Quick Niagara Falls trip... worth it? how to make it happen?

Jump to last reply

We're driving to Toronto from the midwest, and the fastest route will have us going right past Niagara Falls. Our plan is to make it a very quick stop - less than an hour - just so DH can see the falls. I've been there before and he would like for us to return some day with our kids, but for now we figured it's worth a stop since we're right there anyway. It would be a Saturday morning before lunch.

1) is such a brief stop doable? (DH is starting to have doubts, though I believe it's still worth experiencing)
2) any suggestions where to park so we can walk to a good view of the falls on the Canadian side?
3) Any suggestions of routes to take? It looks like the Fort Erie border cross might be less chaotic, but is that too far out of the way?
