Jun 22, 2017 - Definitely had us an Adventure!

WE'RE HERE ... OUR GOAL DESTINATION!! Soooo our day began with excitement .. we started out early having decided to take the advice of many and travel to the Canadian side rather than the American side of the falls via the Peace Bridge. It really wasn't a bad drive and the sections that ran along Lake Erie were actually very scenic. Coming into Buffalo we were surprised at all the industry .. not clean industry either. Looking to one side (I guess the West) driving over the Peace Bridge was Lake Erie and windmills, very pretty. Looking to...

Jun 21, 2017 - Feel the Mist

Niagara Falls, ON Niagara Falls, Ontario, is a Canadian city at the famous waterfalls of the same name, linked with the U.S. by the Rainbow Bridge. The Falls were our goal for the day. First we had to pass through the gauntlet of other attractions trying to distract us: Clifton Hill Skywheel, Dinosaur Adventure Golf, House of Frankenstein, Guinness World Records Museum to name a few. Our hotel is well located so that we were able to easily walk to the parks and falls. Parking is terribly expensive. From largest to smallest, the 3 waterfalls...

Jun 20, 2017 - There's always room for Jello

Niagara Falls, ON In 1897, Pearle Wait, a carpenter in LeRoy, was putting up a cough remedy and laxative tea in his home. He experimented with gelatine and came up with a fruit flavored dessert which his wife, May, named Jell-O. He tried to market his product but he lacked the capital and the experience. He sold the trademark for $450. The Jell-O brand was purchased by numerous companies during the course of the last century. The final sale for $66 million was to Kraft. We accumulated numerous facts about Jell-O: during WWII Jell-O was...

Jan 10, 2017 - Niagara Falls

Light snow was falling first thing and we headed back to the casino at 9am as they also offered a reduced price breakfast to members, which we are. Even that early in the day a sprinkling of people were there playing on the slot machines, really sad. After breakfast we went back to the hotel, packed our suitcases & checked out at 12.30. Our train taking us on to Chicago wasn't due until midnight from the train station in Buffalo about twenty miles away across the border in the USA. The hotel let us leave the cases in their store so we...

Jan 9, 2017 - Off To Niagara Falls

Second Leg – New York to Niagara Falls, Canada Up at 5am to catch the 7.15am train to Niagara Falls. The Niagara river acts as the border between the USA & Canada so the city of Niagara Falls itself has an American side & a Canadian side. The best views of the Falls themselves are considered to be on the Canadian side so we will be getting off at the Canadian Amtrak station & staying for one night in Canada. The train stops at the station just over the border to clear immigration & customs before travelling on to Toronto. Still bitterly...

Sep 26, 2016 - Waterfalls

Today we went to Niagara Falls. We went over to Canada and the view was much better. Canada was definitely a lot less tacky too. It was a strange way of passing through a country- we had to pay 50 cents each and got asked questions by a customs officer. We saw black squirrels and a marmot. The Leckworth State Park was pretty and the Autumn colours were starting. See everyone soon. Love Theo.

Our Year Out

Aug 13, 2016 - A Tourist in Niagara Falls

We then took a drive along a road towards Niagara on the lake, and through some vineyards. Stopped and bought some fresh fruit and veggies and enjoyed...

Jun 18, 2016 - Off we go again!!

Our final week in Niagara has been filled with packing, packing and more packing. Will I ever get it right? I strongly doubt it, but I am only bringing 4 bottoms!!! LOL. We have also done a lot of eating, visiting, and again, more packing. Tomorrow we fly out to Los Angeles, which I haven't done a lot of research on, but will definitely relax by the pool for a while, before we venture out too far.. Plans for our trip to Briitish Columbia, have been finalized, flights booked, car rented, cottage and BNB rented. So we can just enjoy our sit,...

Forever Travels

Jun 16, 2016 - Fluttering White water

We jumped on the Go-buss again and went to town. We transferred over to the other loop and went to see the Butterflies. This visit has been one of those bucket list things of interest. Very tranquil and calming. Some visitors were quite intimidated but the Fluttering Butterflies. There was one bright blue one, he was too fast to get a picture. We wandered around outside and saw the gardens the university School of Horticulture students maintaining. Then Pat found a pleasant surprise, she found Bambi, all curled up in a hedge, the mother...

Jun 15, 2016 - Jaw dropping Beauty in Niagara Falls

The Falls were amazing as usual. I never get tired of watching that water just keep on coming. No wonder it is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. We did a lot of walking today so I soaked my feet and scrubbed my heels with a nice piece of lava rock we picked up on the shores of Lake Superiors. Had a great lunch at Coco's downtown. We went into Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville but they were only open to sell merchandise and not food till 12:00. Too Bad. Went to two Casinos and then to the falls again. Walked the whole length from the...

Jun 15, 2016 - Life Long Visit to Niagara Falls

This is our very first trip to Niagara Falls or tor that matter to Ontario. We have both wanted to see this since our early years in school. This is one of the wonders of the world, or at least my world. We went online to Niagara Parks and bought a ticket package and printed them out. We got on the GO train and went to the Travel centre to book our tours and get the Go train passes.. We first went to the movie presentation, this was so educational, it is a must see. This theatre was like a Omnimax. We had ponchos on, because your in the...
