03 Your Travels
Welcome to America's HatVisiting our neighbors to the north? Well there are a few things you'll definitely want to catch while you're in the Niagara Falls/Toronto area. Toronto is about an hour north of the falls, so it's a good day trip if you're staying in one of the hotels at Niagara. The city of Toronto has plenty to keep a tourist happy for several days so it's definitely worth it to grab a hotel room in Toronto and stay a while too.
The best of Niagara FallsThe two things that you must do while you're in Niagara falls are the Maid of the Mist boat ride and the Cave of the Winds. These were the most memorable things I did the whole time I was in Canada. An adult ticket for the Maid of the Mist is $14.50 and a child's ticket is $8.90. Admission into the Cave of the Winds is $10 for adults and $7 for kids. The Cave of the Winds even provides awesome souvenir sandals so that your shoes don't get wet, which is pretty awesome.
