WHERE TO EAT IN NIAGARA FALLS
There is a lot of local food in Canada, but in Niagara it is mostly chains. For a better food experience, head out to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Sarah recommends The Cannery, Treadwells, and Kitchen 76 at Two Sisters winery or Boston Pizza in Niagara Falls. Tamara recommended Windows by Jamie Kennedy at the top of Sheraton on the Falls and Peller Estates.
BEST PLACE TO TAKE FAMILY PHOTO
Take a photo right outside of the Falls. It is easier to do in the summer than the winter but when you get into downtown, there is a main road that faces the Falls and there are plenty of places along the railing to get a shot in front of the Falls. Just beware, the railing is slippery so DO NOT put your kids up there. The other shot is to get on the boat and get a photo with the poncho on.
