Shopping and kids activities across the border

hello Canadian desi group,

I am looking for suggestions for a cross border shopping trip, with some activities for kids nearby, such as water parks or amusement parks.

within 3 - 4 hrs. drive at the most, so New York, Pennsylvania, maybe Ohio but no more than 4 hrs. drive.

I have been to Buffalo for shopping but there is no amusement nearby.

I have heard of Grove City, but is there anything else to do around there?

thanks in advance.

Good place to visit - water park splash lagoon.

Nice indoor water park - it is bigger than falls view water park. We had been there for two times and really enjoyed our stayed at Splash Lagoon. By the tickets from Piece bridge duty free shop. it will be cheaper then buying from Splash lagoon website.

Last long weekend, I was at Darian lake, one day trip is enough for Darian lake. It is mini version of Wonderland.

Wag Jag is offering ($15 CAD) entry for one day at Darian Lake.

all the best...

Shopping is not worth it any more in US, due low exchange rate of CAD dollar.

Plus due to NAFTA war, which has started the low level low class racist CBSA border guards are very strict about HST, Customs duties, taxes etc.

Even if you have a duty free limit, the racist CBSA morons love to harass non white Canadian shoppers, when they come back to the border.

thanks everyone for the suggestions.
