Just want some help on clearing up couple questions. We are taking Amtrak from NYC to visit Niagara Falls and we have our hotel booked on the Canadian side by the falls. After reading some posts, I think we will get off at Amtrak station on the US side, and the arrival time is 4;30pm, my intention is to use the that same night and do some visiting instead of possibly waiting a long time at the custom if we were taking Amtrak directly to Canada?
So is my best option will be getting off from NY side--take a cab to the rainbow bridge----sightseeing a bit----and crossing on the rainbow bridge(by walking or do I need to get a cab again?) and then after crossing maybe get a cab on the Canadian side to the hotel, and check in, and then come out to view the falls at night.
Does it sound ok? or do we have some alternative options as far as transportation between all these points?
Thanks for helping :) (by the way, the travel date is 12/26-12/28)
