    How to spend 48 hours in Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    From blogTO.com:

    Niagara Falls is the most obvious weekend getaway from Toronto, but also the one that’s easiest to get wrong. There are hundreds of tourist traps spread around the Queen of the Cataracts, most of which should be avoided. Taking in a bit of kitsch is almost requisite, but there’s little need to blow a ton of cash at Clifton Hill if you know what you’re doing.

    Here’s how to spend 48 hours in Niagara Falls.

    Niagara Falls for the Holidays

    From Southeast Michigan Metro Parent:

    With snow blanketing the shoreline right up to the thundering water, Niagara Falls takes on a whole different look and feel during the holidays. The snow and ice create a wintery scene that seems pulled right from a fairytale.

    For a memorable winter weekend getaway, take a shortcut through Canada to find your way to Niagara Falls. With a cool new holiday market on the New York side – complete with outdoor vendors and indoor music events – there’s plenty to lure southeast Michigan families to this neck of the woods!

    Chills, thrills at Niagara Falls in winter

    From CANOE Travel:

    Pack a parka, camera, sense of humour and an adventurous spirit when you head to Canada’s thunderous national treasure in winter.

    But the abundance of patience to battle crowds and traffic, and the big cash layout for accommodation needed in fairer weather are not required.

    Off-season in Niagara Falls has plenty to recommend it as my family discovered on a weekend getaway last month.

    A Weekend Getaway: Marineland, Niagara Falls, Ontario

    The 4 Mothers blog has a posting about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    Looking for a summer weekend activity with the kids? We recently took a road trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario to take in the scenery and spend a day at Marineland…

    The live show did not disappoint and the opportunity to learn about the animals from the keepers was unique. How many of us can say they were an arm’s length from an Orca? The boys spent much of the day on the rides. There are many rides for children and teenagers alike and the queues moved quickly and orderly. The highlight of the park was the gift shop. Despite the collection of standard issue, run of the mill, garbage toys (that cost a small fortune) the shop houses an impressive collection of books and art projects.

    Best Road Trip..The Niagara Parkway

    From Nile Guide (including pictures):

    When I think of Niagara Falls and its tourism industry I automatically think of two words; road trip. It really is the perfect spot to venture to for a quick weekend getaway from reality, as it is just a hop, skip and jump over to the United States border and an hour drive from the great city of Toronto. Thus is it safe to assume that those who venture to Niagara Falls are looking for a way to get the kids out and running around after the four hour drive from your home town (or twenty minute drive from down the road).

    A rewarding getaway on a tight budget

    From the Toronto Star:

    Problem: The family needs a weekend getaway in the middle of a July heat wave, but cash-flow is tight after repairs to our aging minivan.

    Solution: Use our Aeroplan and Air Miles reward points to “get out of Dodge” and bankroll a glorious weekend getaway in Niagara Falls.

    Maybe this isn’t quite as glamorous as converting your travel rewards for a flight to a foreign hot spot in mid-winter. But when the mercury is stuck at 35C in southern Ontario in July, a weekend escape to the Falls is almost as welcome.

    And for two youngsters who had never been there before, this was cause for real excitement.
