First Timer Trip Report - Oct 3-5

Weather was fabulous.

Stayed at the Marriott Fallsview. We did the two night package that includes breakfast buffet for two for two mornings and $75 dinner credit at Marriott restaurant. We had a 6th floor room. Very nice room and great view.

We visted the casino next door our first evening. The next day we drove to Niagara On the Lake in the morning. Beautiful town with flowers everywhere. We enjoyed the morning very much. We rode the Maid of the Mist and rode the People Mover to see the views from all angles. People Mover is a bus that drives back and forth and stops at several locations. Cost is $7.50 per adult for the day and only ran to 5:00pm. We bought our tickets for Maid of the Mist and walked on with no wait.

We loved Niagara Falls. Very clean, safe, great views, great flowers, easy to drive around. Bus driver told us that we were visiting during a very slow dead time. Good for us!

Friday morning we checked out of the Marriott at 9:30, drove to Rainbow Bridge, crossed and were in Niagara Falls, NY state park by 10:00am.

It is true that the New York side is nothing like the Canadian side.

I did very much enjoy the more natural park feel on the NY side and I am very happy that we spent a couple of hours enjoying the park.

We rode the trolley ($2) per adult that makes about 6 stops.

I think people are missing out if they choose to not visit the NY side.

We loved Niagara Falls and felt that 48 hours was about the right amount of time to see what we wanted to see.
