I am looking at travelling to Canada (Niagra region) in Sept/Oct this year. I have friends in Fort Erie so will be staying there some of the time but planning to use it as a base at other times. My daughter will possibly be with me for part of this trip too... I would like to go to New York city and we thought of travelling up to Montreal also and perhaps going back to Fort Erie via Ottawa. We are looking at bus travel, however we also like road trips. I would love to hire a car and drive.. but we are Aussies, therefore don't know if this a good idea, given we drive on opposite sides of the road and the road rules I'm sure would vary greatly. Any advice would be appreciated on mode of travel and places that are 'must see's'. We are looking at doing things the cheapest way possible but enjoyable.
