    Advice on Niagara Falls/St. Lawrence seaway area

    Looking to go to Niagara Falls (BF has never see it!) and meander down the St. Lawrence seaway. I havent been up there since i was a little kid. I'll take suggestions and feedback from anyone about the region...what might be fun or cool to see and do.


    Thanks.

    Take a spin through the Finger Lakes...beautiful country, lots of great wineries...way different than going through the islands...much mellower, and not nearly as touristy.

    the caves previously were under the falls. i think they had to close them due to Elliot Rodgers types.

    no, but they make you feel like it does. the guide yelled "everyone run to the other side of the boat, we're too close!"


    i believed it because i was ten.
