📍 Niagara Falls, Canada
School has been hectic lately and Toronto’s first snowfall happened yesterday!!
So this is a throwback when I went on a mini-trip down to Niagara Falls during the Fall season. In Canada, when the seasons are transitioning the temperature/seasons fluctuate a lot…
But here we go:
The drive from Toronto to Niagara Falls I’d say is about 2 hours, not including heavy traffic. I think there was once where it took 3 hours to get there because of traffic… horrid.
Anyways, we found a parking spot in Clifton Hill and this was one of the first things we saw when we were on route to go see the Falls. This leads to the middle of Clifton Hill.
Clifton Hill is a place within Niagara Falls where all the fun touristy activities are! Like the ferris wheel, wax museum, glow-in-the-dark golf course, haunted house (could be just during Halloween season.. ), Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum along with several restaurants, fast food places and hotels around it as well.
They do have a tourist booth where you buy these fun passes and you get to do 5 things for the price of 1! Well, I bought the at a booth before, but you can buy it online as well!

And here we are at the Falls!
This view of the Falls at this side isn’t as pretty as the one further down on the right side of the photo above, hahaha. It was hard to snap a shot there because you can feel the drizzle of the Falls and that area is wet, even on the ground. So unfortunately, my glasses got wet… #GlassesProblems
As many times as I’ve been to the Falls, it is still a beautiful sight every single time. The day that we went was a really good day too – compared to the weather we were receiving for that week, it was a good 18 degrees that day.
We decided to walk from one end of Niagara Falls to other end for the most part. It was a leisurely walk and it felt good to take a nice walk to see the scenery, bask in the sun, and soak in a mini technology detox. I had a really hectic school week before this.. So it felt nice and relaxing.
As it was a week day, it wasn’t busy at all, but there were a lot of tourist busses that had big groups of tourists that came to see the Falls..
At Niagara Falls, you can also buy tickets to see the Falls up-close on a boat and they provide ponchos to cover you up from the water. Not sure how effective that is, since I’ve never taken that tour before. You can see the boats when you’re viewing the Falls as well.
To be honest, we didn’t do much in Niagara Falls besides seeing the Falls and eating (which will be in a follow-up post) heehee. I have been to Niagara Falls several times and they have quite a few other attractions here besides Clifton Hill, like the flower clock and a butterfly conservatory.
On my final note, the Canadian side of the Falls is better than the American side, so come to our side to experience this all natural wonder! Hahaha
Till next time, ♥
