Niagara Falls has two factory outlet malls. Canada One is located on the Canadian side and Fashion Outlet of Niagara Falls may be found in the USA.
Niagara Falls has so much happening in the tourist area that choosing what to do next may not be easy. Activities are plentiful on both sides of the border, but if you would like to take a break from all the excitement going on around the falls and maybe hunt for bargains at a factory outlet mall, you are in the right place. On both sides of the border, in Canada and the USA, outlet malls may be found not too far from all the entertainment happening around Niagara Falls.
Canada One Factory Outlet
As the name indicates, Canada One is located in Niagara Falls on the Canadian side of the border at 7500 Lundys Lane. The outlet is quite a hike on foot, over two miles from the cascading falls. First you have to climb to the top of Clifton Hill, which is the steep busy tourist street, buzzing with entertainment and life, turn left onto Victoria Avenue, which continues onto Ferry Street and into Lundys Lane. The outlet is on the left side, just after you cross the bridge over the Queen Elizabeth Way. Unless you are staying at one of the many hotels along the way, you may want to save your energy for shopping and catch the Falls Shuttle. For a fee, red line bus route will take you to the factory outlet from Clifton Hill. If you are going by car, plenty of free parking is available at the mall. The Canada One factory outlet has 40 brand name stores, located in an outdoor square. A fast food restaurant is located at the outlet and other restaurants are close by. The stores are open every day, except Christmas Day.
Fashion Outlet Niagara Falls
Located on the USA side of the border, the Fashion Outlet Factory is huge, with more than 150 stores, situated inside a large mall and outdoor square. There is a food court inside the mall and several restaurants around the outlet area. Parking is free, but may get busy on weekends as it is a popular destination for Canadian shoppers. The Fashion Outlet mall is located several miles from the downtown area of Niagara Falls at 1900 Military Road. Visitors without transport may take the local bus, run by Niagara Frontier Transport Authority. Route 55 will take you to the outlet shopping and may be boarded on Niagara Street. The factory outlet is open everyday, except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving and has late night shopping all week except Sundays.
Some hotels offer shuttle services to both outlet malls. If you are staying on the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls and would like to visit the factory outlet on the USA side, Fashion Outlet offers a cross-border shuttle service from the Fallsview Casino and several of the major hotels for a fee. You must have a passport to cross the bridge from Canada into the USA.
