If you're visiting the Niagara area be sure to stop by at Fort George and you'll need lot's of time to see everything too. There are live events/demonstrations happening within the fort fairly regularly such as fife & drum, musket demos & shots, cannon demo & shot and much more. The displays/exhibits were informative, interactive and enjoyable and exactly what we were looking for to learn more about the War of 1812. We ran out of time to see everything but we did get into the kitchen where ladies in period costume were cooking over an open fire, they made us some cookies! And they were baking squash bread and pie! Too bad we couldn't have stayed longer as I would have loved to try those. All of the staff/actors in period costume loved getting questions and had loads of information. Lot's of fun and you're sure to learn something new - I'll be telling everyone I know about it.
Also - there are ghost walks here on some evenings. We went on a Wednesday night and Jared our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere and storytelling were incredible - even though I didn't see any ghosts that night, it really felt like they were there. Just the right combination of spookiness + history. Highly recommended (unless you're scared of the dark!)
