Australian Family visiting Niagra Falls in an RV

We are visiting Niagra Falls in late September and are interested in what we shouldn't miss why we are in the area. Also we would love your insight into any great diners/restaurants, local fairs or markets, and any unique American experiences or must see attractions that are maybe not as well known.

Appreciate all help in making our trip memorable.

1. Re: Australian Family visiting Niagra Falls in an RV

TG: I am so glad to see your post. There is so much weird/quirky stuff on the US side of the Falls that most travelers just don't appreciate! Everyone flocks to the Canadian side but we have some true hidden gems. My picks:

The Prophet Issiah House (http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/38832)

Antique shops in Village of Lewiston (lots of restaurants, bakeries, etc. as well)

Lake Ontario/Old Fort Niagara

Niagara Power Vista

Aquarium of Niagara

The Falls (of course), attractions, and hiking trails

Our Lady Fatima Shrine/Basilica

Castellani Art Museum

Niagara Wine Trail

Restaurants:

Polish Nook (Polish)

Gadawski's (Polish & American)

Michael's (Italian/pasta/calzones)

La Hacienda (Excellent (the best, IMO) pizza/greens and beans)

Marketside Cafe (diner)

The Why Cafe (diner)

Bar/Grilles

The Topper Social Club (live music a couple days a week)

The Bakery

Wine on Third Tapas bar

Misc:

Frankie's Donuts for coffee and homemade (huge) donuts

Fashion Outlets Niagara (world-class shopping)

Wine Tasting Event Sept. 18 (visitbuffaloniagara.com/includes/…)

Niagara County Harvest Fest

Various Niagara County Events (olcott-newfane.com/…sep)

Peach Festival (http://www.lewistonkiwanis.org/ncpf.html)

There is also live music outdoors at various locations throughout the summer and early fall.

If your plans include Buffalo, you will have a lot more to add to your itinerary! Good luck and happy travels.
