My husband and I are planning a short visit to the Falls in late September on a Saturday.I think we would like to view the Falls from the Canadian side but we will have a rental car and intend to stay the night on the US side.
My questions are;
1) Could you suggest somewhere on the US side where we can park the rental car and stay for a night?
2) Re above, we need somewhere which allows us to walk to the Canadian Falls, and back again - is this possible?
I've found a good rate for the Howard Johnson 'Closest to the Falls'.
From the map the HoJo appears just as close to the Rainbow Bridge as the Seneca or Sheraton at the Falls?
Would you agree and what do you think of the HoJo in general?
We are happy with somewhere basic, clean, with guest parking and close to the Bridge.
3) I think we would like to do the Hornblower boat trip and another activity, perhaps the Cave of the Winds or Journey behind the Falls. If we were to arrive at our base for 10am would we be able to get to the Falls area, do these activities and return by late evening (around 7pm)?
I'm not sure what time it gets dark in late Sept.
Thanks in advance.
