Do you prefer staying in Niagara Falls or NOTL? Which is less crowded in summer?
Niagara on the Lake is a town so there are fewer crowds and less traffic, but downtown is usually busy with shoppers and theatre goers.
If you are coming to spend more time in Niagara Falls, especially with children, I would stay in the Falls since it's geared to keeping everyone entertained---waterpark, casinos, sites......You might also find the choice of accommodations could determine where you stay if you are coming as a family.
If you are coming as a couple to relax, visit wineries and avoid all the crowds and nightlife, then stay in Niagara on the Lake.
NOTL is such a pretty town in summer with amazing flower displays everywhere. I would prefer staying there in one of the lovely resort hotels. I think it would be less crowded with less kids.
