from the bay window of a queen room at The Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario, for a one- ($129) or two-night stay ($199) for two, Sundays through Thursdays between now and June 28. Or, opt for a one-night stay for two on Saturday, June 2, 9, or 23 ($169) or Sundays through Thursdays between July 7 and 19 ($219).

All four options include accommodations in a Falls Side Room and barrels of other perks.

Roll out of bed in the morning and ride the elevator down for a made-to-order breakfast for two at the on-site Applebee's restaurant, before taking the plunge: Just outside the hotel, the spectacular Horseshoe Falls, as well as views of the American Falls, await.

Afterward, explore the fertile microclimate vineyard lands below the falls on a four-winery tasting for two. Keep the tour rolling through the factory where dreams are made (in chocolate form) at Chocolate FX. This artisanal chocolate molder makes more than 85 cocoa concoctions, and you'll receive two samples of delicious chocolate-dipped strawberries.

As the sun falls, ride the complimentary shuttle from the Oakes Hotel to the award-winning seafood and steakhouse Remington's of Niagara for a romantic three-course dinner. To cap off the night, head to the Rainbow Bridge to Niagara Falls, New York, and enjoy a $50 voucher to spend at the Seneca Casino. Just don't go overboard; even Annie Edson Taylor knows better than that.

  • "WOW! You won’t be able to keep the word from your lips at Niagara Falls."
