Niagara Falls

Planning a trip to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Does this stay warrant a week's stay or will 3 or 4 days do and then move on? Thanks for the help.

We went planning on staying the week but actually covered the Falls area and local Vineyards in 3 so we stayed 4 and had a good trip. Things are quite high on the Canadian side but so beautiful it was really worth it.

X2. The falls can be done in 1-2 days.Picnic and hike around, 2-3 days.

Vineyards, add a day or two.

From what I saw, if you cross into Canada on the main bridge in your coach, plan on spending a half a day there. They look and they have one line for trucks, buses and RVs...at least from what I could see crossing in my car.

Is Dance Chick Gene or Gayle? Hee hee!

We have visited the falls area a couple times, as my DIL's family lives in Cheektowaga. When we do, we stay at Niagara Heartland RV Park in Gasport, NY. First, it is a Passport America CG and at $16 a night for full hook-up it is worth the stay. Nice and serene.

The ride to Niagara Falls via the fast route is 29 miles, and the ride via the scenic route, up to Olcott and on the Lake Rd (Erie Lake) is 48 miles but worth the ride. Be sure if you use this to stop at the Olcott park and just walk around a little. Niagara Heartland RV park is also a place to go visit the Locks in Lockport, NY. You can take the underground tour, which we did - very interesting, and you can even take a boat ride through the Locks. Of course there is The Falls. We visited both sides and took the TOAD across. No problem.

On the American side go to the Niagara Falls State Park and take the foot bridge over to Three Sisters Island for a close up view of Niagara River.

I think 4 or 5 days is enough unless you are going to TOAD it over to the Canadian side and tour around.

Happy trails.

Last year we got in the line with the trucks and the customs agent had a hissy fit and said we should have been in the car line with our 36 ft motorhomae. go figure...
