There is just so much to do in the Ontario area. Bring your family and drop them off at the Falls—I mean, take the elevator to the bottom of the Falls for a Misty sail around the bottom of the falls. And, Niagara Falls is for lovers—so why not check out one of those heart-shaped beds, saunas, and be pampered for a second honey-moon? For the more financially savvy, there are casinos around the area and you can easily double or triple your beekeeping profits or losses.
