Quebec to Niagara--train, plane or car ?

Jump to last reply

Our early October cruise ends with 2 days in Quebec. We 4 active seniors are now thinking about continuing on to Niagara Falls (bucket list!) and flying back home to LA from Toronto or Buffalo.
The train costs the same as a flight and takes 9 hrs. Then we still have to get a car to get to the Falls. The flight is only 2 hours but the drive should be pretty for mid October--but 11 hours without stops. Some concern for weather--too early for snow?
If we drive is it better to go via Syracuse or just stay in Canada all the way? Is it actually cheaper to fly home from Buffalo rather than Toronto? I looked on Kayak but it looks to be the same when bundled with other flights. We plan to stay on Canada side at the Falls--heard it is more scenic. Is is easy to get to Buffalo from there? Any help and hints will be greatly appreciated!
