Passports, Credit Cards, and Money
If you are crossing the U.S./Canadian border, you will need passports for everyone, including your children. Now, with that pressing question answered, what about money? If you are traveling from the U.S., you will find lots of places that accept U.S. dollars, but some that don’t. In locations that do not, you’ll need to exchange your cash for local currency. Another alternative is credit cards. Again, if you are traveling from the U.S. or anywhere outside of Canada, you will want to choose a credit card that doesn’t charge international fees when used outside your home country. Check with your bank before leaving.
Planning to Visit the Attractions
Obviously, the world famous Niagara Falls is your first stop, where you’ll gaze in awe at the majesty and power of the Falls. After you get the obligatory photos, what’s next? The Hornblower Niagara Boat Cruise should be your next stop. The infamous boat cruise takes you right up to Falls where you can not only see the power of the Falls but feel it! If you will be visiting during peak travel season, you’ll want to get your tickets ahead of time to make sure you don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Next up for the ultimate in family fun is the Clifton Hill Entertainment District. Here, you’ll find something for everyone to enjoy including the Niagara Skywheel (Canada’s largest) and the Niagara Speedway. In addition, you will find entertainment, dining, and nightlife options all within walkable distances. Visit any of the restaurants for delectable fare, try your hand at games on the Midway or a round of mini-putt, or explore the attractions like Ripley’s or the Wax Museum. Also nearby is the Butterfly Conservatory, Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, and Ziplining the Falls.
If you have another day to explore the region, you may want to head to Toronto for the day. You and your family are sure to enjoy the scenic drive by Lake Ontario, and once in the city there is much to explore. A visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame is a must, but so is Union Station and the CN Tower (world’s tallest until 2007).
