Buffalo Niagara International Airport
The easiest way to get to Niagara Falls, NY, is to first fly into Buffalo, NY and then take a taxi. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport provides a convenient way to reach the area by plane. AAA Taxi Tour offers a flat rate ($55) taxi service from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport to Niagara Falls, NY. What is now Buffalo Niagara International Airport was first created in 1926 when a group of aviation enthusiasts convinced City of Buffalo officials that an airport was an indispensable element for any city intent on industrial and commercial growth. Two hundred acres of Cheektowaga farmland were purchased in 1925 to build the Buffalo Municipal Airport, 318 acres in 1926, and an additional 20 acres in 1929, for a total land area of 538 acres. Today's Buffalo Niagara International Airport covers almost 1,000 acres.

After viewing Niagara Falls State Park we will walk to the Red Coach Inn at around 6:45pm. The Red Coach Inn overlooks Niagara's majestic Upper Rapids, just 500 yards from the brink of Niagara Falls - so close you can hear the roar! This Niagara Falls, NY hotel is the city's most distinctive historic structure, with its English Tudor exterior and warm English country ambiance. When The Red Coach Inn opened its doors for business on August 30, 1923, Niagara Falls had finally gained a hostelry befitting its rank as the honeymoon capital of the world. Situated near the center of town overlooking the spectacular Upper Rapids, the Inn was an imposing structure, three and one-half stories high, and built in the architectural style of the old English Tudor period. The owners, William Schoellkopf and Charles Peabody, spared no expense or effort in recreating the atmosphere and style of the Bell Inn in Finedon, England. History says the Old Bell "was granted a license during the reign of the Saxon King Harold and Queen Editha who often rested there when stag hunting." Above the fireplace in the Grill Room is a painting of General LaFayette's famous red carriage, for which the Inn is named, by Buffalo artist A. Rafael Beck. The scene depicts the greeting of LaFayette at the Eagle Tavern, which was located across the street in the early nineteenth century. Dinner will begin at 7:00pm.
