It was 78 degrees in Buffalo yesterday so I wanted to get out and enjoy the warm weather. My hotel had a brochure about this attraction so I decided to check it out. I got in my rental car and drove about 30 minutes north to Youngstown. I didn't know what to expect and was not prepared for what I was going to see. The Fort Niagara State Park is right on Lake Ontario (offering a clear view of Toronto). The scenery was so peaceful and beautiful. The price of admission is $9 for AAA members. Totally worth it! The visitors center has a giftshop and musuem. A short movie provides background information on the history of the Fort and the French and Indian War. The exhibits and displays are informative as well. It took me about 1 hour to view the fort and all 16 points of interest. I was amazed how well everything had been preserved or should I say restored. I really enjoyed it and I'm happy that I went on a weekday. There were only 10 other people there. I got there at 2:30 in the afternoon and stayed about 2 hours. If you're in the area and looking for something neat and interesting to do... this is it!
