Leaving Wednesday from Michigan to Burlington with a stop at Niagra Falls and Copperstown NY. Staying at the Doubletree, arriving Friday June 22 and departing on Thursday June 28th. Planning on attending the Chew Chew Fstical on Saturday. Is this an all-day thing? How much time should we devote to this activity? For Sunday until Thursday, I will be on my own from about 9:00AM until 3:00PM daily, so still trtying to put together some daytime activities for myself if anyone has any ideas. My wife will be with me in the evenings. We are planning on taking in a Lake Monster ball game as they play a farm team of the Detroit TIgers, my home team, while we are there. Also planning on trying an Ethan Allen cruise and dinner. Other then that still pretty open on plans. One question about hotels...when I go to Vegas (2-3 times a year) the majority of the time I am successful in getting an upgraded room by slipping the counter person a $20. Is this universal or a Vegas thing? I thought about trying to upgrade from our standard room at the Doubletree to a suite by using this. Assuming of course they have rooms available. Any thoughts. No big deal if it doesn't work, it is fun to try however. I have gotten a little intrigued about "Champ: the lake monster...any good touristy things related to that in the Burlington area? Any other last minute suggestions for an enjoyable Burlington visit? Thanks in advance.
