Niagara Falls

My Hubs and I went to Niagara Falls (Canada side) a few years ago as part of our Canadian honeymoon. I had Friday and Saturday off, so we decided to take a quick trip up there again. And it was wonderful!

The weather was nice & crisp! The leaves were changing. We used Marriott reward points to get a hotel room and upgraded to a falls view! The food was good and felt nice to just get away. Has anyone else ever been there?
View from our hotel room.

After checking in, we walked down to the falls area and wow, it was packed! After fighting through the crowd (not really), I finally got next to the railing to take a photo or two...




Around this time, Louis and I were hungry for dinner and we happened upon a restaurant overlooking the falls. Elements on the Falls was pretty good but I am sure I paid for the view.
Isn't that awesome?

Our next stop was the casino! I love slot machines... they are just fun. Then we headed back to the hotel to enjoy the falls lit up for the evening. So pretty!

The next day were enjoyed some of the touristy attraction over at Clifton Hills including Dave & Busters, gift shops, and people watching. Then it was time to head home.

On the way home... what did we see? The Wayne Gretzky Winery? Whatttt??? We stopped by and unfortunately, didn't see Mr. Gretzky but did taste his delicious wine and bought 3 bottles! Hey, it isn't available in the U.S. 

I am home now and super tired. Zzzzzzz. Night!

Jerk Face and I went up 3 years ago.. we camped.. and I think we ate at the same restaurant... Luckily, I won about $100 gambling to pay for dinner! :)

Wayne Gretzky wine?! I think it's time I head up to Canada again! :)

Love it! I already want to go back. :)We never did hit the casinos when we were there, so maybe we SHOULD head back...
