Highly recommended

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada:
Orchards and vineyards, peach and cherry trees blooming everywhere. Almost every home has at least one cherry tree in their yard and the limbs are thick and heavy with cherry pink blossoms. All the vintage buildings date from 1820 (rebuilt from the time American forces burned the town in 1812.)

Niagara Falls: The majesty of the natural wonder oddly contrasts with casinos, The Hulk/ Spiderman/ Frankenstein, Dracula/ Ripley's Believe It or Not/ horror houses, and the Hard Rock Cafe across the street.

Friendly and helpful folk, delicious food. Lots for families to do in the area.

Indeed what great photos. Glad to hear it is nice there. My brother-in-law and his new wife as of tomorrow are going there for their honeymoon. Hope it is still nice when they arrive. It is raining buckets today and tomorrow for their outdoor wedding.

I hope you had time to visit Buffalo too!

Alas, I only moved through the airport. Treebeard got a tour of Roswell Park Cancer Institute though as well as a tour of the city.
