Any Indian sites or museums?

by IndigenousAlly

We are interested in indigenous art and history. Are there places near Niagara Falls that deal with the local Indian nations? Thanks for your insights.

Re: Any Indian sites or museums?

No there is nothing worth going to for this sort in Niagra Falls. If there is it will be very expensive. Niagra Falls is a large tourist trap outside of the Falls there is not much there. If you want the full experience of what a native village was like there are several places you can go too. The biggest to my mind in Ontario is in Midland. Mount St. Marie amoung the huron where the Iriquois battle the Huron indians and the missionaries who lived there. I have been to a reserve which is where native people where designated to live when the country was settled and they are still there as it is there land for lack of way to describe it and the best I saw is in Peterborough. The place I think was called curved lake and the art was great and was from alot of different tribes. I am unsure of what tribe you like but it is totally different from tribe to tribe.

Re: Any Indian sites or museums?

Here are some historical sites in and around the region (pdf file ~ 10 pages)with a few references to native peoples. I would therefore conclude that the displays at the museums would include native history. The native people of the area were Iroquois.

I'm still looking for native-specific sites but here's another page on Niagara history with Parks Canada:

Try contacting Niagara Parks for specific Iroquoian site information:

AHA....I'm getting warmer:

http://www.stcatharines.ca/tourism/heritage_history.asp
(St. Catharines is approx. 20 min. drive from Niagara Falls)

Of course, the Royal Ontario Museum on Queens Park Avenue in Toronto will have the most comprehensive native art and historical artifacts.

Hope this helps your search.

Travel Tips for Niagara Falls

The Best and Wettest Way to Experience the Falls!

by chrissyalex

Take a ride on the Maid Of the Mist! This tourist attraction has been around for years! This boat which takes you right up to the falls leaves every 30 minutes from either the Canadian side or the American side. They will give you a disposable blue raincoat,but it really does't help much at all! You will get wet no matter what....but this is all part of the fun!
Admission is $10.50 US.Times of operation vary as to the time of year. The boats do not run in the winter.
It leaves from Queen Victoria Park on the Canadian side and Prospect Point park onthe American side.
Telephone 905-358-5781 Getting soaked! Everytime! Stand towards the front of the boat and you will really get the brunt of it! :-)

TRIPOD and TELELENS

by OlenaKyiv

If you want to get great shots, you need a tripod, so you won't be so silly as me who was too lazy to one on my walk to Falls and took all pictures leaning on hand-rails. Unfortunately, tele lens was not in my photo kit yet :-(((

Falls Illumination

by TropicGirl77 about At the Falls, from any view

Each night of the year, the Falls are Illuminated with pastel lights ... on a clear night this is a truly awesome experience to view! Times throughout the year vary, so check the website for accurate time scheduling. Just shortly after sunset is a pretty good time to show up .. the closer to the falls is not necessarily the best view ... but at least get close enough to feel the mist! While this may not thrill everyone, and many are more interested in the nearby casinos, but allow yourself to be "wow'ed" by this beauty as seen in just another "light" (just a little humor there) As you are ... nothing special unless you wear glasses, they I suggest bringing a cloth to wipe off any mist.

Food With a View!

by NC_Ziggy about Table Rock Restaurant

Ok, this is easy! The greatest experience to be had from this well-appointed restaurant, sitting above the breathtaking Niagara Falls, next to solid glass, looking out upon the cascading Falls and the people drinking in the view, was that the food was very good! :-) Though very hungry as it was well into the afternoon, I tried to use some discretion, knowing that some VT feasts awaited me at the end of the week!

The Table Rock Restaurant was clean, the service was good, and I imagine would be a lovely place for a romantic dinner while The Falls are illuminated at night. I must try that the next time I'm here, and I DO hope there will be a next time! The prices are a bit much but the food was good and who could complain because of the view? Not me! After all, it's only money! I can't describe and do not have a menu to share with you, but I can say that the food was very good! Min had an appetizer of Smoked Salmon while I had a Greek Salad and a bowl of Clam Chowder. She enjoyed her food, and I certainly enjoyed mine! The combination of my selections were a perfect mix for hot & cold, sweet & sour in the proper perspectives! The salad was fresh, crisp, cold, and big! The mixture of fresh lettuce & greeneries, cucumbers, onions, olives, feta cheese, and dressing awakened my senses! The warm richness of the clam chowder was a terrific balance without being too heavy or filling! I made good choices this day and really enjoyed the food and the ambiance!

Eat right next to animals(okay so they're fake)!

by Kristin050900 about Rainforest Cafe

This is a really cool restaurant if you have children, there is just so much going on that will keep them occupied. The food is pretty good too. We always start off with Rain Forest Pita Quesadillas. We always start off with Rain Forest Pita Quesadillas. They're loaded with chickens, peppers, onions, and cheese. For the main course I like the Big Islander Caesar Salad.
