En route:

Fingerlakes, Corning, Letchworth, Allegheny are all worthwhile detours.

Attraction wise:

Must sees are Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, Gorge Trails, Helicopter Tour (Rainbow Air), Whirlpool Jetboat (Lewiston, NY), fireworks and illumination over the Falls.

Entertainment wise:

Friday nights there is a free live music series on Old Falls Street sponsored by the Hard Rock.

Dominic's Little River Bar & Grill usually has some sort of live music on Sat/Sun. 4 Points by Sheraton on the River also used to have music on the patio but not sure if they still do...

Same thing with most places in Lewiston (10 min) and Wilson, NY (25 min). Both are waterfront towns and there's almost always something going on.

Seneca Niagara Casino

Wine tours are available just north of the Falls on the Niagara Wine Trail.


Wine on Third for dinner & drinks ( I've heard service has slipped a lot in the past few months since a change in management, definitely check the current reviews on TA).

Western Door Steakhouse in the Casino (upscale)

La Hacienda for a true Niagara Falls experience

Gadawski's Friday Fish Fry (but all of their food is good)

Griffon Pub for American fare

Viola's Subs or Mariposa's for an Italian Steak n' Cheese

Marketside for breakfast (nice diner) or the Why Cafe (weird and wonderful)

Donatello's for good, greasy take-out

Good luck & happy travels!

Need to make a correction, the TGI Fridays music series is free and takes place on Old Falls St. The Hard Rock ALSO has a live music series on Fridays.
