Here in Ontario summer lasts a few short months before we transition into blustery fall. I make the most of the season by jam packing my schedule with fun activities and spending a lot of time outdoors. One of my favorite places in Ontario is Niagara Falls; not only is it the honeymoon capital of the world and home to one of the most spectacular natural wonders but it is also a great tourist destination for people of all ages!
Just an hour drive from home, my family and I regularly head down to Niagara on the Lake to picnic by the powerful Niagara escarpment. The escarpment is a heavy flow of water surrounded by rocky cliffs and greenery that flows towards the falls. Iv'e even been white water jet boating over these strong currents and it was exhilarating!
This region is also where we produce wine and the tours take you through vineyards where you can sample the province's deliciously sweet Ice Wine! The quaint little town of Niagara on the Lake is packed with restaurants, parks and cafes and don’t be surprised to see a horse and carriage pass by!
To appreciate Niagara Falls you should see it in person, photos cannot do it justice!
Sometimes the water gives off so much mist that it rises in the air like a cloud and when the wind shifts the water falls like rain and drenches you!
Although I have traveled to some of the most beautiful cities in the world the majesty of the falls with its amazing force never ceases to amaze me. I have been to Niagara too many times to count but I never tire of visiting!
Clifton Hill is our mini version of Las Vegas and at night it lights up and comes alive. There are many restaurants, hotels, a great casino as well as arcades, rides, bars, patios, nightclubs, sweet shops, water parks, shopping malls, souvenir shops and more!

My family and I took a trip to Niagara Falls when I was in 8th grade and I loved the Maid of the Mist and Ripley's Believe it or Not museum. I've been back a couple of times since, but it was mostly for a pit stop with a friend who hadn't seen the falls yet. It would be nice to go back and do some wine tasting!ReplyDelete
Wow such beautiful photos! I can't wait to visit there one day!!!ReplyDelete
I would love to visit the falls again, the last time I went was 11 years ago! Thought of going this summer, would be nice as a weekend trip! :)ReplyDelete
