    The first week in August I will be in the Noagra Falls area for my honeymoon. I'm staying the Old Stone Inn. Last time I came up it was winter time and I couldn't do a whole lot. What stuff should I do? I heard there are a lot of good wineries in Niagra Falls.

    Hey Rox,

    So glad to see you are coming back. Congrats on the marriage!!!

    One thing you HAVE to do is the Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls. Chris and I went the first time a few years ago when relatives were visiting and it was so amazing!!! You will love it. And it is not expensive at all. Maybe we can hook up again for dinner maybe?? If you want some other ideas, let us know.

    I definately want to do the Maid of the mist tour. One thing I know I am doing is this [link=http://www.whirlpooljet.com/]Whirlpool Jet thing[/link]. One of my friends bought us tickets on that, it looks super awesome to ride!

    I will have to talk to Ginger and see if she's cool with us meeting up again. I will let you guys know by the end of the week.

    Whatever you do, don't do Journey Behind the Falls. It sounds cool, but you can't see anything down there. Big waste. Some of the museums on Clifton Hill are pretty good. I particularly liked the movie star wax museum. Star Wars section sucked, but the Indiana Jones display out front was awsome.

    Hey, only if you guys have time. You are on your honeymoon and there is a lot to do and see around the Niagara region. Maybe the last thing Ginger wants to do is hang around with a bunch of people she doesn't really know and that is totally understandable. But if you do have time for some dinner or something, I am sure there are a bunch of us who would love to meet up with you.

    Hi Terry

    Here are a couple websites that may be of some help...

    [link=http://www.cliftonhill.com/]Clifton Hill - www.cliftonhill.com[/link]

    I would suggest:
    Maid of the Mist (Deb and I loved it. Gives you a very different perspective of the falls.)
    Butterfly Conservatory
    Marineland Canada
    Niagara Falls Helicopter (Can be expencive, but very fun)
    Spanish Aero Car (If you are doing the jet boat, the Areo car is close by.)

    [link=http://www.friendsoffortgeorge.ca/ghost.htm]Fort George Ghost Tour - www.friendsoffortgeorge.ca/ghost.htm[/link]

    Deb and I realy enjoyed the ghost tour. If you do go on the tour, stay at the front of the tour group when going into the "tunnel", it's worth the extra spookyness on the way out ;).

    If you are looking to do a wine tour, there are many to pick from. You can go on private tours and come and go at your preference. Or do the group thing and take a tour bus to a few places in the Niagara region. There are many websites to pick from, but here is one just as a suggestion [link=http://www.niagaraworldwinetours.com]www.niagaraworldwinetours.com[/link]


    Edit: I'm going to talk to my sister (who works at one of the Hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake) and see if she can offer any suggestions for you guys.

    Thanks I am sure I will. I had a great time last time I was up there in the winter. This time it should be more fun since it's summer time and I don't have to be all bundled up.
