I am traveling to Niagara Falls, NY, for business next week. I will be there for four days. What shall I do with myself when I am not working?

I’m staying near the falls because it is convenient for work. I’ll have a car. I’ll be busy during standard business hours. I would really like recommendations for where to eat and how to spend my evenings.
More details: I’m normally a foodie, but understand there may not be very many options--suggestions for places with relatively healthy options that are not tourist traps would be very appreciated. I’d like to know about places that are convenient to downtown for when I just need food quickly, as well as places further afield for when I have more time off. I understand there are a number of Indian restaurants--any specific ones that are good? I love spicy food. What about laidback bars? Coffee shops? I will mainly be on my own.
Other than food, what about activities? I know about the Fashion Outlets. Are there decent movie theaters? Used bookstores? Independent boutiques? Museums with late hours? If I weren’t going in January, I would be interested in outdoorsy options. Anything I absolutely must see in that vein, even in the cold? If daylight is important, I may have some time before 10 am for that sort of thing.
I would prefer to stay on the NY side of the border, though I’m willing to drive to Canada once or twice. Also willing to head to Buffalo if that’s the only feasible option. Thanks!
