I am coming to canada my first time from Denver, Colorado. I coming mainly to visit the hockey hall of fame but staying the week Jun 29 to July 5.

Any unique non touristy places to hit up.

I think on July 1st my mom and I are going on our own made up Brewery tour and tasting the beers here. July 4 we are going down to Niagara falls to catch the fireworks show. Other than that nothing really planned.
