    Just not enough info

    I'm a big fan of Fodor's, have used their guides for years to get me around places of interest. My B&N only had this Fodor's edition that covered ALL of Canada - I was looking for a guide to provide info on Niagara Falls specifically, and the surrounding area. Fodor's devoted a whole 19 pages (out of over 850 pages) to Niagara Falls & Niagara-On-The-Lake ... wow - Not. There are many places to eat in this area yet Fodor's just did not provide enough information to help me make a wise decision - they listed only 13 restaurants in total, and most were high-end. Luckily, I had my AAA book as back up. We did find a couple of sightseeing tidbits in the book, but it was not worth the $22.95. Perhaps Fodor's should break Canada down into regional guides in order to fit more information between the covers.
