Day 3: A Taste of History
Go back in time at the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, where you can explore one of the last remaining facilities in the country that produced wooden carousels. The complex of seven buildings is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Explore antique carousels and the machinery that made them run, along with an outdoor playland for younger kids that uses the small amusement park rides the company produced in the 1950s. At Old Fort Niagara, little history buffs can go back in time and explore an 18th century castle, and witness artillery demonstrations and live reenactments. Keep the history theme going with a trip to Hibbard’s Frozen Custard, operating since 1939! Choose from flavors that rotate daily, or get the signature Black Raspberry.
Day 4: An Electrifying Adventure
You’ve got a big day ahead of you so fuel up at Marketside Restaurant, a family-style place specializing in all things breakfast. Next, set sail on the iconic Maid of the Mist boat tour at Niagara Falls State Park. Cruise into the heart of the Horseshoe Falls on the all-new, fully electric, and emission-free vessels. After, hop on the complimentary Discover Niagara Shuttle (seasonal) and hop off at the Niagara Power Vista. Here, visitors can operate a power grid during a storm, or experience a high-tech virtual ride through the landscapes of New York State.
