Hi everybody,

We are planning to make a trip to the Niagara Falls on 5th May. We will be staying there till 8th May. We live in Ohio and will be driving to Niagara. This is our first time to the Falls, and we need your help in preparing our itinerary :)

I have browsed the internet and have found several Niagara day tours, if there is any other tours that you did and would suggest, that would be great! Also, which one's good- individual tours or package tours?

Other than these tours and rides, what are other nearby attractions?

Any nearby good restaurant recommendations?

I really wish I could give you some help on this one, but I tend to shy away from tours and guides and such. There was a guy last year though who decided to float over the falls and survived... Maybe he was starting a new trend? Just don't take your kids on that one.

I'm sorry I'm not more help, but maybe someone else will see this and respond if we keep it close to the top of the list. ;)

Heya ;)

Niagra isn't a huge place, but when I went a few years back, we just hung out in the village. There's stuff for young and old people alike to do things (just little shops - like furnature and candles and stuff - and stuff to go into like a hauted house - it sounds hokey but its cute). And if I remember correctly, Marineland is not too far away, but I'm not sure it's opening hours. Just type in Marineland in google and I'm sure yuo'll get something. It's like Seaworld with the whole dolphins and whales thing, and has rides and rollar coasters as well.

I know it isn't much, but I hope it helps!

Katie ;)

I have been to Niagra twice. Once with a big group and once with my family. When I was with the big group we went on one of the boats that takes you into the falls. It was a fun ride although you couldn't always see much becuase the spray from the falls was so big (they give you rain ponchos). I have no idea how much it cost... Then we spent the afternoon walking around. There are a ton of small shops with touristy souvenir types things and there are some specialty shops. I remember stuff being really touristy.

As for restaurants I remember a Hard Rock Cafe and getting ice cream from a street vendor. My family and I went across the bridge and we had trouble finding an inexpensive restuarant... Sorry that's not a lot of help.

You can walk across a bridge into Canada, just make sure you have identification and stuff with you so you can get back into the states. better yet ask them what you need before you cross. It has probably changed since I've been there.

It's been a while and this is all I remember... Good Luck
