Our June Day trip was actually a week. We started off picking up my husbands Mom in Toronto and then spending a night at Niagara Falls, Ontario. Then off to Pennsylvania to spend a few days with my Mom and then we were all off to Atlantic City for a few days of gambling. On the way back from NJ, we stopped off for an overnight trip to Wilmington, Delaware to do some tax free shopping and visit old friends. Then it was back to the Pocono mountains of PA with a stop along the way in Chadds Ford to the Brandywine River Museum (Wyeth family exhibits) and lunch at the Chadds Ford Inn. Below you will find links and reviews of the many stops on this adventure:-) Each place we visited will be rated by ***** with 5 stars being highly recommended! and * star being not recommended. These are just our opinions:-)

Stops Along the Way

Casino Niagara
***** We got a great hotel deal through the casino w/ free breakfast and $10 each Casino tokens. (for 2 people)
Niagara Bestwestern Fireside Inn-Every room has a fireplace
**** Not withing walking distance but a very clean Hotel with a great indoor pool!! Dining room was closed for dinner:-( $5 to get shuttle to Casino. Hotel overlooks the Niagara River
Showboat Casino - Atlantic City, NJ
**** Last Casino on the Boardwalk, but the Jitneys came in handy! *****Ocean view rooms, Outdoor Pool. But the Mom's stayed there for free thanks to the comps from the frequent players card. Not bad?
Comfort Inn - Kentucky Ave. Atlantic City, NJ
***** Just steps from the boardwalk and Casinos, A great deal if you don't have a free night in the Casino. Very Friendly and Excellent Service. JACUZZIS in every room! My husband and I stayed here.
Trump Plaza - Atlantic City, NJ
***** My favorite. Get a Trump Players card and then get your comps for meal credits. The New Yorker is an excellent 24 hour restaurant. Also Harveys Deli is great for sandwiches and steaks, etc
Trump Marina - Just a jitney ride away from the boardwalk
****The Marina casinos are a little less crowded, but I don't recommend HOOTERS * Great Wings, but the music was unbearable!! And by all means DO NOT order a gourmet hotdog, unless you like Hard buns.
Ocean One Mall Atlantic City, NJ
*****Our favorite place to visit. A mall which is a multi-level pier which is made to look like a giant ship. Restaurants, shops, food court, arcades, and a great lookout!!
Best Western Brandywine Valley Inn - Wilmington, DE
**** A convenient location, and great package plans! Nice outdoor pool. We ended up with a 2 room suite for only $110 a night.
Brandywine River Museum - Chadds Ford, PA
*****A collection of 3 generations of Wyeths. Its always one of my favorite stops!!
Chadds Ford Inn
*For atmosphere only. The food used to be excellent here. In the heart of mushroom country I expected to see some mushrooms in my soup. Between 4 of us,, not one of us enjoyed the food!
Hickory Run State Park - Pennsylvania
*****Always my favorite state park. Boulder field is a must see. Great Camping, Hiking, Fishing and Swimming!!

Niagara Falls Links - Ontario

Howard Johnsons - Victoria Avenue
I think I'll try this place out sometime. Indoor Pool, Outdoor pool and Jacuzzi Suites!
Niagara Parks
Check out all the activities going on at the Niagara Parks.
Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview
Its a Beautiful Hotel, but a little pricey for me, but with the exchange rates it might not be a bad deal for Americans!
Sheraton Fallsview
I love the Falls Cam on this page. Its neat to check it out in the Winter.
