Niagara Falls/Toronto–Summertime wine down

posted in: Travel | 0

I love to travel and one of the places I’ve always wanted to go to is Niagara Falls and while I was there I figured why not go over to Toronto since I was at the Canadian border.

If someone plans on going to the Falls, I recommend getting one of the Niagara Parks Adventure Passes. These passes are good for the entire season and get you into most of the attractions for one price.  While there, I was able to walk along the rapids, journey behind the falls, and ride on the Hornblower cruise which was an unforgettable experience.

After all of the excitement at the falls; I continued on to Toronto. On the way up I drove through Niagara wine country and there were so many vineyards that a return trip is definitely necessary.

Once I got to Toronto I was very happy with what I saw and quickly parked the car so I could explore the city. The subway system is fantastic, and I was able to get anywhere I wanted to go with no trouble. Later, I had dinner at the famous CN Tower and it is something I definitely recommend to anyone visiting Toronto. The food was great, there was an enormous wine selection, and the views were simply breathtaking. The tower also had areas that you to walk on the glass and see the city below. Also, if you want to be really adventurous, you can even sign up to walk around the edge of the top of the tower and lean over the city below.

I have a thing for hotels, where I like the best of the best at a fairly reasonable price situated in the heart of the city where everything is within reach. The service was top notch and the property was amazing as well.
