Question ID: 769116
I want to plan a trip to see Niagra Falls.  This is a half day
excursion.  I live in California.  What should I plan before and after
this trip to make it a nice 7-10 day vacation given that there is
really nothing near Niagra Falls to do? And what is the best way to
experience Niagra Falls?

Hello nutating-ga:

First of all, I would suggest must-see sites in Niagara Falls and than
I will suggest itinerary outside the Niagara Falls Area.

As you mentioned that it is a half day trip to the Niagara Falls, I
highly recommend the following four trips. You can have a slight idea
of how great the experience is by just looking at the ratings provided
by the actual visitors to these places.


Reviews at Tripadvisor
Reviews at Yahoo Travel

Beside the above mentioned trips, you might also be interested in ballooning.

Rainbow Air

Great American Balloon Company (flight of Angels)

Three Sister Islands


For a 7-10 day trip, I suggest selecting from the following routes.
All of the places included in the routes are known to be the ultimate
destinations for their individual characters.

Niagara Falls ? Finger Lakes ? Saratoga Springs
Approximate Driving Time & Distance (300 Miles; 5 Hours)

You can plan around this route. It also gives you an option of driving
along side Lake Ontario.

Travel Resources:

Niagara Falls ? Toronto ? Ottawa ? Montreal
Approximate Driving Time & Distance (500 Miles; 9 Hours)

This is another option where you can enjoy the three most distinct
cities of Canada. If you like cosmopolitan, there is no better route
than this in Canada.

Travel Resources:

Niagara Falls ? Thousand Islands ? Ottawa ? Montreal
Approximate Driving Time & Distance (500 Miles; 9 Hours)

This route allows you to skip Toronto and include the legendary
thousand islands en route to Montreal.

Travel Resources:

Niagara Falls ? Greater Toronto Area ? Agawa Canyon
Approximate Driving Time & Distance (530 Miles; 8.25 Hours)

This route allows you to explore attractions around Toronto and than
explore one of the most beautiful canyons in North America through a
variety of excursions.

Travel Resources:

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.

A few more thoughts:

The Buffalo-Niagara Convention & Vistors Bureau may have some more
ideas on things to do in and around the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area.
Might be worth visiting their site:

Also, depending on the time of year, a fun side excursion might be
toward southwestern New York.  For some reason, I'm thinking that
Chautauqua County might be a good trip.  It's about 90 minutes drive
from Buffalo and has some nice vineyards, artists communities, and
performing arts events (including the famous Chautauqua Institution ), if you're into that kind of thing. might be a good place to see what that
region might offer.
