This was our first time to the Niagara Falls area. We actually stayed at Dressel’s Jordan Valley Campground outside of the Village of Jordan Valley, which is about 30 minutes from the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario. I cannot say enough about this amazing campground! The owners were friendly and welcoming, the campground clean and secluded, and the location convenient for traveling to other attractions in the area. We like staying outside of the cities in more secluded areas, and then drive a short distance to ‘be a tourist’.
We visited Fort George, which is near the city of Niagara-on-the-Lake, and learned a lot about the War of 1812 (a topic not covered in any detail in my high school social studies curriculum).
Of course, we also visited the Falls, and were amazed.
We also took a tour of the historic Village of Jordan, grabbed a pizza at Jordan Pizza, and just spent some time in our quiet campground around the campfire.
