Sorry - I got through this and did not realize you can't specify a starting point, then show that you travel through another country.

I added one day because you will want to make lots of stops along this route. I did over 4 hours of sightseeing in one location.

Getting into the country (and out later on) can be a drag with the banter you must do back and forth with the border patrols. The guy I dealt with while on my bike by myself asked "Are you travelling alone?" I was going to say "Well, I don't have a room for anything except an infant in the trunk bag, would you like me to open it?" However, I am pretty sure I'd be detained since they have a lack of humor. So I just looked behind me, looked at the agent and said, "Uh... no sir."

Alright, the route I took that morning was going over the "Peace Bridge" and heading back north on a road called "Niagara Parkway" and it is an absolute must-ride road before the winter comes in. I stopped several times about 1 mile short of the great Niagara Falls to take some pictures, then I continued up to the Botanical Gardens, the Floral Clock and hit a little town called Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Then on my way back down the same way I came, first stopping at a winery. As I hit the Niagara Falls area again, I parked in a lot which can only be named "Niagara Supervised Parking." The cost was $7CAN for 8 hours - that beats the meters on the Niagara Parkway for $5CAN for 30 minutes! You'd make a right on Victoria Avenue where Clifton Hill becomes Centre Street. You're on the correct side of Victoria Avenue if you see the Upside-Down House (it's an attraction) to your right side and Louis Tassaude's Wax Museum on your left. The parking facility next to an Applebee's restaurant (also on the left whose address is 5657 Victoria Avenue, Niagara Falls, ON, Canada).

After another 4 hours of sight-seeing, waterfall admiring, people watching and a little amount of shopping, it was time to head back and low on gas, I decided to head to the Highway back over the Peace Bridge where I came from. The roads are 420 and the QEW, respectively from where I started from that parking facility... all mapped here.

Go to places that take credit and debit cards... don;t pay to get cash-currency - it won't be worth it in the end.
