I'll be traveling to the falls the very last week of July into August. I was wondering if I should get a hotel by the falls for the whole trip or if there's lodging closer to the wineries or in a different area that's just as beautiful? We're staying by the falls for 2 nights right now, but are free to other options for the remainder of our nights. We will also be renting a car and don't mind traveling a little bit, but we always like exploring new areas and experiencing all they have to offer. I don't want any exclusive spa or resort type hotels but am open to any others. Any help y'all might have or recommendations on wineries or other day trips is greatly appreciated!
