On Memorial Day weekend I visited both Toronto and the Niagara Region in Canada .... about an 8 hour drive from NYC or under a one hour flight !
Where do I start ?
Did you know that you get almost 30 cents for each dollar you spend in Canada. Our USD is really strong right now and the prices were amazing.
Did you know that Toronto is the 4th largest city in North America (after NYC, LA and Chicago) ?
This is an amazing city that sits right on Lake Ontario. The CN Tower is the tallest structure in the city. You can see it from just about every street in the downtown core.
They have a China Town, a gorgeous waterfront and a bunch of Islands called the Toronto Islands. We took a ferry boat ride over to these Islands and enjoyed an amazing experience.
We went up the CN Tower and we could see Niagara Falls way across Lake Ontario. It was pretty spectacular
At night .... the Tower is lit up and the city lights make this city magical.
We loved the fact that you could take the metro or just walk. Toronto is incredibly clean and very safe.
The nightlife is amazing on King Street West and we enjoyed staying close to everything.
We travelled by a rental car to the Niagara Region which is about 1 1/2 hours from Toronto.
What a spectacular sight ! Everything you ever imagined about seeing Niagara Falls for the first time.
We drove down the river about twenty minutes along the most awesome scenic ride past wineries, the Niagara River gorge, historical battlegrounds, scenic gardens and multi million dollar homes. As we drove down the river we reminded ourselves that on the side we could see America. It's pretty cool !
Once we arrived in Niagara on the Lake we were completely in love.
What a stunningly gorgeous town. It's actually called the prettiest town in Canada.
The views, the flowers and the quaintness made us feel we were in Disney World. It almost did not seem real.
We did an Arbnb and I promised the hosts that I would include a blog on their beautiful region.
Here's just a few reasons to see the Niagara Region:
So ..... where are you going this summer ?
