There are lots of interesting things to see at Fort Niagara (Fort Niagara website).
To begin or finish the tour, the Niagara Lighthouse located on the edge of the parking lot provides another bit of interest.
As we headed back to the bridge to Canada, we stopped in Jamestown for a few moments as cannons could be heard from across the river in Fort George. The last battle between the two forts occurred about 200 years ago so, as the bicentennial approaches, I’m happy to have been able to visit the forts on both sides of the river before the heavy duty celebrating begins in 2012.
