jacket with a hood. This will especially be useful as
you venture near the falls where it can get damp and cold.

that their stroller is light weight and foldable. Although
the trails around Niagara Falls are wide, a lightweight
stroller will make it easier to navigate the falls. Be
sure to wear running or hiking shoes and comfortable,
lightweight clothing. Finally, bring your cameras and
camcorders on your Niagara Tours. Niagara Falls New
