how many days? :)


I'm planning a visit to the falls in Sept. and I was wondering how many days to stay?

Originally it was going to be a week, but then I started reading the postings and became worried about spending too much time in the area with nothing left to do.

My wife and I would like to see/ experience all the attractions without being rushed. We are in our 20's and are not into gambling but would enjoy all the other area attractions.

We are planning on arriving on a Sunday and staying to at least Thursday but can always stay longer if there is plenty to do.

Also can anyone tell me if going to the Hockey hall of Fame in Toronto is a good daytrip?

September is much less busy than the summer, so crowds shouldn't be a big concern. Depending on when you arrive on Sunday, it might just be a 'see the Falls, check out the area, have dinner' day. Monday could be your day for Niagara parks Commission attractions - Journey Behind the Falls, Maid of the Mist, White Water Walk, Aero Car, Butterfly Conservatory - all of which are available in packages and on the People Mover route. Depending on exactly how much you plan on doing, Tuesday (and maybe Wednesday) could be your 'in town' day(s) - Clifton Hill attractions and museums, Skywheel, Skylon, Bird Kingdom, Casinos (have a look even if you don't gamble), Cirque Niagara, Greg Frewin Dinner Theater, Helicopter ride, Marineland. Another day could be spent in Niagara on the Lake enjoying shopping, Shaw Festival theater, winery tours and Niagara Jetboat.

The Hockey Hall of Fame would be a great day trip, although I would suggest that if you don't think you will spend all your days in Niagara Falls, that you stay a day or two in Toronto. Great museums, shopping and attractions.

Being that you are in your 20's you might also want to hit a nightclub while you are there also.
