@Jd64848704: SO UP MY ALLY! Okay… things to do:

-there are a ton of “passes” you can buy for the falls. They are all about $40 and will get you into 4-8 different attractions, depending what you enjoy. If you go to their tourism website you can see whats available. My Fiance and bought a great pass at the ferris wheel thing that shows you the falls and for $40 we also got into several other attractions that were great!

-totally recommend going to see the Magic Show just north of the falls. It is amazing and the drinks are good too! http://www.gregfrewintheatre.com/

-as for dinner, you aren’t going to fnd a “cheap” restaurant in Niagara Falls. They are the capital of “romantic” in Ontario and even McDonald’s charges premium prices for their burgers! (I nearly died of shock last year paying $12 for a chicken burger combo).

-I think you also need to think about what your guests enjoy– do they want to shop? are there kids? gambling? drinking? All of those things are easily accessible.

For restaurant suggestions, I suggest checking out the local Chowhound board.

Here is just one recent entry. You can search for Niagara Falls on the Ontario board.

I don’t have much to add to the previous comments. I think your guests should be able to just wander around Niagara Falls and find things to do, even in April! There is also an indoor water park at one of the hotels that would be fun for the kids. 

As for distributing the goodie bags – How many bags & how many hotels? If you are driving across the border I would drop off the bags at the hotels Stateside first, then take care of the ones in Canada. Most of the hotels are really close to each other. 

I can’t really comment on the food but $16 for a hamburger with fries is normal to me. If you were looking at a reception in Niagara Falls it would be hard to find it under $100pp.

@Jd64848704: Glad I could help! I go often, but went last year to celebrate Valentine’s Day/anniversary/FI’s birthday around Feb 22nd or so. It was expensive and overpriced, no matter where you went for food!

If you are going with children, there is the Lego museum on the main strip they will love, along with Dave & Busters (arcade thing). The lego museum you can actually build and it will keep kids entertained for a long time! There are a few casinos in the bottoms of hotels for adults, and there are a ton of clubs if there is interest in drinking or watching a great band.

No matter what you do or where you go, you will have fun! Send guests down the main strip and maybe give them a few pamphlets with the local attractions. I could probably spend 2-3 days doing things on the strip, so I’m sure your guests will have fun.

@Jd64848704:  Negotiate! Negotiate! Negotiate! The hospitality industry is suffering and your date is not in prime tourist season.

The big ferris wheel is kind of nice. It’s really touristy, the attractions are all fairly carnival-esque.
