I'm planning to visit Niagara Falls next April, 2018. My plan is to fly to NYC from Chicago, most likely stay in NYC for about 3 days (fri sat and sun) then Monday morning (maybe sunday night) fly from NYC to Buffalo and stay there Monday and fly back to Chicago Tuesday evening. I would like to know the following details:
What is the name of the airport in Buffalo near Niagara Falls?
What is the best but also affortable boat tour for Niagara Falls (USA side) and will they be open in April?
Note: I'm trying to stay in the USA side of the falls because the person I'm going with only has a USA tourist visa and i believe (correct me if I'm wrong) she can not cross to the Canadian side? )
Are the Niagara Falls tours open all year around? The reason I'm asking this is because I've seen multiple posts of people talking about on/off seasons of Niagara Falls !? Does that mean there are no tours on off-season if so, what are the dates the tours re-open?
What type of weather should i be expecting on beginnings of April?
Any hotels in Buffalo from where we can have a view of the Falls?
