Niagara is a constant photo-op.

There are so many things to enjoy and I am constantly clicking away.

Lose yourself in our gallery of pictures, and then some more pictures.

With a quick visit to the Beer or Liquor store (yes they are sold separately, although you can buy 6 packs of beer at the Liquor store), you can relax at your accommodations after a hard days sightseeing, if you so choose.

There are convenience stores throughout town and even a 24 hour Pharmacy in case of a late night emergency.

This is a wonderful area to rent a bike and just go for a ride along the Niagara River Parkway as you follow the river either above or below the falls.

With public transportation it is easy to get around town and, of course, there is the People Movers buses that cover the places that you don't want to miss.
