Hi, we are visiting Niagara Falls for a few hours on a Sunday in August. I understand it will be very busy at this time so I could do with some help with the planning.
2 We are hiring a car and driving from the airport to Niagara Falls. We have tickets booked for Maid of the Mist and are intending on heading there first. The recommended parking is at 1 Prospect Street. Given that by the time we arrive it will be a Sunday afternoon how difficult is parking likely to be at this location?
3 We have a voucher for Maid of the Mist that needs to be exchanged for a ticket. I'm presuming the boats are always full at this time of year so are we likely to encounter a long wait until our allocated boarding time?
4 One of our party wears hearing aids and is concerned about water/mist damaging the aids when on the boat. I understand ponchos are provided, how watertight are the hoods?
5 We would like to walk the Rainbow Bridge into Canada. Can we leave the car in Prospect Street all day until we're ready to drive back to the airport? How far is the walk from Prospect Street to Maid of the Mist and then from Maid of the Mist to the Rainbow Bridge? (One of our party also has slight mobility issues.)
5 Our return flight from Buffalo is at 8.50pm. What time should be plan on leaving Niagara?
Thanks in advance.
