We are going to Toronto in October 2018 and will be staying a few days in Niagara Falls. We would like to take a day trip to Niagara Fall, NY to shop and dine in the area. Aside from the Fashion Outlets at Niagara Fall, the main places we wanted to go to are Kohl's, Trader Joe's and Olive Garden. I found all three in Amherst. Is this area easy to get to from Niagara Falls, NY? If so, it is safe for tourists to travel in this area? Are there areas nearby to avoid? Thank you!
