Niagara Falls sort of speaks for itself…you can be the judge from the unedited photos below!  The collective Niagara Falls, made up of American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls can be seen from helicopter or boat, but we thought the views from land were also pretty spectacular.  It was worth sitting in the long line of cars at the border (both ways) to drive into Ontario (our 3rd Canadian province visited in this “trip through the states”) to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake on the Canadian side.  Though you will pass a Botanical Gardens along the way, you may actually find Niagara-on-the-Lake a botanical wonder of its own.  The vineyards passed along the way are so beautiful that we decided it’s worth a trip back one day to really stop and enjoy the Wineries of Niagara, known for their ice wines, while staying at the Prince of Wales Hotel with their beautiful flowers.

  1. My Canadian grandparents took me to Niagara Falls when I was a child. Totally fascinated and scared all at the same time. Bill and I took the girls when they were kids and I was just as thrilled the second time around. It’s amazing to see that much water flowing.
