During the 80' and 90's I was a travel agent in SC and never once did a customer ask to go to Niagara Falla in NY or in Canada. I didn't really understand why this was...that is until I took my own family there during this recent Easter break.
What a disappointment it was!
Because I enjoy traveling I make it a habit of finding something good and/or interesting in every place I visit, however with this city there just isn't anything good to speak of.
I hate to say it, but this is by far the biggest rip off I've yet to see anywhere. While the falls are quite beautiful you need only see them and quickly move on into Canada. If you remain in the falls area very long you'll no doubt feel as though someone has robbed you before leaving. Talk about a city trying to get every last nickle from you...well this is it. You'd have more fun throwing your money away in Las Vegas.
While the Hilton hotel offers great rates if you purchased your hotel package through an American company before coming into Canada you will not find any further "good deals" once there.
While the Hilton is very clean and over all one of the areas better hotels...it may be of interest to know that the large pool complex that they offer is used daily as a baby sitting service. Don't go here with the idea that it will be nice to sit in the hot tub while your children also have fun in the pool. We thought this and to our dismay we found out very quickly that this wasn't going to happen. Remember most of these kids running and jumping every where...including those diving into the hot tub have been left by parents seeking other forms of entertainment and the hotels doesn't seem to care that this is openly done.
You could take a family of four on a four or five day cruise for less than you'd spend in a very short amount of time here.
Look for another vacation site...you don't want to stay here. Head on into Canada and see some of the other cities...like Toronto or Ottawa.
