Niagara Falls is a great place to visit so plan on arriving early and / or staying late to travel and experience the local sites, near by vineyards and other local attractions.  As part of the Niagara Region, Niagara-on-the-Lake is a charming historic town that is reachable by car.  the drive on the Niagara Parkway river side road will bring you past the Butterfly Conservatory, Floral Clock and near Fort George to make a day of it.  Walking distance from the hotel offers many downtown attractions great for all ages.   You can finish off each night of your stay watching the beautiful fireworks over the falls.
