Montreal OR Niagara Falls with young children

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for mid June. We'll be driving from southern NH. It's about 4 hours to Montreal, about 7+30 to Niagara. We have 7 days. Please help me decide which location is better for us.

Our boys will be 3 and 4 years old. Neither hubby nor I have visited either place before.

Montreal - we would drive thru VT, probably spend 2 nights in Burlington before heading across the border. Would visit Insectarium, Biodome, Mont Royal, and any other suggestions you have. Need hotel reviews...need family friendly, not fancy.

Niagara - we would stay on the Canadian side. Maid of the Mist, view the falls, try and find some parks/hikes and also some museums geared towards children. Also need lodging help here.

Which location would offer more to young children?

Any lesser known attractions we should check out?

Thanks!
