We are planning to stay 2 nights in Toronto this August as part of a family holiday visiting friends. We would like advice on the easiest way to travel to and from Niagara in order to see a view of the Falls and possibly the Maid in the Mist tour. We would prefer being independent than going on a coach tour, and do have the option of a hired car. If we drive, as opposed to taking a bus, where could we park and is this difficult? I would imagine we would only have 4 or 5 hours in Niagara.
