Drive around Niagara Falls
Road tripping to Niagara Falls is a tradition for some families.But,once you arrive you'll want to ditch your car ASAP.Traffic can be slow,and the roads are either packed with tour buses in the summer or covered in snow in the winter.Parking outside of your hotel lot is also difficult and expensive.Though you'll find a handful of free parking areas in the north and south end of Niagara Parks,most lots closest to the attractions are gated or metered.You can find a list of available lots and daily parking prices on the Globerouter.com website.
