niagara falls area

Jump to last reply

First weekend in August we'll be taking a trip up to Niaraga falls and the finger lakes. I've never been to Niagara Falls which is part of the reason we are going. I think it could be cool to stay right there with a fallsview room, but at the height of the season those rooms are pricey. Is it really worth it? Figure we don't spend that much time in the room.

I thought instead might be nice to stay in Niagara on the Lake as it looks quite nice and is not too far for the falls.

We don't mind spending money on a room but would rather conserve on the room and spend elsewhere. There are a ton of B&Bs in that area. But some look like the kids moved out and we'd be staying in Little Johnny's bedroom. I do like B&Bs and have stayed in many, but most I've stayed at have had separate inn keepers quarters.

If I am staying at a B&B I like the breakfast part to be great. Normally just have a bowl of cereal for breakfast so it is fun to have a really tasty breakfast.

Any recommendations? Would like to be within walking distance of the main part of the town. I have checked out a lot of places ans just saw Via Veneto. Place is small but looks nice and the breakfast looks fantastic.

Other things we'll do is Niagara falls, winery tours, maybe dinner or lunch at a winerie. We like to hike, easy hikes, so that or renting a bike could be fun too.

Any and all suggestions welcome.
Thank you in advance.
