Motorcycle or scooters for Niagara Falls transportation

We are trying to plan a trip from FL to The falls next June. We will have approx 8 people on board which poses a toad problem. Needing to haul around 8 people in one vehicle would require a special vehicle that we don't have. Any ideas or experience with a situation like this??
A couple of us have motorcycles and with a 4 door Tacoma could possibly be an answer?
Or do we even need to worry with a toad? Just use buses or cabs?

Rent a van with the needed seating when you get there.

Do some research on nearby campgrounds. Some may have their own shuttles or access to the shuttle bus that runs in that area.

We are 35 mins from Niagara Falls. Go to the Casino regularly. June is a great time there. Once your at the Falls themselves most of the attractions are within walking distance,,, so,,, take the toad,,, make a couple trips,,, drop everyone off,,, problem solved.

I did use the SEARCH

I did use the search engine for "Niagara Falls" and read about 20 or so of the threads and found them very helpful.
We are unique in that we usually travel with 2 other families all in one coach. It helps us all afford the trips and not break the bank.

Thanks for any tips or tricks

We don't even pick up our new 2014 Hurricane 34J until Saturday and we are already planning trips, does this site have a name for that?

We went to Niagara Falls area this past summer w/o a toad. I rented a car using options offered on Costco's website. I thought it was not too expensive. We stayed at New York State campground Four Mile Creek. It is located right on Lake Ontario. It has electric sites only. The campground pass on the car allowed us to park for free at Niagara Falls State Park. We picked up the rental car on the way up to the campground. We enjoyed the area very much. Bring passports so you can visit Niagara-On The Lake in Ontario. It's a beautiful town. We took the Maid of the Mist boat ride and went thru the Cave of the Winds. It was fun!!!

We purchase a day trip tour of the American side and a night tour of the Canadian side. Both tour busses picked us up at our campground. Both tours were awesome. About four hours each. We did both in the same day.

Take the buss

There is a buss line called WEGO. very inexpensive, stops at several CGs on one end and the falls attractions on the other. It was so efficient and accessesable that we parked our Motorcycles and did the WEGO for 3days.

Www.wegoniagrafalls.com

I think the CGs were 2 mom and pops and a COA.

The KOA has a shuttle service, for a fee to the falls. And the KOA
is very nice campground. We like the deluxe patio sites up by the
office. It's a hike to the pool, but we had bicycles and we took
the car back and forth as well. I found no nicer campgrounds in
the area, and it is well located. Here is a link to their website:

WOW! You guys and gals are great I think we have decided to bring a toad and golf cart just in case but the wego sounds like it could work for us too.
