Details

I am gonna take a shot in the dark about this one, if anyone is interested.

I was thinking about doing this in the spring (maybe late April/beginning May). I found a great deal from groupon for the Four Points Sheraton Niagra Falls, NY (U.S. side), it gives a bottle of wine, appetizer and a $30 casino voucher per night. A Sun-Wed check-in is $69 per night, a Th-Sat check-in is $89 per night, either way both are a great deal. We would need to drink the wine and eat appetizer at the restaurant.
You can either get a king bed or two queen beds in a room. You would have to book thru the hotel for dates but purchase via groupon. I love groupon I always purchase through them.

You would need to bring your PASSPORT (required) if you want to do things on the Canada side. There is a park with a 35 mile trail (56 km) and can bike it, it's a paved trail in the park (Niagara River Recreation Trail). http://www.niagaraparks.com/nature-trails/niagara-river-recreation-trail.html

It's a 6.5 - 7 hour car drive more or less, or you could plane it to the Buffalo/Niagra International Airport. If you drive you could cart your own bike or we can find a place to rent bikes.

There are blackout dates to the hotel, which are:
•Not valid 1/17-1/20, 1/25-1/28, 2/15-2/18, 3/1-3/3, 3/14-17, 4/25-4/28
•Must book by 2/24/13 or promo value expires
•Valid for travel 1/1/13-5/4/13

***If you know about groupon it only gives you a certain amount of time to buy the deal...so right now it is 5 days left. AND 300 unknown ppl have already bought this deal.***

What do you think? If people get the two queens we can share and split the cost. We would just have to arrange days. I am thinking at least 3 nights if not 4. Write all your thoughts on this.
