We're planning a few days in Niagara this summer (first time for all three of us) and are staying at the Hampton Inn north of the falls (about a mile or so away, on the Canadian side) because a friend got us a great deal. Other than seeing the falls, what else should we look to do? We're going for 4 days/3 nights in August, 2 adults and a 9 year old.
We've put this trip off for years because we continue to book cruises, but with the great hotel rate, we're making it a priority. We're not opposed to driving a bit either, if it's worth it.
