Return to Niagara…17 years later.

One of the first intercontinental family holidays all those years ago was a week long trip to Toronto (using accumulated air miles etc) and a day trip to Niagara Falls complete with Maid of the Mist boat trip (the last boat on the last day of the season that year…so we only just made it).

So on my nth trip to Canada since then took in a full day in Niagara Falls, the wineries of Niagara on the Lake and some spectacular views all round…so enjoy!

Upstream from the Falls
And as you approach the Falls, there’s no inkling of the drop or spectacle to follow

And this time…the walk behind the water!

Horn blowers…the Canadain boats (can take up to 700 at a time); the US boats are a lot smaller
All the ponchos are recycled- saving the planet

The American side…and the actual Niagara Falls; the famous ones are the Horseshoe Falls!

The gardens are equally spectacular

Dainty…Niagara on the Lake
Lake Ontario…and you can just see Toronto on the other side, some 60 miles away but you have to drive round the side of the Lake!

If you only make one visit to Canada, make it here. Add it to your bucket list!
