    You certainly saw more locations than me when I visted the Niagara area, I was there only for a day so saw the basics. Great article for those staying longer and should be kept as a great reference post to check out all the area has to offer, really helpful pics to identify the locations.

      We go there every 2 years, so we have experienced most of the things to do in Niagara Falls. Glad you found the post informative.
