Anyone got any ideas for Niagara Falls/Ontario Canada
If time permits, make a short side trip from NF(Can) to the town of
"Niagara Falls on the Lake."
There is a beautiful scenic drive along a parkway (follows the river) from Niagara Falls Proper to Niagara on the Lake. Its maybe a half hour drive.
As you approach Niagara on the Lake, you will pass a very tall monument to General Brock and just before entering teh town, a reconstructed fort on your right.
The town itself is pretty much a tourist spot, but a total contrast to the wax museums, rides, and casinos of Niagara Falls. (Although of course both have their place!)
There are many great restaurants, pubs and interesting shops at Niagara Falls on the Lake. It is claimed to be one of Canada's prettiest towns. It is also the location for a theatre centre dedicated to George Bernard Shaw.
We live just about an hour from Niagara Falls on the west side of Toronto.
