Trip to Niagara - what else should we do & see?

Family with 3 children - 15,11,9 - travelling from NYC to Niagara Falls April 20th-22. Questions - will it be frozen over? (won't seem that interesting if it is). We were then planning on travelling a bit thru Canada - was planning on visiting Montreal for the "canada experience" but is there anything there for us to see and do with kids? Should we travel as far as Toronto? Anything to do and see there?

Any advice about travelling in Canada, to these specific areas, would be appreciated.

Thanks.

If you're planning a trip to Niagara, Ontario, I suggest that you post your request(s) in the proper forum (Niagara, Ontario; Toronto, Ontario; Montréal, Québec), instead of the Tremblant, Québec forum: you are more likely to get useful answers :)

(if you do go to Niagara Falls, I suggest you stretch it a bit until the quaint Niagara-on-the-Lake)

Ooops, ok. Not sure how to do that but I'll figure it out...

Thanks.

Hi;

By late April, most of the snow and ice will be melted. As a rule, the Falls themselves don’t freeze over. I believe it’s only happened once or twice.

“We were then planning on travelling a bit thru Canada - was planning on visiting Montreal for the "canada experience" but is there anything there for us to see and do with kids? Should we travel as far as Toronto?”

You seem to have your geography a bit mixed up.

Niagara Falls is approx. 410 miles / 660 km northwest of NYC.

Toronto is approx. 80 miles / 130 km northeast of Niagara Falls.

Montreal is approx. 420 miles / 675 km northeast of Niagara Falls, through Toronto.

Montreal is approx. 377 miles / 610 km north of NYC.

So, perhaps you were asking, should we go as far as Montreal ?

You could spend an entire week in Toronto, and still have plenty to see and do!

As Eirelover suggested, you should post your questions in the appropriate forums.
