We had a few hours to kill in the afternoon after spending the morning and lunch in Niagara on the Lake, before heading to the Falls.
I'd read about Fort George and it's importance before and during the War of 1812, and so wanted this on our itinerary.
Our visit ended up being one of the big highlights of our trip. This was mainly due to the staff and the talks and re-enactments they performed, which were highly entertaining. An amazingly talented musician/performer gave a talk/demonstration of the music of the period, playing a multitude of instruments; we watched a demonstration of musket fire, and then listened to a talk about the War and the role that the Fort played.
The kids also got to explore and learn about life there as it would have been 200 years ago.
We ended up spending longer there than we had planned, and all for the sum of $24 for two adults and three children. Compare that to what you'll spend on Clifton Hill in the Falls!
