Now that some of the travel restrictions between the United States and Canada have been loosened for individuals and families traveling with children since the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, you have been seeing quite a bit more Canadians driving around Western New York. Those Canadians, who are mostly from Ontario, have been doing more shopping in our malls and stores, visiting the sights of Western New York, and so much more and all of this is a great thing for the Buffalo economy.

Another great thing about these looser border cross rules means that more Americans are able to cross into Canada. I know that is great for people like me who have lots of friends in Ontario and I haven't actually seen them in person in more than 2 years. Let's just say that I cannot wait until I get to run through the six with my woes again.

So, if you do decide to visit our neighbors to the north, what is there to do? Well if you stop in Niagara Falls, Ontario, here are 5 things that you can do that will leave you feeling pretty good.
