    • From BUF Airport to Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario

      Buffalo Dec 15, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi everyone, I have always wanted to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario and I guess the day has come now....I know it kinda cold right now this time of winter and thinking to travel when springs comes or summer time. My question is which season are pretty good to visit the Niagara-on-the-Lake....I hope this will be answered by the person who lives there or the person who had seen both season and had good experience. My second question is since I will be coming via a plane to Buffalo Airport and from there I had to take some sort of transportation. Is there any reliable cheaper transportation that takes me straight to the lake? I made a little research and found this website claiming that they will provide a sightseeing tour without no waiting charge it sounds pretty good to me but just want to make sure if I have another option. Thank you so much for your relevant information and time.

I've heard NJ Transit Bus is the best way, but how do I do that and how do I know ahead of time that it's possible? We'd get out of the show around 11pm and Penn Station seems to be where we'd get the bus. I'm not a city! Thanks!

We decided to make a one night stop in Niagara Falls and made a hotel reservation on the Canada side. I have been reading "horror stories" of incidents that have happened crossing to/from both sides, and very few good stories on that site. We are law-abiding U.S. citizens and are professionals. The horror stories have me/us second-guessing a trip to Canada to see the falls. Are there more "good" experiences than "horror" experiences out there about crossing the border?

    • U.S. or Canada side?

      by rcenturion Online Now May 19, 2012 at 7:49 AM

      We are travelling in late July from Miami to Buffalo. We are spending the first night in Buffalo then heading to Niagara Falls. I have read that the Canadian side is "nicer" but we are open to staying either on the U.S. side or the Canada side. A relative told me that due to the exchange rate and lower taxes, he recommends the American side.

      But, after we spend 2-3 days at Niagara Falls, we wll be heading to Toronto for a couple days so we will be in Canada eventually anyway. I think the tours we will be taking originate on the Canada side, so that is another reason to stay on that side. We are looking for hotels in the100-$150 range.

      What does everyone recommend?

      My brother is planning a last minute wedding, so in a few weeks he will be married at Niagara Falls. I am not familiar with the area, but I understand his ceremony will be on the NY side in or near Prospect Point. We would like a place, hopefully within walking distance for the immediate family to stay. It doesn't need to be fancy but clean and nice. My brother had heard of the Red Coach Inn, which looks good on the website. He also mentioned Quality Hotel & Suites, but some of the reviews mentioned bed bugs--eeeekkk! Any hotels or B & B's you would recommend?

      We also would like a place to eat a dinner the night before the wedding and also a spot for lunch. It doesn't need to be super fancy but the dinner should feel special. Any recommendations? Thanks!
