Why you should plan a family trip to the Niagara Falls

We have lots of long-distance family and friends who come to visit us. They usually fly into Toronto and our first stop when showing them around is Niagara Falls, as it is only 1 ½ hours away and has so much to offer.

Having visited countless times with many different children, we wanted to share the family friendly attractions that are a hit with all of our visitors!
