    My g/f and I are thinking of heading up to Niagra Falls for Valentines day weekend and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? What I am looking ofr is things to see(besides the falls /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif ) and things to avoid. I have been looking into hotels and I see the SHeraton, Hilton and Brock Plaza offer fallview rooms.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!!

    On the Canada side the falls are much nicer. I'd say to go to the casino in Canada as well. One thing you must do. If you go downtown on the Canada side, there are alot of "tourist traps". Things like wax museums, alien encounters and other hokey attractions. There is this one "haunted house". On the outside it seems to be lame and not worth your buck. Let me tell you it was the freakiest thing I've ever done. We went in a group of 6. They give you a password to shout out if you can't take it. 3 people didn't make it through. It scared the crap out of everyone. It's all about the fear of the unknown as opposed to things like mannequins with bloody limbs.
    You go through the thing in complete darkness and your paranoia will get to you. At one point the walls start closing in, the room shrinks to the size of a closet and it is pitch black. Then people that you can't see or even know they're there, start grabbing your legs. So the group is squished together with barely any room to move or breathe and everyone freaks out because your panic button goes off. At the end they give you a pin that says "I survived the "whatever it's called" haunted house" Trust me, it's worth the 5 bucks!

    I can't remember what the name of the hotel we stayed at was. I remember it was within walking distance of the casino. We were with a tour group, so it was included in the package.(*In my best Beavis voice-"She said package. Huh-huh, yeah yeah")/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Cool Beans!!! Thanks!!! Originally we were looking at Fallsview rooms, but now I think we may just go with Cityview and use the extra cash in the casinos or something else. It is almost twice the price of a cityview for a fallsview!

    /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Thanks again! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I was just thinking I might have a $25 chip from Niagra Casino. If I can find it maybe I'll mail it to you and you can slap that sucker down on lucky #13 on the roulette wheel! I'll split the winnings with you! (a 25 dollar bet straight on the #13 will pay 875 dollars!
