We are having our 1st trip to Canada on 3rd Sept this year for 2 weeks. The trip is to combine some sightseeing with a visit to our daughter, who moved to Peterborough in Jan to work at Trent Uni.As we are flying into Hamilton directly from Ireland, we are heading to NOTL for 3 nights. We will have hire car for the 2 weeks.Booked '627 on King',thanks to its rave reviews on Trip Advisor! We will do all usual tourist trips around Niagara from here.Then head to Toronto for 4 nights, booked into Radisson Admiral Harbourfront,as we prefer to be near water, rather than in town! We will be there for end of CNE and will have front row view of the Air Show over lake! We have booked to see Jersy Boys on the Wed too.Rest of time we plan to do Island trip, visit Ireland park, CN etc etc. So our 1st week is pretty much planned, but then we head to P/Boro for 2nd week. we really want to stay near our daughter, but still see more around Lake Ontario. So, is it possible to visit area on St Lawrence on day trips? e.g. Kingston 1000 island trip, Fort Henry, Upper Canada Village, Cornwall etc? My husband loves driving so has no problem heading out for 3hr drives to places!We will be able to visit Oshawa, Port Hope, Cobourg, and Belleville from P/Boro ok, but just wanted opinion on those further afield. Also,are there any other interesting visits from P/B? We do plan on spending at least 1 day exploring around Kawartha lakes. Any advise would be welcome in relation to this area!
Super 8 and Ontanabee Best Western, are the only 2 hotels who have vacancies for full week of our stay,anyone stayed in either? Which would you recommend? Any negatives? We only need a room as base to sleep in as will be out all day every day!But would like it to be clean, with good beds and ensuite bathroom!
