We took a road trip to Massachusets back in July. We decided to drive through Ontario and spend the night at Niagara Falls, on the Canadian side. We knew we wouldn't have time to do much before we had to hit the road for the next leg of the trip, so we splurged on a nice suite right above the falls. For dinner, we went to a Brazilian steakhouse near the hotel - one of the places where sit and eat while waiters swarm your table with skewers of meat. It wasn't as good as the ones we've been to in Chicago (Fogo de Chao is our favorite) but it was great to start eating as soon as we sat down--at 8:30 at night after a full day on the road.
In the morning we got up and had a nice room service breakfast while we looked out the window. Then we drove down to the park by the falls....we couldn't figure out a good route to just walk there because the hotels are up on a kind of bluff above the park. We looked over the top of the falls for a bit and then got back on the road. It really is an amazing sight and we're happy that we took the time to see it.
